Judas Priest Empowered By Epitaph Tour

(Classic Rock) Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford admits saying goodbye to the band's crew at the end of their final world tour was an emotional experience.

But he says the veteran outfit feel "empowered" now the Epitaph trek is over and having seen the live DVD of the same name, he's proud of what they achieved.

Priest announced in 2011 that KK Downing had retired from the band and their trip round the world would be their last large-scale escapade. They're working on a new album with Downing's replacement, Richie Faulkner.

Halford tells the Huffington Post: "It's a bit like lying on the heavy metal psychiatric couch. It's very cathartic. A lot of the emotions don't really come to the surface until you say goodbye to your road crew and everybody goes back to their respective homes. I think that's how we all felt.

"More than anything, it was a very evocative and stimulating sense of realisation. It was very empowering it was all good things. Nothing on the down side came through." more on this story
