Metal Legends Judas Priest return with their 17th studio album featuring the tracks `Redeemer Of Souls' & `March Of The Damned'.
Redeemer Of Souls is Judas Priest's 17th studio album "Redeemer of Souls" with this new album marks the band's first album to not feature songwriter K.K. Downing, who has been replaced with former Lauren Harris guitarist Richie Faulkner.
Redeemer of Souls is a return to thunderous and unrelenting anthems that Judas Priest do best, While Priest's previous album "Nostradamus," received a mixed response from hardcore Priest fan's for it's synthesizer-heavy sound, "Redeemer of Souls" sees a strong return to the classic Judas Priest hard metal sound throughout the 13 track album which is particularly evident in songs "Halls of Valhalla" & "Dragonaut." which standout & show Priest delivering hardcore anthems that are the albums two standout tracks.
"Crossfire" sees Judas Priest's flavour past blues rock influences while "March of the Damned" is a Guitar heavy affair , the title track "Redeemer of Souls" delivers energetic lead vocals by singer Rob Halford.
"Battle Cry" & "Metalizer"particularly showcases a strong high octave vocals from Halford blending excellent guitar work thunderous drumming, "Hell & Back" feels like it should've been on Priests previous album "Nostradamus" while "Cold Blooded" is a slower yet excellent rock track.
Overall, "Redeemer of Souls" Sees the 62 year old singer Rob Halford staying true to the bands roots & style of music of pure metal joy that's full of powerful metal anthems, New member Guitarist Richie Faulkner has certainly had a positive influence on the band & revitalized Judas Priest who seem rejuvenated & have delivered their strongest album here in over a decade.

Never really got into 'Judas Priest' though always aware of
the groups music.
Nevertheless a good review of the album.
