Check it out kiddies... the Metal God has a new single called "The Mower" available via his web site ( http://www.halfordmusic.com ), and his new studio album "HALFORD IV: MADE OF METAL" will be released in October.

 

Imagine my surprise, I didn't even know Rob had anything new in the works... :beerbang:

By the way, unconfirmed rumors suggest that additional song titles for HALFORD IV will include "The Garden Weasel," "The Power Shovel" and "The Weed Whacker" :rofl:

"The Mower" kicks ass! It's like the Fight band playing the heavy Crucible material...I'm ready for some new Halford!

 

Hellz yeah. If this new track is any indication, then Halford's next one will utterly crush Priest's NOSTRADAMUS...

I don't want it to be to heavy or Fight like since that was what was so great about Resurection and Crucible, they were heavy but still had that Priest style melody mixed in. The first Fight disc is awesome but the second one was not good at all.

But he's back IN Priest now, so there's no need to make it too Priest like...I think the blend of Fight and Crucible works...

I'm not saying it doesn't work I just don't want a repeat of that second Fight disc that was just heavy with no melody and not many good songs that's all. I don't expect that to happen again though. I have the new song that was on the remastered Resurection disc and the new tune that was on the Metal God Essentials and both kick ass.

I'm on my first spin of 'Made of Metal' and it's quite good.

Not as badass as 'Resurrection' or 'Crucible' and much more Hard Rock in some places with some newer sounds, such as the slide guitar in "Till the Day I Die". Still a very good disc but not near as good as what came before but still probably better than the last two Priest discs, well maybe not as creative but more straight forward.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.

    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
