Black Sabbath, who have been reissuing their albums in super deluxe boxset format, will revisit the Tony Martin era albums, according to a post on the singer’s Facebook page.
“So I got a call from Tony Iommi’s manager,” Tony says. “It seems there is now a record deal for my era of Sabbath albums.
“So It looks like a reissue is actually going to happen.”
Martin fronted the band from 1987 to 1991 and again from 1993 to 1997, working on the studio albums The Eternal Idol, Headless Cross, Tyr, Cross Purposes and Forbidden.
Tony Martin has just released his new solo album Thorns. “Tony Martin is a singer with an impeccable pedigree,” Mark Rotherham wrote in his MetalTalk review, “and this album utterly endorses that.
“Thorns does that very unique thing of staying within the narrow genre of Heavy Metal while at the same time showing just how different it can all sound. This is a varied album that will appeal to everyone.
“What a great way to start the year.”
