When you hear the name Black Sabbath, you think of madman Ozzy Osbourne and timeless classics like ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Paranoid.’ If you’re a fan of hard rock and heavy metal you might also reference songs like ‘Heaven and Hell,’ and ‘The Mob Rules,’ which featured metal pioneer Ronnie James Dio on vocals. Dio left the band for the first time in 1983 and was replaced by a cavalcade of singers like Ian Gillian, Glenn Hughes, Ray Gillen, and Tony Martin. Sabbath released 7 studio albums from 1986-1995. They were not commercial successes by any means, and were usually trumped and overshadowed by massive releases from former singer Ozzy Osbourne, but these albums contain gems that will rival the biggest metal songs of the 80’s. Here are five Black Sabbath songs you may not know now but will become favorites after you listen to them.
