Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has released a new song titled “Scent Of The Dark.“ The track, which features guitarist Sergio Momo, bassist Jimmy Crutchley, drummer Ash Sheehan, celloist Rebecca Rose, and violinist Julianne Bourne, can be found below. Notably, Iommi has also teamed up with Xerjoff and Sergio Momo for a new “Scent Of The Dark” fragrance as well.
Iommi told Rolling Stone the following about the new song:
“I’ve recorded a lot of riffs and tracks [in recent years] with Mike Exeter. And with this one, I couldn’t imagine who would sing on it; it just seemed ideal to put it down as an instrumental. I’ve had the main part for a while, and I just added some new parts to it. Then I added these other gloomier riffs to make it blend in with this perfume idea. I really liked the idea of using some violins and cellos and stuff, and so we did on this track.”
On another note, Iommi also confirmed that he wrote a new song for his Black Sabbath bandmate Ozzy Osbourne:
“As you’ve probably read, I worked with Ozzy for his album. I wrote the whole track and played on it and played the solo on it. It’s horrible, really. … No. I’m joking. No, it’s good. It’s really good. And I like what Ozzy sang on it. I think he did a really good job. And I think they had Chad [Smith] play drums on it. I’ve left it in their hands now.”
