In a retrospective review, AllMusic 's Steve Huey cited Paranoid as "one of the greatest and most influential heavy metal albums of all time", which "defined the sound and style of heavy metal more than any other record in rock history".
However, he did note that the band does take musical heaviness to "undreamt-of extremes". The album is currently ranked at No. Paranoid 's chart success allowed the band to tour the US for the first time in Octoberwhich spawned the release of the album's second single " Iron Man ". Although it failed to reach the top 40, "Iron Man" remains one of Black Sabbath's most popular songs, as well as the band's highest charting US single. It's hypnotic and terrifying and has a seductive groove.
The song explodes into a twisted landscape made physical through sound. It's the sound of a vengeful God. It's the sound of a beast crushing everything in its path. In the early s, an American nurse committed suicide and the Paranoid album was found on her turntable. That was the way it felt, so that was the way we played. But it got out of hand. With Paranoid in England, for instance. There was a girl found dead — a nurse she was: dead in her room with our album on the turntable going round.
And it was Hand Of Doom / Rat Salad - Black Sabbath - Paris 1970 (DVDr) to court saying that it was because of the album that she was depressed and killed herself, which was totally ridiculous, I think. In a interview with The New Music Butler claimed, "If the moral majority don't understand it they'll try to put it down, or get other people to read all sorts of things into it The moral majority sort of people picked up on the Satanic part of it.
I mean, most of it was about stopping wars and that side of it, and some science fiction stuff. There wasn't that much Satanic stuff, and what there was it wasn't exactly for the devil or anything like that; it was just around at the time and we just brought it to people's attention. The whole song is against drugs. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Redirected from Rat Salad. Black Sabbath. Regent Sound, London IslandLondon. The Great Rock Discography.

As well as the stage does too! In recent years it came to be known that copies come from someone's personal beta tapes recorded back then. And from these orginial tapes comes a new remastered version with even better quality.
Funny note to add is after new copies came from the tapes the beta player destroyed itself!

This is potentially huge for Montreux alone. That one has been a constant source of frustration for collectors because despite being a soundboard, no version has ever surfaced that isn't lossy.
