When the trailer was released over summer, it featured Sabbath’s anti-war song, ‘War Pigs’, which was released on the band’s second studio album ‘Paranoid’ in 1970.
Jim Simpson, the band’s original manager, told Westside BID that using the song in the trailer was “absolutely perfect”.
“In the trailer for a film set more than 200 years ago, you can hear a crystal-clear Ozzy [Osbourne] singing Geezer’s [Butler] lyrics in the anti-war song ‘War Pigs’: ‘Generals gathered in their masses, just like witches at black masses…‘ and it sounds absolutely perfect,” he said.
“Like Beethoven, Mozart and all of the other great composers, you can imagine Sabbath’s made-in-Birmingham music will still be played and appreciated in 200 or more years’ in the future, too.”
In other news, director Scott recently hit out at critics of the film’s historical accuracy.
