Glowing reviews will also appear on the June and July issues of all Metal magazines, with ROCK HARD Italy who stated: “Metal God Essentials is the best way to learn about the solo career from the british singer, so that the young guys will know who are the real Gods of Metal”.
Rob Halford has also recently stated, in an interview to appear on the forthcoming MRF label magazine: “I now operate my global label and production company, Metal God Entertainment and I licence my music and films to digital music companies and deliver it direct via www.HalfordMusic.com. Frontiers has displayed to my company as a supportive European label with an established retail and product distribution network. Frontiers will be a wonderful team to work and grow with and I look forward to good times together”.
Frontiers Records President, Serafino Perugino said: “Rob Halford signing is a pivotal choice for the label’s operations. We deem this new partnership with the outmost respect and enthusiasm and we look forward to establish firmly Halford’s legendary position of Heavy Metal God within the European markets”.
