Super D Independent Distribution has signed Rob Halford's Metal God Entertainment to a U.S. distribution deal.

The first release under the deal will be "Metal God Essentials Volume 1," which features 13 tracks, including songs from Halford's Fight and the artist's solo recordings, as well as new songs "Forgotten Generation" and "Drop Out." The package will also include a full-color, 20-page expanded booklet and bonus "Metal God" DVD, featuring eight Halford promotional videos in a double-jewel case. The package will also be available as a deluxe limited edition.

"This relationship brings a new and powerful U.S. partner to Metal God
Entertainment's new film and music releases being produced for the global Rock and Metal audiences," Halford said in a statement. "I am looking forward to re-connecting with and meeting many of Super D's accounts."

The Irvine, Calif., one-stop has been ramping up its independent distribution with new label signings and the hiring of Tim Hinsley as the indie distributor's GM.

Also slated under the latest deal is a fall release of "Fight War Of Words -- The Film," a 5.1 documentary and concert DVD about Halford's decision to depart metal band Judas Priest in 1992, and start a solo career.
