Tony Simerman, the CEO and creative director of KnuckleBonz said via statement, "It was so surreal putting Sabbath on our 'lighted stage' that we use here in the studio for the promo video shoot… It was like watching Don Kirshner's Rock Concert in 1975. We got chills."
Sabotage was Sabbath's sixth LP, and featured the classics "Am I Going Insane (Radio)" and "Symptom of the Universe" along with unforgettable deep cuts like "Hole in the Sky" and "Megalomania." The promotional spot on Rock Concert that Simerman referenced can be watched below. It's a fiery set that includes tracks from Sabotage along with classics such as "War Pigs," "Snowblind," and "Killing Yourself to Live."
