It was a sensational news in September 2006 - the possibility of a reunion of the lineup which created the Black Sabbath's album Heaven And Hell (1980) was first announced on the Spanish site. Guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler, drummer Bill Ward and singer Ronnie James Dio were going to form a new band - Heaven And Hell. Rumour of such a reunion was officially confirmed by the following announcement on Tony Iommi's official website:

"The highly anticipated reunion of Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward appears to be shaping up and taking a new form. After various promoters have approached their respective management; the guys have started taking all of this very seriously, as they have wanted to reunite for some time now. It looks as if the new shape may be that of Heaven and Hell - that's the moniker that the band is likely to use on their new venture. If all goes well, Heaven and Hell should be hitting the road in early 2007."

The same announcement also appeared on that of Ronnie James Dio's and Geezer Butler's official web sites. The final piece of confirmation arrived when an announcement appeared on Ozzy Osbourne's website wishing Tony Iommi and Ronnie James Dio luck with their projects in the future.
