On Janaury 25, Caleb Smith of “The Sick Room” radio in New Zealand conducted an interview with former BLACK SABBATH singer Tony Martin. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
Martin was recently signed to a new music publishing deal by Alan Bambrough of Sony/ATV Music Publishing Limited. Martin said he was “very pleased” and was “looking forward to expanding into other areas.”
Martin‘s next release will likely be the fourth album from GIUNTINI PROJECT, the Italian heavy metal band started in 1988 by guitarist Aldo Giuntini as a solo project. Tony thinks the CD should be called “The Shadow Of The Stone” after one of the album tracks, but the effort’s working title remains “Giuntini 4” until a decision has been made. This will be the third GIUNTINI PROJECT album Martin has appeared on.
Tony is not one to be idle and has other guest appearances being released soon, including one with young German female artist Layla Milou and a more recent one with American female artist Veronica Freeman, vocalist with BENEDICTUM.
Martin‘s last solo album, “Scream”, was released in November 2005 via MTM Music. The CD featured legendary drummer Cozy Powell (BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW, WHITESNAKE) on the track “Raising Hell” as well as songwriting contributions by another SABBATH member, Geoff Nicholls.
BLACK SABBATH released six albums with Tony Martin on vocals: “The Eternal Idol” (1987), “Headless Cross” (1989), “Tyr” (1990), “Cross Purposes” (1994), “Cross Purposes Live” (1995) and “Forbidden” (1995).
