Kids That Rock: Judas Priest’s ‘Redeemer of Souls’
Introducing children to heavy metal is arguably a parent's greatest responsibility. We at Loudwire care deeply about the next generation, so we invited parents to bring their kids by for some Heavy Metal 101.
In this 'Kids That Rock' segment, we brought the title track to Judas Priest's 'Redeemer of Souls' album. After we gave these youths their first glimpse at the song's lyrics, we gave them a little pop quiz. In this original clip, a cavalcade of juveniles interpret Priest's lyrics, what the 'Redeemer of Souls' would look like, where he may live, what the kids would say if they ever came face to face with the Redeemer and much more.
Judas Priest's Rob Halford recently spoke about the 'Redeemer of Souls' album in an exclusive interview with Full Metal Jackie. "We’re still making what we feel is some of the best metal of the genre from Priest," says Halford. "So, that was where the attention was to make a record that embodies everything that you love as a Priest fan, and everything that you love about classic metal. So, it was that and it was also the word relentless — let’s keep it relentless, let’s not take any steps back. So, from the opening, thundering storm of ‘Dragonaut’ through all the way to the final rallying cry, ‘Battle Cry,’ and then the cool down song, as it’s getting to be called “Beginning of the End,” it’s just nonstop. It’s roaring, I think it really sends a strong, strong signal that Priest is back again."
Watch these seriously funny and surprisingly philosophical kids interpret Judas Priest's 'Redeemer of Souls' in the clip above!
