Laid down primarily in Los Angeles with producer Rick Rubin, ’13’ features Rage Against The Machine‘s Brad Wilk, who took up his place behind the drumkit after Bill Ward‘s swift departure from the reunion, and has been described by Ozzy Osbourne as ‘possibly the most important of album his career’.
“Black Sabbath don’t write songs you hear on the radio, we write musical pieces,” Ozzy states in a trailer released earlier this year.
“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.”
Black Sabbath have already debuted several new tracks during an Australasian tour which took place throughout April and early May.
