The biggest heavy metal band of all time and one of the most influential in the music history, Black Sabbath unfortunately came to a real “End” this year. Now, they are releasing a special in video the special last concert in the band’s hometown at Birmingham’s Genting Arena on February 4, 2017.
With a set list that includes “Iron Man”, “Paranoid”, “War Pigs” and many more, the high production values, visual effects, and pyrotechnics wowed fans, as the band delivered the most emotionally charged show in their history.
And they just released as teaser for the concert, the classic song from the first album “N.I.B”.
The song first appeared as the fourth track on the band’s 1970 debut album, Black Sabbath. The lyrics are in the first person from the point of view of Lucifer. Lyricist Geezer Butler has said that “the song was about the devil falling in love and totally changing, becoming a good person.”
“N.I.B.” begins with a bass solo by Geezer Butler, titled “Bassically” on some US releases. It involves the use of the wah-wah pedal and was recorded in one take, as the amp’s volume control is audibly turned up before the intro of “N.I.B.” begins.
The song’s main riff (as well Osbourne’s vocal delivery) have been noted for their Cream-influenced sound — the song has even been referred to as “the raucous defiling of Cream”.
