"Bark At The Moon" was the third studio album created by doom metal musician Ozzy Osbourne. Released in the fall of 1983, the album was considered a commercial success and quickly reached gold status in the United States. The album acted as a threshold for Ozzy's transition into a more synth-centric, pop-metal expression. However, the album and Osbourne faced harsh criticism after a fan claimed that listening to the album had influenced him to murder his neighbor and her two children.
Initially a member of Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne was removed from that band and forced to forge a path of his own that would eventually become one of the most iconic and successful rock careers in recent history. Donning the title "Prince of Darkness" Osbourne has concocted one of the most influential and largely theatrical stage presences in the heavy metal world, inciting both fear and admiration from millions worldwide. Osbourne has remained at the center of controversy throughout his career, from dealing with drug and alcohol abuse to biting the heads off of small winged animals, but despite this has always been able to put on one hell of a show.
