One of the worlds most influential metal bands, Judas Priest are back with their eighteenth studio album, ‘Firepower’.
Set for release on Friday 9th March 2018 via Sony Music Australia – this, the band’s eighteenth studio album is fourteen tracks of pure and highly inspired metal.
For the first time in years, Priest has reunited with veteran producer Tom Allom (the man behind the board for all of the band’s releases from 1979-1988, including such iconic albums as ‘Unleashed in the East,’ ‘British Steel,’ ‘Screaming for Vengeance’ and 'Defenders of the Faith') and also teamed with Grammy Award-winning producer Andy Sneap to produce an album of energy and aggression while maintaining that classic Priest sound.
It has been almost four years since the band’s last offering, ‘Redeemer of Souls’ was released and three years since the band lit up Australian stages on the Soundwave Festival circuit. Now in 2018 with the new album and upcoming world tour ready to kick everyone’s arses, it’s a foregone conclusion that we will see the Metal Gods back down under in the very near future.
The album’s first single, Lightning Strike is available now. Watch the video here:
