originally a 60's blues band from England called "Earth," fronted by Ozzy Osbourne who left the band. black sabbath were the creators of heavy metal, they took rock music and added dark lyrics, and Tony Iommi's brilliant heavy disturbing sounding/blues laced guitarwork and created a new sound that people still love and still relate to today. One of the most influencal bands in heavy music.
Kids still rock out to Sabbath today!

true metal. if you hate them, and like korn, opeth, or any other fucking nu-metal band, you are not a metal head and should die a slow, painful death.
Black Sabbath, by Black Sabbath.

What is this that stands before me
Figure in black which points at me
Turn 'round quick and start to run
Find out I'm the chosen one
Oh, no

Big black shape with eyes of fire
Telling people their desire
Satan sitting there, he's smiling
Watches those flames get higher and higher
Oh, God--please help me
Oh, no--no

Child cries out for its mother
Mother screaming in the fire
Satan points at me again
Opens the door to push me in
Oh, no
Oh, God

Is it the end my friend
Satan's coming 'round the bend
People running 'cause they're scared
You people better go and beware
No, no
Please, God, no
