Judas Priest Warms Up With Nintendo

The pre-concert ritual for metal rockers Judas Priest? Wii Sports.

In an interview with EPSN, Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford, who recently lent his voice to the game Brutal Legend, talked about the group's Nintendo gaming.

"In Judas Priest, we actually play the games in the dressing room," said the singer. Generally before a show. Just to get in the mood for the excitement and the energy for what we're gonna do.

"However, at our stately metal god time of life, we tend to do the Nintendo bowling. And the golfing. If there's any energy left after the show, we get into the boxing mode."

Halford recently trademarked the name of a video game "Metal God" this past January. The trademark covers "computer games; video games; and game controllers for computer games."
