Fifty years ago this week, Black Sabbath released its classic third LP, Master of Reality. The record casts off the jazzy, blues influences of the first two albums and plunged deeper into the dark, doomy depths of Sabbath’s heavy metal experiment. Join us for a track-by-track replay, featuring rehearsal and live material, plus tributes by acolytes including Sleep, Cathedral, and White Zombie. Hail the masters —know your Roots!
