Nearly twenty is still in the formative years, aka  young and impressionable. We are quite close in age and allthough I didn`t get into the Priest until British Steel, I also was still familiar with them. Once I got a listen to Unleashed, it was all over for me!!!!

Rob Zombie Kicks Off New Tour

The Pulse of Radio reports: Rob Zombie kicks off his first North American tour in two years on Thursday (October 29) in Phoenix, Arizona, and he said on a conference call with reporters earlier this week that fans can expect surprises in both the set list and stage production. "We have a lot of new things this time, you know," he said. "We didn't want to go out and just do the same old show, so we've dug deep and we've kind of tried to mix it up. You know, there's always the obvious songs that you have to play for people that they want to hear, but we're actually going back and we're grabbing some songs that I've actually never played live ever. And as far as the stage show, there's been some pretty incredible advancements in digital technology, so we have a pretty high-tech show going on. It's pretty awesome."

Meanwhile, it was announced late Wednesday (October 28) that Zombie has left Geffen Records, his label home for 18 years, and signed a new deal with Roadrunner Records' Loud & Proud imprint. The label will release his new album, "Hellbilly Deluxe 2", in early 2010.

Zombie sold more than 15 million records on Geffen as a solo artist and with WHITE ZOMBIE. He said in a statement, "It certainly wasn't an easy decision to make after all this time, but it had to be done. I love this new record and wanted to surround myself with an excited new group of people who can reignite my enthusiasm for working within a hard rock record label. Roadrunner seems to be the perfect place."

Zombie added that he will play songs from "Hellbilly Deluxe 2" on the tour, although the record's release has been pushed back. Geffen was initially supposed to issue the CD on November 17. It was abruptly yanked from that date, with sources saying that Zombie was at odds with his longtime label.

The singer also said he "toyed with" the idea of bringing out the original "Hellbilly Deluxe" stage set from 1998, but decided in favor of an updated version.

Zombie performed on the second day of the Loud Park festival, which was held October 17-18 at Makuhari Messe, a convention center in Japan located in the western region of Chiba Prefecture, close to Tokyo. Photos of the performance can be viewed below.

If he mentioned us we'd be swarmed with internet forum trolls and new retards wondering who Judas Priest are and why Nostradamus is such a shit album.

Just be glad that Unleashed isn't like Alive!. Alive is completely done in the studio.

Unleashed in the East is live, with Rob's vocals completely overdubbed in ONE take. So essentially is like 2 shows put together.

Very well put, GD. Although I was nearing twenty when Unleashed came out, I recall it as being THE most incredible "live" album I had ever heard and, although we now know it was not entirely "live", I still regard it as such. Rob's voice on that album was absolutely astonishing and I was hooked, even though I had heard their music for a couple years by that time and had been covering them in a band.  The new live album really does little for me. I love the music and the band and all but I just cannot get into it as much as most fans seem to and I am sure that has a lot to do with Unleashed.

On a separate note, my congratulations to our own jackylone for his success and notoriety through the Nostra album! Well done, even though I am sure he did not plan for all this to happen. What a wonderful turn of events for one of our own. My only disappointment in all of it is that he did not take the opportunity to mention our Board and family a bit. Sure would have been great for this site. Ah well, not a big deal really. As I mentioned, I know he did not do it for all of this attention. VERY well done, my friend!

JD and Freeze
I`d like to add my two cents in here about the Live albums. Unleashed in the East is it for me as well. Nothing has ever compared  since. I think that the reason why is we were exposed to it during our most formative years as fans. Now , we are experienced listeners and pick out what we don`t particularly like or wished it had been done differently.

Is This Our Jackyle One?

It's official! On October 28, 2009 at 1:48 a.m. (EST), Cleveland, Ohio JUDAS PRIEST fan Jim Bartek finished listening to PRIEST's "Nostradamus" from start to finish for the 500th straight day!

His unique and unusual accomplishment has been covered in media outlets all around the world, including the New York Times, Rolling Stone magazine, the Associated Press, the Howard Stern radio network, major commercial FM rock radio stations and morning shows across the country, to name just a few. Bartek also had a chance to meet all of the members of JUDAS PRIEST on July 14, 2009 during their summer tour stop in Cleveland.

Bartek plans to finally end the streak, much to the relief of his friends and family, sometime in November. A date will soon be set where friends, followers, supporters and PRIEST fans will gather for a party at a local drinking establishment in Cleveland with Bartek to share one final listen together.

Bartek shares his own personal thoughts and prophecies on the "Nostradamus" album and his listening streak:

"The time has come to put to rest one of the greatest, most exciting, and craziest times of my life. My listening streak of 'Nostradamus' will soon come to an end.

"October 28th marks the 500th consecutive day of at least one listen of JUDAS PRIEST's epic 'Nostradamus' since its release in 2008.

"I would never in my life have thought anything like this could have ever happened, or could I have ever imagined doing something like this to begin with. It's hard to believe it has been nearly a year and a half already. The time has flown by.

"'Nostradamus' will go down as my favorite album of all time. I feel it is a masterful piece of work, with a story line that I thought was very easy to follow and understand. PRIEST gave an excellent overview of Nostradamus' life in a mere hour and 45 minutes. The music and the vocals, while not straight-on metal as standard PRIEST, still give an amazing metal performance into a very interesting subject.

