Into the Void: From Birth to Black Sabbath―And Beyond

The music of Black Sabbath changed and shaped an entire generation, taking heavy metal to new heights and spreading its sound around the world. Now, in the pages of Into the Void, you can read the real-life story and get a glimpse behind the scenes to see exactly how it happened.

This memoir, written by bassist and primary lyricist Geezer Butler himself, walks you through the band’s history—from its earliest days as a blue quartet to their touring days throughout the clubs of London to their years of fame and greatness.

It’s a refreshingly honest look into the life of a great man who might not have become the legend he is today were it not for crucial moments and choices made.

It shows a “human” side of heavy metal that is rarely seen, and strips away the brilliant riffs, the wild hair, and the glamor to give you surprising insight into the lives of “the Beatles of heavy metal”.
