Already, Redeemer of Souls is creating a deafening prerelease buzz, largely due to overwhelmingly positive reviews:
"The word 'epic' is thrown around too often in the world of music, but Judas Priest's new album Redeemer of Souls is, in fact, truly epic. From Rob Halford's powerful vocals to Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner's monster riffs and soaring guitar solos, Redeemer of Souls takes listeners on a fantastical metal journey from beginning to end." -Loudwire
"Galloping riffs, dueling solos and Rob Halford's battle shrieks make it classic Priest at its metal core." -Rolling Stone Magazine [review of "Redeemer of Souls" single]
"The gods of metal return with all cylinders firing on Redeemer of Souls, a juggernaut of an album that features raw, unleashed power as only the mighty Priest can deliver. Valhalla, they are coming - and coming HARD." -Mike Mettler, Sound & Vision Magazine
Comprised of Rob Halford (vocals), Glenn Tipton (guitar), Richie Faulkner (guitar), Ian Hill (bass), and Scott Travis (drums), Judas Priest is responsible for some of heavy metal's alltime classic songs ("Living After Midnight," "Breaking the Law," "You've Got Another Thing Coming," etc.) and albums (British Steel, Screaming for Vengeance, Painkiller, etc.).
