The album marked a reunion with original band members, singer Ozzy Osbourne, and bassist Geezer Butler. Among its songs, "God Is Dead?" - a doom metal composition, references German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche's famous proclamation "God is dead."

Today’s song comes from the 19th studio album by Black Sabbath called 13. The song is called God Is Dead?

Black Sabbath announce on this date in 2011, they will reunite with their original lineup for a new album and tour in 2012. The press conference is hosted by Henry Rollins. 13 is the nineteenth and final studio album by English heavy metal band Black Sabbath. It was released on 10 June 2013 through Vertigo Records, acting as their first studio album in 18 years (the longest gap between albums during their run) following Forbidden (1995). It was the band’s first studio recording with original singer Ozzy Osbourne and bassist Geezer Butler since the live album Reunion (1998), which contained two new studio tracks. It was also the first studio album with Osbourne since Never Say Die! (1978), and with Butler since Cross Purposes (1994)

“God Is Dead?” has been described as a doom metal song. Both the song title and figure on the single’s cover, by Heather Cassils, are a reference to Friedrich Nietzsche, a German philosopher who is famous for saying that “God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers?”. It is one of Black Sabbath’s longer original compositions, second to “Megalomania” from their 1975 album, Sabotage
