HEAVEN & HELL FEELING DEVILISH ON NEW ALBUM:
February 10, 2009
Heaven And Hell, the band featuring the post-Ozzy Osbourne members of Black Sabbath, will release its first album under that name, “The Devil You Know,” April 28 on Rhino.
The set is Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice’s first studio release since the 1992 Sabbath album “Dehumanizer,” and was preceded by three new songs on the recent compilation “Black Sabbath: The Dio Years.”
Song titles include “Bible Black,” “Rock & Roll Angel,” “Breaking Into Heaven,” “Atom & Evil” and “Eating the Cannibals.”
Iommi told Billboard last summer that “it really is Black Sabbath, whatever we do,” but said the artists had chosen to tour as Heaven And Hell “so everyone knows what they’re getting [and] so people won’t expect to hear ‘Iron Man’ and all those songs. We’ve done them for so many years, it’s nice to do just all the stuff with did with Ronnie again.”
As for Osbourne, he is gearing up for the debut later this year of a new Fox variety show with his family, “Osbournes: Reloaded.”
