Praise the metal gods! We've got a new track snippet from Judas Priest's epic new album 'Redeemer of Souls.' This new piece is from 'Halls of Valhalla', the upcoming album's third track.

Judas Priest have already gifted fans with two songs -- the 'Redeemer of Souls' title track and 'March of the Damned'. Fans have been overjoyed with the new Priest cuts, but in this new clip of 'Halls of Valhalla,' you'll get a much better look into how epic Judas Priest's 17th studio album really is.

"'Halls of Valhalla' -- it's more metal than metal," says singer Rob Halford. "It's just an amazing characteristic statement of the same theme of say, for example, 'The Sentinel' or the 'Painkiller' character. It's just a very unusual song for Priest."

Guitarist Glenn Tipton adds, "If you listen to 'Halls of Valhalla', the ascending note that he [Halford] does in that; you wouldn't find many singers who could do that."

From there on, the track kicks in with amazing guitar work. Laid over a fat main riff, the soloing depicted in 'Halls of Valhalla' takes hold of the song. While the clip fades out, fans are treated to more of Halford's vocals going into a strong, multilayered section.

In more good news from Priest, the release of 'Redeemer of Souls' has been pushed ahead one week! The album is now scheduled to come out July 8! To order a copy, click here.
