The following is the discography of Black Sabbath, a British heavy metal band.

Contents

The band was formed in 1968 by Ozzy Osbourne (vocals), Tony Iommi (lead guitar), Terence "Geezer" Butler (bass guitar), and Bill Ward (drums). The band has since experienced multiple lineup changes. [1] Though the second most recent line-up of the band to work together were Ronnie James Dio, Vinny Appice, Iommi, and Butler, for three new songs for a compilation in 2007, the original line-up was still considered the "current" lineup at the time and had been since their reunion in 1997. The 2007 sessions were deemed a one-off which led to the Heaven and Hell side project, resulting in a new studio album in 2009 entitled The Devil You Know . In June 2013, a partial reformation of the original line-up released 13 , which was the first album to feature Osbourne on vocals since 1978's Never Say Die! After 49 years together, Black Sabbath announced their breakup in March 2017. [2] [3] [4] [5]
