Baptizm of Fire is the debut solo album by Judas Priest guitarist Glenn Tipton released in 1997.[3] Atlantic released the album on February 17, 1997.[4]


It was recorded and mixed at Devonshire and Ocean Studios, U.S.A. and Monnow Valley, Battery, Olympic, and The Gazebo Studio, UK. Writing and recording took place in the years 1994 to 1996, with management done by Bill Curbishley and Co-ordination done by Jayne Andrews.

Mostly due to conflicting time schedules with the end of production and subsequent promotion of the Judas Priest comeback with lead singer Tim "Ripper" Owens and the release of the album Jugulator in October 1997, Baptizm of Fire has not been presented on a live tour.
