Zeitgeist Film Series Creator Peter Joseph Directs New Black Sabbath Music Video "God is Dead?"

"LOS ANGELES, June 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Controversial filmmaker and social activist Peter Joseph, made world famous by his counter-culture/social revolution film series under the banner title of "Zeitgeist", meaning the "general intellectual, moral and cultural climate of an era", was tapped by Black Sabbath to direct the nearly 9 min. epic, first single release of the group since their original formation disbanded in 1978 with the leaving of Ozzy Osborne. The new album is titled "13"."

In an interview, director Peter Joseph, GENTLE MACHINE PRODUCTIONS LLC, stated:

"After an initial hesitancy in the direction proposed using just existing footage from my films, I quickly realized it was to be an extremely interesting and original expression. The gesture of the song "God is Dead?", with its subtle reflection on the often dark world we inhabit and questioning of how such a world can be if there was a god, resonated with me."

"It was expressed at the start that my work had been an influence on the song to begin with so that was very inspiring to hear. I grew up listening to early Black Sabbath and am a big fan of the core message. Songs such as 'War Pigs' and the anti-war, pro-unity gesture found in those early albums are very much in line with my values. I was honored to help."

Uhh, that's pretty awesome in my book - all the best to Peter Joseph and Black Sabbath.

Cool. Good for Joey. Here's to hoping he can get me interested in the song, because that live video was snooze worthy.

te he, if they're going to make such a snoozey 9 minute song they should shorten it up, ahh? It's a Black Sabbath lullaby.

I guess I'm just stoked for PJ, since they came to him and basically said they enjoyed the Zeitgeist series. However, the song title is 'God is Dead' which obviously would be related to the religion topic but, it really has nothing to do with ZG1. I would much much rather have preferred to have a far more upbeat and kick-ass tune telling a great story of the mythology included in ZG1. Any Black Sabbath or Ozzy Osbourne fans around here? Listen to his lyrics from the song 'Over the mountain' from the 'Diary Of A Madman' album.

Also 'I don't know'
