Black Sabbath "Paranoid" LP

$54.00

"Paranoid" was not only Black Sabbath's most popular record (it was a number one smash in the UK, and "Paranoid" and "Iron Man" both scraped the US charts despite virtually nonexistent radio play), it also stands as one of the greatest and most influential heavy metal albums of all time. "Paranoid" refined Black Sabbath's signature sound - crushingly loud, minor-key dirges loosely based on heavy blues-rock - and applied it to a newly consistent set of songs with utterly memorable riffs, most of which now rank as all-time metal classics. Where the extended, multi-sectioned songs on the debut sometimes felt like aimless jams, their counterparts on "Paranoid" have been given focus and direction, lending an epic drama to now-standards like "War Pigs" and "Iron Man" (which sports one of the most immediately identifiable riffs in metal history). Now available again on 180 gram vinyl with a gatefold cover.
