Rob Halford Announces Box Set

For you Judas Priest completests out there, “The Metal God” Rob Halford has just announced that he’ll be releasing The Complete Albums Collection on May 19th.

The 14-CD set includes four albums by Fight, as well as the lone album by the industrial-inspired 2wo (which featured guitarist John 5, and saw Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor serve as executive producer), plus 7 titles from the solo band Halford, which saw the Metal God gloriously return to pure, unadulterated metal.

The Complete Albums Collection is currently available for pre-order at Amazon.
