Black Sabbath Release New Video for “End Of The Beginning”
Black Sabbath just released their latest and greatest album, 13, on Tuesday and today, we get the complete video for “End of the Beginning.” The song was features on the season finale of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation last month and more than likely will be the bands next single. The episode followed the CSI team as they investigated a series of ritual murders that ended up leading them to a Black Sabbath Concert.
Bassist Geezer Butler said that the song was inspired by the recent holograms of late artist such as Tupac Shakur, which are being used in live shows. “The lyrics are about being cloned, ’cause that’s what people are doing now more and more, making these holograms and sending them out on tour for eternity. That’s what it’s about. Now they’re doing it with comedians in England, like old, dead comedians.”
The new album, 13, is the first album in 35 years to feature Butler , Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi. The album which came out Tuesday is expected to sell between 120,000 and 130,000 copies in the U.S. according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. That number is based on one day sales and could mean that Black Sabbath will have their first number one album in the U.S. and it may even end up being their first number one album in their native England since 1970′s Paranoid.
