Ozzfest may have gone away, but it never really goes away, does it? It pops back up for one-offs and limited runs, reminding us of its former glory. Turns out that the once annual tour, which was immobilized by the Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Fest, is giving it another go, this time in Japan. The festival is set to head to the Far East on May 11 and 12 of 2013. If you've got a lot of frequent flyer miles, cash 'em and go head bang on the other side of the world. Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne always curate one helluva show, even in truncated form. [Metal Insider]

Baroness
frontman John Baizley was incredibly frank in a the second part of a recent interview discussing the band's near-death experience and the severity of the injuries sustained in a van accident over the summer. The singer opened up about his daily rehab and how once-simple tasks like opening a bottle of water had to be re-learned. He also revealed that had his arm injury been any worse, amputation was a possibility. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the band as it recovers. [Loudwire]
