Heaven & Hell was a collaboration featuring Black Sabbath members Tony
Iommi and Geezer Butler along with former members Ronnie James Dio and Vinny Appice. The four members of Heaven & Hell recorded and toured together as Black Sabbath from 1980 to 1982, and again from 1991 to 1992. After they reunited to record three new songs for the 2006 compilation album, Black Sabbath: The Dio Years, they embarked on a 2007–2008 tour. Iommi, owner of the Black Sabbath name, decided to call the touring group Heaven & Hell, to differentiate the project from the Ozzy
Osbourne-led Black Sabbath. The band’s name was taken from the first Dio-fronted Black Sabbath album, Heaven and Hell. Active since 2006, the group disbanded following Dio’s death from stomach cancer in 2010.
