70 musicians and fans took part in greeting Metal God Rob Halford of Judas Priest with his 70th Birthday on August 25th, 2021. The video collaboration has been organised and posted on the Metal Pilgrim.
The video depicts both musicians and fans from around the globe wishing Robert Halford a Happy Birthday, as well as some of the most memorable moments from the Metal God’s 50+ year-long career.
The project included such musicians and Schmier (Destruction), Mia Wallace (Nervosa, Abbath), Ross Friedman (ex-Manowar, The Dictators, Ross The Boss Band), as well as members of the bands Sirenia, Alien Weaponry, Hell:On (who did a marvellous cover on Judas Priest’s The Hellion), Witherfall, Scar of the Sun, Marianas Rest, Numenor, NorthTale, Ektomorf, Elvenking, Maestrick and famous bloggers and other Metal-related personalities.
The video also included the audio of the first-ever recorded Rob Halford appearance with Judas Priest on May, 1973, and 5 of the most memorable Rob Halford live screams on stage with the band throughout the years. In addition, the video featured bits of many of Rob Halford’s interviews throughout the years, organised in such way to tell the story of both Rob Halford and Judas Priest, starting with the idea behind the band’s name and going all the way to most recent years.
Overall the video features people from all over the world, including but not limited to countries like Iran, Japan, Peru and many others.
The editorial team of Metal Blare would like to join the many musicians and fans and congratulate Rob Halford on behalf of our team, and wish Metal God many more years of rocking the world together with Judas Priest. We cannot wait to hear new music from Judas Priest and see the band on the road once again.
