HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY HEAVY METAL!
As has already been pointed out on any number of other websites, tomorrow, February 13, marks the 40th anniversary of the release Black Sabbath’s debut album. Since Sabbath are pretty much the originators of metal, this would kinda-sorta make tomorrow metal’s 40th birthday. Is metal sad that it’s not in its thirties anymore? Is there a mid-life crisis on the horizon? Will metal soon be seen driving around in a ridiculous sports car? Or do we need to wait another ten years for that? I guess we’ll find out soon enough. In the meantime, please join me in wish the music we love a very happy birthday.
