Out of my gloom I rise up from my tomb into impending gloom

Original drummer Bill Ward couldn't make it and Tony Iommi's lymphoma diagnosis caused Ozzy to go on an 18 month bender, but all in all "God is Dead?" Black Sabbath's first single from their new album 13, seems to cut the mustard. Experts agree that Tony Iommi's Sabbath Bloody Sabbath guitar sound broke barriers of distortion-physics and ultimately gave many stoners reason to live another day. I'm happy to report that Iommi's metal on metal guitar sound—complete with those constant pick squeaks—is present and accounted for. Also, Ozzy can still rhyme. We're good.
