During a question and answer session held at the Whitley Bay film festival, where the documentary “The End of The End” was presented, which shows the closing of the long Black Sabbath tours, guitarist Tony Iommi was asked if he doesn’t want to produce new material.
“I’m still putting stuff together,” Iommi replied (see video below). “I’m still writing stuff; I’ve put ideas down on tapes. When all this nice, sunny weather goes and it gets grim, I shall start going in the studio and putting it down.”
“My engineer, who I had for everything with me at home, he’s just done Judas Priest’s album. Now he’s finished that, and we’ll hopefully start again and put some ideas down. I don’t know what it’s gonna be yet — whether it’ll be an instrumental album. I’ve been approached by a lot of people to do something with them.”
The guitarist recently told The List that he is beggining to work on the remix of the 1996 Sabbath album “Forbidden”, that had the singer Tony Martin, the late Cozy Powell on drums and Neil Murray on bass.
“That’s an album I’ve never been satisfied with, so I’m about to start pulling that apart and remix it.”
