Black Sabbath's 13 album is available today and with it the iconic metal innovators have released a video for the single 'God Is Dead' to ease the suffering of those that will have to wait to get their hands on a copy.

Anticipation for Black Sabbath's '13', the band's first full album in 35 years featuring singer Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler, has reached a fever pitch. Since Black Sabbath (initially including original drummer Bill Ward) announced a new album, fans have patiently been waiting for new material while supporting Iommi and his cancer battle. Thankfully, Iommi has been showing major signs of improvement since his early 2012 diagnosis..

The new music video for 'God is Dead?' asks questions of faith and religion with a backdrop of the world's atrocities. Despite the visions of war, death, crime, greed, ignorance, gluttony and hopelessness throughout the video, the most powerful scenes are of the faithful turning their backs on religion as they throw their connections to God down onto the pavement.

Video footage set through the scope of an all-seeing eye shows vintage footage of Black Sabbath performing live.



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
