TONY IOMMI

Australian Guitar - - Feature -

The Metal Monarch GREAT­EST ACHIEVE­MENTS

In­vent­ing metal through a com­bi­na­tion of dark im­agery and an in­dus­trial ac­ci­dent that robbed him of two fret­ting-hand fin­ger­tips, ne­ces­si­tat­ing lower tun­ings and shift­ing power-chord shapes around to cre­ate riffs. WHERE TO START Iron Man Iommi at his riffi­est. BOSS LEVEL The Sab­bath Stones

Taken from the crim­i­nally-over­looked Tyr al­bum of 1990. Iommi takes the style he be­gan forg­ing in the ‘70s and ap­plies it to pro­gres­sive metal in a way that sounds more like 2000s Gothen­burg metal than you may ex­pect.
