Album Review: Live At Union Chapel - Lissie Little do artists manage to pull off live albums when removing the protection of the production that goes into making a record.

While the album is typically Black Sabbath, they have even strategically placed a thunderstorm and church bells, it is also current and relevant to today’s Hard Rock Genre. Black Sabbath have produced an album for their fans but also an album that will surely spawn a new Sabbath generation.
