Judas Priest Debut New Song!

judaspriestredeemerofsouls

UK heavy metal legends Judas Priest have released a stream of “Redeemer Of Souls”, the title track to their new upcoming studio album, which comes out July 15th in the US (July 14th in the UK). It is the first new album from Priest since 2008′s Nostradamus, which was met with lukewarm critical reception.

In an interview with Artisan News on March 17th, singer Rob Halford stated that the new album was officially done and added, “It’s a relief. It’s a relief because whenever Priest makes an album, like any band, you put your heart and soul into it; it is that typical ‘blood, sweat and tears.’ It’s not an easy thing to do 40 years later. But Priest has always been up for the challenge of that, and it’s one of things that we love to do more than anything else as we move on through our metal years. So this is a great time for Priest: 40th anniversary, a brand new record. Life couldn’t be better.

Head on down to check out this brand new song, which sounds like classic Priest!

“Redeemer of Soul” lyrics:
Time to settle the score
He’s loaded to feel their remorse
Steadfast strong that’s for sure
The deal of his life takes its course
No giving in
They don’t understand
They get to give up and to meet his demands

Count down coming your way
He’s the last to obey
Watch him seizing the day
Redeemer – redeemer of souls

There’s no holding him back
The ransom announces his deeds
He’s not cutting you slack
Just taking what ever he needs
Diamonds for eyes
As he begins
On that two wheeler from hell on the wind

Now he’s setting the tune
They know the stare down is soon
Vengeance comes at high noon
Redeemer of souls
On the skyline
The stranger draws near
Feel the heat and he’s shaking with fear

Countdown coming your way
He’s the last to obey
Watch him seizing the day
Redeemer of souls

    Yup – sounds like Priest to me.
    Not too shoddy, but it’ll take a few mores spins before I fully decide….

    Sounds like it is an older song, wonder if it’s leftover from “Sin After Sin” or “Sad Wings Of Destiny”.
