Judas Priestistä vuonna 2010 eronnut bändin perustajajäsen K.K. Downing julkaisee ensimmäisen sooloalbuminsa ”Sermons Of The Sinner” bändinsä KK´s Priest kanssa 1.10.2021.
Kanadalainen The Metal Voice -media haastatteli Judas Priestissäkin vaikuttanutta vokalistia Tim ”Ripper” Owensia, jossa mies summaa KK´s Priest -yhtyeen nykytilaa ja albumin odotuksia.
Ripper kertoo tulisiko uuden ”Sermons Of The Sinner” -albumin olla jatkoa Judas Priestin ”Demolition”-albumille:
”I don’t know. The thing about Judas Priest is they change and did whatever they wanted because they were Judas Priest. Every record sounded different except for ’Screaming for Vengeance’ and ’Defenders of the Faith’. Their last album was fantastic but it didn’t really sound like Judas Priest because they didn’t really write it. It was a great record but everything sounds different. What would have been next after Demolition I don’t know? This new record (KK’s) well could have been. I think what this record (KK’s Priest) shows is what kind of record K.K. wanted to make with Judas Priest because this is how he writes. This shows you why records become what they are. This new record shows just so much of K.K. Downing. KK wrote the record that he wanted to write and he wanted to write it for me to sing. ”
Ripper kertoo uudesta levystä:
”There are a lot of layers, there are a lot of epic kinds of songs is how I like to describe it. There is a lot going on. Actually it goes back to early Judas Priest listen to Rocka Rolla. Rocka Rolla was filled with that stuff and guess who wrote most of that album K.K. Downing. The song ’Return of the Sentinel’ is one of my favorite songs off the new album, it is a little more musical in the classic Metal way. I think K.K. has taken ’Sad Wings of Destiny’ and ’Rocka Rolla’ influences and just brought it to nowadays.”
