Title: JUDAS PRIEST Scores Highest-Charting Album Ever In U.S. With 'Firepower'

According to Billboard, JUDAS PRIEST's "Firepower" has entered the Billboard 200 chart at position No. 5, making it the band's highest-charting album ever. 2014's "Redeemer Of Souls" debuted and peaked at No. 6, while 2008's "Nostradamus" landed at No. 11 and 2005's "Angel Of Retribution" came in at No. 13.

"Firepower" moved 49,000 equivalent album units in first week of release. Of that sum, 48,000 were in traditional album sales, just shy of the 54,000 copies sold by "Angel Of Retribution" in that album's first week. The "Firepower" chart position was bolstered by sales generated from a concert ticket/album sale redemption offer in association with the band's current North American tour.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi- metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

As previously reported, "Firepower" landed at position No. 5 on the U.K. album chart. It marks the band's highest ranking, and first time in the Top 10, since "British Steel" reached No. 4 in 1980. Elsewhere, "Firepower" has also become PRIEST's first-ever No. 1 in Sweden.

"Firepower" was released on March 9 via Epic. The disc was recorded by British producer Andy Sneap, the band's longtime collaborator Tom Allom and engineer Mike Exeter (BLACK SABBATH). The cover artwork for "Firepower" was created by the Chilean/Italian artist Claudio Bergamin.

JUDAS PRIEST "Firepower" world tour marks the band's first run of dates since guitarist Glenn Tipton announced that he was retiring from the road due to his battle with Parkinson's disease. He is being replaced on tour by Sneap, also known for his work as the guitar player in NWOBHM revivalists HELL and cult thrash outfit SABBAT.

Tipton was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease four years ago — after being stricken by the degenerative condition at least half a decade earlier — but only recently announced he was going to sit out touring activities in support of "Firepower". The guitarist, who is now 70 and has performed on every PRIEST album since the band's 1974 debut set, "Rocka Rolla", is not quitting the band, but simply cannot handle the rigorous challenges of performing live.

The North American leg of the "Firepower" tour will wrap on May 1 in San Antonio, Texas.

This doesn't prove much other than there is a market for metal music, even if played by geriatric has-beens.

This is more about the lack of appeal of modern pop/rap music than any particular validation of metal-themed rest home muzak.

They have been around for 49 years. They wouldn't still be charting if they were has beens. You probably didn't even listen to any of the music. Which is fine many people don't like hard rock or heavy metal. I would suggest you give a listen to the song I linked for Tpaine. Also Halfords description of lyrics I posted to liberator is interesting.

JUDAS PRIEST's ROB HALFORD: 'I'm Not One Of These Gay Guys With A Cause'

Now I'm starting to worry that you might turn LF into a gay conservative heavy metal cruising/hookup site. LOL

It is interesting that, after posting a lot of rough anti-homo stuff in the sidebar and your constant attacks on sneakypete along those lines, you just adore this heavy-metal sodomite singer. How do you reconcile that mentally? I really do wonder.

So you think this sodomite singer is going straight to hell but that he's still a great singer that can be admired by a Christian straight guy who likes heavy metal music so you may as well enjoy his music as he barrels straight through the gates of hell?

I just liked the music,before he ever came out. When you are listening to their music for like 20 years before he comes out, do you suddenly pretend that you never liked that music.

Ask Grandisland he likes them too and he dislikes faggots as much as I do.

So am I going to hell because I listen to this music?

We all sin TC. Maybe he will repent someday. Probably not but you never know. It is not like Rob Halford is my hero.

"I'm a different guy to when I was 20," Halford said during an appearance on HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta's official podcast, "The Jasta Show" (hear audio below). "I've been able to look at the world and see the world and find out what really is the most important and valuable thing, to me, as I live from day to day."

He continued: "When I got clean and sober 28 years ago, that was a major change in my life. And part of my recovery is just having this higher-power belief. And it works. It works, man. It really, really is important."

Halford added: "There probably will be people listening to [this] podcast who don't have anything like that in their life, and that's great; it's all about acceptance. But I always say to people, if you're thinking about it, the simplest thing I do is I pray. I pray quite a bit, actually. And even if you don't believe in prayer, just have a go. Pray for a good day, or just pray for your friend, or whatever it might be. And it's amazing, man, 'cause it absolutely works. I guarantee, it genuinely does work. And now I'm sounding like [American evangelical Christian evangelist] Billy Graham, but I'm just trying to express some of the things that are important to me on a day-to-day basis that make me able to walk out on that stage each night and do my work."

While Halford states that he doesn't want to preach and force people to drink and act responsibly, he is quick to warn up-and-coming musicians that there will be consequences to their actions.

(Here's someone's who's obviously a former Judas Priest fan, seeing the band in the light and exposing it.

I watched and listened to Alford in your youtube. He wasn't very credible when describing the song's meaning. At best he's as usual calling for a mere rebellion. This time he calls the enemy "The Administration." Which one? The US Gummint? God's Kingdom? You tell me.

All of I can take from this band is about 10 seconds.

To each his own, but I consider Death Metal the equivalent of White Rap. There is no real melody. It's not "singing," it's one long chant.

You seem to still be deluded about who and what the band is truly about; Alford is STILL a flaming Satanic homo and Judas Priest OPENLY proselytized for rebellion and Satan, in tone, lyrically, symbolically, through its very vibe.

Look -- I've had to refrain from some music I used to like....before I realized what it was really about.

About destroying bad guys. It is what we need to do to the evil radical muslims that is the way I see it. Would be a killer song to listen to if you were in war and had the artillary going shooting the enemy up.

"Firepower"

With weapons drawn we claim the future Invincible through every storm Bring in the foe to be defeated To pulverize from dusk till dawn

Firepower Petrifies Firepower

The die is cast, make no exceptions We're forged by evil to compel Come rally round this flag of freedom Our unions thrives so go to hell

Firepower Taking lives Firepower Neutralize

Empty the chamber Lock and reload This world thrives on danger It's bound to explode

Aim for the target With laser and light Releasing the trigger Puts victory in sight

No time to pray or ask forgiveness Those blessed souls are now deceased There is no sense in this contrition With open arms we fight for peace

We fight with firepower Petrifies Firepower Between the eyes Firepower Mortifies Firepower Man's demise

Well, it is an explanation of sorts. But there simply is no Judas Priest without the lead singer. The same way there is no Queen without Freddy Mercury. It's not unusual for a group's entire career to rest on the talent of a single singer/songwriter.

Without him, there is no Judas Priest.

READ those lyrics again.

"Come rally round this flag of freedom [to do evil] Our [demonic] unions thrives so go to hell [with us]..."
No time to pray or ask forgiveness [from God]..."
"This world [of Satan] thrives on danger It's bound to explode..."

These lyrics are unmistakable.

So you think the open homo lead singer of Judas Priest, a band who has always had a blasphemous vibe and songs, is just fine but a divorced singer who remarried 6 years later is far worse?

LOL
