Eating the Cannibals

Album: The Devil You Know (2009)

  • Lyrics
  • Heaven & Hell are basically Black Sabbath fronted by Ronnie James Dio rather than Ozzy Osbourne. As far as their fans are concerned, The Devil You Know represented the first new Sabbath album since 1995's Forbidden.
  • Dio explained this song to Rolling Stone: "That one is about the government. It's a way of saying politicians are screwing us, so we're going to eat them."

  • Matt from Houston, TxI would hardly say heaven and hell are just black sabbath with dio. Obviously the dude who writes these "songfacts" for bands he doesn't know about has nothing more than time to kill
