With all the TV shows showing him as a bumbler and his outrageous stage show, Ozzy Osbourne has become kind of a joke. But back when he was the frontman for Black Sabbath, he led one of the first heavy garage/fuzz rock and roll bands. Leaders in the development of REAL Metal (not hair band shit), Black Sabbath’s songs were complex, often featuring quick time changes and overlayered guitar lines that the best of all time could never duplicate. Tommy Iomi and Bill Ward were the stuff of legends.
Brownout knows this. They made a tribute covers record. Then they made another, late last year. Awesome stuff.
