Tom Allom was behind the board for every Priest album from 1979’s Unleashed In The East through to 1988’s Ram It Down; as well 2009’s A Touch of Evil: Live. Andy Sneap is known for his work with Accept, Arch Enemy, Kreator, Megadeth, Nevermore, Testament, and many more. Mike Exeter earned a name for himself with Black Sabbath.

Earlier this year, Rob Halford spoke exclusively with BraveWords about the band’s new album and follow-up to 2014’s Redeemer Of Souls saying, “You’re going to love this one. I’m not just saying that, but I know really well, you are going to love this one.”

Neither a title or release date for the forthcoming Judas Priest album have been announced yet. Stay tuned for updates.
