"Sabotage is not only Black Sabbath's best record since Paranoid, it might be their best ever. Even with the usual themes of death, destruction and mental illness running throughout this album, the unleashed frenzy and raw energy they've returned to here comes like a breath of fresh air." — Rolling Stone, 1975
Black Sabbath began work on their sixth album in February 1975, again in England at Morgan Studios in Willesden, London. The release from Ozzy and the guys — Sabotage — was greeted with favorable reviews by the media. The album contains a mixture of heavy, powerful songs such as "Hole In the Sky" alongside experimental softer songs such as "Supertzar" and "Am I Going Insane."
Sabotage: Super Deluxe Edition introduces 16 live tracks (13 of which are previously unreleased) that were recorded in 1975 during the quartet's U.S. tour for the album. The performances include songs that span the group's career, from the title track to its 1970 debut Black Sabbath to "Spiral Architect" and "Sabbra Cadabra" from its previous album, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (1973). Sabotage is represented as well with live takes of "Hole In The Sky" and "Megalomania."
The music is accompanied by in-depth liner notes that tell the story of the album through quotes from band members and the music media along with rare photos and press clippings from the era. Also included is a 1975 Madison Square Garden replica concert book and Sabotage 1975 tour color poster.
Sabbath's sweeping and masterful metamorphosis away from that tradition spawned heavy metal music, inventing the template for everything that would follow. With crushing rhythms, torpedo riffs, haunting songs, and Ozzy's other-worldly vocals, the band conjured a dark, menacing, and resonant sound that reverberates still.
Black Sabbath is often cited as pioneers of heavy metal music. The band helped define the genre, were ranked by MTV as the "Greatest Metal Band" of all time, and placed second in VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock" list. Rolling Stone magazine ranked them No. 85 in their "100 Greatest Artists of All Time." They have sold more than 70 million records worldwide. Black Sabbath was inducted into the U.K. Music Hall of Fame in 2005 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. They have also won two Grammy Awards for Best Metal Performance.
