What Is This That’s Stands Before Me?


Bow down in thanks to thy master...

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of both the self-titled Black Sabbath album and Paranoid, Sacred Bones is proud to present What Is This That Stands Before Me?, a compilation of Sabbath covers recorded by artists from across our roster. Black Sabbath stands at the crossroads of every Sacred Bones employee and artist’s mu-sical taste, and it was a great pleasure for us to work together to reimagine some of their most beloved songs. Here you’ll find Sabbath through the filter of the post-Soviet darkwave of Molchat Doma, the experimental folk of Hilary Woods, the laid-back psych of Moon Duo, and a half dozen more genres besides.

Satan’s coming ’round the bend.

1. The Soft Moon: Black Sabbath
2. Molchat Doma: Heaven and Hell
3. Thou: Supernaut
4. Marissa Nadler: Solitude
5. Hilary Woods: N.I.B.
6. Zola Jesus: Changes
7. Moon Duo: Planet Caravan
8. Dean Hurley: Warning (Bar Band Version)
9. Uniform: Symptom of the Universe
