I was too young to see him when he was singing for Black Sabbath, and I was about ten years too young to see the original lineup of Black Sabbath. I wish I had known they did a reunion tour in the 90s, I would loved to have seen them. At least I got to see Geezer Butler when he toured with Ozzy back around 94 or so. That's half a Sabbath, anyway...

I've got the Blue Danube which I love to play and is excellent quality. Is great in Orbiter with Sputniks 2001 addon! The majority of tracks I have are old school DooM tracks from various consoles as well as an assortment of Star Wars tracks. My favorites being Standby and Rogue Title And,, who can forget,, Imperial March!

Speaking of Dio, here's a song from a concert I actually attended in Philadelphia in what, 1985 maybe? I even remember the pattern painted on Vivian Cambell's guitar from that night.



As for old school Black Sabbath, just search around on youtube for some awesome vids. There is a youtube of Cali Jam 74 which is audio only, but it is a very crude pirate recording and it is amazing to hear Tony Iommi's guitar and Ozzy's voice. Just raw and hard and kickass, the way old school heavy metal was back in the 1970s, before the Hollywood hairspray crowd came along. Just great rock and roll, have a listen:

That brings back some old high school memories. Add Iron Maiden to those, too. For some reason, I just doesn't sound as good on my modern bells-and-whistles stereo as it did on the jury-rigged stereo/portable CD I had in hooked up in my '79 Gemini (called a Buick Opel in the US, I think)!

BTW, these people think your choice of music indicates your personality type:

Since I like multiple types of music, I guess I have both low and high self-esteem at the same time...

whatever

Awesome! Great vid, thanks for posting. Definitely adding that one to my list.

I agree, that was cool, Urwumpe.

I like heavy metal, but I'm not a fan of the stuff where it just sounds the "singer" is choking on the microphone. What is that, death metal or black metal or whatever they call it?

Both styles using grunting as vocal style. Viking metal also relies often on it. Trash metal more rarely, but it was heard. And it is unheardof in heavy Metal and power metal.

And no, I can also live well without it.

There is only one Black Metal band, I can listen to without getting sick, and this is Agathodaimon, at least the older more progressive records of them, like "higher art of rebellion" are very unusual for the pretty fundamentalist black metal scene.

Its in Death Metal, its in Black Metal, its in lots of metal these days.

It has also grown on me to the point where I prefer it in many cases. Although Nightwish is still one of my favorite bands. I guess thats what being a metal head with a musical background will do to you *shrug*

The guy must have included emocore, punk/hardcore and gothic into the rock/Heavy Metal line and ignored the vast majority of the scene. I have strong doubts the professor saw the most famous case study of Heavy Metal in the wild nature "Full Metal Village", a German documentary about the Village Wacken and the worlds largest Heavy metal festival, which they host for many years now. It is really hard to find examples of low-selfesteem and lazyness there. And not outgoing does also not fit well then.

Low selfesteem. Did this guy talk to Steven Tyler?

Metallica's new album comes out in a few days. I can't wait, it looks like they're going back to the old school days a little bit.

I've been listening to Ozzy Osborne's music recently. Very good.

I've been using http://www.playlist.com because I don't own enough of his music.
