Judas Priest: Rob Halford to release new book Biblical

Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford will release his new book, “Biblical: Rob Halford's Heavy Metal Scriptures”, on November 1 via Hachette Books.

The project – which follows his 2020 autobiography, "Confess" – sees Halford cover all facets of hard rock history and the heavy metal world.

Biblical is billied as “an encyclopedia and manifesto in which Halford shares his opinions, memories, and anecdotes regarding every element of the rock and roll work and lifestyle – from tours to tattoos, riffs to riders, and drugs to devil horns.”

In Halford’s relaxed and honest tone, the book mixes serious and in-depth pieces with whimsical reflections on lessons learned during his fifty years of a life in music.

“Biblical” is a handed-down-from-on-high holy tome that transports fans behind the scenes and back into their record collections, to the almighty ways of rock.

"After my penitence with ‘Confess’, it's time for me to be Biblical and take our congregation through all the ins and out and ups and downs of what it takes to make the life of the Metal God," says Halford. "So get comfy in your pew and prepare for the light of revelations by becoming Biblical!"

Last week, Halford and Judas Priest wrapped up a 50th anniversary North American tour in Hamilton, ON, and they will next open a rescheduled European trek in Gdansk, Poland on June 3.

Judas Priest are among the nominees under consideration for induction into the 2022 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. See also:
