Judas Priest are previewing a performance of their 1980 classic, “Metal Gods”, as featured on the upcoming live package, "Battle Cry."
“Metal Gods” originally appeared on the band’s sixth album, “British Steel.” The project peaked at No. 34 on the US Billboard 200 on its way to platinum status for sales of more than 1 million copies.
"The Priest is back!,” says the band. “Bringing you molten metal mayhem captured live, we're coming at you in full force on ‘Battle Cry’. This is Priest burning up and delivering the goods for all our metalheads around the world like never before - so hold tight and turn it up as we roar you through a night of screaming heavy-metal magic keeping the faith alive!"
Due March 25, the set captures the UK metal vets 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.”
“Battle Cry” will be available on a 15-track CD, with the entire show on Blu-ray and DVD (running over 94 minutes), as well as digital audio and video formats.
The DVD and Blu-ray also contains three bonus tracks shot in Poland on December 10, 2015 at The Ergo Arena, Gdansk, Poland.
Judas Priest were named the No. 8 Rock News Artist Of The Year as part of the 2015 hennemusic Rock News Awards.
