Guitarist Tony Iommi has confirmed that the albums BLACK SABBATH recorded with singer Tony Martin will be reissued in 2023
The iconic BLACK SABBATH guitarist discussed plans for the long-awaited reissues while celebrating what would have been drummer Cozy Powell‘s 75th birthday on Thursday, December 29.
Iommi posted a pic of Powell to social media and also included the caption: “Cozy Powell would have been 75 today. Looking forward to the release of the IRS albums in 2023, a tribute to his great playing.”
Tony Martin also recently discussed the plan to reissue the albums he recorded with BLACK SABBATH in an interview with The Metal Voice last month, saying: “Honestly, I have no idea what’s happening with it. I know it’s gonna be next year, but that’s all I know.”
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).
