    • Although Judas Priest has accomplished just about everything a heavy metal band could possibly hope for, Rob Halford and company have yet to tackle a concept album. Soon, the group will be able to check that off its to-do list, as Priest is currently hard at work penning an album that will tell the story of the 16th century French prophet Nostradamus.

    • "We're writing right now," Halford tells "I'm here in the Midlands near Birmingham, with Glenn [Tipton] and K.K. [Downing]. The ideas are just so strong -- we've already been putting down the music. It's incredibly exciting and inspiring to be involved. We're getting incredible results at these early stages."

    • Telling the tale of Nostradamus against a hard rock soundtrack will certainly be daunting, but Priest is up for the challenge. "It's going to be a monumental task. We've written about characters in our music over the decades -- 'Loch Ness,' 'The Sentinel,' 'Sinner,'" Halford says. "It's just like a natural progressive step for us. The exciting thing is that we're going to be performing the whole piece live on stage when we go out, hopefully in early 2007."

    The Judas Priest Shrine is proud to announce that Bryan Reesman, noted music journalist for magazines such as Goldmine and Metal Edge, has been generous enough to provide The Shrine with two feature articles published in Goldmine Magazine.
