Judas Priest to Unleash Vikings, Dragons, Aliens and More on ‘Redeemer of Souls’

We couldn’t be more excited for Judas Priest‘s upcoming album ‘Redeemer of Souls.’ We’ve all heard the singles and song clips released by Priest so far, but in this exclusive interview with our brother site Ultimate Classic Rock, vocalist Rob Halford and guitarists Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner offer even more exciting insight into ‘Redeemer of Souls.’

Judas Priest’s 17th studio album is in one word: epic. The concepts are grand, Priest introduce new deities, the guitar work is incredibly dynamic and Rob Halford’s voice cements his role as the Metal God.

‘Redeemer of Souls’ succeeds Priest’s 2008 album, ‘Nostradamus,’ which explores the concept of its title character. However, ‘Redeemer of Souls’ is extremely different than ‘Nostradamus.’

“We felt it was important to make another classic metal album, which is generally what Priest has been famous for over the last 40 years,” Halford tells Ultimate Classic Rock. “We had great success with ‘Nostradamus,’ which was something that we’d always wanted to try. I think there was a nice enough space of time, musically, to do a lot of things but primarily just to kind of get all of the pieces into place to make what we feel is one of our best records — with all of the elements of what classic Priest stands for.”

Halford adds, “This album has got vikings, dragons, aliens, a bit of bible thumping and some guns.”
