Already known as one of the most influential Heavy Metal bands to ever grace the genre, British rockers Judas Priest are being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame this year after years on the waiting list marking not only a win for Priest, but for "Heavy Metal here in the U.S. and around the world. This is just the power and the reach that the Hall of Fame has," Halford said. The band is currently working on new material to follow-up 2018's Firepower, which should arrive by 2024. "It’s not 'Firepower Number Two,' that’s all I can say," Halford told Metal Crypt earlier this month.
