On November 21, Rob Halford will debut the first new Halford song in more than four years, "Forgotten Generation," on iTunes. The metal god wrote the tune and another new cut, "Drop Out," with the Halford band this year during downtime from working with Judas Priest on their upcoming album Nostradamus. "We just thought it would be nice to offer fans an earful of new Halford stuff and let everybody know we're still around," he said. Both new tracks will be available on Halford: Metal God Essentials - Volume 1, which comes out November 28. The album will contain 15 songs spanning Halford's solo career and will also be available exclusively through iTunes. Also on November 28, Halford will release the entire Halford catalog (Resurrection, Live Insurrection and Crucible), plus the Fight demo K5 the War of Words Demos. "We love iTunes," Halford said. "It's a tremendous format and they're really looking after the Metal God in a really great way."

I can think of only two words to describe Rob Halford...Metal God....!!!!!!!!!!!! even if he is a pillow pincher...!!! He can still kick some metal a$$.... I have been a Judas Priest fan since Rocka Rolla and Halfords solo projects ... and its all been good....Not quite as good as British Steel or Screaming For Vengence but still better than alot of other "$hit" that some people call metal... Halfords voice IS metal...much the same way Dios voice IS metal......
am I right or am I right..?

I seen my first, of 3 Priest, shows when I was about 15...Defenders of the Faith tour....what a kick a$$ show.!!!!!!!!..And after all these years...and all the albums and the whole Ripper Owens thing...Halfords solo outings....I still feel that Screaming for Vengence is by far their greatest studio recording.. and it seems I am not the only one with that opinion... \m/
