This 1976 Black Sabbath concert is from the tour promoting the band’s Technical Ecstasy album.
This Warner record followed a series of masterful album releases and thus failed to reach its anticipated mark. This show is not the greatest musical performance of the classic Sabbath lineup, but it is a good testament to the overall power and impact Sabbath had on the international metal music scene. Opening with "Symptoms of the Universe" the band runs through a set of Sabbath classics and hits, along with material from what had been the newer albums at the time. They perform hard hitting versions of "War Pigs,” Electric Funeral,” "Snowblind," and the original ode to the dark side, "Black Sabbath,” from the band’s first album. Along with extensive solos from Iommi and Ward on guitar and drums, the band closes the show with the ominous, "Children Of The Grave.” -Original