"The 'streak', as most people call it, has been exciting and the rewards have been plentiful.

"I never planned to do anything like this. It just developed and took on a life of its own after several early on air mentions by Bill Peters during his WJCU 'Metal On Metal' radio program. I listen to his show religiously every Friday night. He was taking a poll on what his listeners thought of the new album and I was one of the only ones who responded favorably out of the hundreds of listeners who participated. I told him I even liked it so much that I was listening to it every day in its entirety since the release date, which was a week earlier at the time. I would check in with him every week and he would always ask if the streak was still going. After just over a month, he interviewed me live on the radio to give his listeners my personal review on the album and talk about the streak. I then checked in every couple of weeks to give live updates. By this time, more people were starting to come around and warm up to the album and were intently following my streak. The national media picked up on the story and the rest is history.

"All of the interviews, the news stories and people talking about it when I am out and about at local metal shows have just been overwhelming. The singer from the Metal Blade band RAVAGE came up to me after their Cleveland show and said, 'Hey, you're the 'Nostradamus' guy. It's an honor to meet you and have you see our show. We have all been following your streak in Boston.' I was even spotted and asked about it recently at a Cleveland Browns football game!

"I never would have thought in a million years this would have been such a big thing. It is amazing all the worldwide attention it has generated.

"Obviously the most exciting reward came when JUDAS PRIEST and their management took notice and invited me backstage before their show in July to meet and discuss 'Nostradamus' with them. This was the most exciting and memorable night of my life. A chance to meet my all-time favorite band was something I will never forget.

"It is going to feel weird not hearing the record every day since it has been a part of my life for all this time. I can just see my dog (Clarence) looking at me the first few days without a listen wanting to know where his 'Nostradamus' is. I think he has enjoyed the streak as much as I have!

"It has been an experience I will treasure. It has also been an experience that has been the craziest time of my life!

"I have to thank my friends and family, and all the people in the metal community for their support through this. The 'Metal On Metal' radio show, the 'Classic Metal Show', all the radio stations, newspapers, magazines and hundreds of internet sites that wrote about it. This truly has been an experience I will never forget.Last but not least, I would like to thank the metal gods themselves, JUDAS PRIEST, for releasing an album that made a huge impact on my life.

"Rob (Halford) told me to keep the streak going. You never know, I may change my mind and just cancel that party! Even if it does actually come to an end, it does not mean the 'Nostradamus' album will now be shelved. I at least see a couple of listens a week in my future as I still LOVE the record!"

What a strage interview from RJD Joe!!! Excellent!!!  And Freeze....I agree with you as I have never been able to get "into" a live album after "Unleashed In The East" no matter how much they doctored it up in the studio...Unleashed In The East is still unbeatable.  And jimmyjames...there are some "fan-boys" here like "TASNAM1" who says "every song and every album" by JP is equally excellent,now that is a fuckin "fan-boy".He has no opinions of Judas Priest songs because its all the same to him....Painkiller and Parental Guidence are equally the same to him after all its just Judas Priest! LOL! What a fuckin "JOKE".
I am sick of fans like this...if Judas Priest put out a fucking disco album TASNAM1 would love it.If they put out a rap album,TASNAM1 would love it. If they put out a Britny Spears album with Britny on vocals with Rob...TASNAM1 would "love it" because to TASNAM1 ...."its all the same". So I agree with jimmyjames that there is some fanboyism going on here.And it makes me sick as well!!!

Dio Interview

Dio’s website calls him “the grand wizard of classic rock”. He’s been recording since 1958, and first achieved recognition with his band Elf, who supported Deep Purple in 1972. He then joined Rainbow, and sang with Black Sabbath after Ozzy Osbourne was kicked out.

In 1983 he released his first solo album, Holy Diver, the title track of which was recently covered by the metalcore band Killswitch Engage. He currently fronts Heaven And Hell, a return to the Black Sabbath line-up he was part of.

Do you collect anything weird?
Frogs. I was in Cornwall in 1975 and discovered a little shop, and inside there was a frog playing guitar, and I just couldn’t help myself. I started to collect frogs, and I have a lot of people who care about me and give them to me. I have a frog with a large phallic member with a teacup on it.
Do you believe in ghosts?
When I was in Rainbow, we were at a place called the Château, north of Paris. There wasn’t a lot to do other than record, so one day we had a séance. We contacted this woman named Sarah who kept saying nothing but, “Kill Thomas, kill Thomas, kill Thomas”. This went on for a week.

So we asked Sarah some questions, and found out Thomas was her son, who she wanted us to kill because he killed her, in childbirth. We asked if we could talk to someone else and the glass started to go everywhere. It said: “I am Baal. I create chaos. You will never finish this project.” It got a lot more involved than that. That’s the tip of the iceberg.
What’s the closest you’ve come to death?
An automobile accident in the early days of Elf. Our driver was killed, as well as my best friend and lead guitar player. I went through the windscreen and then back, ripped a part of my scalp off, broke a leg and broke an arm.

One of the guitar players in the back hit his face on the engine and had 16 stitches near his eye, and one almost had his legs amputated… it just went on and on. Just a horrible experience.

Do you have any recurring dreams?
I have nightmares on the road – I guess that’s just the stress of being in different places and having a different diet. The worst one was waking up in a bus and seeing all the people who’ve died before me and someone saying: “Don’t worry, you’ll be with us soon.”

