Geezer Butler was the first bass player I heard that made me want to play bass rather than guitar. It was the album that I still have on vinyl, Paranoid. Songs like “Iron Man” and “War Pigs” of course, but what really caught me was “Hand of Doom” and the simple power of those five notes played just so, lightly and then with much force. I love both the Ozzy and Dio forms of Sabbath, even the Ian Gillian version had some cool songs.
I am always curious thus when I hear about Black Sabbath cover bands, and it was no different when Seattle’s Supernauty came to my attention recently. I haven’t heard them, but I do of course know much of what they will play, and it’s damn near impossible to go wrong for an evening’s entertainment when the main thing is Sabbath riffs played loud.
