“LIFT ME UP” FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH Ft. Rob Halford
In the terms of metal music, Five Finger Death Punch is the new kid on the block. Their nu-metal hits are the soundtrack of WWE matches and Monster Energy drinks. But given the opportunity to have The Metal God, Rob Halford, join them for their latest single was an unbelievable opportunity for the Florida band. They joined together at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards this summer to premiere the song and instantly it shot to #1 on the Rock Charts. The song is certainly NSFW but as an aggressive motivational rocker, it sounds amazing as a blend of modern metal with Halford’s vintage vocals.
“DELIVERING THE GOODS” ROB HALFORD with SEBASTIAN BACH
One of my favorite Rob Halford collaborations was his appearance with Skid Row’s Sebastian Bach on MTV’s Headbangers Ball. In this lost classic video, Rob is decked out in jeans, backwards cap, and a flannel shirt. Despite the grunge look, this Judas Priest cover is Pure 100% Metal. Sebastian matches Halford in intensity. It’s like watching a heavyweight title fight as the two trade off metal screams. Sebastian proudly screams “I Love This Man!” as the performance ends!
