Sony Music U.K. has uploaded the cover artwork for JUDAS PRIEST's new album, "Angel of Retribution". Check it out at this location.
As previously reported, Epic will celebrate the reunion of the "Painkiller"-era JUDAS PRIEST lineup by issuing a DualDisc for the "Angel of Retribution" title. It is scheduled for March 1 and coinciding with the release of the CD.
Singer Rob Halford's first album with the band in 15 years, "Angel of Retribution" was produced by Roy Z, who has previously worked on solo albums from Halford and IRON MAIDEN's Bruce Dickinson. The set will be bundled with a concert DVD shot in a bullring in Valencia, Spain.
"Angel of Retribution" track listing:
01. Judas Rising
02. Deal With The Devil
04. Worth Fighting For
06. Wheels Of Fire
Commented guitarist Glenn Tipton: "‘We've got a lot of energy. We’re firing on all cylinders and it's obvious on this album. I think it's the most natural JUDAS PRIEST album. A lot of people who have listened to it have said it's timeless. You couldn't really date it."
Added Halford: "That decade that we were out of each other's company just seems to have vanished in smoke. When we got together to begin writing the new material for 'Angel of Retribution', it was really a continuation of where we would have been had we made the next record after 'Painkiller'. All the pieces were already in place."
