New Sabbath Album to Be Released This Spring

Black SabbathBillboard is reporting that Heaven and Hell (i.e. Black Sabbath with Dio) will release an album of brand new songs, The Devil You Know, on April 28th. Blabbermouth has a number of further details, including song titles, plus the news that a fair amount of it will sound like their last full album, 1992's Dehumanizer.

I admit that I've started to appreciate Dehumanizer as the years have gone on, but it's still very pale compared to Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules. It plods just a bit too much, and sadly, that feel is very present on their three latest songs (found on their The Dio Years collection). But I have faith that as long as there's at least a few references to rainbows, circles, chains, keys, darkness and light, or at least doorways, then we'll have something worth listening to.
