Judas Priest Frontman Releasing Christmas Album

(antiMusic) Hell Bent for Santa? You will be this year as Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford drops his version of a Christmas album on fans (Oops, in these politically correct times we are supposed to refer to it as a "holiday" album like his publicist did... but we'll go with Rob on this one). Here is the official announcement:

"Well, I've always said I wanted to produce a Christmas CD," comments Rob Halford. "The Halford band has assembled a fantastic release, and we're excited to have produced a collection of holiday tracks which all of us have enjoyed from a very early age."

Just in time for the 2009 holiday season comes a release that is sure to grab the attention of heavy metal fans worldwide, as legendary singer Rob Halford debuts his first holiday CD Halford III Winter Songs on his new label Metal God Records distributed globally by ADA Global / Warner Music Group, Fontana / Universal Music Group, Conveyor / Universal Music Canada and Sony Music Japan.

Halford III Winter Songs is Rob's first solo release in more than seven years, and includes a collection of new Halford-penned tracks plus traditional holiday favorites presented with original arrangements by HALFORD (Rob Halford Vocals, Roy Z., Producer / Guitarist, Metal Mike Chlasciak Guitars, Mike Davis Bass and Bobby Jarzombek Drums).

Written, arranged and recorded during 2008 and 2009 Halford III Winter Songs celebrates one of the most exciting holiday periods of the year. The first new Halford single: 'Get Into The Spirit' debuts at radio and September 29th 2009.

Halford III Winter Songs debuts new Halford tracks: 'Get Into The Spirit,' 'When Christmas Comes For Everyone,' 'Light Of The World,' 'What Child Is This', 'Oh Holy Night,' 'Come All Ye Faithful' and more.