Have you ever had a crush on someone that most people would think was gross?
Sophia Loren’s lower lip. I always just thought she had a magnificent lower lip.

What does your orgasm face look like?
I don’t know… I don’t think I’ve ever really looked! Probably white and sticky.

Have you ever seen any quirky genitalia?
I had a guitar player who had a crooked cock. It was hard to miss; I guess he was proud of it. Sometimes we had to pee together and you know, you check it out.

I thought you weren’t meant to!
Yeah, you can sneak a peek! You can look and go, “Holy, look at the size…” and then tell your friends, “Some guy was in the toilet with a knob like a bell!” But you don’t give it a stare, for sure.

What’s the oddest thing you’ve eaten?
I don’t eat vegetables, because I can’t stand the sliminess – like green beans. Or anything that looks like it’s got something still growing inside it. I do eat potatoes, they’re like a quasi-vegetable; and I’ll eat tomatoes as long as they’re crushed up in a sauce. Other than that, I only eat meat. So, kangaroo.

What’s the strangest thing a fan’s ever sent to you?
I can name almost all the frogs. The strangest things are books of the dead – but I figure that’d be expected.

What’s the strangest thing in your house?
Aside from myself? Sometimes you collect so many things they start cohabitating. I’m looking at a frog, and next to the frog is a wolf, and then there’s another frog who’s playing the saxophone, and next to him is a gargoyle on a candlestick, and next to him is Henry VIII. And I have some really beautiful crosses.

What’s the biggest animal you’ve killed?
A squirrel, accidentally. I love animals. I’ve always had dogs and cats. They put things in perspective: I see how wonderfully made they are and how flawed we are.
And now, the classic Bizarre challenge: choose between coprophilia, necrophilia and bestiality and explain your decision.
If I had to choose, bestiality. I certainly don’t want to screw any dead people and I don’t want to eat shit; at least there’s some kind of sexualness going on in the other one that I can get a live perspective on, anyway.
Which animal?
A spider. A black widow, of course!
What would go through your head when it started to eat you after sex?
“Ouch” is the first thing I’d say, and “stop” would be next, and “Oh my God” – you know, the usual epithets hurled out when these things happen, when you get eaten by a spider.
Do you think the sex would be good?
Probably not.

[Deep Freeze] Tuesday, October 27, 2009 7:36:04 AM 
While I may not necessarily agree with all you have said or how, I can certainly understand much of what you say and your position. Certainly there has been enough bashing of Hetfield/Lars here for some of their work to fill a large septic tank. I can see what you mean about Rob and how there are so many that believe he simply defecates gold but I must be honest; I am OK with the Christmas stuff. Not because it is "genius" or "innovative", because it is not, but more because I am a fan and I like his voice. I enjoy listening to him in almost everything he does. Almost.

I also do not rave about Touch of Evil because, quite frankly, I have not been thrilled with a "live" Priest album since Unleashed. I think that speaks volumes given what we know about how it was actually recorded. I have simply not been very motivated by anything live that the guys have done since. As for Nostra, well AGAIN it is what it is. I do not think it is a "masterpiece" (clearly it is no Tommy) and it is not a dismal faliure. It is just another album to me. They took a shot at a concept album as so many great names have done before. No big news and surely nothing to fear. If they so choose, they can come back with another "hard" album, I'm sure.

To me, it is much ado about nothing. I do not see that  the "end is near". Priest do whatever they want and, most of the time, I like it. If that is being a "fanboy" then so be it. Railing on and on will obviously not matter much to the five guys that actually record this stuff.

People can label it what they want and craft it into just about anything but they are christian christmas hymns and thats not the reason why I don't like it ironically,I don't like it because it doesn't strike me as quality music,yet I agree that Rob has done something very well and inovative,its just not my cup of tea just like Nostradamus is not,I wish it were cause its been 5 long years since I've heard an album that I like,the last being 2005 Angel Of Retribution! I am envious and happy that everyone likes the new christmas album though.

I think if the God wants to do a metal Christmas album for experimentation that is just fine by me. Call me a "fangirl" I'm going to buy it and probably love it! Rob is no fool, he knows the world isn't going to beat the cd store doors down to buy this, but it's his project and if he wants to do it, that's perfectly fine with many of his fans. We support those we admire for being risk takers and not always conforming to the mainstream media bullshit. Thank You Mr. Halford!!!

[Becks] Monday, October 26, 2009 8:29:25 PM 
Yeah, that. I agree with Guido. And for the record, James Hetfield has been getting slammed for YEARS for 'selling out', as some people call it. Mainly cos Metallica churns out music for the hell of it and to make money. Rob has stated clearly in interviews that he has always wanted to do this album, and that Christmas is special to him - no less because even growing up in post WWII England, where rationing to an extent was still in effect, his parents still tried to make the time special for their kids.
I have no qualms with people saying, 'hey it's not my thing I don't like what I've heard', but I get sick of the 'he's lost his mind, this is garbage, senile old fool' really negative stuff - if you don't like it, fine, but stop whinging about it! It's very counter productive and just pointless.

Call ME a "fanboy" but I drove home today listening to Touch of Evil thinking...damn good! I was never a big fan of Hellrider but hell if he didn't sing that well. Sure, I'll be the first to admit that Painkiller should have been dumped from that recording (he has done it better MANY times after that recording) but I honestly like the others.

