TOPIC: Next Priest Studio Album
[Stratovarius217] Tuesday, February 21, 2012 8:06:35 PM 
That Metal Hammer magazine, I found it. Its actually an issue in July 2011.
Anyways this is what It says, straight from the magazine, didn't change a thing.

We've already finished three tracks, which have been fully mixed," says Ian. "Hopefully, we can get something released, even one song, to coincide with our tour."

Glenn believes Priest fans will be delighted with what they've done so far. "It's very heavy and classic Priest. If you recall, after the Turbo album [1986], which was too experimental for some fans, we went back to basics for Ram It Down [1988]. That's what we've done again. There were some people who didn't get Nostradamus [2008], but it was a concept album we had to get out of our system, and I'm very proud of it. This new album is a lot more like typical Priest.
"We've recorded three tracks so far as a four-piece, with me doing all the guitar work. It's been co-produced by myself and Mike Exeter. I'm very excited by what we've done. There's one song called Never Forget, which is a tribute to the fans. And  another titled Metalizer, which really rocks. Rob proves here that not only is he the best metal singer in the world, but he's a great lyricist."

"The style of the new stuff combines shredding guitar playing with screaming vocals," adds Rob. "Everyone should prepare for a fabulous metal album."
Right now, the band has no clue when they'll finish the recording process. "That all depends on how long this tour lasts for," admits Glenn."But at some point next year we will go back in the studio to get this finished, and then it's down to our label [Sony] when it comes out."

Richie Faulkner, though will definitely be involved. "We can't wait to have his input," says Ian. "I'm sure he'll bring a lot of ideas to the songwriting and to the playing."
