After 35 years, three original members of BLACK SABBATH release a new disc on Tuesday called “13”. The first SABBATH record since 1978’s”Never Say Die!” to feature Ozzy, along with guitarist Tony Iommi and Butler, it’s their second attempt at new music together after a previous effort failed in 2001. Butler told The Pulse Of Radio why it worked this time. “When we tried it in 2001, we just went in, like, completely without any idea of what we were gonna do,” he said. “We got about six reasonable songs out of it, but we knew that we had to come up to, like, a certain standard, and we didn’t feel that it did so we didn’t carry on with it. This time we got together and Tony, like, accumulated all these hundreds of riffs, so we had a starting point this time. There was a certain point where we went, ‘Yeah, that’s it, we can do it.'”
