So Rob is cleaning out the vaults for a box set. It ain't cheap though - $119.98 on Amazon as a preorder right now. Ouch!

JUDAS PRIEST Frontman ROB HALFORD To Release The Complete Albums Collection Box Set In May 2017

As Judas PriestĎs frontman, Rob Halford became one of the defining voices of heavy metal, but the powerhouse singer also has released a variety of interesting albums outside of his famous band. Now, a new box set called The Complete Albums Collection gathers together 12 albums that the Metal God issued with his solo band and various side projects. Look for it to hit stores May 19th.

Robís solo career began in 1992, when he left Judas Priest and formed the thrash-metal outfit Fight. The box set contains that groupís three studio albums, as well as K5: The War of Words Demos, a collection of 1992 recordings first released in 2007. After Fight, Halford formed the short-lived industrial-metal band 2wo, which also featured current Rob Zombie guitarist John 5. The bandís sole studio effort, 1998ís Voyeurs, also is included in The Complete Albums Collection.

Rounding out the box set are seven albums by the band Halford, which marked Robís return to traditional metal. These include four studio albums ó 2000ís Resurrection, 2002ís Crucible, 2009ís Halford III: Winter Songs and 2010ís Halford IV: Made of Metal ó as well as three live albums, two of which are two-CD set.

Rob returned to Judas Priest in 2004, and his main musical focus since then has been the influential U.K. band, but The Complete Albums Collection show just how expansive the singerís talents are.

Following is the full list of discs included on The Complete Albums Collection:

Fight
War of Words (1993)
Mutations (1994)
A Small Deadly Space (1995)
K5: The War of Words Demos (2007, recorded in 1992)

2wo
Voyeurs (1998)

Halford
Resurrection (2000)
Live Insurrection (2001) (two CDs)
Crucible (2002)
Halford III: Winter Songs (2009)
Halford IV: Made of Metal (2010)
Live in Anaheim (2010, recorded in 2003) (two CDs)
Live at Saitama Super Arena (2011)

That sounds very interesting. I wonder what the track listing will include ? I have the first 2 Halford cds but not the ones with the extra tracks. If those are on there I'd consider getting this.


Also, I wonder if this is on it :





And that is a bit pricey.

Sorry Rob, but I'll pass. I have no use for Two's Voyeurs, Fight's Mutations or Small Deadly Space or any of the live material that I don't already own.

I have what I want from these so the extras would have to be pretty amazing for me to get this and it needs to come down in price.

Same here. Except for the last 2 live albums, I already have these releases. I have a feeling the price will come down too. You can still purchase most of those albums used for a fraction of a cost.

I have some of these albums already and re-issuing them on vinyl won't do much for me, since I do not collect vinyl. Still a cool way to get all of his Halford's solo material in one shot.

This is a CD box set, not vinyl.

I already own all of these except the War of Words demos (which is unnecessary), Winter Songs (which is retarded), & the last two live albums (which was already done).

Now if it contained the original recordings of Voyeurs, which Rob has claimed were heavier & more guitar oriented, then I'd probably just download that online somewhere.

Hmmm, I'm not sure. If this was what he was talking about, then it sounds like a less layered version of what was actually released. Not heavier, just less produced.

Still a fun album though. I liked it as it was just fine.

Those demos are what Halford released as a free download from his website years ago. My guess is they're the demos he was talking about, but there may very well be others.
