It's October 4 and maybe you're not quite ready for holiday music yet, but maybe you are ready for a Rob Halford of Judas Priest holiday album? Whether you are or you aren't, here it is. Celestial is Halford's second album of Christmas music, with heavy metal interpretations of traditional classics like “Away in a Manger”, “The First Noel”, “Good King Wenceslas” and more, as well as for original songs including "Donner and Blitzen" and the title track. You can listen to Rob's take on hymn "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," and "Donner and Blitzen," right now, below.

Judas Priest were on tour in North America this summer and they've got dates in Europe scheduled for 2020 -- just keep your cellphone out of Rob's personal space while he's performing.
