With their new album due for release later this year, Black Sabbath have posted in-studio footage from their time in Los Angeles. The short video can be seen below through YouTube.
The video shows Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler in LA with producer Rick Rubin, where they were joined behind the drumkit by Rage Against The Machine‘s Brad Wilk after Bill Ward pulled out of the reunion last year citing contractual disagreements.
During the trailer, Ozzy describes the record as ‘possibly the most important of his career': “Black Sabbath don’t write songs you hear on the radio, we write musical pieces,” he declares.
“I wanted it to sound current, yet still have that Sabbath vibe. This Black Sabbath album is quite possibly the most important album of my career. I guarantee there is going to be a Black Sabbath album.”
A planned European tour was largely cancelled last year in the wake of Tony Iommi’s cancer diagnosis. In the end, a headline spot at Download proved to be the only surviving major date of the original itinerary.
