Black Sabbath Unleash Video for ‘God Is Dead?’
Black Sabbath‘s triumphant new album ’13’ will finally see a release tomorrow (June 11), but the iconic metal innovators have just released something to help ease the wait. A new music video for the single ‘God Is Dead?’ has just been unleashed upon us all.
Anticipation for Black Sabbath’s newest album, which will serve as the band’s first full album in 35 years that features singer Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler, has reached a fever pitch. Ever since Black Sabbath (at that time with original drummer Bill Ward) announced on Nov. 11, 2011 (11-11-11) that a new album was coming, fans have patiently been waiting for new material while supporting Iommi and his untimely cancer battle. Thankfully, the master of the riff has been showing major signs of improvement since his early 2012 diagnosis, continuing to flesh out massive lines for ’13’ even during the hardest times of his recovery.
The new music video for ‘God is Dead?’ ponders life’s ultimate question while showcasing the greatest atrocities of our world, which lead many to seek their own answers concerning religion and faith. Despite the visions of war, death, crime, greed, ignorance, gluttony and hopelessness throughout the video, the most powerful scenes within the video are of the faithful turning their backs on religion as they throw their connections to God down onto the pavement.
Video footage of a vintage Black Sabbath performing live is also present in ‘God is Dead?’, shown through the scope of an all-seeing eye.
