The opener for the new album from Judas Priest is entitled "Dragonaut" and after a brief introduction to the song from guitarist Richie Faulkner, you get some classic Priest in your speakers. Take a listen, chief.

Borrowing a page from the old school tactics, Priest digs the roots back up from years' past and shows you why they're still very, very metal.

The new song is, as aforementioned, the lead off song for the upcoming album Redeemer of Souls, which hits stores across the nation on the 8th of July.
