Judas Priest to Issue 'Battle Cry' Live Release

Judas Priest to Issue 'Battle Cry' Live Release
As previously reported, NWOBHM torch bearers Judas Priest undertook a massive world tour to support their 2014 full-length, Redeemer of Souls. If you missed out on any of the action, the band are now presenting some of the highlights via a live album/concert film package called Battle Cry. It lands on CD/DVD/Blu-ray on March 25 via Columbia Records.

While a press release explains that Rob Halford and the rest of Priest played 130 shows in 33 countries to promote their 17th full-length, the upcoming live release puts the focus on the band's appearance at Germany's famed Wacken Open Air Festival on August 1, 2015.

Performing for a crowd of 85,000 metal fans, Judas Priest played songs from their latest long-player ("Dragonaut," "Halls of Valhalla"), as well as classic cuts culled from their 40-year career, like "Breaking the Law," "Painkiller," "Hell Bent for Leather" and "You've Got Another Thing Coming."

In addition to the Wacken appearance, the DVD and Blu-ray portions of Battle Cry add live performances of "Screaming for Vengeance," "The Rage" and "Desert Plains" that were filmed at Gdansk, Poland's Ergo Arena late last year.

A full breakdown of the setlist, as well as a trailer in which Halford asks the German crowd if they're ready for some "Judas Priest-style heavy metal," can be found below.
