I agree they did have a unique sound and writing style.  I listen to them, and a bunch of other stuff, while editing also.

Edit: Forgot to add I love Fig Newtons too. big_smile

They had a "driving" guitar sound that I've never heard anything like from ANY other band.  I've often wondered why no one tried to imitate them.  Their sound is instantaneously and unmistakenly recognizable!

Their signature sound comes from frequent use of tritones in the composition. It's what gives it such a sinister or devilish feel.

So that others may revel in the glorious murk:

Master of Reality (full album)

Arguably the album's masterpiece, stand-alone: "Into The Void" (with a somewhat annoying glitch at 5:46, though... forewarned!)

If you like Sabbath, check out Monster Magnet- either Superjudge or Dopes to Infinity. It's classic acid rock.

I've been a fan of Sabbath ever since I heard the song Paranoid. A friend gave me a copy of that album on tape and I blasted it in my car all the time.

I finally got to see the original lineup live at Ozzfest in 2001. By the time they came on stage I'd been awake for about 26 hours. It was totally worth it...
