Legendary Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has announced that he has begun remixing the band's 1995 album Forbidden and it will be released in 2019.

The LP features singer Tony Martin, drummer Cozy Powell and bassist Neil Murray.

"Next year will be the 'Forbidden' album coming out, which we're remixing at the moment — [engineer] Mike Exeter an myself," Iommi said in a video message posted to his Facebook page on Saturday, December 29.

"And it's been interesting to pull that apart and at least try and get some bigger sounds on it, as it should be. I know Cozy was never happy with his drum sound, and none of us were really happy with the sound of that album. So hopefully now it will be sounding better."

Iommi, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2011, had said earlier that a Black Sabbath tour in future would be "highly unlikely," but "some one-offs" could happen. "We'll never tour the world again as we did, because it is really exhausting," he had said.
