Judas Priest are previewing a performance of their 1982 classic, “The Hellion/Electric Eye”, as featured on the upcoming live package, “Battle Cry.”
The pair of songs originally appeared on the group’s eighth album, “Screaming For Vengeance.” The project peaked at No. 17 on the US Billboard 200 on its way to platinum status for sales of more than 2 million copies in the States.
Due March 25, “Battle Cry” captures the band live at Germany's Wacken Festival last summer in front of an audience of 85,000 while on tour in support of 2014’s “Redeemer Of Souls.”
“More than ever, we take care of the production side of Priest,” says frontman Rob Halford. “And we put out different sides of it at Wacken. We’d never used sidestage screens like that before, as they added a different dimension to Priest. The light show was just extraordinary, and the Blu-ray really gives you the chance to see us in quite a unique way.”
The live package will be available as a 15-track CD, with the entire show on Blu-ray and DVD, as well as digital audio and video formats.
“Electric Eye” is the third track previewed from the set, following “Breaking The Law” and “Metal Gods.”
