Original JUDAS PRIEST Singer Says BLABBERMOUTH.NET Detractors Are 'Sad Bastards'

December 19, 2005

Original JUDAS PRIEST singer Al Atkins' official web site has been updated with the following message:

"Al wishes all his friends and fans a merry Xmas and a great New Year, even to those sad bastards who comment on Blabbermouth. [*Edit by [Atkins'] webmaster… Al? Surely you didnt mean that? Oh man, it's not their fault they have no talent, mate! They are just sad losers with major man boobs.]

"Al's off to California in January to visit the NAMM exhibition, which he as been invited to, along with Pete Emms, his bass player. He hopes to have some dates added to the new site for 2006 when they have all been confirmed."

As previously reported, Atkins has just released a new promotional DVD. Produced by Mpeguk Ltd, the DVD (released on DVD-R) includes music videos of three selected tracks off his new CD, "Demon Deceiver - The Sin Sessions": the title track, "Demon Deceiver", "Cradle to the Grave" and the JUDAS PRIEST classic "Victim of Changes". The musicians include BUDGIE guitarist Simon Lees, DANTE FOX guitarist Mike de Jager, VASELINE RATS bass player Pete MZ Emms, drummers Mick Hales and Adrian Badlands, and guitarist Chris Johnson. The videos include footage shot during the recording of the tracks at MAGNUM's Madhat Studios, JB's Live Music Venue and during Al's tour of the U.S.

Check out sample clips at www.mpeguk.com. Free downloads, including iPod downloads, will be available on the site shortly.

Al has recorded "Victim of Changes" three times on different albums over the last 15 years since he turned solo. "This time it's a much shorter and faster version than before. It's fucking awesome," Atkins said. Also appearing on the album is a song called "Drown", which is said to be a duet between Al and Kansas-based vocalist/guitarist Johnny Lokke.
