Estranged BLACK Sabbath percussionist Bill Ward claims that he has not been ready to hear the band’s new album, “13″, as a result of the expertise would be “too painful.”
Ward was originally declared as a part of BLACK SABBATH’s reunion album and tour in late 2011, however bowed move into early 2012 over a contract dispute.
Although Ward ne’er such what his problems were, the opposite members of day of rest — most notably singer Ozzy Osbourne — later hinted that Ward wasn’t physically up to the task of performing arts live.
SABBATH has used Ozzy’s regular itinerant percussionist Tommy Clufetos since then for live work. RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE’s Brad Wilk ordered down the drum tracks on “13″, that came out Gregorian calendar month eleven.
Asked by Rock Cellar Magazine if he has listened to the new day of rest CD, Ward said: “The solely issue I’ve detected from ’13′ is… perhaps forty seconds of the primary song, and so I turned it off. i have not detected something off that album in any respect. And to be quite honest, i do not care to either. It’s too painful. If i need to tear my guts out, i am going to place it on.”
He continued: “I mean, I would like all of them the luck — well, not luck, they do not would like luck — however I would like all of them the most effective within the world. But for me, i am unable to hear it, it’s too near home, you know.
“Like I same, I listened to the primary forty seconds of ‘God Is Dead?’ and that i simply same, ‘I cannot hear this any longer.’”
Ward, however, acknowledged that the fans’ support has created it easier for him to induce through the complete ordeal.
“The fans are good,” he said. “I desire I’ve got a true shut contact with them.
“I’ve ne’er reached such a degree of very having such closeness with everyone.
“I’m attempting to understand this moment currently. Their reactions and their words. Even up till last night after I went looking, I MEt} a man United Nations agency was fully fantastic and he had fantastic things to mention to me.
“It’s happening all the time. i am obtaining letters from everywhere the planet, musicians, every kind of things and that they utterly support Pine Tree State. and i am forever grateful that they’ve reacted in an exceedingly very positive means. It’s simply been this immense lovable expertise. i am unable to say enough concerning it, really.
“I’m at a loss for words. [Long pause] It tears Pine Tree State up, you know. as i am reproof you currently, i am shortly aloof from a tear.
“I had to follow my heart below the foremost troublesome circumstances.”
It was reported that day of rest wished to bring a second percussionist on the road to share duties with Ward, that he allegedly balked at. Ward same in one interview that he “would ne’er, ever show up for a commitment that I couldn’t do physically.”
Ward same he would come back on one condition, that he “play all or nothing.” it has been speculated that day of rest wished Ward to play solely a part of its live shows as a result of he wasn’t in form to perform a complete concert.
Ozzy told the the big apple Daily News, “I do not assume [Ward] may have done the gig, to be honest. he is improbably overweight. A percussionist has got to be in form. he is already had 2 heart attacks. i do not need to be liable for his life.”
In a recent interview with the Phoenix New Times, guitar player Tony Iommi expressed concerning Bill’s absence from the day of rest reunion: “We were hoping Bill was aiming to eff.
“It was Bill United Nations agency force the plug, it wasn’t US. Bill selected his own he did not need to try and do this, as a result of he did not like things the means it absolutely was. however we have a tendency to still do not know specifically what that was, as a result of Bill will not specifically discuss with US concerning it. He got his lawyers to speak with our lawyers, and it went that means rather than reproof the band in person. It need to be a silly scenario.
“It would are nice to possess had Bill on the album, however it absolutely was obtaining too sophisticated. It had been once a year of these things, and that we simply had to induce on with it.”

Black metal took the lawless extremity of death metal and another a larger use of melody, making swelling surges of sound that sweep the auditor away with raw feeling so arrive in a very wild empty inherent worth. Songs designed from primitive parts find yourself telling advanced tales, embarking on a journey wherever the best human fears — meaninglessness, predation and violence — find yourself being salvation from the frustrating world of entropy-bound stagnation. Thematically black metal represents AN assault on the pillars of contemporaneity, specifically ism, consumerism and tolerance.

news from http://www.ultimate-guitar.com – emphasis from LOLMETAL editor
If you were a musician in Iraq, would you scream “Burn the Quran! Burn the Quran!” over and over?
That’s exactly what 28-year-old Anahita, frontwoman of Janaza and side-project Seeds Of Iblis does at every one of their gigs. It’s Iraq’s very first female-fronted metal band, and flips the genre’s history of railing against Christianity by targeting Islam instead.
As you might expect, Anahita isn’t her real name. She has to smear herself with black and white makeup to stay anonymous, and would only conduct her interview with the Atlantic over Facebook.
What would happen if her identity were revealed to the religious authorities?
“A simple answer. They would kill me, and kill all of my friends, by cutting off our heads.”
It’s only when you read that kind of sentence that you realize how tame and relatively insincere our western metal culture has become.
“What keeps the fire burning is that I live every day in the memories of my parents and friends, and every day the people try to threaten me,” she said. “That’s why I am full of hate.”
She lost her Muslim faith when she started to learn about the psychology of belief. “I was reading some scientific facts and how Islam doesn’t make sense at all with the current science, and they use the method of ‘brainwashing’ to convince people about Islam,” she said.
She’s not alone; many metal bands have emerged from the devastation of the Iraq War, and in turn a subculture of fans who also risk being attacked. In March we reported on Iraqi teenagers wearing alternative clothes and “emo” haircuts who were beaten with stones and bricks, with local clerics claiming they were “a plague on Muslim society”.
But the metal bands continue to broadcast their message in underground clubs, and have banded together as a self-branded “Anti-Islamic League”.
“The goals of Janaza and Seeds Of Iblis are to show the world that Islam is dangerous,” she adds, “and even the people who live in the Middle East get hurt by this religion and seek for freedom of speech, just like the other people from all over the world.”
Don’t judge their metal on its musical traits – judge it on their passion and dedication to the genre in the face of death. It could be greater than any you’ve ever heard.
