Set for release on Friday, March 9th,  via  Records – the is comprised of fourteen tracks of pure and highly inspired metal.  And to mark the occasion Priest (singer Rob Halford, guitarists  and Richie Faulkner, bassist Ian Hill, and drummer Scott Travis) has reunited with producer Tom Allom (the man behind the board for all of the ’s releases from 1979-1988, including such stellar classics as ‘ in the East,’ ‘British Steel,’ ‘Screaming for Vengeance’ and ‘Defenders of the Faith’) and with -winning producer Andy Sneap also helping to raise the sonic bar even higher.
“Tom Allom has got this classic thing,” explains Halford. “And Andy is a bit more of a ‘modern producer’ but his thinking is a little bit different to Tom’s.
