JUDAS PRIEST Guitarist Talks New Album

In a recent interview with RollingStone.com, guitarist Richie Faulkner and singer Rob Halford of JUDAS PRIEST, stated the following on the current progress of the band's upcoming album:

"It's coming along really well," Faulkner said. "We're not saying too much about it at the moment — it's kind of early to say. But it's shaping up really well. The great thing from a writing point of view is that PRIEST's brand of music is so broad, there's a lot to take from. One extreme from the other. You can put stuff on the table and nothing is discounted. You might get some bands that are like, 'Oh, we can't do that, it sounds a bit like this or that.' With PRIEST, you can put anything on the table and you've got the flexibility from the scope of the sound, creatively. And then you've got people like Halford and Glenn, they put their stamp on it. Songs like 'Green Manalishi' and 'Diamonds And Rust'  when a band like PRIEST, with that sort of musical voice, gets on something, it becomes a whole different monster. And the same thing with the new stuff. So it's exciting. And from my point of view, to be a part of that is ridiculous. It's fantastic."
