Riff of the Day – 08/03/2015

Black Sabbath – Lord Of This World (from the album Master of Reality 1971) My favorite song from my favorite Sabbath album, Lord of this World is a true blueprint for modern doom and stoner metal. Tony Iommi has written the best riffs for forty-five years, and the rest of these guys are pretty damn good too. I have been blessed to see both the Ozzy Osbourne and Ronnie James Dio incarnations of Black Sabbath. True legends. Crazy fact: Master of Reality was the only Sabbath album to crack the U.S. top ten until their album ’13’ did it forty-two years later.
