Headphones are recommended for the full experience.

According to PRIESTJudas Priest’s Guide To Heavy Metal “aims to put JUDAS PRIEST‘s story and, of course, their music in front of a new audience, who may already be fans of the genre, but want to explore and widen their discovery further, with the chance to delve into albums, playlists and gain a deeper understanding into the wider impact the band had across fashion, culture and more, because, after all, metal isn’t just about the music, it’s a way of life!”

Bassist Ian Hill is the sole remaining original member of PRIEST, which formed in 1969. Singer Rob Halford joined the group in 1973 and guitarist Glenn Tipton signed on in 1974. Rob left PRIEST in the early 1990s to form his own band, then came back to PRIEST in 2003. Founding guitarist K.K. Downing parted ways with the band in 2011, and was replaced by Richie Faulkner.

PRIEST‘s current touring lineup consists of HillHalford, guitarists Andy Sneap and Faulkner, and drummer Scott Travis.
