One of the 'big three' for me together with Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

I feel like Black Sabbath has aged better than Led Zeppelin, the riffs and general sound is more timeless and will always sound really goddamn heavy, not just 'heavy for its time'.

Godfathers of Metal, Lords of Doom, the musical importance of Sabbath can not be overstated. Over the years, they were able to handle a number of changes in vocalist with a wide variety in styles and delivery, and still consistently produce top-shelf metal albums. All great musicians, guitarist Tony Iommi in particular is cited by almost every hard rock/metal guitarist since as a major influence, and Geezer Butler is one of the top 5 rock bassists of all time.

From zags7000 08/14/2015 08:15
Paranoid is great but their debut may be my personal favorite. Their first 6 albums are all classic and that is a string of greatness very few can say. It wasn't Sabbath after Ozzy left but RJD had his moments. Heaven & Hell is pretty great album that belongs alongside the earlier albums as a classic. It probably would be more highly regarded had he not been replacing Ozzie and instead gone under a new name (which they did later), something Zack Wylde alluding to.

Sabbath>Zeppelin. One of the most original bands of all time. Zeppelin is good, but not very original. Tony Iommi invented a whole new guitar style that changed rock music forever.

The Godfathers of Heavy Metal according to many people. I fully agree with them, they had a distinctive sound not many bands had when they first came around. If someone was to start listening and getting into to Heavy Metal for the first time and they don't know what band to pick, this is where they start first.

Love every song on their first two albums, have their 3rd not into it that much. Seen them live in 2013 and it was great, especially Tony Iommi playing the guitar! Top quality guitarist in his genre.
