Rob Halford is the legendary Metal God, and frontman of seminal heavy metal group Judas Priest. The band's hits include Breaking the Law, You've Got Another Thing Coming and Hell Bent For Leather. His new solo album is a heavy metal holiday celebration called Halford III: Winter Songs.(Halford Transcript)

Plus: Audrey Ewell and Aaron Aites moved to Norway to pursue their interest in that country's black metal scene. They discovered a story of extreme aesthetics, murder and church burning. The film they created, Until The Light Takes Us, follows two of the scene's scions. Gylve Nagell, known as "Fenriz," of the band Darkthrone, is a quiet, contemplative metalhead, deeply invested in the medium's aesthetics and rueful of what the scene has become. Varge Vikernes, known as "Count Grischnak," of the band Burzum is a distinct contrast. He's a charismatic and eloquent advocate of an extreme Norweigan nativist political and religious agenda. He's also a convicted murderer and church arsonist.(Ewell and Aites Transcript)

If you're a Jordan, Jesse, Go! listener, you know that Jordan's day job is as a correspondent on Fuel TV's The Daily Habit. If you're not the action sports type, you've probably missed out on the great music they book on the show.

Above, past TSOYA guests The Hold Steady perform "Stay Positive." Below, past TSOYA guest Brother Ali performs "The Preacher." Check out the music section of the Fuel site for even more from folks like Dinosaur Jr., Raekwon, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Art Brut, Busta Rhymes and a million others.
