Black Sabbath Vinyl Box Set Announced

The limited-edition package compiles the band's first eight LPs, plus an assortment of rarities and Sabbath ephemera.

Black Sabbath have announced a new box set, The Ten Year War. Arriving September 29 through BMG, the limited-edition release collects remastered editions of the band's first eight LPs — which all featured Ozzy Osbourne on vocals — pressed on heavyweight, splatter-colored wax: Black Sabbath, Paranoid, Master Of Reality, Vol. 4, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Sabotage, Technical Ecstasy and Never Say Die. It follows 2014's remasters CD box set Black Sabbath: The Complete Studio Albums 1970-1978, which contains the same albums.

The treasure trove of LPs and rarities comes housed in an individually numbered black box featuring exclusive artwork from famed artist Shepard Fairey. Here's a run-down of the collectibles: Two rare 7-inches containing the Japanese edition of "Evil Woman (Don't Play Your Games With Me)" and "Black Sabbath," and the Chilean versions of "Paranoid" and "The Wizard," respectively; a crucifix-shaped USB stick (which can also be worn as a necklace) loaded up with high-quality digital versions of the aforementioned records; a hardcover book featuring professional and candid band photos, plus accolades from famous musicians; reproductions of Black Sabbath's hard-to-find "Ten Year War" brochure and Tenth Anniversary World Tour 1978 Program; a reprinted tour poster from Black Sabbath's 1972 concert at the Seattle Centre Arena.

You can pre-order the package here for the low, low price of £195 (roughly $247). Watch a trailer for The Ten Year War below.
