After giving them their first British Number One album in over 40 years, Black Sabbath’s new album “13” (Vertigo / Universal) hit Number One on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart. The album was engineered by client Dana Nielsen.

“I’m in shock!” Black Sabbath front man Ozzy Osbourne told the Official Charts Company. “The success of this album has blown me off my feet. We’ve never had a record climb the charts so fast.”

Black Sabbath were last at the top of the UK chart with their second album, “Paranoid”. It is also only the second time the band has debuted in the top 10 in its 40-plus year career, and this marks their first Billboard #1 Debut.
