Remember last year, when Black Sabbath chose to premiere a new song from their then-forthcoming album, 13, on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation? It turns out that they’re not done with the CBS crime drama. Or at least guitarist Tony Iommi isn’t, as he’s written an original piece of music for the show that will be airing this Sunday (11/2), and if Iommi has his way, there might be a little more scoring in the future. From his Facebook page:
People have been asking what exactly I’m doing at the moment, we’ll I’m getting back in the studio having tried to make myself rest after the tours. I’m writing, mostly just putting ideas down rather than complete songs. I like to create all sorts of moods with my music and then decide later how they might be used.
One specific piece though is for the CSI TV series that will be aired in the US on November 2nd. I was asked if I’d be interested so I had a look at the footage and came up with an idea they seemed to like. It’s not very long but it was different working with images rather than just music, I’d certainly be up for doing more.
Well, satan willing, Iommi is healthy enough to not only get back in the studio and write for the next (and final?) Black Sabbath album, but is actually up for contributing more original music. That’s a win for everyone – the more music we can get from the original architect of heavy metal, the better, as far as we’re concerned.
