Then he/she start to tune up lowery is three of semi-tone to making easier him. Effect of change [at] its, yielded sound become very quickly, that thing is density increase and hardness. Moment he play ' Black Sabbath' and ' Wicked World' a club for the first time, everybody surprised to see its, he use dissonant amplifier of Heath Robertson Range master (pedal of distortion in era first), so that create Black Sabbath sound which grasp and is fearful.

After the time/date of that Tony Iommi play together band group of blues / rock like The Rocklin’s Chevrolets between years 1964-1965. Year 1966-1967, he leave it’s as labor and decides to play at for The of Rest in Germany with its schoolmate that is Bill Ward as drummer.
