Black Sabbath Get 3D Haunted Maze At Universal Studios
Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler from Black Sabbath, will be immortalized in an all-original, terrifying 3D maze, "Black Sabbath: 13 3D" at Universal Studios Hollywood’s premier Halloween Horror Nights event, beginning September 20, 2013.
The new maze, based on the darkest lyrics from Black Sabbath's biggest hit songs and the only attraction at the horror event to incorporate 3D video, will also include scenes inspired by the legendary band's recently released album, 13.
"We were all really excited when Universal Studios Hollywood approached us about doing a 3D 'Halloween Horror Nights' maze based on our music,” said Black Sabbath’s Ozzy Osbourne. "I've seen the drawings of what it will look like when it's finished and it looks amazing. I can't wait to walk through it on opening night in September.”
Guests will come face to face with a heart-stopping Lucifer and his bride, blood-soaked dead bodies and bubbling pools of "radioactive water" while song's inspired by "Luke's Wall," "Iron Man," "Paranoid," "War Pigs," "Electric Funeral" and--of course--“Black Sabbath" violently penetrate the confines of the maze at high volume.
"Very few bands can claim to have defined a genre of music but Black Sabbaths’ remarkable influence in the evolution of Heavy Metal will go down in history," said John Murdy, Creative Director for Universal Studios Hollywood. "Tony Iommi's dark, iconic riffs, Ozzy Osbourne's haunting vocals and Geezer Butler's foreboding lyrics provide the perfect soundtrack for 'Halloween Horror Nights' and endless inspiration for our new haunted attraction 'Black Sabbath 13 3D'."
