Speak of the Devil is the definitive tribute to Black Sabbath - the most influential band and defining force in the development of heavy metal rock music. The Black Sabbath "sound" was born out of the blues-rock sound of late '60s acts by slowing the tempo, accentuating the bass, and emphasizing screaming guitar solos and howled vocals full of lyrics expressing mental anguish and macabre fantasies.
Speak of the Devil was formed in the summer of 2003 by four friends from the San Francisco Bay Area: Ray "Iommi" on guitar, Bill "Ward" on drums, Scotty "Osbourne" on vocals, and Elvin "Butler" on bass. With a wide selection of classic Black Sabbath and solo Ozzy Osbourne songs in the set list, featuring greatest hits and deeper album tracks, dead-on vocals and stage antics of Ozzy Osbourne, vintage instruments for the classic Black Sabbath tone, and the heaviest rhythm section this side of Birmingham, Speak of the Devil is unbelievable! Speak of the Devil plays great live concerts wherever true Black Sabbath and Ozzy fans need a dose of "Sweet Leaf"!
The current Speak of the Devil lineup includes vocalist "Scotty Osbourne" howling out the haunting vocals of Ozzy. Drummer "Bill Ward" lays down the classic beat that gets the crowd "Flying High Again". "Elvin Butler" on bass guitar pours the lifeblood into the heavy, dark groove. And "Ray Iommi" rips out the bludgeoning, catchy, doom-and-gloom riffs played with the crushing guitar tone and blistering lead hooks that makes Black Sabbath's sound so easily recognizable.
