Are black sabbath satanic?
It depends. If your talking about Ozzy's sabbath, i don't think so. Though some lyrics contain evil imagery, they are not promoting satanism. I am not a satanist and believe in god and love sabbath. The reason why their music contains some evilness in it is because it was their new expierment of creating a scarier rock. "Instead of people going to see scary movies, why not listen to scary music?" Ozzy said once. If your talking after Ozzy though, you'll find some albums are very satanic such as Born Again. Some Dio stuff is across the line, but some of it, if you are not a satanist, is good.

Jihad has the literal meaning of exerting our best and greatest effort to achieve something. It is not the equivalent of war, for which the Arabic word is qital. Jihad has a much wider connotation and embraces every kind of striving in God's cause. A mujahid is one who is sincerely devoted to his or… her cause; who uses all physical, intellectual, and spiritual resources to serve it; who confront any power that stands in its way; and, when necessary, dies for this cause. Jihad in the way of God is our struggle to win God's good pleasure, to establish His religion's supremacy, and to make His Word prevail if u mean the band black sabbath then Ozzy's main influence was the beatles ( Full Answer )
No. Ozzy Osbourne originally quit Black Sabbath to do a solo career. Then fans wanted a reunion so he rejoined. Due to his drug/alcohol abuse he was then fired from the band.
The lyrics are as follows: Finished with my woman 'cause she couldn't help me with my mind People think I'm insane because I am frowning all the time All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy Think I'll lose my mind if I don't find something to pacify Can you help me? … occupy my brain, Oh yeah I need someone to show me the things in life that I can't find I can't see the things that make true happiness I must be blind Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry Happiness I cannot feel and love to me is so unreal And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state I tell you to enjoy life I wish I could but it's too late ( Full Answer )

Originally they were called Earth, and very briefly The Polka Tulk Blues Band or just Polka Tulk. And then after that they were called black sabbath.
Too many to name, but these are my top 5: Supernaut Sabbath Bloody Sabbath War Pigs Snowblind NIB
Tony Iommi was very controlling, Ozzy abused drugs and stuff too much so after he left around 79 the band slowly fell apart.
No. Like many band, they had vague flirtations with the occult, but overall, Black Sabbath's lyrics actually manifested a fear of things occult, dark, and evil.
He was one of the original members; so in the mid-60s under other names (Polka Tulk Blues Band, Earth). They became Sabbath in 68.
6 bass , 6 treble and 6 mid. C# tuning for Iommis guitar with 9-38 strings (yes two 38 strings, for the A and E that were banjo strings).
They took influence from Blues, Jazz, Rock n' Roll.. Ozzy Osbourne himself was playing bass in a band called Magic Lanterns prior to the formation of Black Sabbath. The band claims that the name Black Sabbath came from a Mario Bava film by the same name, although some dispute this, and claim it was …taken from a song by the same name on Coven's "Witchcraft Destroys Minds and Reaps Souls" album, released in 1969. The people who make this claim also tend to point out that Coven had a bassist by the name of Os Osbourne, and also claim that this is what inspired John Michael Osbourne to start calling himself "Ozzy".

