Black Sabbath on CSI
Black Sabbath on CSI

Black Sabbath‘s full performance of the song “End Of The Beginning,” portions of which were seen last month on the season finale of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, has now been posted online. The band made a rare television appearance on the May 15th episode of the CBS-TV series, which followed the CSI team as they investigated a series of ritual murders that eventually led them to attend a Sabbath concert.

The song, from the band’s new album 13, is likely to be its next single. Bassist Geezer Butler told us that the track was inspired by reading news stories about how holograms of late artists like rapper Tupac Shakur are being used for live concerts: [“The lyrics are about being cloned, ’cause that’s what people are doing now more and more, making these holograms and sending them out on tour for eternity. That’s what it’s about. Now they’re doing it with comedians in England, like old, dead comedians.”

  • 13 is the first album in 35 years to feature Butler, singer Ozzy Osbourne and guitarist Tony Iommi all playing together.
  • The set, which came out on Tuesday (June 11th), is likely to sell between 120,000 and 130,000 copies in the U.S. in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double.
  • The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores and could hand Sabbath its first Number One album ever in the U.S.
  • The disc may also end up being the band’s first Number One record in its native England since Paranoid topped the chart in 1970.
