Review by Paul Monkhouse for MPM
The master has returned, and this majestic offering is up their with some of his finest. Following the dissolution of THE metal titans, Black Sabbath’s legendary six stringer Tony Iommi has had the breathing space to dig into his archives and this monster has been unearthed and retooled.
Scent of Dark’ brings together his trademark crushing riffs and the power of classical music into one incredibly potent mix, Iommi’s trademark sound like a body blow to the senses as it artfully winds its way into your brain.
Sweeping dynamics ebb and flow, a violin and cello add colour and the guitar solo is a thing of beauty, being both tasteful and full of wonderous touches.
Easily ticking boxes for potential film soundtrack perfection, this instrumental piece tells it’s own story and it’s one to get utterly lost in. Prepare to be enthralled.
Introducing ‘Scent of Dark’. A fusion of new Iommi music, video and unique fragrance blended by Xerjoff’s Sergio Momo with major input from Tony. https://smarturl.it/viewScentofDark