Halford, the band, is not Priest. I'll save further comments to when I have heard the album.

Well if James Hetfield decided to bring out an album of heavy metal christmas carols, I know for a fact that the knives would be out on this site. Because it's Rob Halford it's an artist expressing himself. I mean come on, We Three Kings? Metallica have been smashed and bashed on this site by many members, including myself, for some of the rubbish they've brought out in the last 20 years and deservedly so, they've turned into assholes and their albums are borderline ridiculous in some cases ( St. Anger ). But they've never stooped to this. If they made a christmas cd everybody would be saying that they'd sold out, lost the plot, disappeared up their own asses etc. Some of the hero worship that goes on on this site is really irritating. Priest geeks who are in no way objective to the stuff the band is bringing out. Rob Halford could probably record himself after a serious bout of food poisoning and release a cd of it and there would be members of this site who would rave about it. To me the Winter Songs album is an embarrassment, and the second sub standard product Halford has been associated with this year. The first being the shockingly bad Touch Of Evil Live. Again if it was James Hetfield "trying something different" people would be saying he'd lost his mind. Why not Rob Halford?

By the way Joe wasn't talking about you when i mentioned Priest geeks.

Nothing they do is serious.

Hey Joe,I'm sure you accidentally quoted the wrong person as you meant to quote "jimmyjames",Painkiller87 wasn't the one who said that,no worrries.
I can understand why and have come to tearms with what Rob is doing for the Winter Songs idea and all,I think its rather "tame" but I can understand it.
I just can't understand why he used the Halford album to do it,he should of saved it for a real heavy metal

Dio to Play New Song On European Tour

Legendary heavy metal vocalist Ronnie James Dio (HEAVEN & HELL, BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW, DIO) has revealed to Classic Rock magazine that DIO will play a new song on the band's upcoming European tour, which kicks off next month.

"It's called 'Electra', which will be released as a limited-edition single, although I'm not sure as yet just how we intend to put it out," he said.

"However, it was important to me that DIO didn't just come over on the back of the old material, but that we had something fresh to offer.:

The band — also featuring guitarist Doug Aldrich, bassist Rudy Sarzo, drummer Simon Wright and keyboard player Scott Warren — will perform mostly material from its own catalog this time around, with nothing at all included from Dio's time with BLACK SABBATH.

"We'll probably do a coupe of things from RAINBOW, but there's no point in doing anything by SABBATH. I've been doing that with HEAVEN & HELL. There are a lot of people out there who are fans of DIO the band, rather than of me as the former singer with RAINBOW and BLACK SABBATH, and for them we'll do some material we've not done for a long time from the DIO era."

According to the singer, DIO is planning on recording two new albums next year. "I want to finish the story started with the 'Magica' album [released in 2000]," he said. "There are two parts left, and we'll do those together. At moment, though, I'm not sure when we'll be recording. Part of the reason for this is that there's more happening with HEAVEN & HELL."

Senile old fool? Since when is a musician doing what he wants to musically being senile, foolish, or in any stupid?

Its called having variety and trying something different. You try writing the same style of songs for years and see if you don't want something different.

Have you even listened to the first two songs? There pretty fucking heavy. The only difference is its Christmas themed lyrically.

There's also a free new song from Winter Songs on Rob's music site. Its called Christmas for Everyone. Its definitly not metal, a christmas song with a rock edge.

I just don't think that Rob has had the time to sit down with the guys and write a new Halford album. It sounded like he had a hard time getting in to the studio to just do the vocals on the Winter Songs album. I really hope we get another monster of an album out of the Halford band! I think maybe Rob just didn't want us to forget about Halford, wanted to give us something new and this was a project he has always wanted to do and would never do with Priest.
[J.D. DIAMOND] Thursday, October 22, 2009 4:07:59 PM 

I agree with you Guido,I agree with jimmyjames on the Winter Songs idea,but I can never bring myself to say Halford is a senile old fool? I think he may have lost his mind a little,but senile old fool? hummmmm  And really the Winter Songs album is not what chaps my hyde,its that he chose to do it and use up an album/year for the "Halford band".  I was hoping for another "Crucible" of heavy metal!! Not christmas songs....why couldn't he of just created this with yet another name....just "Rob Halford's Winter Songs" instead of the 3rd album by "Halford"?? Thats what pisses me off I wanted another Crucible!! lol!

ROB HALFORD Is Thinking About Recording Another Holiday Album Next Year - Oct. 22, 2009
Robert Gray of recently conducted an interview with JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford. A few excerpts from the chat follow below. What prompted you to record a Christmas album in "Halford III: Winter Songs"?

Halford: Well, I'd never done it before, so that was the main reason. Where I am in my metal life, I just look for things that interest me, and try to find music that I haven't explored previously — "Winter Songs" was a chance to do that. It's that time of the year as well, being a Brit, even though this record is for everybody around the world, and for all different faiths and everything. We all like that time around December; it means a lot to a lot of people, and it certainly means a lot to me. I was able to find time to record "Winter Songs", and there you go. The album's all ready, and about to launch.

Have you heard the first two tracks, Robert? "Get Into the Spirit" and "We Three Kings", yeah.

Halford: "Winter Songs" is a little bit more than that, but with the first couple of tracks, I just wanted to send out a signal to metalheads that it is a record for metal fans more than anything in the world. The album goes off into some really cool, different places musically, and is a really interesting record to listen to. Was "Winter Songs" in the works for quite some time?

