JUDAS PRIEST - Sänger Rob Halford spricht in einem Video-Interview über die Botschaft, die hinter der neuen Single "Lightning Strike" steckt


 
Vor wenigen Tagen erschien mit "Lightning Strike" die erste Single vom kommenden Album "Firepower", welches am 9. März 2018 in die Läden kommt.
Im einem Video-Interview erklärt Halford die Metaphern, die er verwendet bei einer Geschichte wie beim Song "Lightning Strike", wo es um die Manipulation von Autoritätspersonen geht. "Firepower" ist bereits das 18. Studio-Album der UK-Metal-Legende, neben der regulären CD/LP wird das Album noch als transparente 180g Doppel-LP mit bedruckten Innenhüllen und Download Card im Deluxe Gatefold, limitiert auf 500 Exemplare, erscheinen.

"Lightning Strike" Lyrics

 

I'll bring you the head of the demon
I'm peeling the skin from his face
The life that you lead is inhuman
Its cause and effects a disgrace

You're sowing the seeds of a nightmare from hell
Your prayers and your demons are tolling the bell
 
Walking through fire, fate's in my hands
Waiting for lightning to strike
Man on a wire, bearing the brand
Waiting for lightning to strike
Lightning to strike
 
Twisted dreams that are formed from illusion
The collusion of fear and torment
Decimating to stem this contusion
With a power-mad freaking intent
 
You're sowing the seeds of a nightmare from hell
Your prayers and your demons lie dead where they fell
 
Walking through fire, fate's in my hands
Waiting for lightning to strike
Man on a wire, bearing the brand
Waiting for lightning to strike
Lightning to strike
 
I'll spin the world around reeling
I have to when mankind's at stake
I might be left broken and bleeding
For it's all in the fight that we make
