Rob Halfordthe Metal God and vocalist for Judas Priest is back with another fascinating and insightful book entitled “Biblical: Rob Halford’s Heavy Metal Scriptures”. It comes hot on the heels of his 2020 tell-all book autobiography, “Confess!” In which Rob shares his life story from beginning to end in a linear approach, from growing up in the Walsall, UK, hiding his sexuality, forming Judas Priestwriting albums, touring the world, leaving Priest in 1992, publicly coming out as gay, and rejoining the band in 2003.
In this latest book, Rob delivers the scriptures of his life’s work with a clever and unique twist. It’s an open narrative of the ups and downs Judas Priest‘s 50-year career set to Bible-Esque-themed chapters. The Book of Pilgrimage is a hard look into the challenges of touring and the preparation that goes into it; The Book of Psalms and Testaments touches upon his method of lyric writing, creating album titles, and artwork; The Book Disciples is about his loyal fans and the best way they should ask for selfies and autographs! He shares these “gospel truths” with humor and open candor without leaving out any risqué details.
“Biblical: Rob Halford’s Heavy Metal Scriptures” (order it THERE) is a manifesto in which Rob shares his opinions, memories, and anecdotes regarding every element of the rock n’ roll world. It is told in Rob‘s relaxed tone, as if he is speaking directly with you one-on-one while mixing serious and in-depth topics with whimsical reflections on life’s lessons.
