Metal hammer Magazine have put together a 172 page salute to the founding fathers of heavy metal Black Sabbath.

A question that always seems to come up is if Black Sabbath is the most influential metal band of all time? Let's say that you erased Black Sabbath from music, would bands like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Slayer, Venom and Alice In Chains even exist? Black Sabbath's influence on heavy metal is just unreal. Even to this day they continue to influence a whole new genre in the world of music.

Check out the video of Kerry King of Slayer talking about his favorite Black Sabbath track, and watch out Mr. King uses some naughty language.
