Black Sabbath – Tyr (1990)

Tyr seems to ranked high amongst the Tony Martin era Sabbath records. Personally, it’s one of my least favourites, coming along like a second-rate Headless Cross, if I could be so bold. The later Martin stuff, although much more critically reviled, seems heavier and more in the spirit of Sabbath than something like this. It doesn’t help here that it sounds dated and out of touch, even for its release date. This is a fault of the production more than anything.
