Judas Priest have shared another soaring single from their upcoming new record, Redeemer of Souls. Watch new guitarist Richie Faulkner share his thoughts before the song kicks off in the YouTube player above.
"Dragonaut." It's a big, heavy track of a song. And it's just a rip-roaring riot from start to finish. And it's a great opener for the record -- it's very direct. It's unmistakable Judas Priest.
Richie's summary encapsulates the song well. It's decidedly old school and it has all the Priest hallmarks, including charging rhythm guitars, squealing leads, and Rob Halford's soaring vocals. "Fire in the sky, paralyzing fear / You know you're gonna die, Dragonaut is here," he sings on the song's chorus, conjuring up visions of medieval fire breathers. Listen to the track above and check out the album's title track right here at Zumic.
Redeemer of Souls will be out in the States July 15th. Pre-order it via Amazon.
