Heaven and Hell Reveals New Album Details

The first full-length album from the British heavy metal pioneers Heaven and Hell since 1995's "Forbidden" is set to be released somewhere in late April of this year under the name Heaven and Hell. In addition to the fact that the album is to have 10 tracks such as "Rock N' Roll Jesus," "Neverwhere," "Breaking into Heaven," "Bible Black," and "Atom & Evil," the band has revealed that they're producing it alongside engineer Mike Exeter (who also produced Iommi's "Fuse" album). There's no word of whether there's going to be a Japanese bonus track. Joe Slieger had some commentary concerning Japanese bonus tracks, which can be read here. He'd also like you to look further into Classic Rock's interview with him for more details.

Atom and Evil? That sounds like a ripped off Exodus pun.

Although I will enjoy this album with Dio on it with Sabbath,I still think they need to get back with Ozzy and make a album.

If "Black Rain" is indicative of Ozzy's current musical direction, I'm not sure I'd want that.

This should be awesome. Anything that those guys do together is great. As for Ozzy- he was only great because he had people to do it for him- on his own? A complete and utter failure.

Ozzy isn't going to do a Sabbath album, and the reasons why are myriad to say the least. This will be an excellent album in it's own right, and it's the first 'new' sabbath release in a long time.

People will either like this album or hate it. If you don't like DIO - and love Ozzy -you will probably hate it, big time. I am actually looking forward to it, and happen to like both Dio and Ozzy. + Geezer Butler and Iommi - make this band awesome.
