Recordings

Halford's first album Resurrection was included in Martin Popoff's The Top 500 Heavy Metal Albums of All Time. As well, the songs "Silent Screams" and the title-track "Resurrection" were included in Popoff's list. The track "The One You Love to Hate" guest included Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson.

In 2002 Halford released its second studio album Crucible, although no live recordings have been officially released to promote this album. A high-quality soundboard bootleg titled "Live - From the Disney House of Blues" was made available for download along with a special DEP at Robhalford.com in 2004. Halford released bonus tracks in Japan, such as "She", "Fugitive", "Rock the World Forever" and "In the Morning". There is a video for the track "In the Morning" available at http://www.robhalford.com.

On November, 2006, Halford released a single set from the Halford IV album, titled "Forgotten Generation." The first wave of Halford releases included remastered editions of his solo band's back catalogue and initially releasing them through Apple's online iTunes Store. Fight also celebrated a release, an early recording entitled "K5- War of Words Demos," which were the demos that Rob Halford had recorded back when Fight had first formed. Lastly, a compilation was included, called "Metal God Essentials, Vol. 1," which not only had the fans' favorite Halford tunes, but also had new songs called "Forgotten Generation" and "Drop Out."

On September 9, 2009, frontman Rob Halford has announced that his third solo record, entitled Halford III - Winter Songs, will be released worldwide through all retailers on November 3, 2009. He has confirmed the record features new tracks recorded by his solo band between 2008–2009, as well as traditional Christmas songs re-arranged to heavy metal renditions by Halford himself. The first single, "Get Into the Spirit" will be released to radios on September 29, 2009.[1][2]
