HALFORD picture
Halford is a heavy metal band formed in 1999 by Rob Halford, the lead vocalist for Judas Priest. Halford formed the band to return to his heavy metal roots. His two previous projects were a "street metal"-style band called Fight and the industrial metal band 2wo.

Halford's first album Resurrection was included in Martin Popoff's The Top 500 Heavy Metal Albums of All Time. As well, the songs "Silent Screams" and the title-track "Resurrection" were included in Popoff's list. The track "The One You Love to Hate" guest included Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson.

In 2002 Halford released its second studio album Crucible, although no live recordings have been officially released to promote this album. A high-quality soundboard bootleg titled "Live - From the Disney House of Blues" was made available for download along with a special DEP at Robhalford.com in 2004. Halford released bonus tracks in Japan, such as "She", "Fugitive",

HALFORD Reviews

HALFORD Winter Songs

Album · 2009 · Heavy Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Vim Fuego
Despite performing internationally since the 1970s, Rob Halford has never seemed to want for inspiration or new ideas, reinventing himself over the years, through leaving and rejoining Judas Priest, and forming solo acts Fight, 2wo and the self-titled Halford. Metal fans are often deeply cynical of anything which looks phony, and Christmas albums can be seen as a seasonal cash-in, a way for artists to make a few easy bucks.

As such, Halford took something of a risk releasing “Winter Songs”. Risks do not always pay off, and this is one of those failures. Halford and his talented band wasted their time and resources creating an uneven album which does not seem to know exactly what it’s intended audience is. “Winter Songs” veers from driving metal remakes of traditional carols to tacky modern pop to 70s influenced rock, and then back to non-metal reimaginings of the traditional.

“Get Into The Spirit” is a rocking enough start, sounding like “Exciter” but with seasonal lyrics. It’s fairly standard Halford fare, pretty good while you’re listening to it, but without a killer hook or riff which is going to stay in your head hours later.

Second track “We Three Kings” is the best on the album. For some reason, the ancient melody of the song suits a metal remake very well. The piano gives it just enough of a traditional air to counterbalance the driving kick drums and the widdly solos. It’s not particularly taxing vocally, but Rob Halford has nothing left to prove to anyone.

“Oh Come O Come Emanuel” is an awful hymn, and remaking it metal style just does not work. It is possibly just far too old, and too sedate, originally dating from the 15th century. This song will have deep spiritual meaning to many, but it is the wrong song for this band.

“Winter Song” is a modern Christmas song from Canada. The original version by Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson reached number 97 in the Canadian charts, and 2 in the Irish charts. Halford shows his subtler style, but the lyrics are so cloying, schmaltzy and sickly sweet most metal fans will hit the skip button after a few seconds. This means missing a nice solo at the end, but the payoff for hanging on isn’t worth the effort.

“What Child Is This?” is given a semi-acoustic treatment, with a booming percussive beat. It plays something like a modern madrigal, and is one of the better songs on offer. The traditional Christian lyrics might be a bit much for some metal fans, but the vocal melody line is quite attractive.

“Christmas for Everyone” and “I Don’t Care” are Halford originals, and seem to be an attempt at capturing the spirit of Slade’s “Merry Christmas Everybody”, but are not as good. These songs try to capture the 70s glam rock anthem feel, but are too derivative, and fall flat.

“Light Of The World” is the worst of the originals. It tries to be a modern Christmas carol, but it’s just plain dull. It is slow and boring, with dreary string accompaniments, and ultimately sounds depressing.

“O Holy Night” features a nice ethereal vocal effect, and metal guitars seem to suit it well. Thankfully, this is sped up a bit from the more traditional seasonal dirge, and is one of the tracks which works reasonably well.

“O Come All Ye Faithful” is so pompous and overblown it makes Queen’s version of “God Save The Queen” seem restrained in comparison. Rob Halford hits his full operatic bluster, belting out “Come, let us adore him” like it was “Beyond The Realms Of Death”. The intention must have been for a rousing finale to the album, but it’s just too laughable to take seriously.

As a whole, ”Winter Songs” falls flat. The intention was genuine enough, to make a Christmas album metal fans could enjoy, but a poor selection of ancient carols and some clunky originals make for a deeply flawed album. This album is a blemish on the reputation of both Halford the man and the band, but the previous body of incredible work more than compensates.

