judas priest




Judas Priest will release a new compilation album called 'The Chosen Few' on October 11th via Legacy/Sony.

Some of the biggest names in the Heavy Metal world picked their favorite Judas Priest songs for the 17-track album, including Ozzy Osbourne, Slash, Metallica's James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, Alice Cooper and Slipknot's Corey Taylor.

"This is a collection of songs chosen by our friends and respected peers," Priest frontman Rob Halford told Rolling Stone. "So we hope all the Metal maniacs out there will rock out to the tunes enjoyed by Metal legends."

Also included in the set are explanations from each artist about their selection, including Taylor gushing that Priest's early MTV anthem, 'You've Got Another Thing Coming' caused the group to become "the blueprint for the ultimate Heavy Metal band."

Elsewhere, Ozzy Osbourne finds himself bewildered by a high-pitched note sung by Halford at the beginning of 'The Ripper'. "Fuckin hell! That note is probably just below what only dogs can hear".

NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston.
