In anticipation, the group has teamed with Revolver to premiere a preview video for another song off the LP. In addition to featuring an extended sample of the song, titled Halls of Valhalla, the clip also showcases vocalist Rob Halford and guitarist Glenn Tipton discussing the tune. Watch it below.

Judas Priest have also released the title track and March of the Damned for streaming.

  1. YES!!!!!!! Well, I gotta admit. It looks like the guys really let Richie loose (assuming that is him soloing. Knowing how Glenn plays, that’s not him). This is the sickest one yet!! And, I’m really impressed that Priest is really showing us a lot of behind the scenes or whatever, and teasing so many songs. This is very unlike them. I love it!

  2. Damn, after hearing that, now I really can’t wait for the new album to come out. sounds like Halford can still hit the high notes to me, and if he has any trouble hitting them live, don’t worry Rob, we’ll be there to back you up!

  3. Fuckin’ A! These previews keep getting better and better. This track sounds absolutely killer! Really glad to hear Ritchie all over these tunes. He was pretty amazing on the Epitaph tour, I must admit. His solo in Victim of Changes was particularly memorable. And I, too, am also digging the uncharacteristic promo they are putting into this album! Hail Priest!

      1. I dig the title!! Let’s fly this plane together! All Hail the Mighty Priest!!
        Great to hear the scream in this song and the guitar riffs shred!

  4. Now that sounded great! The first two tracks they released did not grab me, but this sounds like unrestrained Priest.

    In order to drive sells of the bonus track cd they need to release a bonus track next.

  5. Dana,
    You must be so excited!
    I love Angel of Retribution but was not crazy about the Nastradamas album. This sounds like exactly what I was hoping for with Priest! This is going to be great!!

  6. Sounds pretty solid! Way to go Mr. Halford! I always liked KK Downing, and I still wish he was in the band, but honestly Ritchie is sounding killer on these last two previews. Remember what a kick in the ass Scott Travis gave them? Sounds like Ritchie is doing a little bit of the same. I don’t know what made me think of this just now, but “The Sentinel” is one hell of an awesome song. The “dueling” guitar solos in that one are epic.

    1. I thought about that too–first album without KK. I wonder how this will affect the chemistry? More like transform it because KK’s and Tipton’s twin styles were part of what makes Priest immediately recognizable (and Halford’s voice of course). When Travis joined as the drummer, it certainly changed the energy in the band, but they had changed drummer’s before. We will see–whatever happens, I am sure its going to be great!
