  • Keyboards On Headless Cross

    I'm not a member of Hell's Angels, I just thought the name sounded cool. It was too late when I realized what i did and what Hell's Angels was. Hell, I don't even own a motorcycle. Anyway...

    Did anyone besides me actually like the keyboards on the Headless Cross album? I find them rather interesting. It actually makes the album sound scary unlike all the Slayer stuff I listen too. Everyone I talk to says the keyboards are what make the album suck.

    What do you guys think?

    Well pretty much any fan of slayer isnt going to like the slick 80s sound, especially when its awash with keyboards.

    Personally, I think they're fitting on Headless Cross. It definitely gives Headless Cross and Black Moon an advantage.

      I think they belong in there as much as the drums. I like them.

        Well man, Geoff Nichols kick a bunch of asses. Sabbath lost a very important member when they gave Geoff a ride, but, what we can do? I'm happy about his actual work with the Bold Brother, and that's why I'll write a report about Geoff for my first note section on a argentinian Heavy Metal magazine.

          Devil & Daughter Live (esp Copenhagen 89) has a really prominent keyboard sound, that actually sounds damn good.

            Never understood that anti-Keyboard sentiment, in the first place. No Sabbath song ever had a keyboard solo or a guitar-organ duel (or am I mistaken?), so why do some people keep scoring hits even at the simple "texturing" keyboard sound?

              Why does so many people think that a keybord or synt makes the music soft? I really lika the Headless Cross album and its produktion. Isīt it "the sabbath sound" that we want? I think that it was very right when it came out and it still sounds great to me.

                I think the album would sound unnatural without the keyboards. Geoff Nichols is a genius at the keys; his contribution was definitely a positive one.

                    Davids right, Geoff Nichols kicks ass. The thing that gets me is why didn't they ever count him as an original member? I'm a big fan of the ozzy era stuff but I also have Heaven and Hell and Headless Cross. It has him off to the side, it doesn't have him on the main members list. Was he ever counted as an official member?

                      Well, he is not an "original" member, and he was never counted as a member, except maybe for the Seventh Star era, but he was even out of stage the most of the time. He have played bass on one charity show in ī88, too.

                        Management kept BSing about Sabbath having to be a four-piece band. That's why he wasn't reconised as a full member of the band until Cross Purposes.

                          Think with me... imagine a pie. Four pieces of pie, have bigger pieces than fice pieces... now, transform that pie in a mont of money. That explain a lot of thing..

                            Headless Cross is my least favorite Sabbath album for two reasons. First, the lyrics in my opinion are awful. And the keyboards, are just too prominent...it takes away from the guitars.
