UK metal legends Judas Priest have a lot to celebrate as they have earned the highest album chart debut of their career in the U.S. and are on track to score their biggest UK chart debut in 34 years.

The band released their new album, "Redeemer Of Souls," in the U.S. last week and the new title sold 33,000 copies during the first week of release, securing the band their very first Billboard 200 Top 10 hit when the album landed at No. 6, according to hennemusic.

Meanwhile, in their native UK, "Redeemer Of Souls," is currently at No. 8 in the midweek UK Official Album Chart, according to Classic Rock. If the sales hold steady, the band is poised to score their highest UK chart debut since 1980's landmark "British Steel" album debuted at No. 4.
