Tony’s Thoughts

Tony’s thoughts forthcoming.

Forbidden Band


  1. A bloody good album, I like it a lot. A solid production with some really good tracks. I enjoy this as much as Cross Purposes, Dehumanizer, Headless Cross etc. It has a better sound then the drum-overpowered Tyr and the tinny under-produced Dehumanizer. I didn’t hear this album until this year when I bought a cassette copy, I had let others opinions and crap reviews put me off – big mistake. A great hard rock album.

  2. last album with Tony Martin.
    Once again, band played at the Elysée Montmartre, Paris…
    Cozy was replaced by the great Bobby…
    Show was amazing..I will always remember “war pigs”..Tony Martin on top !!!!!

  3. Hi Tony,
    When will forbidden, be re released,
    Excellent album, apart from ice t, who mars it slightly.
    I saw you in Manchester on this tour,
    Loved the show, pure class it was too.

    I hope you are well Tony, and still making music.

    All the best, to you.

  4. Hi Tony,
    Will you be releasing the, remastered version of Forbidden, any time soon.
    I saw you on this tour, in Manchester, brilliant show,
    Sincerely, s Bradley,

  5. Hi.

    will you be re releasing cross purposes on vinyl at any time tony ?
