Judas Priest’s Rob Halford celebrates his birthday today (August 25), and he has more than earned the moniker “The Metal God” with his stunning, soaring vocals.

Halford’s voice is so incredible that is can cut through any pair of dueling guitars, but have you heard his vocals on their own?

Take a listen to the video below which isolates Halford’s vocal track on 1990’s “Painkiller” is all their brilliance.

Once again, he’s not called “The Metal God” for nothing!
