Heavy metal legends release a limited edition vinyl box set on 27 October via BMG.
‘The Ten Year War’ brings together their eight Ozzy-fronted albums, plus many other rarities, all housed within exclusive artwork created by renowned street artist, graphic designer and activist Shepard Fairey.
‘The Ten Year War’ tag comes from a brochure that made a playful dig at journalists with the witty tagline “more good press than most – more bad press than any.” The brochure is reproduced in full for the box set and is one of the many exclusive items that accompany 8 remastered vinyl LPs and pressed on 180 gram splatter-coloured vinyl, each LP with unique and individual colouring.
MASTER OF REALITY (including original fold-out colour poster)
SABBATH BLOODY SABBATH
NEVER SAY DIE!
2 x rare 7″ singles are reproduced in their original sleeves: the Japanese version of Evil Woman (Don’t Play Your Games With Me)/Black Sabbath and the Chilean version of Paranoid/The Wizard (only 100 copies of the original radio promo were pressed).
A crucifix shaped Black Sabbath USB stick, exclusive to this box set, can be worn round the neck and contains MQA high definition audio of the first eight Black Sabbath albums.
The set also includes a hardback book, featuring accolades from the cream of rock royalty, coupled with official and candid iconic photography of the band during their 1970s tours, recording sessions and photo-shoots. A repro Tenth Anniversary World Tour 1978 Official Programme is included with a reprinted tour poster from the 1972 Seattle Centre Arena show. Each box set is individually numbered.
