After Judas Priest recently stormed the German charts with their new album “Invincible Shield” (reaching number 1), the avowed blues fan and band frontman Rob Halford has now announced to Rock Antenne that he is planning a blues album. The same crew that worked on his Christmas album “Celestial,” including his brother Nigel and his nephew Alex, will be part of this project.

Speaking to Rock Antenne, Halford shared the backstory as follows: 
“As you might have occasionally heard here and there, I had the ambition to make at least one blues album. Because metal, yes, all of rock’n’roll, comes from the blues. A large part of music stems from the blues. And since I am a fan of the blues, I have always wanted to explore this area. A few years ago, we — that is, my brother, my nephew Alex on bass, and a friend of ours — made the CELESTIAL Christmas album together. And then, towards the end of those sessions, I said to the guys, ‘Why don’t we just make a blues album?’ Okay, it’s a simple idea, right? So, we have the music ready, all these songs are primed for the go-ahead. It’s just about timing. Timing and planning are so important in our world, in music. So, that’s something I’d really like to make happen. And if I get the time to implement it, I will do it.”
