Former Judas Priest Guitarist Flaunts New Line of Men’s Fragrances


Former Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing has launched a line of men’s fragrances, which he calls “Metal for Men,” reports Blabbermouth

Three years removed from his role with the band, the long-time “Breaking the Law” guitarist has found a muse for less dangerous ventures. 

Downing interviewed with the publication on Dec. 7 to describe his inspiration for the product, saying: 

I think I just woke up one morning and thought of the word ‘metal’ and I thought ‘metal for men’ and I thought, straight away, I thought, ‘What could that relate to?’ 

I don’t know why I thought about it, but I thought there’s nothing out there on the market that’s associated with rock and metal fans in respect to fragrances and stuff. And I guess that, combined with my mum asking me continually what I want for Christmas and stuff, and it just came about. 

And it just so happens I had a friend who had associations with fragrances before, and it came about very, very quickly.

The fragrances are now available for pre-order as limited editions, and are all individually signed by K.K. Downing. 

Orders can be made at the Planet Rock shop for a 100ml Eau de Toilette for men and a 50ml Eau de Parfum for women. 

The men’s gift set will also contain a luxury shower gel.