Most of them! All the original members are still alive, as are Dio, Appice, Martin, Gillan, Hughes, most of the drummers, bassists and keyboard players; as far as I know, Cozy Powell is the only dead one.
Black Sabbath used to wait at bigger-bands concerts in case they didn't show up. They never thought that the plan would work until one day the band Jethro Tull didn't show up at one of their concerts and the manager of the concert let Black Sabbath go on instead. The fans were reluctant at first b…ut by the end of the concert they were going crazy for Black Sabbath. ( Full Answer )
When Ozzy was a teenager, he fell in love with The Beatles. He was inspired to start his own band. Ozzy posted a sign at a local music shop, requesting that he needs a gig. He later met with Geezer Butler and joined a band called 'Music Machine'. After Music Machine split up, Ozzy served some jail t…ime. After months went by, he asked the store clerk to take down the advertisement, but the store clerk never did. A couple of months after that, Ozzy's former schoolmate Tony Iommi saw the ad and, eager to find a gig, went to Ozzy with his friend Bill Ward (Drummer). Ozzy, Iommi, and Ward still needed a bassist. Ozzy suggested Geezer Butler as a bassist and Black Sabbath was formed. ( Full Answer )
They live in England, black sabbath is a English rock band formed in Birmingham in 1968.
a huge one as time went on, they inspired the likes of Slash and Metallica to say the least and look who they inspired.
The one you're probably thinking of is Bill Ward. There have been others in his absence, though.
Because they are an outstanding band, with amazing riffs, melodies, basslines and overall tracks. They are the first heavy metal band, and were the heaviest in the world at the time - and they're still pretty heavy. They have an immensely talented guitarist and have had the best vocalists, bassists …and drummers in the business. At the time, they were the darkest band around, and again even by today's standards they're fairly dark, although not in a deliberately antagonistic way. They embody the feelings of youth who feel their futures going down the drain with their doomy, sludgy sound and downbeat lyrics. ( Full Answer )
I only know hearsay,something to do with a frightening experience Toni Iommi had after being gifted a very old latin tomb of black magic. Apparently they consulted a "white wizard"about it and were told to wear crosses.
with all of singers (Ozzy Osbourne, Ronnie James Dio, Tony Martin and so on). Approximately 224
Locked himself into a room with alcohol and cocaine until Sharon Osbourne (then Arden) persuaded him to emerge and start a solo career, which he did with immense success. The first record came out in 1980 and was called Blizzard of Ozz.
Allegedly, Tony Iommi found out that the flat V of the blues scale has an evil quality, and he wrote music around that quality. So he was basically inspired by the sound of chaos. But Tony was also very into blues and jazz music(as heard in songs like wicked world and planet caravan)
Mostly Toni Iommi writing and structuring the music, and Geezer wrote the lyrics. Ozzy and Bill contributed some but not much of it other than supporting the music and/or coming up with vocal melodies.
Black Sabbath is currently on hiatus. Their most recent lineup consisted of Tony Iommi, Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward. Concurrent to this was another version of Black Sabbath which called itself Heaven & Hell for legal reasons. They consisted of Iommi, Butler, Ronnie James Dio and Vinn…ie Appice. They were active until Dio's death in 2010, leaving only one version of Black Sabbath remaining. ( Full Answer )
If you are referring to the UK Singles Chart, then the answer is none. In the corresponding UK Albums Chart, their 1970 album Paranoid is their only, to date, chart topper. However, I do not have access to American chart statistics.
Original formation: Ozzy Osbourne (vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar), Geezer Butler (bass) and Bill Ward (drums). Later, Ozzy got replaced by Ronnie James Dio, who is now dead.
Making (some of) the most influential metal music of all time. They were considered "The Beatles of metal." War Pigs, and Iron Man are 2 of the best metal songs ever made in my opinion.
Ozzy Osbourne (1969-1977, 1978-1979, 1997-present) Ronnie James Dio (1979-1982, 1991-1992) Ian Gillan (Deep Purple) (1983-1984) Ron Keel (Keel, Steeler) (1984) Dave Donato (Geezer Butler Band) (1984) Jeff Fenholt (Geezer Butler Band) (1984-1985) Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple) (1985-1986) Ray Gillen (Sun… Red Sun) (1986-1987) Tony Martin (1987-1991, 1993-1996) Duh.

First of all, Black Sabbath is a musical group, not a song. Just as a Sabbath is a religious ceremony (such as a mass orservice), although the origin of the term has taken some divergenceover the years from its origin meaning, a "black" Sabbath would beakin to an "evil" Sabbath or ceremony. Hence, …witchcraft, etc. The idea is obviously some form of Demonic Devil Worship. This goesa step beyond mere morbid songs like Paint it Black, and WhiteRoom, which seem to involve funerals. The original members of Black Sabbath are not demonic devilworshippers, as they have been stereotyped due to their interest inthemes from the occult. They have been photographed quite famouslywearing rosaries or crosses around their necks on numerousoccasions. The title track for Black Sabbath, "I Grimlok", can be interpretedas having a figure or demon's shadow looming over you like the GrimReaper/angel of death. It is more of a presence or the moldy scentof old death; the finger pointing of the Grim Reaper coming to takeyour soul to the other side. ( Full Answer )
They have not yet announced the bands that are touring with them, but they have announced some of the dates on their website.
Black Sabbath's genre of rock was Heavy Metal. They were one of the original bands that started the genre of Classic Heavy Metal.
Yes, the original line up (Ozzy,Tony,Bill,Geezer) have reunited on 11/11/11 and are planning to record a new CD and then tour.
Ozzy wasn't really the one to "start" it. Tony and Bill were the ones who started it but they were looking for a singer and they got Ozzy to be the singer. They started the band because they didn't have jobs and were looking for a quick and easy way to get money.
Ozzy : 63 years old Geezer: 62 years old Bill : 63 years old Tony : 64 years old But they still rock!
They were discovered in 1969 by Phillips Records and released their first single via a subsidary of Phillips; Fortuna Records.
Black is a metaphor to define Dark, Sin, etc. Sabbath means Worship. So the polarity of its meaning is "Worship Sin", "Worship Darkness". and so on. Worship Satan/Lucifer, in the eyes of Christianity, who views Satan/Lucifer as a Dark, Sinful Deity. Where as Christians view Jesus a Deity of… Light and Righteous The meaning doesn't necessarily reflect on anti-Christians, It could be used with any Worship ideology to oppose its fundamental values.

There's a lot of speculation about this. The band themselves tend to indirectly cite a 1963 horror film of that name by Boris Karloff. Others have speculated that the US Acid Rock band Coven, and their 1969 album, Witchcraft Destroys Minds and Reaps Souls is where it was pulled from, citing the fi…rst track of that album (which was titled "Black Sabbath") and that Coven had a bassist who had taken on the name of Oz Osbourne (at the time of the release of the Coven album, Ozzy Osbourne was playing bass for a band called Magic Lanterns as John Osbourne). While the second makes for a more fantastic story, personally, I find the first one more likely. ( Full Answer )
Absolutely not ! It's simply the name of a rock group. They chosetheir name from a 1963 horror film Black Sabbath starring Boris Karloff - which was showing at a cinema across the roadfrom their rehearsal studio.
