Stream and/or Purchase The Black Sabbath Covers 7″
Today Jason Molina‘s The Black Sabbath Covers 7″ is out in the world. Recorded in the Midwest in the late ’90s, the intimate takes on these songs serve as bittersweet artifacts of the late singer-songwriter, as well as an ode to Molina’s longtime love of metal. Here, he takes Black Sabbath’s songs and makes them singularly Molina, his own personal and artistic mythology looming large over visceral, brooding tracks.

Molina extracts Ozzy Osbourne‘s cooed vocals and transforms it into his signature high and lonesome sound, an eternal campfire howler on “Solitude,” from 1971’s Master of Reality. On “Snowblind,” taken from 1972’s Vol. 4, the influence of Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi on Molina’s catalogue of work suddenly becomes obvious. Side B of the 7″ features an etching of a black ram by longtime Molina album artwork artist, William Schaff.

While the bundle version has sold out via the Secretly Store, it’s available for listening on streaming services today, or at your local record store. Enjoy this latest addition to Molina’s musical legacy.
