Praise for “Angel Of Retribution”

“One of the most important, influential and imitated bands ever…this might just be the best album Judas Priest have ever made” - 5/5 Kerrang

“Metal par excellence” – The Sun

“A stroke of genius…”Angel Of Retribution” makes the world seem a far finer place.” – Metal Hammer

“There would be no heavy metal without Judas Priest” – Scott “Not” Ian (Anthrax)

The godfathers of Heavy Metal are set to release the second single from their hugely acclaimed album “Angel of Retribution”.

The “Angel of Retribution” album saw the reforming of the definitive Judas Priest line-up after a more than 14 year break. The album sees the seminal band back to their very best – the classic line-up of Rob Halford (vocals), Glenn Tipton (guitar), K.K. Downing (guitar), Ian Hill (bass) and Scott Travis (drums). With sales of over half a million copies worldwide and counting, “Angel Of Retribution” is an album to sit alongside classics such as “Stained Class”, “British Steel” and “Screaming For Vengeance”.

“Worth Fighting For” sees the legendary twin guitar work of Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing perfectly complimenting a trademark Rob Halford vocal. The single is classic mid tempo Priest – as vital and influential as the band has ever been.

A vital part of rock history, Judas Priest have spent thirty years writing classic songs and putting on spectacular live shows. During this period the band has sold in excess of 30 million albums. “Angel of Retribution” is the latest chapter in a hugely impressive legacy and has seen the band delighting old and winning a whole army of new fans alike.

Judas Priest are currently in the midst of a world tour across Europe, Japan and the USA.

“Worth Fighting For” is released through Sony on the 16th May 2005. “Angel Of Retribution” is out now…