Halford: No, not really. In "Winter Songs"' liner notes, it says that the album was put together over 2008 and 2009, but that doesn't mean it was a two-year project. The record was just bits and pieces like a jigsaw puzzle coming together. I've been out on the road with PRIEST for almost the last two years, so it was a case of finding time for me to record my vocals. Also, the rest of the guys in the HALFORD band had to find time in their busy schedules as well, and more importantly, we just had to find the right material. I wasn't going to record "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" (laughs) — that's already been done to death. I just wanted to find songs that were not overly popular, songs that could take the right kind of treatment in the arrangements. Trying to get the right things together was just a long process, but in the end, "Winter Songs" is seven songs that have been rearranged and produced by Roy Z and myself, and then three original tracks that we've put together. I've been listening to "Winter Songs" off and on since it was finished about a month ago, and I try to listen to it with an open mind, even though it's a music project that I'm close to. I think "Winter Songs" is great, a really, really nice record — if nice is the right word. The album is just for the experience of this time of year, and is like everything you do. When people hear the music, they'll make their decision on whether they're going to like it or not, but I feel good about it. I feel really good about it. Do you feel that people can listen to "Winter Songs" all year round then? Although the two songs I heard, "Get Into the Spirit" and "We Three Kings", are Christmas songs, you can listen to them whenever really, and they still sound really good.

Halford: Yeah. That's a cool... Yeah, why not? Some of "Winter Songs"' tracks specifically use the Christmas time reference, but there are others that don't have that. On its musical merits, there are some songs that you could enjoy at any time you wanted to enjoy them. Having said that, my specific intention was to make a record that you could enjoy at that time of the year, and enjoy year after year. That comes from my background, when you think about it. I don't write music that's disposable, or has a short shelf life so to speak. I write music that you can enjoy, and take with you wherever you go, depending on whatever mood you're in. Having said that, "Winter Songs" is a holiday release. Is there a reason why you opted to cover lesser known tracks, as opposed to opting to cover more obvious tracks? Like, I don't know, "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" or "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" and all those type of well-known Christmas songs?

Halford: Yeah. Those songs are fun, and they're lightweight. They create a certain kind of emotion, but I wanted "Winter Songs" to just be a little bit deeper. There's a couple of cool tracks on the album, like "When Christmas Comes for Everyone". I was totally thinking of the U.K. time. There's a very exclusive British vibe that you get around Christmas, because that's what I am. I'm a Brit, and I carry that in my blood. To me, that song is a very British feeling, sounding track. Another one, called "I Don't Care If It's Christmas Night", was kind of inspired by the Chuck Berry type of experience, and the way that Chuck has written his music over the years. I just went into that frame of mind. That song tells the story of how you're struggling to get home in time to be with the family at Christmas, and you can't cos the weather's fucking shit. You get stuck in traffic, and all that kind of thing. I think that's another dilemma we all have - last minute Christmas shopping (laughs). It drives you mental. But how can I put that into a song? That's the message of that track, but some of the other material is quite big; big guitars, big drums, and big choral voices. All the other material has some very, very strong moments musically. Were there any songs recorded for "Winter Songs", but left off the final track listing?

Halford: No. In fact, we were listening to the nine completed tracks, and I said to Roy, "We need another track. I don't like this number nine. It just feels wonky to me. I think we need another track". Roy agreed, so I picked up a guitar, and went into the studio. Half an hour later, I came up with this song which turned out to be quite strong, actually. It's called "Light of the World". We then had our ten tracks, so there was nothing left over. It was all used up. I had such a great time, and so much fun recording "Winter Songs". There was no stress, and no pressure. I had such a really cool time recording the album that I'm already thinking of maybe recording another one next year. "Volume 2". If you search, there's a lot of material out there. What do you feel the future holds for the HALFORD band?

Halford: PRIEST will always be the band that leads me in my life, but I still have that streak of creativity that I need to find an outlet for. That's what the HALFORD band provides me with. I don't think PRIEST could've done this Christmas'y kind of record — it wouldn't have been right, because that isn't what PRIEST is about. My solo activities allow me to do that, and anything else that I might choose to do in the future. It has to be useful, Robert. I can't just go banging out songs that I can do with PRIEST — what's the point? I need to be able to find music and songs that need a solo touch to them. I still want to explore those possibilities. The great thing about music is you can get up any day of the week, and you can find a brand new way of expressing yourself as a musician. It's a never-ending journey in that respect, when you think about it. It's just as exciting for me now in PRIEST as it was when I first started in metal, and it's just as exciting for me now with the solo ideas that I've got swirling around me. I haven't lost that passion. I'm fifty-eight, but I still have that streak of creativity in me, and determination, to keep working into the metal future.

Metallica DVD - Francais Pour Une Nuit

's official web site has been updated with the following message:

"On July 7th of this year, we were honored to perform at Arenes de Nimes, the historic Roman amphitheatre in Nimes, France, easily one of the most spectacular venues in the world. We thought it would be a memorable night, so we asked our friends in France to bring along a film crew to document the festivities. The result is 'Francais Pour Une Nuit' (translation: 'French For One Night'), the DVD of the evening including the full show, interviews with us, and five videos shot by YOU, our buddies in the audience. All this and more will be available starting November 23, 2009!

