JUDAS PRIEST's ROB HALFORD Says New Album Should Be Completed By End Of Year - May 29, 2013
In 2011, British heavy metal legends JUDAS PRIEST embarked on the "Epitaph" tour, their final massive world trek ever, but that doesn't mean the band is hanging it up. In fact, they're working on new music and singer Rob Halford told VH1 Radio Network's Dave Basner what to expect from it.

"We have all the songs in our heads running right now as we're speaking to you, we can hear them," he said.

"It's coming along really well."

He continued: "We're in no rush. It'll be ready when it's ready. What we will say is we felt it was very important to follow up 'Nostradamus', the last release, and that was a concept experiment and it was a real success for us and the fans loved it, but I think our fans and ourselves as a band, we want to get back to the side of PRIEST that we haven't heard for a few years and reemphasize and remake those big, heavy metal statements again."

As for when fans can expect to get the new PRIEST album, Halford explained that he and his bandmates aren't going to set dates for themselves.

"I think that's the best way to approach it, because it would be wrong to say, 'On this date, at this moment, the record is coming out.' But where we're at now, we're very, very confident and, going out on a limb, I would say that we should have it wrapped up by the end of this year. We're forging ahead and everything's looking good, and yeah, it's looking right. So in the not-too-distant metal future, there will be new PRIEST to listen to."

Watching Slayer concert on VH1 as I type. Also looked up Jeff's cause of death at the age of 49. Alcohol. Sad.

My old bud, John 5, was there. Good for him.

Ho ho! I couldn't believe this when I heard it on the news last night:

Too funny! I want to apply for disability too! This guy has seen some 300 concerts last year in a 365 day / year calendar?!? I need help too!! I haven't been able to concentrate on work because I have seen far fewer! Obama, help me!!!

Swedish man gets disability benefits for heavy metal "addiction"

In Sweden, a headbanger has succeeded in having his heavy metal music obsession declared an addiction that requires state disability benefits.

Roger Tullgren, 42, a heavily tattooed metal head who works as a dishwasher in southern Sweden, said he consulted three psychologists to receive statements testifying to the extent of his heavy metal music dependency, reports the Local, a Swedish news website.

“I have been trying for 10 years to get this classified as a handicap,” he told the Local.

"I spoke to three psychologists and they finally agreed that I needed this to avoid being discriminated against."

(More Sweden news from GlobalPost: No "boys" or "girls" at gender-neutral preschool in Sweden)

Tullgren, who is described as having long black hair, tattoos and a collection of skull and crossbones jewelry, said his heavy metal addiction caused him to attend nearly 300 concerts last year that left him unable to hold down a job, and forced to go on welfare.

His new part-time job as a dishwasher at a restaurant in the city of Hassleholm will be supplemented by disability benefits.

"I signed a form saying: 'Roger feels compelled to show his heavy metal style. This puts him in a difficult situation on the labor market. Therefore he needs extra financial help'. So now I can turn up at a job interview dressed in my normal clothes and just hand the interviewers this piece of paper," Tullgren said.

Tullgren’s new boss has agreed to give him time off to see concerts, and lets him dress how he wants and play heavy metal music while washing dishes, provided it is not too loud when there are guests at the restaurant.

Tullgren said he got hooked on heavy metal at age 2 when his older brother came home with a Black Sabbath album.

The Toronto Globe and Mail newspaper notes that while addiction treatment usually involves helping addicts to kick the habit, “in uber-liberal Sweden, the state could be accused of ‘enabling’ Mr. Tullgren’s addiction by accommodating his heavy metal lifestyle.”

Damn! Sample sounds good. Sadly, the only song that kinda sounds odd is Ripper Owens doing "Kiss of Death." **Sigh** George and crew still have it, though! Better than Dokken sounds nowadays.
T&N, Featuring "The Big 3" From Dokken, To Release New Album On October 31st

T & N, the band formerly known as "Tooth & Nail," featuring current and former Dokken band members-George Lynch, Jeff Pilson and Mick Brown, will be releasing their new album Slave To Empire on October 31st through Rat Pak Records.

T & N's Slave To Empire offers seven new original songs and five re-recorded classic Dokken songs that feature sensational vocal performances by Tim “Ripper” Owens, Doug Pinnick (Kings X), Sebastian Bach, and Robert Mason (Warrant, Lynch Mob, Big Cock). Add to the mix the hard hitting, multi-talented drumming of Brian Tichy.

This 12 song release is described as "progressive, heavy, dark and bluesy." Slave to the Empire captures the spirit and magic from the classic metal genre, and is truly a work of art that will not disappoint.

JUDAS PRIEST 'Might' Release New Album Early Next Year - July 11, 2012
Peter Hodgson of recently conducted an interview with guitarist Richie Faulkner of British heavy metal legends JUDAS PRIEST. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below. You've been in JUDAS PRIEST for over a year now and the fans seem to have welcomed you with open arms. How does that feel? Were you worried about how you'd be accepted?

Richie: I think that any big change in such a legendary band is going to bring a certain amount of skepticism and when people don't know the outcome, we tend to fear the worst. The band and me were sure that when the fans came to see us live, all fears would be put to bed. It astonishes, really, how the fans have welcomed me into the family and I feel honored to be accepted in the way that I have been. The great thing is, even though the fans didn't know how it was gonna be at first, they still believed in the band, got their tickets and came to see the show. When the opening song kicked in, all politics and uncertainty seemed to be blown out the door and everyone was just part of a huge family, ya know? Hats off to the fans for that and a massive thank you. How much lead-up did you have between getting the PRIEST gig and stepping on stage with them?

Richie: It was about a month before rehearsals started for the "Epitaph" tour that I got the gig. We rehearsed for two weeks and then flew out to L.A. to play on the finale of "American Idol". So my first show with the band was in front of nearly 30 million people! No pressure then guys, eh?! We then flew back to England again to continue rehearsing, so I think it was about two months in total before we played the first show of the "Epitaph" tour. Are you writing new material with PRIEST? And are you able to fit in your own musical pursuits at the moment?

Richie: We are working on a new album. Glenn [Tipton, guitar] and Rob [Halford, vocals] started writing material early 2011 before I joined the band, and I got together with them earlier this year to work on some more tracks with them. We're getting together again after the summer to do some more writing and if all goes to plan, we might have the album out early next year. The ideas we have so far are sounding very strong and very PRIEST, so watch this space!

Wow,Saxon's  last album "Call To Arms" was released June 3rd,2011...8 months ago and now the band is in the studio working on a new album already! This new Saxon album (Saxon's 20th studio album) will most likely be released before the new Judas Priest album is out.  Priest has wasted the last part of thier career on touring grabbing cash and left us starving for "metal".  This is what pisses me off.....Rob comes back in 2004 ....8 years ago and alls we have really is Retribution and that was 7 years ago?  They have really left us metal heads starving and I think the band fucked up by doing this.

What Maiden fanboy let THIS little sidebar go without mention? "Woe to you..."
Gotta admit, we all know his words by heart. RIP
