Seventh Star is the twelfth studio album by Black Sabbath, released in January 1986.
It was originally written, recorded, and intended to be the first solo album by guitarist Tony Iommi, but due to pressures by Warner Bros. Records and the prompting of band manager Don Arden, the record was billed as Black Sabbath featuring Tony Iommi. Glenn Hughes, ex-Deep Purple bassist and vocalist, was lead singer but did not play bass on this release.

Famous quotes containing the words star and/or seventh:
“A star was broken
Into the centuries of the child
Myselves grieve now, and miracles cannot atone.”
—Dylan Thomas (19141953)
“Expecting me to grovel,
she carefully covers both feet
with the hem of her skirt.
She pretends to hide
a coming smile
and wont look straight at me.
When I talk to her,
she chats with her friend
in cross tones.
Even this slim girls rising anger
let alone her deep love.”
—Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
