  • I'm still intrigued by it. I don't believe it can be as simple as unlucky-13 or the fact that it's 2013. The fact Joe made a point of saying it's 13 not thirteen is a clue I'm sure! I had the same thought as somebody else. 1 (drummer) + 3 (original) but I don't think that's it.

    Ah well.. unless the inspiration-fairy pays me a visit I'll just have to wait and see! :o)

    • I have no problem with the title being 13. I see it more of a reference to the self titled album being released on Friday the 13th as opposed to the year 2013 myself. And I was surprised to hear that Brad Wilk is going to be the drummer. I've always liked Brad in RATM so I have no problem drumming for Sabbath. We shall see soon enough I suppose.

      • I'm excited about Brad Wilk, if only because it's such an unexpected, left-of-field, out-of-the box choice. There are a hundred more obvious drummers.. the usual guns-for-hire guys who they could have got on board with one phone call. That they chose a relatively obscure drummer from a band who are way out of the mainstream can only mean that his drumming was inspirational and exciting enough for them to take a chance on him.

        I'm buzzing to hear this album more and more each day! :o)

        • Here are some interesting facts about the number 13...

          There are usually 13 witches in a coven.

          Most religions have one profit or messiah and 12 followers. Making 13.

          In a Pentagram with a circle ratio of 13, each arm of the star will equal 12.36, the number of lunar months,days and hours in a solar year. Add the arms together and you get the number of full moons in 5 years.

          In Mesoamerican divination, 13 is the number of important cycles of fortune/misfortune

          13 is the age that adepts usually start to learn Witchcraft.

              Doesn't necessarily mean they are, or that those facts about 13 lead to the album title.

                  Thought so, but you never know, someone might have seen that and taken it literally.

                    That's a good point. Sabbath could have went with a by-the-numbers, "safe" drummer. The fact that they didn't means they're up to something.

                    Isn't that also the age for a bar mitzvah? Maybe Sabbath has converted to Judaism? (wink, wink)

                    • Looks like they are already having listening parties so I must assume the record is complete. Ozzy looks great with his hair a little shorter again.

                        ^^^Awesome pic! It seems odd to me that they will wait till June with the record already being done. Maybe that's a good month for album releases? No other big releases planned at that time so less competition for sales? Or maybe there is more post-post production to be done?

                          I wonder was that pic taken before or after he burned himself ? Great pic though!

                            I would imagine after as you can see Ozzy's hand is all wrapped up.

                              His hair and face looks fine though.
                              Do you hear the thunder raging in the sky?

                              In the age of reason, how do we survive?
                              The protocols of evil ravaging so many lives?

                                But his hair is bit shorter now, so I assume he cut the burned part out.
