Latest News 4th May - 'Great Lefty, Live Forever' - Compilation CD release featuring Rekuiem.

Rekuiem are pleased to announce their inclusion on a new compilation album entitled 'Great Lefty, Live Forever' in honour of the living legend and metal riff master Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath. The double CD album which is released this week on the Tanzan record label features 20 brand new versions of Black Sabbath classics newly recorded by the many artistes who have contributed to the project. All profits are being donated to Tony Iommi's chosen charity which is Macmillan Cancer Support. Rekuiem's song of choice for the album is the all time Sabbath classic 'Paranoid' which the band have especially re-arranged, and it is rumoured that Ozzy and Sharon have already voiced their approval of the song's re-working. Along with Rekuiem, other artistes featured on the album are Dario Mollo (Tony Martin, Voodoo Hill), Mark Boals (Yngwie Malmsteen, Dio Disciples, Dokken), Mario Parga (Graham Bonnett, Forcefield, Cozy Powell's Hammer) Victor Griffin (Pentagram, Death Row) Tony Martin (Black Sabbath). Also a new artiste Kyle Cousins expresses his love and admiration to the Black Sabbath guitar legend with producers Damon Elliott and Michael Politz performing a song with Vinny Appice (former Black Sabbath and Heaven & Hell drummer), Barry Goudreau (guitarist for Boston), and Hugh McDonald (David Bromberg, Alice Cooper, Bon Jovi, Lita Ford).

Record company press release

Tanzan Music and a team of Tony Iommi supporters are set to release

“GREAT LEFTY: LIVE FOREVER! TRIBUTE TO TONY IOMMI GODFATHER OF METAL” on 4th May.

Tanzan Music and “Tony Iommi Fan-Tastic” team of Iommi supporters together with Facebook communities “Tony Iommi The Man The Master The Legend” and “Global Black Sabbath Convention” are proud to announce the release of the compilation tribute in honour of Black Sabbath’s true heart and soul, legendary Riffmaster Tony Iommi on May 4th.

The first ever tribute to Iommi is titled “GREAT LEFTY: LIVE FOREVER. TRIBUTE TO TONY IOMMI GODFATHER OF METAL”

When Tony Iommi was diagnosed with Lymphoma cancer in 2011, followed by extensive chemo and radiotherapy, it was a hard shock for his die hard fans. Millions of fans worldwide took to social networking pages to express both dismay and support for him. The horrible illness wasn’t able to stop him working on a new album. And still undergoing therapy, Tony managed to play over 84 concerts all around the world with Black Sabbath, showing incredible positivity, enthusiasm and love for music.

The compilation is an act of solidarity towards Tony from Pals & Fans. The tribute includes participations from well-known artists from all around the world, and the bands and solo artists “children of Iommi” as having Iommi’s music as their major influence. All the songs were kindly donated for the cause. The profits from compilation sales will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Some of the artists participating are: Dario Mollo (Tony Martin, Voodoo Hill) featuring Mark Boals (Savoy Brown, Malmsteen, Dio Disciples, Dokken), Mario Parga (Mario Parga Band, Graham Bonnet, Forcefield, Cozy Powell’s Hammer), doom legend Victor Griffin (Pentagram, Death Row) with his current band Place Of Skulls, Giuntini featuring Tony Martin, and a young talented artist Kyle Cousins, singer and songwriter, huge Iommi Fan, who also happens to have autism. He began his journey with autism at two years old by losing all his language. Through years of intensive intervention he has made continual progress; so much so that now he loves nothing better than to express himself onstage through his music. Cousins champions the autism awareness movement, being a source of hope and inspiration for the autism community. Kyle Cousins expresses his love and admiration to Black Sabbath’s guitar legend, performing a song with Vinnie Appice (former Sabbath and Heaven and Hell drummer), Barry Goudreau (guitarist for Boston), Hugh McDonald (David Bromberg, Alice Cooper, Bon Jovi, Lita Ford).

24th AUGUST 2011 - NEWS  - After performing some great UK shows last year, Steve Slater from Rekuiem has been concentrating recently on the writing and pre-recording of songs for another album to be entitled 'Raise The Dead'. The band are also looking forward to more gigs across Europe as well as in the U.K. The last 3 gigs Rekuiem played went extremely well with the band going down great at Route 44 in Birmingham and taking JB's Dudley by storm a couple of nights later. The 3rd gig at the River rooms in Stourbridge also saw Rekuiem receive a rave reception. At all gigs the band have given the crowd a taster of some of the new material from the planned new record and the new songs have proved to be very popular with the fans. More info on the new album and any forthcoming live shows will follow.  (Live pics, left to right, top - Chity Somapala - Steve Slater. Below - Gordon Denny, Neil Taylor, Paul Rodgers).
