Back in May, Honduras rock journalist Alvaro Villatoro (a.k.a. Lemmy Simmons) of Hard Heavy conducted an interview with former BLACK SABBATH singer Tony Martin. You can now listen to the chat using the SoundCloud widget below.In January 2013, Martin was signed to a new music publishing deal by Alan Bambrough of Sony/ATV Music Publishing Limited. Martin said he was "very pleased" and was "looking forward to expanding into other areas." Martin's latest release was the fourth album from GIUNTINI PROJECT, the Italian heavy metal band started in 1988 by guitarist Aldo Giuntini as a solo project. GIUNTINI "Project IV" came out on May 24 via Escape Music and features additional contributions from Ezio Secomandi (on drums), Dario Patti (on keyboards) and Fulvio Gaslini (on bass). Martin's last solo album, "Scream", was released in November 2005 via MTM Music. The CD featured legendary drummer Cozy Powell (BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW, WHITESNAKE) on the track "Raising Hell" as well as songwriting contributions by another SABBATH member, Geoff Nicholls. BLACK SABBATH released six albums with Tony Martin on vocals: "The Eternal Idol" (1987), "Headless Cross" (1989), "Tyr" (1990), "Cross Purposes" (1994), "Cross Purposes Live" (1995) and "Forbidden" (1995).
