Emerald Sabbath release new music video for Black Sabbath’s ‘She’s Gone’

The ‘Ninth Star’ album by Emerald Sabbath is an ambitious epic rock & classical music tribute to BLACK SABBATH. Founded and produced by Michael Suilleabhain, an Irish Nuclear Construction Safety Inspector, ‘Ninth Star’ features 10 former members of Black Sabbath, The English Chamber Choir and much more.

The first song to be released from the album is ‘She’s Gone’, which originally featured on Sabbath’s 1976 album ‘Technical Ecstasy‘. The new recording features Dave Walker, who replaced Ozzy Osbourne briefly in 1977/1978. He also fronted Idle Race, Savoy Brown, and Fleetwood Mac. ‘She’s Gone’ features former Black Sabbath / Whitesnake member Neil Murray on bass guitar.

WELCOME ALL BLACK SABBATH AND ROCK FANS WORLDWIDE

“This is a quick note to all of those fans. My name is Michael Suilleabhain. I am from Castletownbere in West Cork, Ireland and I have been a Black Sabbath fan since 1983 when I heard them for first time. Like a lot of fans it was Black Sabbath’s debut album I heard first, and as they say, the rest is history. Over the years, I have since seen Black Sabbath a total of 82 times with every line-up [except with Ray Gillen].

Emerald SabbathI also have a great passion for classical music, and in May 2015 I decided to mix both of them. Adam Wakeman was the first to contribute to the project, with keyboards on ‘Changes’, and then it snowballed into this final product. I decided to re-record Black Sabbath tracks and instrumentals with as many as ex-members of Black Sabbath as possible. A lot of the artists also played on the originals (such as Vinny Appice, who joined Sabbath on drums for the Heaven And Hell tour, and The English Chamber Choir on Supertzar). I then brought in a string quartet along with various classical players.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would be able to do this, but my persistence paid off. I would like to thank all the ex-Black Sabbath guys for helping me with this, as well as the former Black Sabbath graphic designers, string arrangers, and producers. I hope that everyone will enjoy this album.”

The ‘Ninth Star’ album is dedicated to Black Sabbath and their Fans Worldwide.

Testimonials:

“Emerald Sabbath has been Michael Suilleabhain’s labor of love for years. I’m honored to be part of it.” – Bobby Rondinelli

“In March of 1984, Tony Iommi gave me a list of songs to learn for Black Sabbath. All three of my Emerald Sabbath tracks – ‘Hole In The Sky,’ ‘Trashed’ and ‘Die Young’ – were on there, and now thanks to Michael Suilleabhain I had the opportunity to sing those with some of my friends and heroes. The challenge of cutting an Ozzy song, a Dio song, and a Gillian song was matched only by my pride in the results, I’m really proud to be a part of this project.” – Ron Keel
