It was announced today that Judas Priest would be back with a new album called Redeemer of Souls! The title track was released online today for streaming. Really, it seems that Judas Priest should’ve called this album “Redeemer of Ourselves!” It’s their first album since Nostradamus, which was a two disc concept album, all about the life and prophecies of Nostradamus. It was received with very mixed reviews. Personally, I didn’t care for it. There were a few tracks that I felt were solid rockers, such as “Prophecy.” If the track, released today, is any indicator of the rest of the album, it should be a good rocking album! Hopefully it’s a return to their classic sound! It’s the first album to feature new guitarist, Richie Faulkner, who replaced K.K. Downing, after K.K. announced his retirement from the band, to pursue golf. I’m looking forward to hearing more of this! Only time will tell, and I’m not one for jumping to conclusions, but I think this is a great redemption for Judas Priest!
