Is it still a cliche to say that Ozzie Osbourne is indecipherable? Well, he is, but Black Sabbath could get Wayne Newton to sing vocals because they have the great equalizer with Rick Rubin in the producer’s chair. Via Pitchfork:
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.
