K.K. Downing’s (Ex-Judas Priest) golf and leisure resort plan come to an end 

October 11th, 2017

According to The Times out of the UK, former Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing – who left the band in April 2011 – has had his estate at Astbury Hall in south Shropshire, England, collapse into administration. It was immediately put up for sale with an asking price of more than £10 million. Downing had planned to build a leisure resort around his countryside golf course on the 320 acre estate, including forty holiday homes, a hotel, spa and another nine-hole course.

Administrators from FRP Advisory blamed “tougher economic times within the wider corporate hospitality market,” which had put “unsustainable pressure on the cashflow of the estate under its current financial structure.”

Judas Priest – Live in Halifax, Nov 10th 2015

Judas Priest

Still delivering the goods

Scotiabank Centre, Halifax, NS Canada

Review by EvilG, Photos by Celtic Bob

Judas Priest - before the curtain falls

Judas Priest – before the curtain fell

“It took us 40 years to get here”
– Rob Halford

For the first time in their lengthy career, the Metal Gods came to Atlantic Canada for a single show in Halifax. Rather than lament about their absence from the other Atlantic Canadian provinces (Newfoundland & Labrador, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island) on this, or any other tour, we shall focus on the fact that they finally came to our part of Canada!

Wacken Open Air 2015

September 29th, 2015

Wacken-Open-Air-2015

Wacken being sold out is a kind of mystery, for sure. The event is somehow sold out every year, but this year’s sell out wasn’t a surprise as Savatage with Trans Siberian Orchestra and Judas Priest were headliners. Thousands and thousands of metal fans from every corner of the world arrived at Wacken to have fun and enjoy metal. Instead the weather gods didn’t show much support towards the festival and all its visitors. The hard rains literally ruined the ground and soil of the festival area. The whole Wacken village and large area of fields became the ultimate mud war field. The weekend at Wacken was one hell of a surviving camp.

Despite the tremendous problems and brutal field of mud, the people still gathered to witness the return and resurrection of Savatage and the massive show from Trans Siberian Orchestra.

Swedenrock 2015 – Sölvesborg Sweden

July 11th, 2015

Sweden Rock 2015

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY ARTO LEHTINEN, MARKO SYRJALA AND PATRICK CLEMENT

The Finnish Metal-Rules.com commando team made their annual road trip to Sweden Rock. Metal-Rules.com has covered Sweden Rock since 2001. The  2015 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock. Over 70 bands offered one hell of an experience for the attendees during the four day festival. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past ten years always being sold out. This year wasn’t an exception as the fest was sold out despite the lousy economic situation worldwide. It has become quite logical for us to give an in depth article of several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. The  weather was tremendous, despite being quite windy and cold on the opening day. But we were there for bands, not for having some beach party crap. Unfortunately, we are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading experience… Rock on!

From Hell’s Heart: Top 6 songs about metal!

May 7th, 2015

From Hells Heart

From Hell’s Heart:
What are the top 6 songs about METAL?

This week we reflect upon songs that are about the very thing we all love – heavy metal.  Typically, these songs have the word “metal” somewhere in their title. Some may not, but for our purposes, we’ve excluded any songs where the title/topic is “rock”.  As much as “Long Live Rock n’ Roll” is an awesome song, or as much as there are other killer songs using the more generic term “rock”, it is not considered here. So here’s what we came up with…

From Hell’s Heart: Best Album Intros

April 23rd, 2015

From Hells Heart

From Hell’s Heart: Best Album Intros

Some album intros are totally annoying and you always skip them when you put on the album. However, some are excellent, set the mood for the listening experience, and are totally memorable. Those are the ones we focus on for this week.

For our selections, we limit the choices to ALBUM intros, not just any ole song intro. It can be a spoken intro, sound effects, or a shorter musical piece…but is not a “song” or a part of a song, it is a stand alone track on the album. We asked our staff to give us their top 5 selections and some thoughts on them. Check out the results below….

Atkins May Project Feat. Original Judas Priest Singer Al Atkins Release New Anthology With Unreleased Bonus Track

March 27th, 2015

AMP anthology pic med res

The Atkins May Project, featuring original Judas Priest vocalist Al Atkins and guitar virtuoso Paul May return with this superb compilation. For the last four years the rock world has been buzzing about former Judas Priest vocal legend and Holy Rage heavy metal frontman Al Atkins and Christian guitarist and music artist Paul May’s new music. Together they have created three excellent records available on Gonzo Multimedia. There are enough doses of melody and metal madness to entice all fans of the genre, and while it is solid, honest, working-class heavy metal, it also has its roots in contemporary metal with some fine axe-work and killer choruses.

MADE OF METAL – A CASUAL GUIDE TO THE SOLO MUSIC OF JUDAS PRIEST’S ROB HALFORD

December 19th, 2014
MADE OF METAL – A CASUAL GUIDE TO THE SOLO MUSIC OF JUDAS PRIEST’S ROB HALFORD

MADE OF METAL – A CASUAL GUIDE TO THE SOLO MUSIC OF JUDAS PRIEST’S ROB HALFORD

Rob Halford is a heavy metal icon and his influence on the genre is immeasurable. Bands such as Anthrax, Pantera, Slayer and Metallica have cited Rob Halford and Judas Priest as a major inspiration on their own music. This book isn’t about Judas Priest as such, though it inevitably touches on the subject, but rather Halford’s varied solo music.

Made Of Metal explores the solo music of one of the greatest singers of all time. From Halford’s first post-Judas Priest project Fight through to his controversial collaboration with Trent Reznor with the album Voyeurs right up to his metal rebirth with his self-titled band, Halford, this handy guide celebrates Halford’s creativity and love of all things heavy metal.

From the author of the acclaimed The Story Of Judas Priest – Defenders Of The Faith, Rock Landmarks – Judas Priest’s British Steel and Dawn Of The Metal Gods – My Life In Judas Priest And Heavy Metal (with Al Atkins), Made Of Metal is the first book to exclusively explore the solo music of the Metal God himself, Mr. Rob Halford. Made Of Metal celebrates Halford’s musical legacy and offers titbits of information and trivia about his career as well as a biography, discographies, a timeline, reviews and tributes from leading musicians and music writers. There are also many previously unpublished live photographs of the heavy metal icon.

JUDAS PRIEST’s 2005 CD, “Angel of Retribution”, premiered with 58,000 copies in the U.S. to debut at No. 13.
