Tony Iommi, iconic guitarist for Black Sabbath, whose monolithic riffs are rightly credited with single-handily creating the vast genre known as heavy metal, aside from his 2017 acoustic collaboration with the Birmingham Cathedral Choir, returns with his first new electric music since the release of the 2013 Black Sabbath album 13.
Titled Scent Of Dark, the new single is an epic instrumental track that is distinctively Iommi. From the doom-laden intro, the harmonic leads and the crushing riff, there is no mistaking the distinctive style that has sold over a hundred million albums worldwide and created a paradigm shift in the world of rock.
Scent Of Dark is inspired by and the product of a recent friendship struck up during the pandemic between Iommi and Sergio Momo, acclaimed perfumer, and designer for Italian luxury perfume house Xerjoff, well known for its unique and individual creations and collaborations in the fragrance world. Sergio is also an accomplished guitarist, and his fine fretwork can be heard on Scent Of Dark.
