Black Sabbath made it to the top of the UK album charts and set a new record for the longest amount of time between number one albums in the process.

Sabbath's latest studio album, 13, is the first number one in almost 43 years for Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler, setting a new record for length of time between number ones.

The chart-climbers are said to be "in shock" over the success of 13, having had their last UK number one in 1970 with Paranoid.

The Heavy Metal legends, along with Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilks, beat Beady Eye's BE to the top spot by 13,000 copies, followed by Rod Stewart's Time at number three.

Frontman Ozzy said "Rod's the same as us, we've got something other people haven't got. We know our craft."
