Judas Priest Fans Got Another Thing Or Two Coming

Legacy Recordings have announced the release of two new compilations from metal legends Judas Priest. A boxset and a single disc greatest hits with a twist. They sent out these details:

On October 18th, fans will have 20 discs of Priest to sink their teeth into, when 'Single Cuts' arrives. The box set presents all of the group's UK 7" and 12" A and B sides from 1977 through 1992 (a total of 51 tracks), and each single will be featured as a vinyl-replica disc, and housed in a wallet featuring the original artwork. Additionally, the set will feature track-by-track notes by Kerrang! founder Geoff Barton, as well as rarely seen photos.

And for those metal-heads who are looking for a stellar single disc of Priest classics, 'The Chosen Few' will certainly fit the bill. Released a week earlier than 'Single Cuts,' 'The Chosen Few' is comprised of 17 Priest classics, chosen by some of the biggest names of the hard rock/heavy metal community (including Ozzy Osbourne, James Hetfield, Slash, and Alice Cooper, among countless others).

The result is a release that manages to include the obvious choices ("Breaking the Law," "Living After Midnight," "You've Got Another Thing Coming," etc.) with the less-than-obvious, but just as rocking ("Dissident Aggressor," "Rapid Fire," "Turbo Lover," etc.).

And last but not least, U.S. fans will soon be able to experience these Priest classics one last time on a nearby concert stage, as the group will be launching their Epitaph Tour on October 12th, in San Antonio, TX.

As Priest's vocalist, Rob Halford, recently told Rolling Stone about the upcoming dates, "We're pulling out all the stops. We've built a brand new stage set, we've got all the effects that people love us for the lasers, the fire, the bombs, the smoke, new costumes, and the bike. It's just a full-on metal extravaganza."
