Black Sabbath’s limited edition vinyl boxset The Ten Year War, an impressive collection of the first eight albums from the iconic metal band, was named Best Creative Packaging at the eight edition of the AIM Awards, held on September 4 in London.
The Ten Year War marks the third consecutive success at the AIM Awards where a BMG catalog release has been recognized. Peter Stack, Executive Vice President Global Catalog Recordings, said “We’re incredibly proud to have delivered a timeless boxset that embodies the importance of Black Sabbath, and much like their music, leaves a lasting impression on those who own it.
Released in September 2017, The Ten Year War boxset includes a number of rarities as well as ‘The Ten Year War’ brochure, all housed within exclusive artwork created by renowned street artist, graphic designer and activist Shepard Fairey.
With a discography spanning over 40 years, Black Sabbath is easily one of the most influential heavy metal bands of all time. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have sold over 75 million records, including over 24 platinum albums in the UK alone and over 15 million albums in the US.
