Judas Priest To Release Battle Cry, Their 2015 Live Set From Wacken Open Air Festival

Judas Priest Battle CryJudas Priest has had a wildly successful career. Since the release of their first album, Rocka Rolla in 1974, they have steadily captured attention as the years passed. After only two albums (Rocka Rolla, Sad Wings of Destiny – 1976), the band signed a long-running deal with Columbia Records which exists to this day. Many of their albums are considered classic metal sets that stand a strong test of time.

On March 25, Columbia Records will release a live set from the band, Battle Cry. Battle Cry was recorded from the UK band’s August 1, 2015 performance set at the Wacken Open Air Festival in Wacken, Germany. This Festival is considered the largest Heavy Metal show in the world. It originally started in 1980, and has since attracted around 80,000 visitors per year. It has gone from single stage shows to multiple stage shows over as many as four days. The 2015 Wacken Open Air Festival attracted many Metal fans who wanted to see Judas Priest in this unique setting.

Battle Cry will release on CD, DVD, and BD (Blu-ray) and will contain a generous helping of Judas Priest with plenty of loved Judas Priest tunes. The CD will provide fifteen performance songs (see list below). The BD and DVD will add in three bonus performance video tracks from the set.
