[HOT ROCKIN' METAL GODDESS] Monday, October 04, 2010 9:07:14 AM
J.D., you have to remember that Rob is back in Priest now. Everything has changed as far as the HALFORD band goes. He will NOT do anything in HALFORD that he can do with Priest. HALFORD is his outlet for things other than Priest. Priest would never do sports songs or 25 Years because these topics are personal to Rob. So I don't believe that anything Rob does with HALFORD has any impact whatsoever on Priest or what they will do next. Most likely, Rob is saving all the kick ass metal for the next Priest album! Unfortunately, I have to agree with you, we won't find out until 2012...... it's a LOOOONG wait. Rumor has it that Priest is touring the British Steel tour at the festivals in Europe next summer. It's not Nostra which would probably keep them out longer practicing, etc. So they will be coming off from playing one of their best albums night after night and that should inspire them to write some incredible new songs. Keep the faith - the PRIEST WILL BE BACK!! [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by J.D. DIAMOND from Sunday, October 03, 2010 11:32:20 PM)

(lol!) I've flip flopped my opinions (about what kind of album will be released next) back and forth so many times since the release of Nostradamus that now I've finally come to tearms with the fact that after the release of Nostradamus with that strange material they came up with (yuk) and with the influence of the Halford 3 Winter Songs album and now the Made Of Metal album,I think that the next Priest album may have some of this residue from these 3 albums left over in it?
I've really lost all "faith" in this next LP,especially with the writting sessions when ever that may be could have Halford's solo album style mixed in with it like a left over residue,that is a possibility nobody is thinking about. I can't help but to "doubt" that the next album will be even as good as Angel Of Retribution with the songs both Priest and solo halford has been coming up with lately. I won't hold my breath for a quality new Judas Priest album but if it does turn out good then I'll eat my words,but I really am beginning to doubt it. "SIGH".
Hey man don't lose faith!
Look at that song The Mower Rob created for the new Halford album. That is the most brutal song Rob's ever sang on, and features some of his most intense vocals, which were recorded IN 2010.
And AOR and Nostradamus? They've both got some roaring fast and screaming tracks on there.
Priest will always be able to deliver the goods, the band themselves said the next album they do could be a return to the classic Priest sound after touring with British Steel so much.

I too do not care for his solo stuff that much either. I don't like 'Fight" at all,not even one song.I don't like "Two" either,I only like 2 songs off Ressurection "Ressurection the song" and "The One You Love To Hate",all the other tracks I just don't care for. The Crucible album I do like,there are a couple of tracks on that LP that I don't like,but I sure can find 8 songs I do like.
I do not like any of the Halford 3 christmas album (yuK) not even "Get Into The Spirit"....too "blah" for my tastes. I haven't really heard all of the new album yet,but so far I do not like the song "Made Of Metal" . I guess I just don't like the band "Halford" that much. I do feel 100% we will NOT be getting a new Judas Priest album in 2011. Yes they will tour like the band says,but they will find something to tour like the 30th aniversary of Screaming For Vengeance that Rob talked about,he didn't say it was etched in stone but he was talking about it. If they do that,they wouldn't even have to make an album.
I really don't think K.K. & Glenn are into making another album right now. This is why Halford is doing what he is doing. I don't blame the members for not wanting to record an album,but as a fan it is getting "old". I think in early to mid 2012 they will be ready for something,but by then all 4 members will be in thier 60's,can they crank out a Painkiller style album then? Glenn will be 64 years old in 2012?

Halford has to many irons in the fire. I think he should forget this solo thing and just concentrate on Judas Priest. Concentrate on an all out full blown Judas Priest metal cd. I'm just not that interested in the solo stuff.
