Sounds pretty much like I thought it would - I like it. I think there will be better on the album but it’s a good first taste. Nice video too.

Killer stuff, but I think he's doing himself a disservice with the Band name.

Agreed on both counts.

Seems he could have just as easily called the project Downing and that would have been that.

Spot on. 

Pretty much anything without "Priest" in the name.

Good stuff,sounds like it could of come off 'Jugulator'.That band name...it distracts from what is probably a a solid metal record.Haven't we learned the lessons from Oliver/Dawson Saxon...Riley's LA Guns etc yet.....?

In a new interview with Rock Hard Greece, K.K. reveals how the band name KK's Priest came about, stating: "What happened was... I heard what the fans are saying, but, I think a lot of fans will understand that I have been a Priest since 1968. I've wanted to be a Priest since '68. I've traversed the road of the evolution of music as we know it today. We went from blues, when I was young, to progressive blues to rock to hard rock to heavy rock to heavy metal. I've been on that journey. So, I believe that I have a right to continue as a Priest, because some of the guys in Priest now, I haven't met them, and they're playing my songs, which is fine. But if they have a right to be a Priest, then I have a right to be a Priest. And I can't start something absolutely new. I can't sound like a new guitar player. I can't write like a new guitar player. So everything I do is gonna be reminiscent of the past to the fans. So, that's what I decided. And I think it's gonna be absolutely fine, I really do. And the face of KK's Priest, and the being, that will evolve, and that will be on the journey with us. There's so much yet to come... there's more videos, more songs coming your way. And there's more albums to come also."

Apparently Judas Priest's management aren't happy with the name KK's Priest. Downing reveals, "Their lawyers sent a letter to my record company, making threats of legal action if I went forward with KK's Priest, so it's already happened." He adds, "But for the moment, nothing happened. I think they made the threat but decided not to follow through with the threat. But they made the threat to try to stop me making the band."

Asked by Rock Hard Greece's Sakis Fragos about what might happen when KK's Priest performs Judas Priest music live, K.K. says (laughing), "They're gonna sound fantastic."

The name he chose is different enough that there is no way he'd lose in court unless he signed some contract specifically that he can't use the words Judas or Priest in any future endeavours.

Listened to it twice. It has some moments but overall it's just okay.

    • I got duped by this one as well. They had the look, they were on Pakaderm, produced by John & Dino Elefante, so it was a blind purchase for me. Not what I expected, but as you point out, it's not too shabby for what it is. That said, I understand why they were a one-and-done band.
    • I don't know why this concept is so hard for the world to accept. This pandemic ends when we say it ends. It's really as simple as that. As long as we keep shining a blowtorch on it it's never going to stop governing our lives. The obsession with it is a far greater pandemic than the actual virus.  I know people hate when I bring up logical thinking, but we can't just keep reporting all the covid stats as if it is the only thing on earth affecting people. If we need to keep a record of daily covid case numbers, then they should be read alongside an entire daily list of all diseases, viruses and illnesses, so we can see where it sits, in context. If we need to talk about how many hospitalisations there are, then we need a daily list of every single patient in a hospital and exactly why they're there and see where covid ranks on that list too. Same with deaths. A lot of people die in the world every single day. Not just from covid. If we're serious about saving lives, we need a daily list of every single death and what caused it, ranked. See where covid ranks on this list too, and act accordingly. Sounds absolutely fucking ridiculous? Of course it does. But we need to stop pretending covid is the only thing on planet earth and put it into context with every single other human ailment.  It's like the meek kid at school who runs from spiders and has a phobia for everything is currently governing how we all live our lives. If people want to live their lives in fear of this thing, I'm all for them doing that but there needs to be a time when they leave us out of it.  I like cleaning my ears and nostrils with the tip of my penis, but do I need to enforce this method of cleanliness on the entire world? No, I do not. I am scared of losing the 386th hair in the 147th row of hairs on my head, but do I need the world around me to live in fear of hair loss? Why are we all being dragged into this stupid fucking thing? If people want to panic, let them panic, but leave the rest of us out of it.
    • Now this is a fun album. Played it a few times this morning and really liking it. 
    • Apparently your not a fan, we did that flick back in 08, it was called G-Off is RUSSIAN IN THE BACK DOOR, there's also 7 sequels, we are shooting on location right now for his next big flick called, Trudeau Felches the Canadian Bacon, and it's funny you singled that sentence out, whats really so sadly comic is Joe Biden is making Trump look like the greatest leader in history, these people are going to be fighting to re-elect him when this term is over, I really think the funniest part about Trump being re-elected, will be the 4 straight years of silence from democrats in the following years, they are all implicit in this, and all the people who didn't vote for biden on his credentials, they just voted so Trump didn't go back in. egg all over the face, not to mention chinese and russian jizz, face and back
