Black Sabbath documentary, live album in the works

Posted by on April 10, 2017

Black Sabbath recently concluded their extended The End tour consisting of over eighty dates, spanning across the globe in North/South America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and concluding in Birmingham Genting Arena last February. Roughly one month later, the group officially closed the door on their extensive and historical career. However, according to guitarist Tony Iommi, we will see more from the group including a documentary. In a recent interview with nbcnews.com, Iommi stated the following:

“We’ll actually be doing a documentary. My job at the moment is to have a listen to what we’ve done.”

The article also states a live album from their two final gigs is currently in the mixing process, and that Iommi has written a piece for CSI, a show the band appeared on several years ago. Additionally, Iommi mentioned having “bags” of riffs initially written for Black Sabbath might appear on an upcoming solo album instead. A few months ago, Iommi was more  optimistic on new Black Sabbath material stating “not ruled anything out.” However, it doesn’t seem promising anymore. Speaking about the choral piece he made for the Birmingham Cathedral (the main point of the story), he says he’s “still involved in the Sabbath thing.” Whether that means more music or just the documentary and live album remains to be seen.
