  • New Album Called "13"

    New Album called "13". I've also gotten word that the album is "13" not "Thirteen".

    Due June 2013

    New Drummer is Brad Wilk.

    Discuss.

    (Yes, I know a few threads have been posted already, but I want to consolidate discussions in one place.)

    ----

    BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND (January 13, 2013)–Today, the 13th of January 2013, rock legends BLACK SABBATH have announced the title of their new album, 13, which will be released this June (exact date TBA). The original BLACK SABBATH–OZZY OSBOURNE (vocals), TONY IOMMI (guitar) and GEEZER BUTLER (bass)–have recorded the album primarily in Los Angeles and were joined at the sessions by drummer Brad Wilk (Rage Against The Machine). Produced by Rick Rubin (seven-time Grammy winner, two of those as Producer of the Year), the album will be released on Vertigo (worldwide) and Vertigo/Republic in the U.S. 13 marks the Grammy-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees’ return to Vertigo, the band’s original label; it’s the group’s first studio album together since 1978’s Never Say Die! They have sold over 70 million albums together.
    In advance of the album’s release, BLACK SABBATH will head to New Zealand, Australia and Japan for live performances (see below for tour dates). Additional tour plans will be revealed in the coming months.
    BLACK SABBATH’s initial tour dates are as follows:

    Can't wait. I actually like the title. I'm eager to hear how they sound together after all these years.
    The dog's name is Pete. If he tries to mount you in the middle of the night, say "no" sternly. But don't look him in the eye.

      Cool ! its upon us finally! I'd say its an innocuous title. Thinking about it, seems to me it would be a bit juvenile for men in their early to mid 60's to name their album something on par with a Death Metal band. So I don't hate the title. Rick Rubin is said to have played the band their first album, and proposed to the guys "Suppose you just recorded this album, what do you do next?" Well didn't they already do that? Is it safe to guess Rubin never listened to Paranoid? Or is this meant in some way that Paranoid and everything that came after should be ignored? Don't get me wrong, I'm all for an old school sound; but Rubin did the same thing with Metallica 6 years ago and the results were songs like Day That Never Comes, which really did sound like an exercise in self parody. I'll keep an open mind, and I give Iommi much more credit for being able to think constructively then James Hetfield, and implement new riffs that might be obvious who they come from vs.the other Sabbath song it sounds a lot like. If its at least as good as The Devil You Know I will go ape shit in June.

      Also VERY VERY glad Clufetos is out. Brad Wilk has great feel and can really hit a heavy groove. I'm a fair weather Rage Against The Machine fan due to the Rappish vocals and Gimmicky guitar playing but Ive always liked their drummer.

          Can't wait to hear what the new album 35 years in the making will sound like, I know it will an awesome one just like all the eight albums released with Ozzy were and still are.

          God bless Ozzy, Tony, Geezer, and Bill, and God bless Black Sabbath!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            I'm keeping my hopes in check. Why? Ozzy's voice. It's been shot for awhile and the heavy vocal tricks/layering/processing may be okay for his solo albums but will not fit a Sabbath album... so I'm leaving plenty of room to be pleasantly surprised.

                Look on the bright side. At least it isn't "Black Sabbath vol. 9".
                Well I donít want no preacher telling me about the god in the sky
                No I donít want no one to tell me where Iím gonna go when I die
                I wanna live my life, I donít want people telling me what to do
                I just believe in myself, ícause no one else is true

                  Great news! I wasn't that excited about the title at first, but thinking about it (13 being unlucky and a bad omen and all) it really works. I've never paid that much attention to Brad Wilk's drumming so I'm listening to RATM and Audioslave to form an opinion.

                    I think there's gonna be something relevant in the title. I'm not sure it's as simple as just plain old '13'. There's something else in it. As has been said already, it's '13' and not 'Thirteen'. Released on the 13th in the year of 13. What next? 13 songs? Is there something in the 'one (1)' and the 'three (3)'? I'm guessing it's not just a red herring.

                      Brad Wilk? Sounds like one of those fake products that try to knock off the real one by having a similar name like Adibas or Naik, in the way these guys are ripping of black sabbath, BRING BILL BACK!
                      Still I wonder what its like to be loved, instead of hiding in myself...

                        Hmmmm. Well he does have the same initials as Bill. They've swapped a BW for a BW.

                        In fact, if his name had been BRAD WILL, it would have been an anagram of BILL WARD.

                          Glad to finally see an official announcement. The album was originally announced for April, but I hope they play at least one new song on their tour.

                            Its been said before that the album will be 13 songs indeed (15 songs recorded , the studio album to be 13 and 2 bonus tracks to apparently appear on other album editions) , I'm fine with the album title , it's not their most original but it could certainly have a much deeper meaning when we have an over look on the album theme and song titles , I just hope the album artwork will be something a bit more special ! also notice that Brad is mentioned as a session drummer and which could basically mean that Tommy might be the one to keep touring with the band live ! my guess is that they don't want to tag anyone as a permanent member to keep that 'original line up' tag as intact as possible !

                            Too bad the album will be released in June though ! I guess it might be for marketing reasons , I believe they will probably be hitting the U.S by the time it gets released and heavily promote it by touring rather than releasing it a couple of months earlier and tour the U.S later in June ! I believe a single will be released sometime in between to keep the anticipation as high as possible ...
