June 26, 2017

ROB HALFORD knows Heavy Metal. Since forming in the 1970's, JUDAS PRIEST has achieved a level of stardom and success that has been realized through hard work, relentless touring, and making some of the best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal ever recorded... The 'Greatness' of JUDAS PRIEST, and the lasting impact the band has made on the Heavy Metal genre cannot be overstated-they were among the first to introduce a twin-lead guitar attack, songs recorded with a breakneck tempo, and their standard black leather wardrobe. When ROLLING STONE Magazine recently published their "Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time," they also reached out to HALFORD, the self-proclaimed 'Metal God', for his personal 'Top 10.'
