Black Sabbath have finally topped the Billboard album chart. 13, their first studio effort with Ozzy Osbourne in 35 years, will debut at number-one after selling 155,000 copies its first week in stores. It’s also the most albums they’ve sold in a debut week — their previous best was the 1998 live album Reunion, which sold 98,000 copies.

The band has commented on the achievement, with guitarist Tony Iommi saying, “The news is absolutely amazing. We couldn’t have imagined this would happen. We have the greatest fans.”

Ozzy adds, “There have been so many amazing highlights in our long career. To finally have our first number-one album in the U.S. is another incredible milestone for Black Sabbath. Thank you to all of our fans for their support and loyalty.”

And Geezer Butler says he’s “absolutely stunned. Thank you all world wide for being the best, and most patient, fans ever.”

13 is only Sabbath’s second Top 10 album in the U.S. after 1971′s Master of Reality, which hit number-eight. They first hit the Billboard 200 the week of August 29th, 1970 with their self-titled debut.
