This week has been the motherload for heavy metal collectors as three of the heavy weights have announced reissues from their catalogs of classic albums, Ozzy Osbourne, Iron Maiden and now Judas Priest. Well, to be fair, this is the third outing for Priest, who re-released four other classics early last year and another four in the fall.

The third and final wave of the Judas Priest re-masters is scheduled to be released via Columbia/Legacy in early March (March 4th in Germany, TBA everywhere else). There will be only two unreleased studio songs between them -- "All Fired Up" (Turbo) and "Living Bad Dreams" (Painkiller) – with live tracks making up the bulk of the rest of bonus material. The albums that will be reissued in March are Turbo, Priest...Live!, Ram It Down, and Painkiller.

The complete list of bonus tracks for the next wave of re-masters is as follows:

Turbo:
All Fired Up (previously unreleased)
Locked In (previously unreleased, live)

Priest...Live!:
Screaming For Vengeance (previously unreleased, live)
Rock Hard, Ride Free (previously unreleased, live)
Hell Bent For Leather (previously unreleased, live)

Ram It Down:
Night Comes Down (previously unreleased, live)
Bloodstone (previously unreleased, live)

Painkiller:
Living Bad Dreams (previously unreleased)
Leather Rebel (previously unreleased, live)

In related news, former Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford recently conducted a chat via the official Halford web site in which he confirmed that he is going to be penning an autobiography in the near future. “I'm hoping to put the Metal God book together at some point soon. My manager Rod Smallwood was here in the studio the other day and we discussed it again.”

Halford also described the sound of the in-progress sophomore Halford studio effort. “I'd say this is the best metal album I've ever made as far as it being a major step forward in the growth of the band the songs are way more complex and more interesting from many angles,” said Haloford. “The album is dynamically different than anything I've done before. It'll take all of you a bit of time to figure out the dynamics.”
