JUDAS PRIEST's New Song "Never The Heroes" Is Straight Up A Classic Heavy Metal Anthem
Judas Priest's new album Firepower is out on March 9 and I'm pretty sure it's going to be one of the best albums the band has put out in quite some time. The previous singles have been nothing less than stunning, but the new song "Never The Heroes" is just a sing-along heavy metal classic that basically demands to be blasted in your car, in your house, and pretty much anywhere else even if it's going to piss some people off.
Here's what the band had to say about the track.
"Never The Heroes" is about the courageous men and women that enter war. Never trained to be heroes, but becoming heroic due to their actions and sacrifices doing their duty for their people and country. It resonates, as there is a hero in all of us, and in times of struggle we can be strong and united, conquering our own challenges and helping others.
