Black Sabbath - Master Of Reality (1971).

Master of Reality is the third studio album by English rock band Black Sabbath, released on 21 July 1971. It is widely regarded as the foundation of doom metal, stoner rock, and sludge metal. It was certified double platinum after having sold over 2 million copies. Master of Reality was Black Sabbath's first and only top 10 album in the US until 13, forty-two years later.

Master of Reality is the third studio album by English rock band Black Sabbath. Originally released in July 1971, it is widely regarded as the foundation of doom metal, stoner rock, and sludge metal. Master of Reality was Black Sabbath's first and only top 10 album in the US until 13 forty-two years later.

Master of Reality was Black Sabbath's third album in just over one year. Despite this relative lack of time off, Black Sabbath displays no signs of letting up. The album contains several of Black Sabbath's classic tracks, with songs such as Children of the Grave and Sweet Leaf being favourites among the band's celebrated catalogue. It's through these classic songs that Black Sabbath introduced yet another change in their music. Despite not radically switching up their formula, the newly down tuned guitars and bass guitars opened new possibilities for the band.

Oh, and Black Sabbath came up with Master Of Reality. Birmingham doomsters Black Sabbath started life as Earth in 1968, before changing their name a year later, inspired by an Italian horror movie of the same name. In 1970, they’d recorded and released their first two albums, Black Sabbath and Paranoid. In the process, not only had they become a commercial force, but effectively invented heavy metal as we know it. Black Sabbath were very different to anything around at the time, insists drummer Bill Ward. Our lyrics were especially unusual. Today, nearly 30 years on, the album not only stands in its own right as a great record, but one that has inspired succeeding generations of musicians. I know people feel that Sabbath invented heavy metal with our debut album – and that is true to some extent, Bill concludes, but I believe that it’s with Master Of Reality that we proved the potential and power of the music. It’s also a record when we weren’t afraid to show our vulnerable, sensitive side. Why Black Sabbath's Paranoid is the Quintessential Heavy Metal Album.
