Black Sabbath Offer Behind the Scenes Look at ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ 2013
Fall is pretty much upon us, and with it, all those fun Halloween-themed events, attractions and more. The Halloween season and heavy metal pretty much go hand in bloody hand, and metal godfathers Black Sabbath have their own attraction at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios, which is annual themed programming that takes place each autumn season. This trailer takes you behind-the-screams, er, scenes of how the Sabbath attraction came to be.
In this clip, we learn how and why Sabbath’s music and lyrics inspired the attraction, officially dubbed ‘Black Sabbath 13 3D,’ and how specific material helped the horror specialists behind the attraction turn the band into the equivalent of a living horror movie. We even see a schematic of the maze and it’s pretty badass.
Guitarist Tony Iommi also talks about why the band chose to name its latest album ’13,’ since it’s largely considered an unlucky number and is so closely associated with the Halloween season. Ozzy Osbourne also offers his take on things like only he can.
But don’t take their word for it. If you are lucky enough to live in So Cal, don’t miss the opp to enjoy the Black Sabbath attraction. It’s in 3D, too! If you can’t make it out west, well, live vicariously through this clip.
The attraction opens on Sept. 20. Be there or be scared. Mwuhahahahahaha.
