    The Devils Chord is what makes, what made the song black sabbath the shit!

    Here is some more history on it below...

    The tritone or 'Devil's Chord' – a musical interval, such as the augmented fourth, spanning three whole tones – has a long musical history of links to diabolism, from the Church's wholesale banning of it in the Middle Ages, through the Romantic era, blues and jazz, to modern film music and death metal.

    Before the proscription of the interval it was, according to Professor John Deathridge, King Edward Professor of Music at King’s College London, often used to represent the presence of evil: "In mediæval theology, you have to have some way of presenting the devil. Or if someone in the Roman Catholic Church wanted to portray the crucifixion, it is sometimes used there." Later, though, it came to be seen as a dissonance, and was outlawed, says Deathridge, on technical grounds in which, perhaps, a theological ban can also be read.

    Romantic portrayals of evil – particularly in the works of Wagner – brought the tritone's tension-inducing power to the musical fore, and modern musicians – from film composer Bernard Hermann to seminal 'metal' act Black Sabbath – have drawn on these associations to add a spooky atmosphere to their own work. Sabbath's guitarist Tony Iommi denies making conscious use of the 'Devil’s Interval', claiming that he was just looking for "something that sounded right… something that sounded really evil and very doomy."

    The genre's love affair with the tritone is examined in a new film about the history of heavy metal, A Headbanger’s Journey........

    Judas always... In my dark moments driving I like Glenn Tipton and Dio more that the rest, don't ask me why and in normal moments I don't listen Black Sabbath (Ozzy) and Pink Floyd, they make me nervous
  • yes judas has a great vibe to drive too..and ozzy's black sabbath makes you nervous,maybe cause its a little darker.

  • I have another question about a Sabbath song. It's really Oz who sings on the song Solitude ? Because I really don't recognize his voice there
