For over 40 years, Judas Priest have remained mainstays of the heavy metal world, dominating the airwaves and selling out the world’s biggest venues. Even after decades of sustained success, the band is still reaching new heights following the release of their latest album, Firepower. The release marked the band’s 18th studio album and highest charting album ever on the Billboard 200.
According to Billboard, Firepower “bows with 49,000 units earned in the week ending March 15, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 48,000 were in traditional album sales — the act’s best sales frame since 2005’s Angel of Retribution bowed with 54,000 copies sold.” On top of that, the album’s lead single, “Lightning Strike,” landed the band’s highest charting single on the Mainstream Rock Songs chart since their classic 1982 hit, “You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’.”
