13 marks the band's 19th studio album and their first new music in 18 years. In 2006, Black Sabbath was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Not so familiar with Black Sabbath? Well, you can click below and listen to the track “End of the Beginning,” which was recently featured on the finale of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and in the closing credits of the Seth Rogen/James Franco comedy This Is the End.

It is Ozzy Osbourne, after all.
