Judas Priest Score First Ever US Top 10 Album With 'Redeemer of Souls,' Sell Over 30,000 Units
Metal icons Judas Priest are set for their very first Top 10 album in the US, as "Redeemer of Souls" is projected to sell over 30,000 copies in the States during the first week.

AsĀ Billboard reports, the band's best shot at the Top 10 domain was with 2008's "Nostradamus," which came a tad short with a No. 11 debut.

But that's all about to change, as "Redeemer of Souls" is a shoo-in for one of the leading positions. As for No. 1, the list will likely be topped by 50,000 copies sold by Sia's "1000 Forms of Fear."

The album saw its release on July 8 via Epic Records as the band's 17th studio effort. Following the initial iTunes streaming, the record was recently uploaded on YouTube in full, make sure to give it a listen below.
