God is Dead? Nah, Black Sabbath is Alive!

Black Sabbath unleashed "God is Dead" today, the first single from their reunion album "13" and took the rock world and their followers by storm.

Hell yeah, Black Sabbath is back!

This marks the first time in 35 years that the original members: Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler (with the exception of drummer, Bill Ward, who declined to join his erstwhile buddies for the project) of the pioneering heavy metal band have reunited to record an album under the watchful eye of veteran producer Rick Rubin.

In lieu of Ward, the band asked Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine to play on drums. "13" is set to be released via Vertigo Records/Republic Records June 11, 2013.

Lost in the darkness
I pain from the light
Faith of my father, my brother, my maker, and savior
Help me make it through the night

Blood on my conscience
And murdering mind
Out of the gloom I rise up from my tomb into impending doom
Now my body is my shrine

The blood runs free
The rain turns red
Give me the wine
You keep the bread
The voices echo in my head
Is God alive or is God dead?
Is God dead?

Rivers of evil
Run through dying land
Swimming in sorrow, they kill, steal and borrow, there is no tomorrow
For the sinners will be damned

Ashes to ashes
You cannot exhume us all
Who do you trust when corruption and lust, creed of all the unjust
Leaves you empty and unwhole

When will this nightmare be over? Tell me
When can I empty my head?
Will someone tell me the answer?
Is God really dead?
Is God really dead?

To save God my philosophy
Until my dying breath
I transfer from reality
Into a living dead
I empathize with enemies
Until the time is right
With God and Satan at my side
From darkness will come light

I watch the rain as it turns red
Give me more wine, I don't need bread
These riddles that live in my head
I don't believe that God is dead
God is dead

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Wondering if we don't need to gain on the other side

Do you believe a word
What the good book said?
Or is it just a holy fairytale and God is dead?
God is dead
God is dead
God is dead
God is dead


But still the voices in my head
Are telling me that God is dead

The blood pours down
The rain turns red
I don't believe that God is dead
God is dead
God is dead
God is dead

*You can pre-order '13' HERE

*Shoutout to Takati97 for transcribing the lyrics of "God is Dead"

Crazy Train: The Prince of Darkness admits to returning back to the Dark Side

Ozzy Osbourne announced on his Facebook page today that for the past year and a half he was back to his old ways, cavorting with evil spirits (read: drugs and alcohol) but admits that he has seen the light and vows to kick them out of his system for good.

Here is Ozzy Osbourne's letter to his family, friends, and fans alike:

"For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an asshole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober.

Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I’m just trying to be a better person.

I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period………and my fans.

God Bless,

Never Surrender

Last Song Syndrome: Corey Hart's Sunglasses at Night, a song I never heard for more than 2 decades. Damn, Detroit FM radio; now I got these lines stuck in my head- 

Although I hate the said song, I used to like his other power ballad and hit, Never Surrender, which won him the 1985 Juno Award for "Single of the Year" in Canada.

Cheesy and all, I still love the 80s!

The Story of an American Band

 Going err soaring high watching "History of The Eagles" on Showtime. One of my favorite bands while growing up. Their albums were and still are a staple in my car's CD player, especially on long lonely drives along the Interstate highways that I found myself during my wanderings. Yes, the "warm smell of colitas" is still "rising up through the air" for this "Desperado."
