Rob Halford of the mighty Judas Priest is ready to release another solo album - of holiday tunes. Seriously.
The album, to be called Halford III - Winter Songs will include some traditional holiday songs as well as some originals. The backing bands consists of Roy Z. on guitar, Metal Mike Chlasciak on guitar, Mike Davis on bass and Bobby Jarzombek on drums.
Every regular reader here knows I despise holiday music - it's generally too saccharin for my taste - but I may be interested in this. Any holiday album with Halford and Metal Mike *must* be heavy. Two of the songs, "Get Into the Spirit" and "We Three Kings" are available for purchase now, but I think I'll wait for the entire disc. Click to buy and read more about the album.
Winter Songs is available October 26th.
