March of the Damned

Album: Redeemer of Souls (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The first official single from Redeemer of Souls, this prominently features the guitar work of Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner. "'March of the Damned' is really one of my favorite songs," said Tipton. "It's just simple, straight to the point. It's not really a song about zombies or The Walking Dead."

    "It also has a reference to all the kids that come to our concerts, that march along and can't be stopped," he added. "So it's not Judas Priest and the audience. With all the anthems we've done and all the singing the audience does, it's one and the same thing."
