Rob Halford has purchased his ground-breaking, critically acclaimed Halford catalog from Sanctuary Records U.K. The three albums under the band name: Halford include 'Resurrection' (2000), the two-CD concert recording 'Live Insurrection' (2001) and 'Crucible' (2002).

The Halford titles were acquired January 2006, and they will be the first music releases to possess The Metal God's new corporate imprint: 'Metal God Entertainment' (MGE) an entity which will act as exclusive production company and label for Rob's future solo music and film releases. Under new licenses, much of Rob's existing and new titles will release through global-label partners whom have worked previously with The Metal God. Additional details available late-summer 2006.

The Roy Z. Produced Halford titles: 'Resurrection' (2000) and 'Live Insurrection' (2001) have been Re-Mastered. Roy and John Baxter (Rob Halford's Manager / Executive Producer) recruited Denmark Producer / Mixer Tue Madsen to Re-Mix and Master one of Rob Halford's finest
releases: 'Crucible' (2002). Additional details available late-summer 2006.

In 2007, Metal God Entertainment (MGE) will release: 'Fight, War Of Words - The Film.' Recorded throughout 1992 and 1993, this 5.1 surround-sound film presents a view of Rob Halford as he makes his decision to leave Heavy Metal legends Judas Priest, record and tour with his first solo band: 'Fight.' The band's original audio-demonstration recordings (1992) will appear on a separate Fight soundtrack release. You can watch a promotional trailer for "Fight, War Of Words - The Film" here.

Also in 2007, Metal God Entertainment (MGE) will release: 'Halford - Live at Rock In Rio 2001'. The formation of Rob Halford's new Heavy Metal band (Halford) is chronicled from studio to road in 5.1 surround sound. After releasing 'Resurrection' (2000) Halford screams through a 95-city, world-wide concert tour. The band's final-tour performance at Brazil's Rock in Rio III (2001) festival in front of more than a quarter-million Metal fans presents an up-close view of one of Metal's hardest working and innovative bands. The film's audio-only soundtrack
release: Halford - Live at Rock In Rio III - has been Produced by Roy Z. You can watch a promotional trailer for "Halford - Live at Rock In Rio 2001" here.

The anticipated Halford studio album 'Halford IV' is being rescheduled as Rob is in studio with Judas Priest collaborating on their 2007 release and subsequent tour. Additional 'Halford IV' details available summer 2008.

Halford departed Judas Priest in 1992 to pursue a solo career during which he has released seven albums thus far. He formed an uncompromising new band called Fight which released 'War of Words' (1993), 'Mutations' (1994) and 'A Small Deadly Space' (1995). Up next was the Two project with Trent Reznor at the production helm. Two released the experimental, industrial rock-flavored 'Voyeurs' (1998). The Metal God realized he missed writing, recording and performing the kind of Heavy Metal he helped invent, and the result was the formation of Halford. After 12 long years, Halford reunited with Judas Priest in the summer of 2003.
