The Metallic Onslaught conducted an interview with JUDAS PRIESTESS, New York City's sensational all-girl tribute to metal masters JUDAS PRIEST, this past Saturday, July 13 at the Women's Right 2 Rock festival at the Clarence Hotel in Seneca Falls, New York. You can now watch the chat below.
JUDAS PRIESTESS was recently joined by Rena Sands, wife of DREAM THEATER guitarist John Petrucci and former guitarist in the all-female heavy metal band MEANSTREAK.
Rena and John live in St. James, New York and have three children together — twins Samantha and Renato, and Kiarra.
Formed in 2009, JUDAS PRIESTESS has a worldwide reputation with acclamation from press and fans alike. With favorable notice from members of JUDAS PRIEST themselves, notably Rob Halford, K.K. Downing, and JUDAS PRIEST original founder Al Atkins, these women have successfully demolished anyone's preconceived idea of what a "tribute" band is, and especially an all-female tribute. They have carved a very special and distinct place for themselves in the over-saturated world of rock and roll with their original interpretations of the classic metal repertoire of that influential and legendary band. The stellar performances by the ladies of JUDAS PRIESTESS always wow the crowd with both blistering talent and the unmistakable hard-rockin' look that defines who they are.
Performance (May 18 at Hard Rock Cafe in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina)
