Black Sabbath. They’re an enormous source of pride for us West Midlands metalheads, and their compelling claim to have invented the genre we love centres on the guitar player.
Tony Iommi is a true icon, and almost 20 years ago he flexed his creative muscles on an eponymous solo project.
This is The Decayist, a monthly podcast from This Decay. In each episode Chris Nee or Dave Musson nominates an album the other doesn’t know. We talk about it for a few minutes before passing a verdict.
In this episode, Dave introduces Chris to Iommi, the star-studded solo album by Tony Iommi, before asking the three questions that matter:
What’s your three-word review?
What’s your rating out of ten?
And will you be adding Iommi to your record collection?
Iommi came out in 2000.
