HEAVEN & HELL Single 'Bible Black' Now Available For Download

"Bible Black", the first single from HEAVEN & HELL's highly anticipated new album, "The Devil You Know", is now available for download from all digital retailers. The epic tale was one of the first songs written for the new album and finds the quartet of Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Vinny Appice in top form. "When you start off with a blockbuster like that, it makes the rest of the album so much easier because it gives you a benchmark to measure the other songs against," says Dio. "Bible Black" begins with Iommi on acoustic guitar behind Dio's plaintive wail before the rhythm shifts to a menacing stomp for the rest of this dark tale about a book of sinister scriptures. The song is also streaming below.

A limited edition seven-inch vinyl single of "Bible Black" will be available exclusively for this year's Record Store Day on April 18 for a suggested list price of $5.98. The single's B-side features a live version of "Neon Knights" recorded at the band's heralded Radio City Music Hall performance in 2007. The seven-inch is available only at participating independent music retailers. For a full list of participating stores, visit www.recordstoreday.com.

A track-by-track review of "The Devil You Know" is available at MetalHammer.co.uk.
