They are the band that created metal music . . . and they have defined it for more than four decades. Black Sabbath's career spans eleven different line-ups and nineteen studio albums in addition to the twenty-eight solo albums of the original four members.

The band began in 1968 as a blues rock band on the cover circuit of Birmingham, England. Clawing their way up from the postwar bombed-out suburbs of Birmingham, the four members - guitarist and main songwriter Tony Iommi, bassist and main lyricist Geezer Butler, singer Ozzy Osbourne, and drummer Bill Ward - would define a new genre of music and make themselves world famous.

Joel McIver explores the complete history of Sabbath, from the precursor bands to the release of the holy trinity of heavy metal - "Black Sabbath" (the song) on Black Sabbath (the album) by Black Sabbath (the band) - to the present. With over 150 photos, a gatefold family tree tracing the development of the band, a complete discography, and a foreword by Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn, this is the must-have book for any Sabbath fan.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It's a beautiful book - plenty of excellent and never-before-seen pics...Nothing quite says Christmas like Black Sabbath, so this book should be a welcome present under the tree for that metal fan in the family." * TheDay.com *
"What makes this a great thorough read is that it talks about the entire history of the band (also in pictures). Sabbath and Ozzy solo, to the Dio albums, the album Ian Gillan sang on - Born Again and Glenn Hughes - Seventh Star which was supposed to be an Iommi solo album, to the terribly overlooked, underappreciated Tony Martin years, to their reunion with Bill Ward in the late '90s, and current farewell tour minus Ward." * Bravewords.com *

"The Complete History of Black Sabbath: What Evil Lurks may look like a coffee table book at first, with it's giant size and massive, incredible photos, but it is much more than that. This book is a beautifully written look at all facets of the bands past. Every album. Every lineup. Every high and every low. It feels almost voyeuristic looking in at such a detailed account of the bands history."
