[Judas Priest] 'Firepower'

Recommended Posts

British heavy metal legends JUDAS PRIEST will release their new studio album, "Firepower", in early 2018. The band will support the disc's release with a North American tour, which will kick off on March 13 in Pennsylvania, and wrap up on May 1 in Texas.


Rob Halford stated about the progress of the recording sessions for PRIEST's new disc: "We're almost done. We're in that final hurdle before we get to the finishing line. It is sounding monumental. It's gonna blow your socks off. We're thrilled. We've got this big metal monster looming in the background, about to drop early next year, with a world tour to coincide."

Can't wait, Redeemer of Souls was pretty good.

I liked ROS a lot. Saw JP perform songs from this cd last year. Steel Panther opened for them. lol It was an awesome show.

^^ Sounds like business as usual for Priest, but will definitely check out the album, as there's always something great on every release.

When is the album out again??

Sounds like a pretty normal Priest single, which is fine. Nothing too flashy, but that's okay. I just hope the album is a bit more adventurous. Production sounds a lot better than Redeemer and Halford even sounds better. Love the way he sounds here. So, I'm pretty excited to hear the rest.

EDIT: Actually, when I think about Priest's previous reunion singles (Revolution, Nostradamus, and Redeemer Of Souls), this song is so much better. It's still fairly plain overall, but it's so much more energized than their previous first choices.

Seen folk moaning and saying they'll be asking for refunds as Tipton isn't going to be touring. What are they supposed to do? He only came to the decision last Thursday after rehearsing with the band and realising that he physically wouldn't be able to tour.  

Hopefully more reasonable people will go to shows and get right behind the band and support the new record that Glenn worked on.

I wish Glenn was still able to tour with them, but there's no way I'll ask for a refund. I still very much want to see them. It's sad, but the new record seems like it's going to kick ass, so bring on the shows.

Great album. Apparently it hit #5 on the British charts, first time they hit the top 5 since British Steel in 1980.
