Black Sabbath – The Artist

Black Sabbath were an English heavy rock band, formed in Birmingham in 1968, by guitarist and main songwriter Tony Iommi, bassist and main lyricist Geezer Butler, drummer Bill Ward, and singer Ozzy Osbourne. Black Sabbath are often cited as pioneers of heavy metal music. The band helped define the genre with releases such as Black Sabbath (1970), Paranoid (1970), and Master of Reality (1971). The band had multiple line-up changes, with Iommi being the only constant member throughout its history.

Never Say Die – The Song

Never Say Die  is a single by English heavy metal band Black Sabbath written by the band. It was the lead single from their eighth studio album, released in 1978. It was the last studio album with the band’s original lineup and also the last studio album to feature original vocalist Ozzy Osbourne until his return to the band in 2012.

The Reversed Pentagram – The Shape

Pentagrams were used symbolically in ancient Greece and Babylonia, and are used today as a symbol of faith by many Wiccans, akin to the use of the cross by Christians and the Star of David by the Jews. The pentagram has magical associations. Many people who practice Neopagan faiths wear jewellery incorporating the symbol. Christians once commonly used the pentagram to represent the five wounds of Jesus. The pentagram has associations with Freemasonry and is also used as a symbol by other belief systems.

Black Sabbath, the rock band and black sabbath fans often display the reversed pentagram, with two points projecting upwards, is a symbol of evil and attracts sinister forces because it overturns the proper order of things and demonstrates the triumph of matter over spirit. It is the goat of lust attacking the heavens with its horns, a sign execrated by initiates. The two up facing points representing the horns and the downward point the devils beard.
