Sabotage, originally released on Warner Bros. Records in the US and Vertigo Records in the UK, was Black Sabbath's sixth studio outing. Singer Ozzy Osbourne has often complained in interviews over the years that this album marked the beginning of what he described as guitarist Tony Iommi's studio production obsession. It took vastly longer than the previous albums each took to record or produce, making for the most costly Sabbath album to that point (the first album only took a few hundred pounds and a couple of days). Like the previous album, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, fan response was mixed.[citation needed] Warner Bros. ...

In regard to sound, the album continues a trend that began with the previous album. With Sabotage, Iommi brought in more use of keyboards and "orchestral"-sounding songwriting and oddities (for Sabbath) like choral arrangements ("Supertzar").


The song "Symptom of the Universe" is often considered by some to be the first ever thrash metal riff. Sabbath fans are split down the middle as to the album's importance in the band's catalog, but Sabotage has gained something of a cult following among general hard rock/heavy metal fans. Thrash metal is a subgenre of heavy metal music, one of the extreme metal subgenres that is characterised by its signature high speed and aggression. ...


On some of the first vinyl/cassette releases (and all of the remastered versions of the album) there is a short, 23 second hidden track titled "Blow on a Jug" at the end of "The Writ". Recorded at very low volume, it contains Ozzy and Bill Ward goofing around in the studio.

Song information

"Hole in the Sky"

"Hole in the Sky" might refer to the feeling of being high (a state of drug usage where a person has less control of his actions, and is lost in his mind for a specified time period, rather like being drunk); then again, it could also refer to satanic references, assuming the song was written by Geezer Butler. A psychoactive drug or psychotropic substance is a chemical substance that acts primarily upon the central nervous system where it alters brain function, resulting in temporary changes in perception, mood, consciousness and behavior. ... Drunkenness, in its most common usage, is the state of being intoxicated with alcohol (i. ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


"Am I Going Insane (Radio)"

The title of the song caused some confusion due to the "(Radio)" part leading people to believe the song was a radio cut or radio version. However this is the only version of the song: 'radio-rental' is Cockney rhyming slang for 'mental' [1]. Cockney rhyming slang (sometimes initialized as CRS) is a form of English slang which originated in the East End of London. ...


The song itself is very different from the typical Ozzy Osbourne-era Black Sabbath song. It features no heavy guitar riff; instead, a keyboard riff is prominent. The song concludes with an "insane laugh" which carries into "The Writ."
