Black Sabbath: Classic Albums – Paranoid

The second album by Black Sabbath, released in 1970, has long attained classic status. Paranoid not only changed the face of rock music, but also defined the sound and style of heavy metal more than any other record in rock history. This film in the Classic Albums series reveals how Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward created their frighteningly dark, heavy and ear-shatteringly loud sound – telling the story behind the writing, recording and success of the album using exclusive interviews, musical demonstration, archive footage and a return to the multi-tracks with engineer Tom Allom.
