Reunion is a live album by heavy metal band Black Sabbath. It features the original line-up of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward: the four musicians' first recording together since the firing of Osbourne in 1979. Osbourne, Iommi, Butler and Ward reunited for Live Aid in 1985 and for the climax of Ozzy's No More Tours Tour in 1992, but neither had resulted in an album or tour.
Reunion (Black Sabbath album). Black Sabbath received their first Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance, for the live recording of "Iron Man" from this album in 2000. They went on to win the same award 13 years later, with the song "God Is Dead?".

Black Sabbath Lyrics. Reunion Lyrics (1998). Lyrics to the Full Album on one page). Behind The Wall Of Sleep. Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. You've seen right through distorted eyes You know you have to learn The execution of your mind You really have to turn The race is run, the book is read The end begins to show The truth is out, the lies are old But you don't want to know. Nobody will ever let you know When you ask the reason why They just tell you that you're on your own Fill your head all full of lies.
Album · 1998 · 18 Songs. While the excitement over classic-rock reunion shows is usually based simply on the thrill of seeing the original members together onstage, this reconstituted Sabbath lineup was highly formidable. Even though the four members were pushing 50, there's a sense throughout Reunion that the music they summoned is a living organism. Musicians may age, but the songs don't. Never have the canonical riffs of Into the Void, Sweat Leaf, and War Pigs felt so scorching.

Though it was conceived as a mere cash-in for the long-awaited return of the original Black Sabbath, 1998's Reunion is as close to an official live album as the band has had in their historic 30-year career.
