MESSAGE FROM K.K. DOWNING:

HELLO METAL FANS ALL OVER THE WORLD -

Well I've finally done it....dragged myself away from the axe to communicate with loyal PRIEST fans everywhere just to let you have a quick update on what's happening with the PRIEST MACHINE.

Glenn, Ripper, Scott, Ian and myself have been having the most awesome time banging our metalheads in every direction possible, putting together the next edition to the PRIEST catalogue. The power in the new material is the most devastating yet, and we are confident that it will bring the smile of satisfaction to everyone's face on first listen.

The millennium is upon us and I can't help feeling truly excited about kick starting it with this new PRIEST ALBUM and following it up with a WORLD TOUR. As you all know PRIEST get the greatest enjoyment when delivering the goods so we want to see each and every one of you there in 2000 with banners held high and fists in the air !!!!

So until then ......
Don't forget....
ROCK HARD AND RIDE FREE

Your loyal
Metallurgist
K.K.

We'd like to apologise to all our fans out there - we know you're having to wait a long time for our next album and we realise some of you must be almost as frustrated as we are waiting for it to be finished! We've listened to and let everyone have their say on our noticeboard but it has been even more frustrating for us because we haven't been able to progress until we'd sorted out our US record company situation. Everything has now been resolved at long last and we will be announcing very soon which label we have signed to.

We are now flat out in the studio working on the new album.

Soon we will have some sound bites for you and more information regarding titles and we look forward to your comments - the down side is you've had to wait a long time for this album but the up side is we've had plenty of time to write and you won't have to wait so long for the next one!

So put your trust in us - rest assured the delay has been out of our control and unavoidable - it's not because we don't care - please be patient - we promise you won't be disappointed - the best things are worth waiting for!!

KEEP THE FAITH!!

RIPPER, GLENN, K.K. IAN & SCOTT

We would like to point out that the film METAL GOD is nothing at all to do with us - the production company bought the rights to an interview we did from a newspaper - and we are not involved in it - we have no control over what the film is about - even though they are taking their basic story from the interview they can embellish it in any way they want.

RIPPER, GLENN,K.K. IAN & SCOTT
