There are few bands that have managed to scale the heights that Judas Priest have in the world of heavy sound. Their presence and influence remains at an all-time high for thousands of heavy metal fans. Judas Priest, the true masters of heavy metal, have a deep influence on several generations of musicians and metal heads throughout the world. Their career, spanning almost 40 years, is marked by several anthems and fundamental albums, with sales of over 40 million copies, a 2010 Grammy Award for "Best Metal Performance", and also some show-stopping sets at the world’s biggest festivals: this is only a short list of Judas Priest’s achievements.
After a ‘feeling out’ period, a quartet of albums separated Judas Priest from the rest of the hard rock pack, Priest also became a global arena headliner at some of the biggest festivals including the first-ever ‘Monsters of Rock’ festival at Donington Park (1980) in the United Kingdom, the US Festival (1983) in the United States and Live Aid (1985) in the United States.
First bursting onto the scene with 1974’s ‘Rocka Rolla’ Judas Priest are one of the most successful heavy metal bands. They are responsible for some all-time great albums – 1980’s 'British Steel', 1982’s 'Screaming for Vengeance', 1984’s ‘Defenders of the Faith’ and 1990’s 'Painkiller'. These titles spawned countless enduring metal anthems including ‘Breaking the Law’, ‘Living After Midnight’, ‘Heading Out to the Highway’ and ‘You’ve Got Another Thing Coming’.
Judas Priest released ‘Redeemer of Souls’ in 2014 – the 17th studio album in their career. It debuted on the Billboard 200 at #6 – the highest US album chart placing on the band’s entire career. It is released in Bulgaria by Virginia Records/ Sony Music and provides an amount of classic heavy metal by Judas Priest. „Raising the bar is consistent for us and ‘Redeemer’ hits the ground running – says Rob Halford – We feel ‘Redeemer of Souls’ reinforces our passion for what we believe in from the Judas Priest style heavy metal. Classic combination of all statements we love to create with raging guitar riffs and solos, thundering drums, thick grooves and vocals tearing it all up“.
‘Redeemer of Souls’ hits the Top 10 on charts throughout the world and has undoubtedly reinvigorated Priest, that is why the emblematic Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, Richie Faulkner, Ian Hill and the drummer Scott Travis kicked off on a new tour in October 2014, which continues in 2015. On June 30th at the ‘Arena Armeec Sofia’ thousands of fans will have the chance to enjoy songs from the new album, as well as their greates hits!
