Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi Returns With New Song, Cologne 'Scent Of Dark'

Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi Returns With New Song, Cologne 'Scent Of Dark'

Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi recently launched a new cologne and released a new song, both named "Scent of Dark."

The "Scent of Dark" track is Iommi's first rock composition since Black Sabbath's 2013 album, 13.

Iommi created his signature cologne alongside his friend, perfumier Sergio Momo, who strums the guitar in the new track. Jimmy Crutchley plays bass, Ash Sheehan handles the drums, and Iommi's longtime producer Mike Exeter plays keyboards. Rebecca Rose and Julianne Bourne play cello and violin, respectively.

The "Scent of Dark" video, shot by the musicians at Sudeley Castle near Gloucestershire, England, features copious cologne imagery.

Iommi said Momo sent him a box of perfumes last year and asked him whether he would be interested in doing his own perfume.

"I had to write down all the different smells that I like, and then he built perfume from that," Iommi told Rolling Stone. "Sergio also loves music, and he plays guitar. He said, 'What about doing a tune for the scent?' And we thought it best to do an instrumental as opposed a having a vocalist. So I had this idea and I played it to him, and he liked it, and then I just added more parts to it to make it what it was."

Iommi had said earlier that he knew how Black Sabbath fans would react about his decision to develop his own perfume, saying, "They'll think I've gone mad. It's something I would've never thought of involving myself in. But it's been nice to be involved in it."

Mötley Crüe Sell Recorded Music Catalog To BMG

Mötley Crüe Sell Recorded Music Catalog To BMG

Record label BMG has announced that it has acquired the entire recorded catalog of Mötley Crüe.

BMG said the deal is the largest single catalog acquisition since the global music company was founded in 2008.

The agreement includes the iconic band's entire recorded output spanning their 40-year career totaling nine studio albums from their 1981 debut Too Fast For Love through the latest release in 2008 Saints of Los Angeles, as well as several platinum-selling live albums and compilation sets.

It comes as the band are on a new high after Netflix biopic The Dirt converted a new generation of fans with an astonishing 92 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes for the 'warts 'n' all' movie.

"It feels amazing to be collaborating with our new partners at BMG. Their extensive track record of success in Rock made them the perfect home to continue preserving and growing our musical legacy, ensuring we always stay at The Top," Mötley Crüe said in a statement.

Mötley Crüe's manager Allen Kovac added, "After working side by side with BMG for well over a decade, the relationship we have developed and success we've accomplished over the years made this a very easy transition to entrust with this treasured Rock catalog".

In June 2022, Mötley Crüe will kick off their previously postponed U.S. stadium tour, marking the group's return to the stage for their first major concert run since 2015.

BMG said its global catalog team will embark on its plan to re-promote the heavy metal band's work beginning in 2022.

Queen's Brian May Slams 'Frightening' Move To Scrap Gendered BRIT Awards

Queen's Brian May Slams 'Frightening' Move To Scrap Gendered BRIT Awards

Queen guitarist Brian May slammed the BRIT Awards over their decision to scrap gendered categories, describing the "frightening" move as "a decision that has been made without enough thought."

May's sharp criticism comes after the BRITs scrapped the male solo artist, female solo artist, international male solo artist and international female solo artist categories and introduced two gender-neutral categories - artist of the year and international artist of the year.

The BRITs explained the change was to reward artists "solely for their music and work, rather than how they choose to identify or as others may see them" and was part of the event's "commitment to evolving the show to be as inclusive and as relevant as possible."

The decision to change the BRIT Awards' system came after non-binary singer Sam Smith criticized the awards for a lack of inclusivity.

During ITV's Palooza event in London on November 23, May told The Mirror that the decision has been made without enougth thought. "A lot of things work quite well and can be left alone," he said.

"I get so sick of people trying to change things without thinking of the long-term consequences," he added. "Some of these things are an improvement, some of them are not."

May felt there was an "atmosphere of fear everywhere because people are afraid to say how they really think," adding, "I think so many people are feeling, 'Hang on, this isn't quite right.' But they don't dare say anything. Eventually, there will be some kind of explosion."

He added: "[Queen] would be forced to have people of different colors and different sexes and we would have to have a trans [person]. You know life doesn't have to be like that. We can be separate and different."

Blink-182's Mark Hoppus Shares Uplifting Message About Battle With Cancer

In an uplifting Thanksgiving message, Mark Hoppus shared about his battle with cancer and the current state of his health.

"I have so much to be thankful for today. This photo is from June, halfway through chemo, no idea if it was working or not, relegated to the bathroom floor, retching," the Blink-182 singer/bassist wrote on Instagram on Thanksgiving Day.

Hoppus, 49, also shared a photo of himself crouching by a toilet.

"If I ever complain about something trivial or unimportant, please show me this photo to remind me of how bad things can be, and how truly blessed I am. I hope you all have an amazing day with friends and family. Happy Thanksgiving," he added.

Hoppus had revealed in June that he had been battling cancer for three months.

He has been giving regular updates on the treatment for Stage 4-A Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma since then.

The "What's My Age Again?" singer announced in September that he is cancer-fee.

Hoppus said that he still has to get scanned every six months and it will take him until the end of the year to get back to normal.

Bruce Kulick Shares Video Tribute To Late KISS Drummer Eric Carr

Former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick shared a tribute video for late bandmate Eric Carr on the 30th anniversary of the drummer's death.

In the video, Kulick shows photos of himself and Carr as he recalls their friendship and performances together.

"Eric Carr passed away 30 years ago, on November 24th, 1991. Although it sounds like a long period of time his presence has never left me. He was my dear friend and bandmate. My years traveling, working and playing in KISS with him, were unforgettable. Please enjoy my memories of this great man, and know his legend will always live on in the hearts and minds of his fans, family and friends," reads the tribute video's description on YouTube.

"Eric was a powerful drummer," Kulick says in the video. "His drum solos were exciting and thunderous. He was small in stature but chose the largest drum kit possible and played them like a giant. I joined KISS in the fall of 1984, touring in the U.K. and Europe. Eric and I quickly became friends. Filming Animalize Live was certainly a thrill for both of us."

While performing on the Kiss Kruise last month, Kulick included several Carr originals in his set, including "Can You Feel It?" and "Eyes of Love," two songs from Carr's 1991 solo album, Rockology, as well as "Little Caesar," the only KISS song Carr sang lead on.

Midnight Oil Announce New Album 'Resist,' Final Tour

Midnight Oil Announce New Album 'Resist,' Final Tour

Australian rock band Midnight Oil recently announced a new album and a Farewell Tour.

Midnight Oil announced that a chapter of their half-a-century long career will come to a memorable close next year with the release of a 12-song LP they recorded with late bass player Bones Hillman and a series of big gigs. Both are titled Resist.

The band also announced that this will be their final concert tour while making it clear that this does not mean the end of the Oils.

Each of the members will continue their own projects over the years ahead. They also remain very open to recording new music together in the future and supporting causes in which they believe.

The tour will see them perform classic Midnight Oil songs from across their repertoire while also showcasing some "urgent new works."

Resist engages with the issues of today and tomorrow - like the lead single "Rising Seas," which tackles the climate crisis in typically uncompromising fashion.

The album pre-order and Australasian tickets will go on-sale beginning November 30.

Midnight Oil said they are also planning a handful of international concerts, subject to Covid restrictions.

Drummer Rob Hirst says, "If I look back, I see a blur of familiar names and faces: Jim, Pete, Martin, Bear and me, slamming loud prog-pop in a Chatswood garage; Giffo, magnificent, rocking back and forth at his first Royal Antler gig; Bonesy, headphones on, singing, lounging on the deck learning our catalogue."

"I see our managers in their offices; our folks-in-the-engine-room; our wives and trusted friends, and the tiny faces of the 'Baby Oils'; and the first two rows of a thousand gigs: Midnight Oil fans, pumping, jumping, singing louder than the band...But I don't look back," he added.

Resist will be Midnight Oil's 15th studio album.

A Midnight Oil special performance on "The Sound" is set to air on Sunday at 5:30 pm on ABC TV or ABC iview.
