This special two-hour metal history lesson celebrates five decades of Black Sabbath, marking the first heavy metal band’s final career tour appearance in their Birmingham, England, hometown on February 4. The Earth’s crust trembles and the heavens shake to the sounds of Black Sabbath songs spanning nearly 50 years, plus faithful tributes by Sabbath apostles Faith No More, Pantera, Slayer, Sleep, Metallica, Entombed, Helmet, Soundgarden, Megadeth, Anthrax, Opeth, and others, all household names in their own rights. Know your Roots—we love you all!

No Tony Martin era songs? His run with Sabbath was awesome. Headless Cross is a phenomenal album. Same goes for Tyr, The Eternal Idol, Cross Purposes and I even loved Forbidden. Give Mr. Martin some love!
At least we will have each song stapled into a giant collection 😀
