Ever since the British Heavy Metal band JUDAS PRIEST joined the musical spectrum in 1969, they have continuously been working on their craft by delivering the masses their signature style of Metal without ever losing grip of were they come from. Formed in the small town of Birmingham, England (same town were BLACK SABBATH was formed), they are one of the bands to blame for the rise of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal! With 17 studio albums under their Metallic belt, which are prove of the bands perseverance, JUDAS PRIEST is still making Heavy Music history.

The band - Rob Halford, Ian Hill, Glenn Tipton, Scott Travis and Richie Faulkner - recently released a studio album called Redeemer Of Souls (available now via Epic Records). On this album JUDAS PRIEST went against all odds and despite having to replace K.K. Downing (who decided to not return to the band following their "farewell" tour), they managed to create an exciting album that is easily a contender for album of the year!

And we can't forget about the immense role that Rob "The Metal God" Halford has had in every single aspect of Heavy Metal: from his obvious influence within the genre, to how he made wearing leather fashionable, to becoming one of the first Metal artists to admit to his homosexuality... Halford is a living legend!

As long as JUDAS PRIEST continues to release great music and bringing the masses together, Heavy Music is in great hands.

JUDAS PRIEST is:

- Rob Halford
- Ian Hill
- Glenn Tipton
- Scott Travis
- Richie Faulkner
