Sixty is the new 666! As heavy metal crunches into its fifth decade, the classic earthshaking early music remains timeless, and continues to perpetually enchant and transfix new generations. At the same time, the bodies of metal masters like Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, and Motorhead are accumulating mortal years. As Black Sabbath releases its first studio album with Ozzy Osbourne since 1978, this week’s history lesson checks out recent recordings by metal kings still active past age sixty, including Sabbath, Priest, Motorhead, Blue Cheer, Saxon, actor Christopher Lee, Root, and more!
