Judas Priest to celebrate 50th anniversary with massive boxset
Judas Priest have announced a huuuuuge limited-edition boxset celebrating their 50th anniversary.
The Birmingham metal legends will be sharing 50 Heavy Metal Years Of Music on October 15 via Sony, with the release including every official live and studio album to date, plus a whopping 13 unreleased discs.
“Judas Priest’s curated box set representing 50 heavy metal years is the ultimate treasure trove defining the band’s unwavering commitment to keeping and defending the heavy metal faith,” enthuses Rob Halford.
Glenn Tipton adds: “If there’s one boxset you should have in your heavy metal collection it should be this one – it’s immortal, proclaiming and truly representing metal for over 50 years, flying the flag and proudly leading the way inspiring many bands throughout the years. This 42-CD selection says it all – it’s a big part of metal history and as such will live forever…”
“Amazing!” says Ian Hill. “Fifty years of metal crammed into a small box!”
