Exclusive: Rob Halford’s black metal album
Judas Priest singer Rob Halford talks exclusively to Metal Hammer about his black metal plans.
Is it true that youre considering making a black metal record?
Oh yeah, some day I’d love to but it’s all about finding the time. I’m metal 24-7. Ihsahn [guitarist/vocalist of Norwegian church-burners Emperor] has been a good friend of mine for many, many years and we’ve had conversations about trying to do something together. A few of the Dimmu Borgir guys are also urging me to try. So if I did give it a go, it would be with guys of that calbre. I’ll be honest, I love that music but I’ve no idea what venturing into that territory might sound like. Ihsahn’s attitude is, ‘So why not have a go?’ And he’s absolutely right. That’s what life’s all about, what’s the point of staying in your safe little comfort zone?
