JUDAS PRIEST frontman Rob Halford and his Metal God Entertainment have announced their new United States film and music distributor Super D Independent Distribution of Irvine, California. "Metal God Essentials - Volume 1" is Super D's first new Halford title, set to debut September 11, 2007.

"Metal God Essentials - Volume 1" features 13 dynamic heavy metal tracks from Rob Halford's FIGHT and HALFORD solo releases. The HALFORD band's first new songs in more than four years "Forgotten Generation" and "Drop Out" are also featured; as is an exclusive 2007 remix from FIGHT co-producer Attie Bauw "Hypocrisy U.S. Remix".

Super D is the only worldwide one-stop distributor of CD music and DVD movie titles servicing more than 24 countries. Super D's U.S. release of "Metal God Essentials - Volume 1" includes a full-color, 20-page expanded booklet and bonus Metal God DVD featuring eight HALFORD promotional videos in a double-jewel case. A limited and numbered edition, with enhanced eight-panel digipak, including an original Rob Halford autograph, will be available for a very short period (edition: 5,000).

"Super D Independent Distribution grew its core business distributing a lot of metal music," says Rob Halford. "I am looking forward to re-connecting and meeting many of Super D's accounts. This relationship brings a new and powerful U.S. partner to Metal God Entertainment's new film and music releases being produced for the global rock and metal audiences. Collectively, the relationship will bring Super D and I closer to my retail consumers throughout the U.S., and that has been one of the most important elements of my search given the many changes seen at the retail-level."

This fall, Metal God Entertainment and Super D will debut "Fight War Of Words - The Film" a 5.1 documentary and concert DVD of Rob Halford's decision to leave metal legends JUDAS PRIEST in 1992 and embark upon an ambitious and un-equaled solo career. Release configurations include a bonus CD, "War Of Words - Remixed / Remastered 2007".
