    POSTED 26 Apr 2013


    Shihad drummer Tom Larkin has recently spoken about opening up for the legendary Black Sabbath.

    It was dark, uncompromising and spoke of worlds and moods I had not yet conceived of.Ozzy crossing the stage and inciting the audience with the enthusiasm of a 4 year old on Christmas morning. Tony Iommi smoothly gunning his black SG and channelling a satanic Burt Reynolds. Geezer Butler furiously plucking and sweeping across his Bass and finally Bill Ward’s monolithic war drums.

    This was not just angry like the Pistols or tough like ‘Dacca, it was the musical equivalent of the colour black and I fucking.loved it.

    Fast forward twenty-eight years and I have found myself sharing the stage, accommodation, food and toilets with those very same characters and will continue to do so for the next 2 weeks.“
