The original lineup of metal titans Black Sabbath-- Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler (minus drummer Bill Ward, who left the band last year)-- are releasing their first studio album together since 1978's Never Say Die!. Their new album 13 is due out in June via Vertigo, and it was produced by Rick Rubin.

On 13, the band is filled out by drummer Brad Wilk from Rage Against the Machine. The band's reunion was announced last year when they were revealed as Lollapalooza headliners.

This spring, they'll tour New Zealand, Australia, and Japan. More dates will be announced later this year. Below their itinerary, watch the band perform "War Pigs" in 1970.

It's not the original line-up without Bill Ward.

Ward was a huge part of their sound imo. If they can find a drummer that has his brutality, I'd be interested. Brad Wilk is a good drummer, but he doesn't have the chops for this type of metal imo. But who knows, maybe he can expand to this style.

I'm a vintage Black Sabbath fan, but I'm not a fan of old men continuing to try to make the same rock music they made in their youth (especially front men and other vocalists). As far as I can tell, Ozzy is well past his expiration date. I'm not sure about the others.

I'll give the album a listen. Rubin is pretty good at pulling the best out of a band.

Epic news is Epic... talk about hotly anticipated.

Rubin will bring out the best in these guys, it'll probably go down as one of their very best albums.

autotune/time shift tools will fix ozzy in the studio. If the writing is there per the old days, I'm into it at least as an album, but I may not go out to see them play it etc.

With Brad Wilk in the mix, it makes me wonder if they are going to put some kind of powerpop booty rock album together, which is not something I would be interested in. But, it's Rick Rubin, I hope he gets them to put up the good writes they are capable of.

Hopefully this will be as good as Technical Ecstasy and Never Say Die!.

From past interviews with Ward it appears that the problem is Ozzy's management, cough, cough - Sharon. Supposedly Ozzy wanted Ward and Butler to get a significantly smaller share of revenue.
