One of my favorite bands of all time is the mighty Judas Priest. I grew up listening to them, and I've seen them a LOT of times in concert. One of the best live bands around.

Forty years in, and the metal gods are releasing their new album, Redeemer of Souls, on Tuesday. Their first since my favorite guitar player, KK Downing, left the band.  The first with new guitarist Richie Faulkner, who is an absolute beast on guitar. Check out the solo from EMGTV for some evidence. The guy can play.

We've got all the lowdown on the new Priest album for you right here at WGRD.com, with this really cool special, with Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, and Richie Faulkner talking all about the new album, and playing a bunch of songs from it!

Get ready for the return of the Priest!  Listen to the show here!
