BLACK SABBATH

The third full-length studio album by legendary British Heavy Metal/Stoner band.
It is regarded by some critics as the foundation of Doom Metal, Stoner Rock, and Sludge Metal.
The shortest album of Black Sabbath's glory years, "Master Of Reality" is also their most sonically influential work. Here Tony Iommi began to experiment with tuning his guitar down three half-steps to C#, producing a sound that was darker, deeper, and Sludgier than anything they'd yet committed to record. This trick was still being copied 25 years later by every Metal band looking to push the limits of heaviness, from trendy Nu-Metallers to Swedish Deathsters. Much more than that, "Master Of Reality" essentially created multiple Metal subgenres all by itself, laying the sonic foundations for Doom, Stoner and Sludge Metal, all in the space of just over half an hour.
The album peaked at number five on the UK Albums Chart and number eight on the US Billboard 200, where it achieved Gold status on advance orders alone. Negatively received by critics on release, the album is now considered one of the greatest Heavy Metal albums of all time. It was certified double Platinum after having sold over two million copies in US.
In 1994, "Master Of Reality" was ranked number 28 in Colin Larkin's Top 50 Heavy Metal Albums. In 2001, Q included it in their list of the 50 Heaviest Albums of All Time. In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked the album number 298 in their list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, 300 in a 2012 revised list, and 234 in a 2020 revised list. The same magazine also ranked the album 34th on its "100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time".
