KK’s Priest: New Album ‘Sermons of the Sinner’ Out Now
KK’s PRIEST, the band comprised of renowned former Judas Priest guitarist, KK Downing and former vocalist Tim “Ripper” Owens, along with bandmates Tony Newton, AJ Mills and Sean Elg is pleased to release their highly-anticipated debut album, SERMONS OF THE SINNER . The album comes out via Explorer1 Music Group/EX1 Records this Friday, October 1, 2021.
"Does this sound like classic Priest? Yup. Does it maybe sound like British Steel? It definitely does at times, and Sad Wings… and Screaming for Vengeance. But is it still original? It absolutely is. And that’s really why this record hits the mark so well. It’s so familiar, yet fresh at the exact same time. KK and friends really hit the sweet spot here." - Metal Insider
Fans are able to order the debut album in various configurations including an exclusive limited edition autographed Metal Vinyl (Silver Disc) with bonus CD Album, via the band’s online store HERE. The album can be heard on all global digital streaming partners as well.
KK’s Priest has unleashed an album with a modern sound that hearkens back to what fans have always loved about KK Downing and his music and which still sounds fresh including the high-speed album opener “Hellfire Thunderbolt”, the title track “Sermons of the Sinner,” and “Wild And Free” which revel in the passion and excess that metal fans embrace. The guitar interplay is intense and inspiring, and the band is firing on all cylinders. SERMONS OF THE SINNER is a musical statement that KK Downing's heavy metal ride is far from over after his extended hiatus. “The whole concept is the fact that I continue proudly to be who I am and what I am and do what I do,” declares KK. “It's been nearly 10 years. I'm back making music.”
