Judas Priest are projected to score the first US Top 10 album of their career next week when “Redeemer Of Souls” hits the charts.

Billboard reports industry sources forecast the group's new project to sell upwards of 30,000 copies in it’s first week, good enough to debut with a Top 10 showing.

The metal legends previously peaked at No 11 with 2008’s “Nostradamus.”

Information regarding the new Billboard charts will be releasd on Wednesday.

Judas Priest’s 17th studio album, “Redeemer Of Souls”, is available in a standard version and a deluxe edition with five bonus tracks.

The project marks guitarist Richie Faulkner's studio debut with the group; he replaced founding member K.K. Downing following his retirement in 2011.

Judas Priest will launch a North American tour October 1 in Rochester, New York; the 6-week run will wrap up November 18 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
