Black Sabbath – Vol 4

$48.95

Vol. 4 is the fourth studio album by English rock band Black Sabbath, released in September 1972.

Vol. 4 saw Black Sabbath beginning to experiment with the heavy sound they had become known for. In June 2013 Mojo declared, “If booze and dope had helped fuel Sabbath’s earlier albums, Vol. 4 is their cocaine … Despite their spiraling addictions, musically Vol. 4 is another ambitious outing. The band’s heavy side remains intact on the likes of ‘Tomorrow’s Dream’, ‘Cornucopia’ and the seismic ‘Supernaut’ (a firm favorite of Frank Zappa, featuring Bill Ward’s soul-inspired breakdown), but the guitar intro on ‘St. Vitus Dance’ possesses a jaunty, Led Zeppelin-flavoured quality, while ‘Laguna Sunrise’ is an evocative neo-classical Iommi instrumental.” After being up all night and watching the sunrise at Laguna Beach, Iommi composed the song. In the studio, an orchestra accompanied Iommi’s guitar, although they refused to perform until their parts were properly written out. The same orchestra performed on “Snowblind”.

Kerrang! magazine listed the album at No. 48 among the “100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums of All Time”. Rolling Stone ranked it 14th on their 2017 list of “100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time”. The album was also included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
