The Many Faces Of BLACK SABBATH 3-Disc Tribute Box Set To Be Released In November; Details Revealed

According to Amazon UK a 3-disc Black Sabbath box set, entitled The Many Faces Of Black Sabbath, will be released on November 3rd. It is available for pre-order via the link above.

Following is the official description issued for the package:

"Black Sabbath is - along with Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple - the most important British hard rock band of all time. With its dark, mystical and obsessive sound, Black Sabbath built a unique brand that has influenced countless groups since its inception in the late 60s until today. As usual, in our series The Many Faces, we will take you into the fantastic and great world of Black Sabbath. We will revisit forgotten collaborations, its best songs and the artists (and even music styles) that the band have influenced. 

We started with Disc 1, entitled 'The Players (and more)' that features musicians who have been part the band. To begin with, who else than Tony Iommi, the founding guitarist and the only member who has been in all the band's formations. Tony is synonymous with Black Sabbath. We also can't forget to mention that this first disc contains potent versions of three classic Sabbath's songs ('Paranoid', 'Children Of The Grave' and 'Hole In The Sky') by rock stars such as Vince Neil (Mötley Crüe), George Lynch (Dokken) and Californians Racer X and Agent Steel. 

Disc 2 is dedicated to the band's greatest songs with versions from countries like the United States, Germany and Argentina. This is just a simple of passion that Black Sabbath generates around the world. And, as a special treat, we allow ourselves the freedom to include three classic Ozzy Osbourne's tracks from his solo career ('Mr. Crowley', 'Crazy Train' and 'Bark At The Moon'). These, in versions featuring guitar god Yngwie Malmsteen, Dee Snider (from Twisted Sister), Jason Bonham (son of John Bonham from Led Zeppelin) and core fans Forever Say Die. 

Finally, Disc 3 - titled 'The Legacy' - features 14 tracks of stoner rock, the underground music genre that was born from the sound of the original Black Sabbath, especially the period between his debut Black Sabbath in 1970 thru Sabotage in 1975. So, bands like Freedom Hawk, Sasquatch or Isaak (among many others) bring back all the mystique and magic that we all love in hard rock into the XXI century."

Black Sabbath have revealed that the legendary band will record another album, and embark on one final tour.

Speaking to, Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne states: "The whole Sabbath experience this time around was great. We all made friends, we didn't fuck around, we all knew that we had a job to do, and we did it. It was a lot of fun. So we're going to do one more album, and a final tour.

Once the dust settled after the last tour we started discussing the idea, because we were getting asked about it all the time. I said to Sharon 'What's going on? Because if there's no more Sabbath I want to get on with my own thing again' and she came back and said 'Let me look into it'. Three weeks later I asked her about it again, and she said 'Oh, I still have to talk to so and so...' and I said 'Sharon, I ain't fucking 21 any more, if we're going to do I want to do it before I'm 70!'

Time isn't on our side! So she made the call and came back and said 'Yeah, the record company wants another album'. I believe Rick Rubin is going to do it with us again."
