Black Sabbath will formally unleash "End of the Beginning" — the next single from the heavy metal icons' upcoming album, 13 — on May 15, during the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation's season finale, but fans can sample the driving track's unholy glory right now, thanks to fan-shot footage filmed during Sabbath's recent gig in New Zealand. Like "God Is Dead?", the impending full-length's recently released lead single, "End of the Beginning" clocks in at an epic eight minutes. As Ozzy Osbourne has been teasing for months, the new song oozes a "very bluesy, very jammy" feel and Tony Iommi's blistering guitar prowess.

Please excuse the nosebleed view in the video above; the audio is surprisingly crisp. For a better seat, watch the performance here.
