Brand New Hour Of The Riff hits hard right here!!! And by hard hitting, here’s what we can tell you about today’s show. Jonny is bringing the FIRST LISTEN of Zakk Sabbath’s cover of “Evil Woman” taken from their re-recording of Black Sabbath for the 50th anniversary. He’s also got loads of new music from Stonus, Lowrider, Elephant Tree, Disastroid and Pale Mare.
Here’s a bit more about today’s premiere, from Blasko… the band has re-recorded the first Black Sabbath album in it’s entirety for a limited edition release via Magnetic Eye Records. This is a stand alone single of Evil Woman that was the first Black Sabbath single released in the UK. It will be released on 12 inch vinyl soon but Hour of the Riff was given the exclusive first spin.
Amazing oldies and wonderful noise from today. Also, a new track twenty years in the making!
