Butler's fascination with Dennis Wheatley novels gave the band their
Satanic/fetishistic image but their sound was a sparce heavy blues. By the early
seventies that had turned to doom-laden heavy metal.
Iommi's solos and Ozzy's screaming vocals were an obvious match for the Blackmore/
Gillan line up of Deep Purple but in 1978, Ozzy left. His replacement by Dio heralded
a more restrained melodic period but by 1983, the band had split up.
The reformation of the original line-up for Live Aid in 1985 saw a brief return to
form but over the following years they were to become more of a niche market band as
the next wave of metal bands passed them by.
