Surprisingly, Warner Brothers never released a live Black Sabbath album in the U.S. during Ozzy Osbourne's years with the band. It wasn't until 1982's double-LP Live Evil (which featured Ronnie James Dio instead of the Oz) that Warner finally put out a live Sabbath album in the U.S. Released in England in 1980, Live at Last is a single LP that was recorded before Osbourne's departure but didn't come out until after he had left…
With the release of 2013's 13, metal deities Black Sabbath came back not just with their first studio album since 1995, but with a return to the inspired sludginess and demonic crunch of some of their classic early material. The band embarked on a massive tour in support of the album, and Gathered in Their Masses captures live performances from the first two kick-off gigs in Melbourne, Australia. All of the band's original members are present except drummer Bill Ward, and the group powered through set lists somewhat light on material from newer album 13, but padded generously with crowd favorites from the band's untouchable first six albums. Newer jams like "End of the Beginning" sit beside metal blueprints like "Iron Man" and "War Pigs," and the sound of a post-apocalyptic soiree can be heard in the energy of the crowd and the band alike.
Exclusive release for www.AvaxHome.ru. This is complete show from Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne, Monday, 29th April & Wendesday 1st May, 2013 with 3 bonus tracks.
The legendary heavy metal band fronted by Ozzy Osbourne captured live in performance in Melbourne, Australia in 2013. The tour was in support of the band's new album, '13' (2013), and saw them perform a mixture of new tracks and old favourites such as 'War Pigs', 'Paranoid' and 'Black Sabbath'.
