Listen to Judas Priest on iHeartRadio

Judas Priest is one step closer to releasing new music. 

Frontman Rob Halford tells that guitarist Glenn Tipton has been "looking over" the mastering sessions for the band's upcoming album, which  "is finished."  He adds that the group's new music is very "heavy." 

But Halford doesn't say when fans can expect to find Priest's new album in stores.  He just says it's "coming out at some point." 

The new disc will be Judas Priest's follow up to their 2008 effort Nostradamus.  It'll also be the band's first album with guitarist Richie Faulkner.
