Yeah…this happened. Thanks internet!
For no reason other than its pure awesomeness, here are some pretty good clips of Rob Halford performing with Black Sabbath at the Pacific Amphitheater in Costa Mesa, California in November of 1992 opening for Ozzy Osbourne.
Ronnie James Dio was supposed to be fronting that night as it was in support of the Dehumanizer album, but it is believed that he was not willing to “open for Ozzy” so they got Halford to fill in for these shows (which would not be the only time Halford has done vocals for Sabbath in a live setting, but it was the best sounding from what I’ve heard).
Those of you who remember the days of “bootlegs” should have no problem with the sound quality, but those who were raised in the digital era may find the sound to be a bit undesirable. Regardless….this was one awesome night in Heavy Metal history.
‘Heaven & Hell’
‘Children Of The Grave’
Ex-Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman has released a brand new music video, the title track from his upcoming album ‘Inferno’ due out May 27th via Prosthetic Records.
Got a link to the brand new video from Ænimus, so thought I’d check it out before blindly posted. As it started off I was thinking to myself “oh, great…another boring ‘performance’ video” but THEN some really cool shit started happening. For an independent Metal band, I think this video is close to top-notch.
Their killer debut album Transcend Reality is currently available via Bandcamp at this location.
Check out their video for ‘The Awakening’ below:
