British heavy metal legends Judas Priest have entered the official UK Top 20 with new album, Redeemer Of Souls.
Their 17th studio album currently sits at No.12 in the chart, their third best placing of their entire career. Only their 1980 classic album British Steel and it’s follow up Screaming For Vengeance have placed higher.
Speculation was rife that Priest might split up following departure of guitarist KK Downing in 2011, but speaking in interview on Nikki Sixx’s Sixx Sense radio show, frontman Rob Halford said Redeemer… wouldn’t be the band’s last LP: “No. Absolutely not,” he replied when asked.
He also revealed that Redeemer Of Souls’ title track is his current favourite, explaining: “It’s very precise, articulate song and it carries all the classic vibe of Judas Priest.”