"'Francais Pour Une Nuit' was extra special for us because not only was it filmed in France, but ALL aspects of the project are French as the show was filmed, recorded, and edited with French camera and recording crews, the artwork on the package and special box set (more on that in a minute!) were created by a French design team; even the credits are in French. The only non-French parts: the three Americans and one Dane on stage and the photos shot by Englishman Ross Halfin.

"The DVD will be available in retail stores in France only, at, or you may order online through the record company at There will be three formats available: Standard DVD in a digipack including a 16 page booklet, Blu-ray DVD, also in a digipack with the booklet, and the deluxe limited edition box set (it's actually a tin) that includes the DVD, a copy of 'Death Magnetic' on CD, a T-shirt, laminated pass, and five exclusive photos."

13 of the 18 songs the band performed at the Nimes concert aired on October 10 on the French TV channel Canal+ and can be viewed below.

According to the web site, which is described as "your FREE virtual backstage pass to every METALLICA show," METALLICA's setlist for the Nimes concert was as follows:

01. Blackened
02. Creeping Death
03. Fuel
04. Harvester Of Sorrow
05. Fade to Black
06. Broken, Beat And Scarred
07. Cyanide
08. Sad But True
09. One
10. All Nightmare Long
11. The Day That Never Comes
12. Master Of Puppets
13. Dyers Eve
14. Nothing Else Matters
15. Enter Sandman
- - - - - - - - - - - -
16. Stone Cold Crazy
17. Motorbreath
18. Seek and Destroy

METALLICA also documented its three shows in Mexico City for DVD, although that looks like it will be released in Latin America only.

METALLICA has added single-song downloads to the web site. Instead of buying only entire concerts, fans can pick whatever individual songs they want from any concert they choose from. Every song that the band has recorded in concert since 2004, covering a span of 269 shows, is available for 99 cents per MP3. Full shows are still $9.95 as MP3 files and $12.95 as higher-quality FLAC files.

Frontman James Hetfield told The Pulse of Radio about deciding to release individual songs, "Yeah, I think the song-per-song vs. album is kind of a long lost battle, I think. You know, people in the fast-food world we live in want what they want, and want it now, and when they're done with it, they're done with it. So yeah, it's about time, and I think it's the right move." was launched in March 2004 and makes downloads available for purchase of every show the band has played since then, often within hours of the gig's finale.

More than 300,000 downloads have been purchased at the site since its launch.

The "Vault" section of the site offers free downloads of shows recorded before 2004.

More shows will crop up at the site in upcoming weeks, since METALLICA just launched a new North American tour last month. The band has dates booked through mid-December.

But why would they? Also the bike I have seen befoe could have been another one, prototype perhaps, until they came up with the final version? Or just a second version.
Seeing how it was promoted thru this site, likely legit. But to a detail oriented rider such as myself, it has me asking  how legit!!

About queensryche... well I think people mut be more open-minded (if that's the way they say it in english). It is not fair to call it a failure before seeing something of that show, or hear something what they're going to perform.

And I believe it must be hard for artist to do every year the same kind of music, or at least boring. It doesn't have to be metal ALL the time... don't get me wrong I'm a true fan of metal, I love everything about this music... but some artists are not afraid to explore other styles. Ok, maybe cabaret is too far away from metal, but I don't think those guys really think about that, they must be interest only in giving a good show, so let's open our minds and see, before throwing rocks at it. Plus I believe Queensryche never was a 'static' band, you can always expect something different from those guys.

And about Goeff loosing it, well Yes obviuosly, he is 50.. People get old. Do you think Rob sings the same way than when he was 25?, or Ronnie James sings the same way either?.. Yes, they do a better job than Geoff (I'm not comparing them) but you cannot expect people to sing the same way forever. I just mention them, because they are my favourite vocalists .

Well it's just my opinion. Plus, maybe reading 'Goeff Tate', with the words 'lust' and 'naughty fun' was simply too much for me LOL

Interesting about the bike on E-bay, and it is sad that it`s only there for profit. But look at this my Priest family, find a picture of the bike from the tour then look at this closely, we haven`t lost that much at all. I`ll say no more. Edited at: Saturday, October 17, 2009 11:51:10 AM

Now the musical version of Mindcrime doesn't surprise me one bit since it was obvious to me that Geoff wants to be on Broadway based on that MindCrime 2 DVD. As far as Geoff losing it, YES he has actually. I just saw them in May, and his voice was horrible. Listen to any of the clips from the US tour and he sounds horrible in all of them. They even pulled Take Hold of The Flame from the setlist, probably because he can't sing it anymore. People complained about his voice in the first couple shows and they pulled the song.

I dunno, but this just sounds like a larger version of what goes down on Saturday nights at the Ruby Lounge (a Rock/pole-dancing club in Manchester). And I have to disagree that Geoff has lost it in recent years- their last album may not be classic but it was a solid effort, and their 2008 UK tour worked well with the onstage actors etc. It may not be 'traditionally' metal, but who says it has to be- this band covered Andrew Lloyd Webber (and did it well), and Operation Mindcrime is in the process of being made into a musical. After that, this isn't such a big step away.

This thing doesn't really surprise me at all, especially if you saw the MindCrime 2 DVD. Geoff has gone over the edge, period. Freakin' Go Go dancers and shit? Are you KIDDING me?

