BLACK SABBATH - Paranoia, Himmel und Hölle

Almost exactly 50 years ago, on September 18, 1970 - the anniversary of Jimi Hendrix' death - Black Sabbath released their second album "Paranoid". After their debut at the beginning of 1970, which in a way was the beginning of heavy metal, they cemented their reputation with their successor and created songs for eternity. Less than a decade later, after Ozzy Osbourne's temporary departure, the band reinvented themselves with new vocalist Ronnie James Dio and producer Martin Birch. The 1980 album "Heaven And Hell" still stands for high-class heavy rock today and still causes religious wars among fans over the question of when the Sabbath star shone brightest.
