Two weeks after the Woodstock Music Festival the band named Black Sabbath was performing for the first time under this name (Black Sabbath), playing songs categorized for the first time as a new genre called Heavy metal filled with loud guitars, heavy drumming and angry dystopian lyrics. Their working class-anger and frustration because of the post war were communicated through the vocal delivery and lyrics of Black Sabbath’s singer Ozzy Osbourne.
