Judas Priest and DIO are arguably the seminal Godfathers of Heavy Metal.
For the first time in Australia, two former members of these bands will come together to form Metal Gods, in what will be the ultimate ode to Judas Priest and DIO.

Metal Gods will feature singer Ripper Owens – famed vocalist for Judas Priest after the departure of Rob Halford in 1992 – and Drummer, Simon Wright, who was a member of AC/DC between 1983 and 1989 before leaving the group to join Ronnie James Dio’s band.

The Metal Gods band also features the talents of James Morley, former bassist with The Angels, and Joel McDonald, known for his work with Rose Tattoo, Various Members of Kiss, and the World Famous Frankies House Band. The band will perform all the hits from both Judas Priest and Dio’s catalogue with Sabbath and Rainbow, as well as solo classics such as Holy Diver and Rainbow in the Dark.

This band does not mess around, it’s ROCK, delivered primal and powerful!
