Judas Priest have just announced their long-awaited new album. Their 17th studio album will be called Redeemer of Souls, and they've shared the title track as a preview.

The song's style is torn from the pages of their '80s songbook, with galloping rhythms and squealing metal riffs throughout. The vengeful tale is classic Priest rock, with Rob Halford's vocals soaring almost as high as they once did. The track is the first since the 2011 departure of K.K. Downing, so his replacement, Richie Faulkner, fills in alongside longtime guitarist Glenn Tipton. The two play well off each other, including chunky dueling riffs and a wailing guitar solo. Check out the old-school metal above.

The return to their vintage sound was no accident. Tipton said in a statement:

Sometimes in the past we may have come under fire for being too adventurous musically – so we have listened. From start to finish, Redeemer of Souls is 13 songs of pure classic Priest metal.

Redeemer of Souls will be out in the States July 15th on Epic Records, and out July 14th in the UK on Columbia. Stay tuned to Zumic for more details.

Judas Priest "Redeemer of Souls" Lyrics:

Time to settle the score
He's loaded to feel their remorse
Steadfast strong that's for sure
The deal of his life takes its course
No giving in
They don't understand
They get to give up and to meet his demands

Count down coming your way
He's the last to obey
Watch him seizing the day
Redeemer - redeemer of souls

There's no holding him back
The ransom announces his deeds
He's not cutting you slack
Just taking what ever he needs
Diamonds for eyes
As he begins
On that two wheeler from hell on the wind

Now he's setting the tune
They know the stare down is soon
Vengeance comes at high noon
Redeemer of souls
On the skyline
The stranger draws near
Feel the heat and he's shaking with fear

Countdown coming your way
He's the last to obey
Watch him seizing the day
Redeemer of souls
