Rob Halford Praises Five Finger Death Punch: 'They're Absolutely Amazing'
Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford recently discussed his collaboration with US metallers Five Finger Death Punch on their latest single "Lift Me Up," revealing nothing but praises for the LA five-piece. During an interview with Full Metal Jackie, the singer called the group "absolutely amazing," saying that their golden age is likely to come very soon. "I absolutely love the band, I think the band is absolutely amazing," Halford said (via Loudwire). "I've been watching the band from the early days much like I've been doing with much of the metal scene, Im just feasting on it all the time especially since it's so easy now through the internet to pick up on things." After stating he was "absolutely thrilled" to receive the invitation from the band, the frontman elaborated further, saying, "I was excited because I started following the band's career and I just had a feeling they're about to go over what we call a tipping point and I think the band's going to explode this year worldwide, I really do. I asked for the track to be sent to me just to check it out and as soon as I heard it coming out the speakers I went, 'Man, I want in on this.' "We just bonded right away and they just have their hearts in the right place, I love them for that and I love them for the fact that they believe in themselves a thousand percent and not letting anybody get in their way. I'm just happy for them that the single is doing so good right now and I'm sure it's going to get better over the coming weeks." Five Finger Death Punch are currently preparing to release their fourth studio effort, a double record titled "The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell." The album's first volume is scheduled to drop on July 23, you can check out the official "Lift Me Up" lyric video below.
