Rob Halford says that heavy metal will never die

Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford said the current metal scene is in good hands and insists the genre will not disappear soon.


When asked if a band that starts in 2018 has a chance to impact the way Judas Priest did, Halford said:

“It depends on what you understand as success. How do you define it? Is success a platinum album? Is it filling Madison Square Garden (famous home of concerts in the United States)? Popularity, disks sold? I do not know, but it does not matter to me. Metal will always be there. There will always be a new band. There’s probably a band in England that I do not even know, either in Germany, Japan or South America. That’s the emotion. ”

Asked if the Metal scene is currently at a good level, Halford added, “Definitely. There is always a new generation out there.

But the cool thing, watching it over the decades, is that people always return to the source, to the roots of Heavy Metal, to Black Sabbath, to Judas Priest. ”

Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
