Judas Priest Unveil Full ‘Redeemer of Souls’ Opening Track

We’re almost a month away from the release of Judas Priest‘s ‘Redeemer of Souls,’ and now the metal legends have given us a third full taste of what fans can expect. You can stream the opening song, ‘Dragonaut,’ above.

As with the release of ‘March of the Damned‘ and the sample of ‘Walls of Valhalla,’ the clip opens with an introduction by a member of the band. This time it’s new guitarist Richie Faulkner who does the honors. “‘Dragonaut’ — it’s a big, heavy track of a song,” he says. “And it’s just a rip-roaring ride from start to finish. And it’s a great opener for the record — it’s very direct. It’s unmistakable Judas Priest.”

Due on July 15, ‘Redeemer of Souls’ — whose title track can be heard here — is Judas Priest’s first album since 2008′s ‘Nostradamus.’ It features 13 tracks, and a Deluxe Edition adds another five songs. In an exclusive video interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, frontman Rob Halford said that the record’s lyrics will carry on many Priest traditions. “This album has got vikings, dragons, aliens, a bit of bible thumping and some guns,” he said. “That’s what you need in a metal record. It’s strong and it’s intense, but there’s a lot of fun and exploration, through at least that side, with the lyrical content.” You can see the rest of that interview below.