I know J.D., WTF indeed! I'm still shaking my head. I was also 13 when the EP came out and liked it too. After Chris DeGarmo left, they've just gone down hill.... Geoff has some serious desire to be on Broadway or something. A friend had the MindCrime 2 DVD, OMG..... Geoff buddy, stop trying to "act" because YOU SUCK! LOL! After I saw that, I was terrified that Priest might do something similar with Nostradamus. The first MindCrime tour was really good, but then they decided to dip back into that well and came up with CRAP! What's wrong with being METAL lately? Priest had better see what's going on and hit us with a HEEEEEAAAVVVVYYYY MEEEEEEEETTTTTTTTAAAAAAALLLLL album next!

Queensryche Cabaret



Ladies and Gentleman and “kids” of only adult ages, welcome to what promises to be the spectacle of all spectacles better known as the Queensryche Cabaret.

A fun-filled evening like no other full of freaks and shrieks.

What good is sitting alone in your room?

Come hear the music play.

Taste the wine and swing from a vine in a place that’s only eclipsed by the echo in your mind.

It’ll be Geoff Tate, Scott Rockenfield, Michael Wilton, Eddie Jackson and Parker Lundgren performing a show-of-shows with a bunch of their friends who have a tendency to only come out late at night.

The Queensryche Cabaret will be art, lust, dancing and naughty fun with the band performing their hits and never-heard-before selections accompanied by Go-Go dancers, burlesque dancers, drag queens, a juggler, ballet dancer, aerial artist, contortionist and much more.

Sit back and enjoy the music and theatrics or be a part of the stage show!

Audience members will have an opportunity to participate… but prior written consent will be required as it won’t be for the faint of heart.

It’ll be sights and sounds coming at you from all angles like never before!

See some evil, hear some evil, speak some evil and have some fun.

Be prepared… be very prepared.

Life is a Queensryche Cabaret, old chum, come to the Cabaret.

I just got hit by some very sad news about one of my other favorite bands.
    EVILE Bassist Dies At 32 - Oct. 6, 2009
Just a few days into the band's European tour with AMON AMARTH, bassist Mike Alexander of British thrashers EVILE was suddenly taken ill and rushed to hospital, but tragically passed away in Luleå, Sweden [on Monday, October 5]. He was 32 years old.

EVILE members Matt Drake, Ol Drake and Ben Carter have released the following statement:

"This is so hard to find the words to express fully how we feel. We can't believe or accept what's happened. One minute we're talking to our buddy, Mike, the next minute we can never speak to him again.

"There's so many things rushing through our heads that we want to say, do and feel. We half expect him to come round the corner and call us 'dickheads'. We can't get our heads around it.

"It upsets us so much that he was away from his family when this happened, although knowing Mike, we're at least glad he was on tour doing what he loves.

"We're lost for words. We all miss him so much already. He was such a headstrong, genuinely nice guy who loved music and his family. We've got so many brilliant memories with him.

"Our hearts go out to his daughter, family and friends at this tragic, difficult time.

"Mike is much loved and is sorely missed.

"Rest in peace, brother."

BrooklynRocks conducted an interview with Ol Drake and Mike Alexander on August 20, 2009 at the Earache Records offices in New York City. Watch the chat below.

EVILE's sophomore album, "Infected Nations", was released on September 21 in Europe and September 22 in the U.S. via Earache Records.

Its a fact, Metal Cures Cancer.

Margaret Priebe, the 85-year-old METALLICA fan who became a viral sensation after her story appeared in Thursday's St. Petersburg Times, was invited backstage for a meet-and-greet prior to the band's show last night (Saturday, October 3) at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, Florida. Each member of METALLICA spent a little time with her, sharing stories of her favorite album, "S&M". Guitarist Kirk Hammett also mentioned that his mother now has some competition! In addition, guitarist/vocalist James Hetfield dedicated the song "Nothing Else Matters" to Margaret at the sold-out concert, which was attended by more than 18,000 people.

Nine years ago, Margaret turned on the radio and discovered METALLICA's 1999 "S&M" album, recorded with the San Francisco Symphony, according to the St. Petersburg Times. She had never heard such a racket before — but she loved it. Last year, she endured a cancer battle with help from her trusty MP3 player, loaded up with METALLICA, JUDAS PRIEST, OZZY OSBOURNE. She's cancer-free now, but still cranks the tunes.

"I like METALLICA — there's nothing wrong with them," said Margaret. "People think I'm weird. But I'm sorry, I like it loud."

"Mom likes Lars [Ulrich, METALLICA's drummer]," said her son, Jim, 48, who builds Koi ponds and waterfalls. "She likes drummers."

"Lars is cute," said Margaret. "But I like 'em all."

For the St. Petersburg Times story, Margaret was asked if she'd like to meet METALLICA — Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo. She smiled and said "Oh sure," but added "I wouldn't know what to say! I'd be so nervous!"

ROB HALFORD: 'I Think We've All Got A Bit Of Metal God Inside Of Us'   Topic List   < Prev Topic  |  Next Topic >
Reply | Forward < Prev Message  |  Next Message >   
While it might seem like a difficult task to reinvent that fashion staple of
heavy metal music fans, the t-shirt, if anyone has the right credentials for the
task it’s Rob Halford, lead singer of legendary metal band Judas Priest.