This was the first album released by JUDAS PREIST's frontman Rob Halford under the band name HALFORD. The only band member i know besides Halford is drummer Bobby Jarzombek who has played with SPASTIC INK and ARCH/MATHEOS and is the present FATES WARNING drummer. This is such a great record though with Halford just killing it on vocals with those amazing high pitched screams along with his powerful singing voice. The big thing though is that we get a bunch of really good songs here for him to show-case his voice. This record kicks ass ! The opening title track almost makes my hair standup as he at first sings the word "Resurrection" in a reserved manner, then he screams that word. All hell then breaks out as Halford lets it rip. Killer ! "Made In Hell" is like a history lesson from Halford as he sings about the birth of Heavy Metal with words like "From memories of 68 when the wizard shook the world" of course a reference to BLACK SABBATH and then later "From Jazz and electricity and good old southern blues". The lyrics are really interesting to read throughout this track as Halford relays his personal history with Metal. He sings "I took the scream around the world from London to LA, unleashed in downtown Tokyo blew Godzilla away". It's an uptempo rocker. "Locked And Loaded" is a good heavy riff driven tune. "Night Fall" is nice and heavy as well with a METALLICA vibe. "Silent Screams" might be my favourite on the album. He sings in a laid back way early but then eventually erupts as contrasts continue. Love this one ! "The One You Love To Hate" features Bruce Dickinson on vocals along with Halford which for me is like a dream come true. The Producer Roy Z did Bruce's solo album and brought these two legends together. The last half of the album is a little inconsistant but there's certainly enough here to give the 4 stars. "Twist" is a cool tune. Yeah this is a huge comeback album for Halford.

Because reviewing all Judas Priest and related output is a too ambitious task given my available time, I decided to stick to a couple of favorite picks. 'Resurrection' is definitely one of those, an album that I loved right from the first note I heard from it, and one that I continued to play weekly for more then a year. It's been at least 5 years now and really, this slab of metal hasn't bent one inch.

As a fan of Halford's 90s thrash/groove project Fight, this album pleases me for its energetic attack. The songwriting is more straightforward then Fight though, with greater singalong &ne anthemic potential but without the overtly commercial cheesiness that stained many songs from Priest's 80s output. Toward the end of the album there's a slight dip with a couple of songs that sound a bit formulaic, but overall this one contains some of Halford best catchy writing. Kudos to his band as well, as they really ripped on this album's tour.

This is one of Halford/Priest's finest in my book, and together with the ensuing Halford album ('Crucible') it's the last Halford/Priest release so far that I deem worthy of his/their legacy.

It's a bit strange for me to classify the new Halford album as thrash. What we have here is a classical heavy metal in the traditions of the early 80s, but of course with some modern influences. Actually Made Of Metal shows the Metal God in great shape and IMO is the best album he has recorded in the last 10 years. Forget about Nostradamus and Christmas album, Made Of Metal as the title says is 100% pure metal. Almost every song is memorable, there are no fillers. 25 Years is very emotional ballad, with epic chorus and great vocal performance by Rob. The big surprise for me is The Mover with Rob's high pitched vocals like in Metal Meltdown or ever in Freewheel Burning. The rest of the album is midpaced to fast metal anthems perfect for headbanging. Does a metalhead need anything else? It's hard for me to rate this album as masterpiece but it's surely one very strong record from Halford and is highly recommended to those who love Judas Priest and traditional metal.

Genre: traditional heavy metal / thrash metal / power metal

I remember buying this album in a record shop in a small town in the eastern parts of Southern Jutland. I wasn't sure whether to purchase it or not, but being a Priest fan (and because it was ridiculously cheap), I decided in favor of "Crucible" by Halford. The cashier's horrified gasp when he saw the homoerotic image of Rob Halford sitting on a throne, clad in a studded Blue Oyster Bar style leather outfit and carrying a whip insured me that this would be a good investment.

And it was.

"Crucible" is a mostly solid heavy metal album which, while planted firmly in traditional heavy metal, also borrows from thrash metal, power metal and groove metal. Most of the songs contain hard hitting metal riffs of various types and excellent drumming by Scott Travis. Yup, this is an all out metal album, musically, but, of course, the main attraction is Halford's versatile voice, which offers both insane screaming, melodic semi-operatic singing, raw rock 'n' roll vocals and all the other things he is capable of doing. I think that the album starts out very strong with a lot of hard rocking thrashy, groovy, and power-metall-ish elements, but towards the end, it is as if the energy peters out a bit.

In any case, "Crucible" is a fine metal album and a punch in the gut of those bigots who claim that homosexuals cannot be rockers!

I'd recommend this to fans of traditional heavy metal and power metal as well as melodic thrash metal. Judas Priest fans will probably also like it. Also, the experience itself of scaring the cr*p out of your local homophobic record store cashier is worth it.
