Legal issues? The monicker "Black Sabbath" is a total property of Tony Iommi (registered in the year 1986, if i remind well). The only pending legal issue is the one claimed recently by Ozzy for obtaining money from the name of the band, but he can't win. The decision to use the new name "Heaven & Hell" was for making fans understand the real nature of the reunion (underlining the presence of Ronnie) and the consequent choice of playing only the songs of the Dio Years
It wasn't released as a Sabbath album because of legal issues. But who really cares? They are officially named "Heaven & Hell". This means that they are playing stuff from "Heaven and Hell", "Mob Rules", "Dehumanizer", "The Dio Years" and "The Devil You Known". It's Sabbath with Dio with the name of the album that made this line-up famous. They are a great band to see live, I enjoyed it very much!!! Dio, Iommi and Geezer kick ass!!!
Although the line up may be one of sabbaths this album has not been released as a sabbath album is the point i'm making and you look at them tags and the bands i'd say they work well together i am not a troll lol
this new album is full of fucking WIN - tonys riffs are great times as always and Dio smashes other singers to death with his vocals - he is old as hell and still sounds perfect - simply amazing - him halford and dickinson are the three masters of vocals "what about ozzy!?!?" he does not even rank in the top 50 imo - Dio Sabbath is so much better i think. Great album
