Black Sabbath Going Old School On New Album

(hennemusic) As Black Sabbath are nearing the completion of their new album, "13", the band are revealing more details about the project, which signals a return to their roots.

Rolling Stone reports producer Rick Rubin sat the band down in his Los Angeles home before the recording sessions began, and played them their first album, 1970's brutally primitive "Black Sabbath".

"I wanted to make an album that stood alongside their first four albums," says Rubin. "The first album wasn't a straightforward heavy metal record. You could hear the jazz influence, so that was the goal, and to capture that live interaction."

For the band, Rubin's challenge to live up to their early sound was initially disorienting. "It was confusing," says bassist Geezer Butler. "We had to unlearn everything we'd learned." more on this story
