Log fire = rain

I think nib is one of my all time faves by Sabbath. I love all Sabbath though
One of the best songs,in metal history. The whole band was phoneminal
Geezer's tone on NIB is so amazing.
BB King once sat in with them at a festival show back in the 70s. Must've been a hell of a sound!
Groove heavy
My band covers N.I.B.
Wendell sharpes a dumbass
This counts as one track but HDOOL/ABITWP 2 doesn't?
Wall of sleep is lyin broken sun shines in u ever woken
warderict
The entire album was recorded in the span of a weekend. Incredible.
I seen this live and I cried
How can j.b.steal the song he steel it he wasn't born yet! Bozo!
They totally stole this from Justin bieber LOL! Amazing the difference in intelligence in the work by groups like Sabbath and kids like Bieber. This Sabbath album has endured well over the years.
They totally stole this from Justin bieber. B**ches #swagg
Not in butt
I love these mash up songs.
Visions cupped within a flower
Deadly petals with strange power
Faces shine a deadly smile
Look upon you at your trial

Chill and numbs from head to toe
Icy sun with frosty glow
Words that grow read to your sorrow?
Words that grow read no tomorrow?

Feel your spirit rise with the breeze
Feel your body falling to its knees
Sleeping wall of remorse
Turns your body to a corpse
Turns your body to a corpse
Turns your body to a corpse
Sleeping wall of remorse
Turns your body to a corpse

Now from dark
Kick a** beaut!!

NOTHIN BETTER LOVE IT JACK
Oh there's a Sabbath tribute album named Nativity in Black to clear up any confusion. Why would that be? The title of the song is as fallows N.I.B.
One of the best Sabbath tunes ever. My favorite album ever. So dark!
One of my first black sabbath songs i listened to and stilll love it

Funk and jazz- with that evil bent. This medley sums them up.
If someone needed the best example of Sabbath, it would be 'A National Acrobat' to me.
And with Bassically, I reach for my bass & crank it up for NIB!!
If I could thumbs up a song or ,rather, several songs more than once, this would definitely be one of the songs of which I would do such a thing.
Now I have Thou with Thee under Thy power...
Ha ha ha!! "Spinal Tap mach III. I hope you like our new direction. Jazz Odyssey. Derek Smalls on bass...he wrote this!" (OK, so I'm paraphrasing )
GUYS! NIB is about Satan trying to get laid. can't you see that? I heard nib was the name of Bill Ward's beard.

Sometimes when I hear "bassically" I think of Derek Smalls and David St. Hubbins saying "he wrote this!!!"
redpanther87
i like Rob Zombies version 2
"Always a good sign when your girl compares you to Satan." rotflmmfaowf a t m ! ! ! ! !
Marry that girl! Imagine the bride and groom dance at the wedding reception... t h e groom in his black tux, the bride in her black gown, headbanging to N.I.B.
A girl I used to see adopted N.I.B. as "our song". Always a good sign when your girl compares you to Satan.
Bassically. That's so creative. I literally lol'ed!

Why is WASP the title of this set of music when it is the least significant instrumental ? BTW roadkillrage , it is WASP/Behind the Wall of Sleep/Bassic a l l y / N I B .
Does not stand for Nativity in Black jesus. Read the wiki page.

"The title was widely rumoured to have stood for "Nativity in Black" (or to a much lesser extent, "Name In Blood"). In a 1992 interview, Geezer Butler states that the title simply refers to Bill Ward's goatee at the time, which the rest of the band thought was shaped like a pen nib; also referred to as nibby"
a good first date song!!
OH YEAH!
Contrary to popular belief, N.I.B. does not mean Nativity in Black. Nib was actually a nickname the band gave Bill Ward by Geezer Butler; I can't recall the reason - something silly. Bill was the brunt of many jokes and nicknames.
This song however is not Wasp, it's Behind the Wall of Sleep, followed by the bass intro (Bassically) and N.I.B.
N.I.B., means nativity in black!
this is typical Sabbath, all great!

3x bonus combo tune. i ate, drank & slept this album when i found it at a yard sale in '83. haven't heard "warning" or "evil woman don't you play your games with me" in a long time.
Nativity In Black
what does N.I.B. stand for??
