The song “God is Dead?” seems to resonate with music lovers. The album “13” is available in various formats; as a standard CD, DeLuxe, or Super Deluxe.

The heavy-metal band would tour the US starting in Houston, Texas on Thursday, July 25, 2013 at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, and would end in Los Angeles at the Los Angeles Sports Arena on Tuesday, September 3, 2013.

Black Sabbath popularized songs such as; “Iron Man”, “Selling My Soul”, “The Devil Cried”, “Hole in the Sky,” and “Paranoid.”

Rock Bands have amazing revivals nowadays that the rest of the 70s rock bands may want to follow suit. The American rock band, Journey, is still going strong too, even after more than 35 years in the music industry. Journey has popularized the songs “Open Arms,” “Faithfully” and the Most Downloaded Single in the 20th Century – “Don’t Stop Believin.’

Meanwhile, another famous band in the 70s and 80s, The Beatles, with its member, Paul McCartney, continues to perform up to this day, to the delight of Beatles’ fans.

With the latest success of Black Sabbath’s album, “13”, the heavy-metal band would surely perform for their avid fans for several years more.
