British metal gods JUDAS PRIEST have started a countdown stating that in five days visit JudasPriest.com for more information regarding their anxiously-anticipated new album that is expected later this year.
In a recent interview with Artisan News at the RONNIE JAMES DIO This Is Your Life Tribute Concert and Awards Gala in Hollywood, Judas Priest singer Rob Halford (who also received the Man On The Silver Mountain Award) revealed that the band's long-awaited new album is done.
The Metal God states: "The record is finished as of today (March 17th). It's a relief, because like any band you put your heart and soul into it. It's not an easy thing to do 40 years later."
Check out the report below.
Speaking to BraveWords last year, Halford touched upon the content of the first album to feature new guitarist Richie Faulkner: "I think that what we’re doing now is important for Priest, just for ourselves, the band, and when this record is completed, I think it will be another valuable piece of metal, that is relevant to the follow-up from Nostradamus. We’re working hard to make it a very, very strong heavy metal record.”