Halford just launched Metal God, his signature brand of t-shirts that have all
the soft-worn appeal of a vintage concert t-shirt but with all-new original
graphics that he’s betting will appeal to die-hard metal fans and aspiring
rockers alike.

“The imagery is simply an extension of what I do with my music,†explained
Halford at a preview of the collection on Wednesday, Sept. 30, at a New York
hotel in the East Village, not far from dive bars where heavy metal music
aficionados like DJ Lady Starlight spin Judas Priest classics. “Metal Godâ€
refers to the nickname given to Halford by fans.

“Quite simply, Rob Halford invented heavy metal style,†said DJ Lady
Starlight, who writes a fashion and music blog chronicling the history of hard
rock and airs a heavy metal podcast, “Metal for Muthas,†on American Apparel
internet radio. “The biker and leather boy look Halford adopted for promoting
'Hell Bent For Leather' in 1978 became the look every metal band emulated going

At Wednesday’s preview, Halford was sporting one of his own designs. “If you
see something like this thing I’m wearing, with this fantasy mythical creature
with a guitar, it says something strong and powerful,†he said. “That’s
just been a natural progression over the years in rock and roll, to try and find
a way of saying something about yourself with the item of clothing you’re

“A metalhead is rarely seen without a t-shirt or at least one patch or badge
of their favorite bands,†said DJ Lady Starlight. Other signatures of heavy
metal style, she explained, include studs, spandex, lace and most definitively,
elements of fantasy literature and art like chainmail, armor and other Medieval
and Renaissance influences.

As such, many of the Metal God t-shirt designs feature mythical creatures, like
the Cerberus, a ferocious three-headed dog that guards the gates to the
underworld in ancient Greek and Roman mythology. Fantasy in heavy metal, said
Balford, is “a cool association.â€

“You can see I’m covered in tattoos of dragons and all this other mythical
imagery, and that’s again a part of my background as a lyricist,†he said.
“I’ve got a very vivid imagination and a lot of characters I create are made
up in a fantasy kind of way. They always carry realistic virtues and attributes.
So if I’m writing a song like ‘Painkiller,’ it may be, like, about, this
really evil, menacing guy, which is the persona of the creature that you create,
but he’s doing good. I always have a lot of fun with that.â€

So far, the collection only features t-shirts, for both men and women, retailing
between $55 and $65 – but eventually Halford hopes to branch out, albeit
dependent on the economy.

“I think that you have to have a little bit of a leash on what you do,
otherwise it’s chaos,†he said. “But we always see the light at the end of
the tunnel. I don’t think we can suddenly stop, Don’t make records, don’t
make clothes, don’t make movies. I think we have a responsibility to try and
keep that creative optimism going, no matter what we do.â€

Halford’s confident that his particular take on things – he is the Metal
God, after all – will distinguish his brand of rock-related apparel.

“I think that my connection is a little bit more personal than some of the
other great things that are going on around me,†said Halford. “This is a
direct connection to me. It’s called a ‘Metal God’ t-shirt. I think
we’ve all got a bit of Metal God inside of us.â€

He’s also hoping to extend the heavy metal spirit beyond just music fans.

“I was talking to someone earlier and they were saying, it’s like everybody
wants to be a metalhead, but people are like, ‘Can I really be one? I don’t
really know what this is about, but I see it, and I look at what they where and
the shows they go to, and I see it on VH1 Classic Metal Mania, and I’m like,
wow, it looks so cool,’†said Halford. “But if you’re into that rock and
roll, edgy, exciting type of passionate world, then I think that these t-shirts
and this initial launch have a way of connecting to you as a person.â€

Motörhead are awesome (and loud!) live. I got to see them last year during the Metal Masters tour. Incredible and definitely got my ears warmed up for Heaven and Hell and Judas Priest. One of the best moments was hearing 'Metropolis' and seeing a group of military jets from a nearby air force base circle the amphitheatre several times (it was outdoors).

Actually, Motörhead are coming to San Fran on the 8th (I think). Wish I can go, but alas...can't afford the tickets (nor a hotel).

Well now that my head is not ringing anymore(lol!) "Motorhead" last night at the Showbox Sodo down town Seattle was a jaw dropping performance by Phil Campbell,Micky Dee and 
of course the one and only "Lemmy"!!  Motorhead took the stage,Lemmy walked out and said : "Hi Seattle we are Motorhead and we've come to KICK YOUR ASS"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!
And then instantly went into "Iron Fist" and to make a long story short,the thread "Motorhead vs. Iron Maiden whos harder?" is a no brainer....Motorhead were SO FUCKING LOUD that
it knocked your ass into another gear thats for sure....nothing against Maiden,but for a 63 year old guy that plays Rock And Roll at that decibel is truly afuckingmazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!lol!
I told my girlfriend to bring ear plugs and she did but I didn't cause I wanted to get pumbled by the English legends and I've always heard stories about how loud they are and I can
say that they were not kidding!!!!!

Yes Motorhead are one true classic "hard rock" band that every fan of hard rock and heavy metal must see.  Lemmy also said on the encore "We are Motorhead and we play bloody fucking 
rock and roll and don't any of you ever forget it"!!!! And then they as expected played "Ace Of Spades" and as like the other tracks throughout the was FUCKING LOUD!! ol!  Man I have 
never been to a concert that was this loud and still clear.  A friday night and what better to do than to see Motorhead crank out classic after classic!  I will definately be going to see them again
next time they roll through town.
