Rob Halford Is Feeling The Holiday Spirit

You wouldn't expect Rob Halford to be one of those people who plays Christmas music in October, but the Judas Priest frontman is set to release a holiday album this month.

This week, Halford released a hard-rocking cover of "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing", from his upcoming album Celestial.

So why a Christmas album?  Halford says "Metal maniacs - as we call ourselves - are just as ready for the holidays as everybody else"

Celestial is also a family affair - Halford's brother, sister, and nephew all appear on the album, which will be out Oct. 18th.
