Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford revealed we might be in for some interesting collaborations in the near future, once again mentioning the idea of joining forces with Behemoth frontman Nergal, while also bringing up another big name – Ghost leader Tobias Forge.
Rob told Phoenix New Times:
“Nergal and I are possibly doing a collaboration. I was in the dressing room with Tobias from Ghost, and we talked about collaborative opportunities too.
“It’s fun for musicians to step into each other’s world. It’s like different football teams – it’s the same game but a different play. I’m just very curious to see where my voice can fit in.”
Back in March, Halford told Noisey:
“I met Nergal from Behemoth recently, and I said to Nergal, ‘You know I love your kind of music. I would love to kind of put my toe into the water and see what would happen.’
“So now I’ve got these two very nebulous but I hope at some point very real opportunities to do something with Nergal and still something to with Ihsahn.
“[Second Emperor album, 1997’s] ‘Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk,’ that’s my big Emperor album. Both of them are incredible – they just have this real mastery of their world.”
