The 17th studio album from Judas Priest (and first in six years) is titled Redeemer Of Souls and will be released in North America tomorrow, July 8th. The album has been available for streaming in its entirety for the past week and I must say that it is the best Priest record in almost 30 years. Yes, even rivalling 1990’s Painkiller! Stand-out tracks include “Dragonaut”, “Halls of Valhalla”, “Sword Of Damocles”, “Crossfire” and “Battle Cry”.
