It's difficult to make your thoughts fit only in a line and rhyme... but as the ancient Greeks would say ''who seeks indeed shall find''...
Event: -
Heavy metal gives birth to a romance of a different kind;
Allows young people to communicate in a fantastic world only with those they like.



No, it's not a paranoid; this is the end of Black Sabbath, the end of an era.

A historical and influential band of heavy music will put an end to their career in the place where they started from. The English rock band, formed in Birmingham in 1968, by guitarist and main songwriter Tony Iommi, bassist and main lyricist Geezer Butler, singer Ozzy Osbourne come back home for their final tour and will give their concerts in Manchester (on the 22nd of January in Manchester Arena), Leeds (on the 24th of January in the SSE Hydro), Glasgow (on the 26th of January in the First Direct Arena), London (on the 29th and the 31st of January in the O2 Arena) and of course in their hometown Birmingham (on the 2nd and 4th of February in the Genting Arena). The prices are between 60-100 pounds but heavy metal fans have already booked their tickets so many concerts are already sold out; for further details you can check venues and ticket prices via www.blacksabbath.com/events.html

Black Sabbath are often mentioned as pioneers of heavy metal music. The success of their first two albums - Black Sabbath and Paranoid - marked a paradigm shift in the world of rock. Their song ''Iron Man'' is considered as one of the best heavy metal songs. Not until Black Sabbath upended the music scene did the term "heavy metal" enter the popular vocabulary to describe the denser, more thunderous offshoot of rock over which they presided. With their riff-based songs, extreme volume, and dark, demonic subject matter, Black Sabbath embodied key aspects of the heavy-metal aesthetic. Yet in their own words, Black Sabbath saw themselves as a "heavy underground" band. That term denoted both the intensity of their music and the network of fans who found them long before critics and the music industry took notice.

In a sense, though they've sold more than 75 million albums worldwide, they still are a heavy underground band. Originally formed as a blues rock band, the group soon adopted the Black Sabbath moniker and began incorporating occult themes with horror-inspired lyrics and tuned-down guitars. Despite an association with these two themes, Black Sabbath also composed songs dealing with social instability, political corruption, the dangers of drug abuse and apocalyptic prophecies of the horrors of war. In their final tour apart from their classic hits: ''Black Sabbath'', ''Paranoid'', ''War Pigs'', ''Children of the Grave'' etc they will sing two of their latest songs ''God is dead?'' and ''Under the sun'' which were released in 2013.
