Abbath rides on the wind with Judas Priest cover

Posted by on December 11, 2015

Former Immortal frontman and current black metal rockstar, Abbath, has a new self-titled album coming out on January 22nd via Season of Mist and we got a taste of it with “Fenrir Hunts” and “Winterbane” but if you can’t wait for that long to get a load of Abbath, we got some new tunes for you and one of them is a classic.

Abbath will release a 7″ EP titled Count the Dead which is also featured on his future full-length but the EP also features a cover of Judas Priest’s “Riding on the Wind” and it actually sounds great. Both songs are absolutely crushing so you can thank the Son of the Northern Darkness for the treat.
