After years apart, Ozzy Osbourne will return to his place as vocalist to resurrect the original lineup of Black Sabbath. It’s been a long time coming but the original makers of metal have reunited and will not only take their act on the road, but may deliver a new album as well.

Sabbath have long occupied the big three of coveted original lineup reunions with Led Zeppelin and Guns N’ Roses, and just like that — there were two. News of the long-rumored reformation came today via an interview Metal Talk had with Bill Ward and Geezer Butler. They revealed that the original lineup was holed up in their “secret” studio dusting off the cobwebs for an upcoming tour.

While it wasn’t confirmed, there is also rampant speculation that the quartet will record an album together as well. That is most likely due to this statement that Ozzy made earlier this year:

“I would love to do a great album with Black Sabbath. I would love to get the credit we so roundly deserve. At the same time, the pressure would be really intense. I could go tomorrow and make an album with them, but it wouldn’t necessarily be something I would be proud of.”

Let’s hope the Ozzman is wrong about that. Sabbath fans are surely going nuts from the anticipation of the band’s first album with Ozzy in nearly 32 years, we will give you more details on this story as they become available.
