Judas Priest Says New Album Is A Return To Form
Their 2006 concept release Nostradamus saw them stepping away from their trademark sound - but Halford says it was essential to do that in order to be able to make what will be their 17th studio outing.
Halford says, "We realised the record really had to be strong, full of energy. The tracks are relentless - the energy you feel off Redeemer Of Souls is replicated time and time again.
"If you look at bands of longevity like Priest, you see the trail of music we've left. I don't think we could have made as great a record as Redeemer if we didn't have Nostradamus as a reference point.
"Everything has its place and has its moments, and we've always fed off these different areas we've gone into with our metal. So thanks to Nostradamus we've got Redeemer Of Souls." more on this story
