Emerald Sabbath founder/producer, Michael Suilleabhain, talks about ‘Ninth Star’.

WELCOME ALL BLACK SABBATH AND ROCK FANS WORLDWIDE

“This is a quick note to all of those fans. 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].

I 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 mypersistence 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.” – Michael Suilleabhain (Emerald Sabbath founder/producer/singer)

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

Released via Plastic Head Distribution on the 15th of February 2019.
