Heaven & Hell is the first Black Sabbath record to include Ronnie James Dio as lead vocalist, at the time famous from being the vocalist for Rainbow.

Color: Green

Black Sabbath and Ronnie James Dio prove themselves as a band that they could create some great heavy metal without Ozzy Osbourne whilst separating themselves from their old sound to create this new more epic and energetic release which I would say could definitely rival some of their 70's releases.

Suena mas a La Banda de Ronnie James Dio que a Black Sabbath, pero no se puede negar la inyeccion de sangre nueva que supuso su entrada en la banda. Tiene sabor a heavy metal clasico.
