Rob Halford Interview — ”Creep Show’
Everyone knows multifaceted metal icon Rob Halford has launched a clothing line, Metal God Apparel, and has a new Christmas album out, ‘Winter Songs.’ But who knew the music industry veteran has been throwing around the idea of working on a black metal side project with ex-Emperor vocalist and guitarist Ihsahn?
Halford revealed that nugget of news to Noisecreep during the latest edition of ”Creep Show.’ And the Metal God didn’t just talk about his own hopes and dreams. He actively contributed to the news segment and the album portion of the show as well.
In addition to Halford, the panel for this week’s show also featured Revolver senior writer Jon Wiederhorn, Noisecreep news guy and freelancer Chris Harris, ‘Nights With Alice Cooper’ radio show producer Katherine Turman and black metal specialist Kim Kelly.
In news, we discussed the future of Aerosmith, details about the guest vocalists for Slash’s upcoming solo album and why Rammstein‘s new album, ‘Liebe ist für alle da,’ was banned in their homeland of Germany. We also talked about Avenged Sevenfold and As I Lay Dying recording new albums and the latest in the sad story of the disappearance of Metallica fan Morgan Harrington.
Albums reviewed this week included the quirky, groovin’ and eternally rockin’ self-titled debut from Them Crooked Vultures, the fiercely melodic experimental metal of the Devin Townsend Project‘s ‘Addicted’ and the Meshuggah-meets-Killswitch Engage pummel-fest of the Empire Shall Fail‘s ‘Awaken.’
Then it was time for Halford to talk about his line of T-shirts, his Christmas album and the future plans for Judas Priest. Along the way, he revealed how he and Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor hooked up in 1998 for the side project Two — and the worst onstage accident he’s ever had. Don your studded leather and get ready for the ”Creep Show.’
