Born Robert John Arthur Halford on August 25, 1951, Rob Halford rocketed to fame as the lead singer for the Grammy Award-winning heavy metal band JUDAS PRIEST. One of the genre’s most powerful, distinctive and influential vocalists, Halford set the standard for generations of metal singers.
After leaving JUDAS PRIEST in 1992, Halford formed the band FIGHT and, between 1993 and 1995, recorded two albums, War Of Words and A Small Deadly Space, and an EP, Mutations, with the band.
Following FIGHT, Halford moved into the realm of industrial metal with his TWO project. In 2000, he launched the straight-ahead no-nonsense pure metal ensemble HALFORD.
The Sony/Legacy release agreement includes virtually all of Rob Halford’s work with FIGHT, TWO and HALFORD from 1992 onward.
Coming on March 31, Columbia/Legacy Recordings will release The Essential Rob Halford (2 CD; 30 tracks).
