Tony Iommi
(UK) / July 27, 2014

Latest News:

Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi says he'd like to collaborate with iconic Welsh singer Tom Jones. Back in the 80s, a UK rock magazine ran a spoof news story claiming that Jones, most famous for his 60's mega-hits Delilah, What's New Pussycat? and The Green, Green Grass of Home, had been lined up to front Black Sabbath. The suggestion was that the new-look Sabbath would take a concept album based on a mythical monster visiting a Welsh pit village on the road, for the Minotaur/Miner Tour. Though the story was a joke, it sparked a conversation between Iommi and Jones, which led to a friendship blossoming between the two men. "I've met Tom a few times, and we were talking one day, and he said 'Did you ever see that thing in the press about me joining you, guys?' Iommi reveals. "I said 'Yes, I did', and he said 'It's not a bad idea, is it?'"

    Halcyon Way releases its fourth full-length album simply called "Conquer". The band delivers modern metal, punishing riffs, seamlessly mixing multiple genres of rock and metal.

    "Horizons":
    Finally the eagerly anticipated sixth album of Danish Prog-Metallers Anubis Gate is here. Horizons is unquestionably the bands most mature work to date, c mbining their signature epic songwriting with the brilliant production team of Kim Olesen and Jacob Hansen.
