BLACK SABBATH Bassist Launches New Web Site

BLACK SABBATH bassist Geezer Butler has launched his new official web site at GeezerButler.com. Geezer's introductory message on the site reads as follows:

"Welcome to the site, it's been a long time coming, but I haven't really had much to say except what's been on Joe Siegler's excellent Black-Sabbath.com site. It has been a long time since the last GZR/GEEZER album, and much of the time since has been taken up with SABBATH matters. In the last year, I have rectified this situation by going into the studio and recording 'Ohmwork' . This album reflects my true feelings of my life as of October 2004. We are all on this planet together, and every individual has the God-given right to free speech, whether that God is spiritual or natural. Happy Listening!"

"Ohmwork" is scheduled for release on May 10 via Sanctuary Records.

Butler's first album in eight years, "Ohmwork" is the bassist's third solo band release. His first project under the GZR banner was 1995's "Plastic Planet" while 1997's "Black Science" was credited to GEEZER. Guitarist Pedro Howse has worked on all three albums, while vocalist Clark Brown performed on "Black Science". The group's latest addition is drummer Chad Smith (not the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS man).

GZR touring plans are being put together for fall 2005.
