Black Sabbath: Sabbra Cadabra!

Chris Charlesworth, Melody Maker, 23 February 1974

THE GRINDING riff sears through the eardrums, ripping the senses and dulling with monotony. It crashes through the PA system, hurtling itself towards the back of the auditorium, echoing forward again and carrying in its wake 10,000 or more young fans riding on the crest of the wave.

Total word count of piece: 1644
