London, Jun 17: The band Black Sabbath has returned to the top of the UK charts with their new album, after almost half a century.
Released on Monday, the album, titled 13, broke the record for the longest gap between chart-topping releases by British artists, Sky News reported.
It was in 1970 that the band first topped The UK charts with their second album 'Paranoid'.
The 43-year-long wait beats the record set by Rod Stewart, who had to wait 34 years for number one success between Volume 1 of his Greatest Hits, which came out in 1979, and this year's album Time.
Ozzy osbourne said that Rod Stewart and the Black Sabbath band are similar and both share a uniqueness that other people haven't got.
The new Black Sabbath album, 13, united original band members Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler for the first time in 35 years. (ANI)
