Black Sabbath rebranded as Heaven & Hell when they got together to tour in 2006 with the lineup of Dio, Tony Iommi
, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward (who was replaced a year later with Vinny Appice). It was Iommi's idea: They weren't going to play any Ozzy Osbourne Sabbath material, so they changed the name to temper expectations.The Devil You Know
was the only album they released as Heaven & Hell, and "Bible Black" was one of the first songs written for the project. Dio explained that it established a tone for the rest of the LP. "When you start off with a blockbuster like that, it makes the rest of the album so much easier because it gives you a benchmark to measure the other songs against."
