Judas Priestess

  • What you probably already guessed: they're an all-female Judas Priest tribute
  • What you probably didn't guess: they have the blessings of the Metal Gods themselves—Rob Halford, KK Downing, and Al Atkins
  • What lead singer MilitiA sounds like: a cross between Rob Halford and Tina Turner
  • Where you may have seen her: fronting Dee Snider's heavy-metal horror orchestra, Van Helsing's Curse; touring with Jesus Christ Superstar; performing with Cyndi Lauper; on the subway, maybe
  • Joining her: Rena Sands, guitarist of Meanstreak and wife of Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci
  • And: Josette, who began rocking as a teenager in the Eric Carr–produced band Hari-Kari
  • And: bassist Gyda Gash, whose career intersects Blue Oyster Cult, the Sex Pistols, and David Bowie
  • And: drummer Hillary Blaze who shared the stage with Alice Cooper, Twisted Sister, Sevendust, and Skid Row
  • Their signature Priest songs: "Deep Freeze," "Grinder," and "Victim of Changes"—the last of which was called "fantastic" by the song's writer, Al Atkins
