Black Sabbath awarded double gold record for "13" in Toronto


Black Sabbath receive Double Gold Disc Award For “13” Album in Toronto, August 14 2013.

The reunited British heavy metal godfathers received the honor in Toronto for sales of their latest studio album "13," which moved more than 80,000 units in Canada.

The founding members of the band (less drummer Bill Ward) each received a framed plaque along with a Toronto Maple Leafs NHL jersey.

For all Iommi fans’ happiness, 2013 is definitely a year of Sabbath! Tony won Revolver’s Riff Lord Award in May and the guys added to their mantles two awards from Metal Hammer in June: in two categories – Best UK Band and Best Album respectively. Here what Reuters said about the event:

Veteran British rock band Black Sabbath was crowned the kings of heavy metal on Monday, 17 June 2013, winning the top accolades at the UK's top metal music awards, the Metal Hammer Golden Gods.

Black Sabbath won the award for Best Album for "13" which soared to No. 1 in the British charts on Sunday, giving the band its first number one album in nearly 43 years which is a record interval between chart-toppers.

The band also won the award for Best UK band.

"From honoring the lords of our world Black Sabbath as today's most cutting-edge act, there's simply no other event like it," said Alexander Milas, editor of Metal Hammer magazine that organizes the annual awards.

Now our guys will add a “13” Double Gold to their Gold and Platinum collections.

From all Iommi fans over the world – CONGRATULATIONS DEAR TONY!
