BLACK SABBATH Bassist GEEZER BUTLER: Solo Album Update

Joe Siegler of BLACK SABBATH fan site Black-Sabbath.com has posted the following update on the new solo album from SABBATH bassist Geezer Butler, entitled "Ohmwork":

"'Ohmwork' has a current release projection of April 2005 (the exact date is not set yet). The album will be released by Sanctuary. There's no cover art available yet, but Geezer's people tell me that it should be completed shortly, and when I have it available, I'll put it online here. The track listing for 'Ohmwork' is:

01. Misfit
02. Pardon My Depression
03. Prisoner 103
04. I Believe
05. Aural Sects
06. Pseudocide
07. Pull the String
08. Alone
09. Dogs of Whore
10. Don't You Know

"A bit about the band behind 'Ohmwork':

"Of course, it's got Geezer Butler on bass. Geezer also produced the album. If you're reading this news on my BLACK SABBATH site, and you don't know who Geezer Butler is, what's wrong with you? :)

"On vocals we have Clark Brown. Clark also handled vocals on Geezer's last solo release, that being 1997's 'Black Science'.

"On guitar, we have Pedro Howse, who has been on both of Geezer's previous solo releases in 1995 and 1997. He was also involved with Geezer back in 1985 when Geezer first tried to put together a solo project under the moniker of 'THE GEEZER BUTLER BAND.'

"Manning the drumkit and forming the rhythm section with Geezer is newcomer Chad Smith, a drummer from the St. Louis area described as 'incredible.'

"Also involved on the production side as the album's mixer is Toby Wright. Toby has been involved with a lot of high profile bands such as SLAYER, ALICE IN CHAINS, PRIMUS, JERRY CANTRELL, and SEVENDUST.

"The band will be marketed as 'GZR'. This is kind of amusing as on the 'Plastic Planet' album the band was marketed as 'G//Z/R', and on 'Black Science' as 'GEEZER'. So it'll have to be some other combination on his next album. :)

"I hope to have album cover art shortly (within a week or so), when I get that, I'll repost with the cover art (or any other 'Ohmwork' information I get)."
