Welcome to the first of many installments of Tony Martin Tuesday! In the year 2015, the first and third Tuesday of each month will be known as TONY MARTIN TUESDAY. Why Tony Martin? Well, because he’s the fucking Cat and because Tony Martin fucking rules. This week we’re jamming the title track from the monstrous album, Headless Cross.
How the fuck did we get this far into Tony Martin Tuesday and not talk about this song yet? Can Cozy Motherfucking Powell be any more of a powerhouse on the drums? Holy Dio he is the man and then, whoa, wait, what is that riff? That riff just shreds my face to ribbons and then here comes Tony delivering such bad ass lines as, “Where all witches meet. On a night such as this.” I will never for the life of me understand why The Cat never got more praise for his role in Sabbath. This song is just one of many testaments to the strength and power that this line up had. They may not have been commercially big but this line up fucking killed it in a huge way.
