Episode #2 Black Sabbath (1975-1979)
Welcome to this weeks episode of Heavy Metal History. This week we pick up where we left off in the history of the progenitors of the genre.
We go through the years 1975-1979 of Black Sabbaths storied career discussing the drug fueled creations of Black Sabbath in the waning days of their career, Technical Ecstasy and Never Say Die. These albums are a fascinating tale of excess and the inevitable toll it takes on creativity. We also discuss two seminal albums that came out in 1979 at the tale end of Black Sabbaths tenure.
Albums we discussed this week:
- Black Sabbath - "Technical Ecstasy"
- Black Sabbath - "Never Say Die!"
- Motorhead - "Overkill"
- AC/DC - "Highway to Hell"
