ORIGINAL BLACK SABBATH DRUMMER BILL WARD RELEASES HIS FIRST SOLO ALBUM IN 18 YEARS THROUGH iTUNES
Original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward has released his new solo album, Accountable Beasts, through iTunes.
The Bill Ward Band title was expected this year, but not so soon. The nine-track work is his first solo release in 18 years.
Ward recently said of Accountable Beasts, “It’s much tougher. It kicks harder. We got pretty crazy on this one – it was like, ‘F–k everything.’ I wanted to go to a place I really know well, and that’s playing hard.”
Referring to the unexpected launch, he said last night, “We realize the release may have surprised some of you. We’ll adjust and respond to all inquiries. We hope you’ll enjoy it.”
Ward is also planning the launch of a second solo album entitled Beyond Aston, which has been under production for several years.
Accountable Beasts track listing:
1. Leaf Killers
2. Accountable Beasts
3. Katastrophic World
5. First Day Back
6. As It Is In Heaven
9. The Wall Of Death
18 years to record 9 songs? No wonder Bill got the boot from Sabbath.
2 years per song, is that slow?
Drummers are not frontmen… as plumbers are not architechts.
I beg to differ, as people who are fans of Phil Collins and Kelly Keagy, may disgaree with that statement. Sometimes, the drummer have the best voices, but one would never know that until they get the opportunity to actually sing a lead vocal.
I always knew Jeff Pilson had a good voice, but I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Mick Brown lead vocal on Tooth and Nail on Dokken’s One Live Night. I liked his raspy voice. If you’re interested in hearing Brown’s rendition, you can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qKEqYVknaQ
