New Judas Priest Album 'Absolutely Finished,' Rob Halford Confirms
Metal icons Judas Priest have officially wrapped up their new studio record, tentatively due later this year.

Chatting with Artisan News yesterday (March 17), vocalist Rob Halford confirmed that the "Nostradamus" follow-up is "absolutely finished as of today."

"The record is finished; it's absolutely finished as of today," the singer said. "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," Halford noted. "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."

As reported, the band's latest world tour marked the final global trek for Priest, so no extensive concert support of the new record can be expected.

When it comes to the new album's vibe, the group announced returning to their classic sound and delivering a full-on heavy metal groove.
