QUARTZ: New Album And Compilation In The Works

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
The British hard rockin' Heavy Metal legend QUARTZ is writing material for a new album and is putting finishing touches on the compilation with previously unreleased studio material from the '80s, which will come out later this year via Skol Records.

QUARTZ were formed in 1973 in Birmingham, and their debut same titled album, produced by BLACK SABBATH's Tony Iommi, came out in 1977. Their second studio album "Stand Up And Fight" from 1980, and the 12" EP "Satan's Serenade" which was released the same year, are considered as classic and legendary releases of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. One of the founding members of QUARTZ, Geoff Nicholls, joined BLACK SABBATH in 1979 as a session musician, and except supporting the band on stage, recorded all keyboards that can be heard on all BLACK SABBATH albums released between 1980 and 1995.
