As unfortunate as it is that Bill Ward isn't participating in the current Black Sabbath reunion, it's hard for even someone as hell-bent on seeing Bill Ward behind the kit as me to not get excited about the fact that the guys are back at it.

In the latest and greatest edition of your "Brutal News" I give you the rundown on Sabbath's first reunion show and homecoming gig last Saturday (5/19) at the O2 Academy in Birmingham, England. I'll also fill you in on what Down guitarist Kirk Windstein had to say about their current tour with Black Tusk and if you're interested in helping Varg (I killed someone and am walking free) Vikernes with his upcoming table-top Role Playing Game I give you details as to how you can do so.
