There are countless reasons why Rob Halford is known worldwide as "The Metal God." But at the top of the list would be his pioneering singing style, songwriting talents, and a fashion sense that has inspired countless heavy metal artists over the years.

And in addition to co-creating JUDAS PRIEST's outstanding body of work, he has also issued music outside of the beloved legendary Birmingham band — which is precisely what the new 14-CD boxset, "The Complete Albums Collection", showcases.

Included are four albums by the ferociously thrash-inspired FIGHT, as well as the lone album by the industrial-inspired 2WO (which featured future ROB ZOMBIE and MARILYN MANSON guitarist John 5, and saw NINE INCH NAILS' Trent Reznor serve as executive producer), plus seven titles from the solo band HALFORD, which saw the Metal God gloriously return to pure, unadulterated metal.

Due on May 19 via Legacy Recordings, "The Complete Albums Collection" features the following:

FIGHT | K5: The War Of Words Demos (recorded 1992, released 2007), War Of Words (1993), Mutations (1994), A Small Deadly Space (1995)

2WO | Voyeurs (1998)

HALFORD | Resurrection (2000), Live Insurrection (2 CDs, 2001), Crucible (2002),  Live In Anaheim (2 CDs; recorded 2003, released 2010),  Halford III: Winter Songs (2009), Halford IV: Made Of Metal (2010), Live At Saitama Super Arena (2011)

With the arrival of "The Complete Albums Collection", metal fans will now have the definitive collection of Rob Halford's stellar work outside of the mighty JUDAS PRIEST, all in one set.

HALFORD's last studio album, "Halford IV: Made Of Metal", came out in 2010. Seven of the album's 14 tracks were entirely written by Halford, the first time he had taken the musical reins on a project since the 1993 FIGHT album "War Of Words". "As a musician, you can't control these things when they happen to you," Halford explained to MTV at the time of the album's release. "The ideas just take over your body and it can be pretty scary. You've got to get them down quickly. It feels like there's a spark you have to grab, like lightning in a bottle, and if you don't get it down, there's a chance it's going to escape. So, for two weeks, these things kept flooding through my brain. And then suddenly, they stopped and that's when I got together with [guitarist] Roy [Z], [guitarist] Metal Mike Chlasciak, [bassist] Mike Davis, and [drummer] Bobby Jarzombek and came up with the other songs."

Developed for young metal-heads in the age group of 12-20, Metal Heroes Summer Camp is designed to teach, motivate and inspire young metal-heads through intense, but fun instruction in heavy metal.

The crescendo of this very special vacation experience will take place on the last day when the students will have a chance to perform with Mike in front of their family and friends during a live concert staged at the camp’s playground.

I'm very excited to kick off and welcome you to our fourth annual Metal Heroes Summer Camp. Doing an event like this is something that has been on my mind for a very, very long time. I’m psyched to return in 2017 for our fourth annual metal celebration. All rock band instruments are welcome focusing on Guitar, Bass, Drums and Vocals. I hope you will join me on this 100% full-on metal journey.

I have always wanted to share my tour and music experiences with younger metal-heads. I’m really looking forward to open up the metal vault with you on so many levels in order to help you sharpen your skills to metal ninja perfection. While helping you with individual tasks and any challenges you might face, I’ll share with you how to make amazing progress when rehearsing with a band, how to quickly apply new material and how to deliver a powerful live performance. I can guarantee this will be incredibly fun and you will learn a lot, too.

You also will get great introductory tips on the music business, how to work well with others, all the while you fully immerse yourself in the music of the metal gods. We’ll be jamming together, hanging out together, studying what makes a song or a performance great - while everyone will get a chance to ask their questions and get plenty of one-on-one playing advice.

And, of course, get ready to hear countless tour stories which more than likely involve your favorite rockers. 

We’ll close out the camp with a superb metal concert in front of your family and friends. We have several other activities planned which include a metal discovery lounge, metal movie nights, specialized guitar workshops, swimming and much more. Campers will also have a chance to check out various items from my journeys that include custom guitars, dressing room signs, posters, tour itineraries and more.

While all the metal-heads are enjoying a great time hanging out and jamming with their friends old and new, guitarists will be studying guitar lick packs especially designed for the camp, while drummers and bass players will learn the secrets of a tight metal rhythm section through metal clinics. I will be there overseeing the entire day to lead rehearsals and go over song parts. 

I really want the kids to experience the power of rock and metal music and have a lot of fun while doing so, because ultimately, no one picks up an instrument not to have fun with it. So, if spending nearly a week at a beautiful resort like location while immersing yourself in all things metal sounds good to you – then let’s rock! This is for you. Metal For Life!”

Sony Music Entertainment and Legacy Recordings, Sony's catalog division, have signed a worldwide-rights deal with The Metal God, Rob Halford.

Frontman of the legendary heavy metal band JUDAS PRIEST, Rob Halford brought his iconic charisma and influential vocal style to a variety of side projects since 1992, notably his bands FIGHT, TWO and HALFORD.

The new Sony/Legacy agreement with Rob Halford will include individual album catalog titles and audio-visual releases.

Upcoming Rob Halford anthology titles will include an "Essential" and "Playlist" collection with plans for a definitive "Complete Albums Box"

Born Robert John Arthur Halford on August 25, 1951, Rob Halford rocketed to fame as the lead singer for the Grammy Award-winning heavy metal band JUDAS PRIEST. One of the genre's most powerful, distinctive and influential vocalists, Halford set the standard for generations of metal singers.

After leaving JUDAS PRIEST in 1992, Halford formed the band FIGHT and, between 1993 and 1995, recorded two albums, "War Of Words" and "A Small Deadly Space", and an EP, "Mutations", with the band.

Following FIGHT, Halford moved into the realm of industrial metal with his TWO project. In 2000, he launched the straight-ahead no-nonsense pure metal ensemble HALFORD.

The Sony/Legacy release agreement includes virtually all of Rob Halford's work with FIGHT, TWO and HALFORD from 1992 onward.

Coming on March 31, Columbia/Legacy Recordings will release "The Essential Rob Halford" (2 CD; 30 tracks).
