Black Sabbath: The creators of doom-laden, scary, dark heavy metal. Eurovision: The relentlessly cheery international song contest. Normally it would be unlikely that anyone would mention them in the same sentence. Or even in the same day. Until now.
Sabbath's guitarist and leader Tony Iommi just posted a rather surprising note to his website, starting with something of an understatement: "Well here's something different..." He went on to say, "One of my demo ideas has been chosen as the Armenian entry for the Eurovision Song Contest!" Iommi composed the music and a band called Dorians wrote the lyrics to the song "Lonely Planet."
