In 1983, heavy metal legends Black Sabbath released their new album “Born Again”. The album is somewhat controversial in the sense that its cover artwork has often been considered one of the ugliest album covers, and the end result did not please the band members either.

The album features Deep Purple’s Ian Gillan on vocals for the first and last time, and Bill Ward on drums for the last time. Geezer Butler played on the album for the last time in nine years, but can be heard again on the 1992 album “Dehumanizer”.

Now, the band’s guitarist Tony Iommi says on a recent SiriusXM radio show “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk” that he can’t wait to remix the album.

“We’re waiting to get these [master tapes] now. They discovered where they were — in some library in some record company somewhere. Obviously, I’d love to do that — I’d love to get that one sounding right. ‘Cause I think that was a really good album. And when we’d first done it in the studio, it sounded great. But when it came out on record, it was really muffly and not good. So I wanna try and do something with that”
