Metal gods Judas Priest are streaming their latest album "Redeemer of Souls" in its entirety prior to July 8 release via Epic Records.

Featuring 18 new tracks, five of which are listed as bonus tunes, the record marks the band's 17th studio effort, the first one since 2008's "Nostradamus."

It's also their first album without guitarist K.K. Downing who left the band in 2011 and was replaced by young Richie Faulkner.

Speaking of which, the group has recently stated that they aren't in touch with Downing. As singer Rob Halford told Fox411, Priest is focusing on the future events rather than delving back into the past.

Back to the new album, a solid portion of the fresh tunes was already teased via YouTube, so now make sure to check out the whole deal over on iTunes and let us know how the gods' return feels like.

    It's very good - Apart from the production which is mediocre at best.
    Mediocre record, although Dragonaut, Halls of Valhalla and Battle Cry are pretty cool.
    Im going to ask this right now. Am I literally the only one who liked Nostradamus?
    Says the guy with the dude from BFMV as his profile picture.
    I am "the dude" from the awesome band Bullet For My Valentine
    Considering their age and how long they've been a band (45 years), I'd say it's a pretty damn solid record. Halls of Valhalla RULES in my opinion, along with Sword of Damocles, Battle Cry, and Metalizer. Cold Blooded sounds like the more eerie cousin of Fever to me. Beginninig of the End is very reminiscent of the Sad Wings of Destiny era. The production could be much better, but hey, it's not terrible, either. Good album. The songs definitely are growers.
