I don't think it's completely arbitrary to assert that Sabbath without Ozzy or Bill Ward is just a wee bit more "changed" than Metallica without Cliff Burton.
The main difference I see is that the name of Heaven and Hell is just epiphenomena from a specific set of historical conditions (i.e Sharon being a c**t). It s fair to state that the name may grant the partioning but also it is fair to say that it is necessary to analyze if the name Heaven and Hell is a necessary representation of Black Sabbath or not, i.e is this Black Sabbath or not? Of course getting into deeper detail than just the name.
