Ok, so let's discuss Judas Priest. Starting out in the '70s, Judas Priest are often credited with inventing the genre of Speed Metal. They have released several definitive albums, including their debut album Rocka Rolla, 1988's Ram It Down (http://www.musicianforums.com/forums/showpost.php?p=5419537&postcount=10), and 1990's Painkiller (http://www.musicianforums.com/forums/showpost.php?p=5425701&postcount=29), as well as excellent albums in the form of British Steel and Screaming For Vengeance.

The have recently announced a new album, as yet untitled, due to be realesed on 28 December. It is the first since "Painkiller" to feature Rob Halford on vocals, thereby bringing back the classic line-up of Halford/Tipton/Downing/Hill/Travis.

So, anything about Priest... favourite albums, tidbits of info, reviews of the new CD when it comes out; put it all in here. :thumb:

So, my favourite song is easily Hard As Iron. What's yours?


Edit: Alright, so it appears that Priest's new album was delayed somewhat. However, seeing as it is going to be released soon, I asked for, and was granted permission to bump this thread, along with some new information.

The album is entitled Angel Of Retribution, and will be released:

February 28 - Europe
March 1st - Rest Of The World

Hopefully, this new release will bring in a lot of new fans, especially since it features the classic line-up. As such, I recommend also checking out "Living After Midnight", the greatest hits of the classic Priest.

Also, seeing as Frail is yet to return to the forums, this thread may experience a plummet into the voids of obscurity (page 5 and beyond). So, any Priest fans on the forum, knuckle down and keep this thing alive. :thumb:

Yes. Priest are a great band. They must be ranked as on of the grandaddys of metal along with Black Sabbath. British Steel is an excellent album as is Hell bent for leather.

Don't be put off by the fact that on most pictures they seem to be dressed like the leather loving bloke out of the Village People. They rock.

I live about 10 minutes away from Walsall, to be honest I live nearer Wolverhampton but if you drive really quick i suppose you could get to walsall in 10 minutes(M6 J10 of course).
Anyway, Judas Priest, well I know some of their stuff but not much but I respect them since they are arguably one the biggest heavy metal influences and the songs that I do know by them I like.

Yes, Halford sings vocals on that album. It is the album's after Painkiller that Halford left and was replaced by Ripper Owens.

And I'm not sure that Rock Star was based on Judas Priest. Don't know though.

Who sings in The Ripper? I heard it wasn't Halford.

"The Ripper" is from the 1976 Priest album "Sad Wings of Destiny." Halford is the vocalist. I think whoever told you that Halford didn't sing it is confused because Tim Owen's nickname is 'Ripper.'

"The Ripper" is one of my favorite Priest tunes even though it is very short (2:49 I think.) Mercyful fate does a pretty cool cover of "The Ripper." As you can imagine, King Diamond's voice fits the range and the subject of this song very well. Iced Earth also covers the song although I prefer Mercyful Fates' version. Of course, the original is still the best.

I've said this before, I'm saying it now, and I'll probably say it again: Judas Priest, Ozzy, and Iron Maiden form the Holy Trinity of Heavy Metal. If Ozzfest could line up Priest *and* Maiden along with Ozz (or Sabbath) I would be so happy I would shït.

Priest has had a long and distinguished career with loads of great music along the way. I don't care for the stuff with Owens - I don't even really consider that to be Priest. And Turbo pretty much sucked. But unlike many bands of that era that rode the gravy train from metalville to wuss rock city and never turned back, Priest returned to their roots (and got even heavier) after Turbo even though that album sold exceedingly well.

I really appreciate early Priest though - the complexity of the arrangements shows how they were really way ahead of their time. In my opinion, their early stuff still stands up against any modern metal (although the guitars are lacking in crunch compared to what is standard now.)

To summarize, any way you slice it, Judas Priest fücking rocks!!!

The Priest are great, I can't wait for the new album.


i live in walsall too, or just outside it, in aldridge. i never knew he was from here.


i've never listened to judas priest much, painkiller is one of my favourite songs though, with 2 of my favourite guitar solos. my parents have been to see them before, they saw them in 1979 in birmginham when maiden were supporting them. so my dad used to put them on in the car which is how i got into a lot of bands i like. the ripper is the only one i remember though, and the only others i can remember are breaking the law and another thing coming (off GTA:VC).

01-11-2005, 02:57 PM

Like, the classic Priest that everyone is always raving about, the stuff thats supposedly much heavier and thrashier than singles like Breakin The Law and Livin After Midnight.

DBoons Ghost
01-11-2005, 03:16 PM
I loved Preist for years.

To be honest, the album I always recommend to people is their live EP "Unleashed in the East".

Judas Preist is best experienced live. I also think "Sad Wings of Destiny", "Rocka Rolla" and "Point of Entry" are amazing albums too though.

I've seen them 3 or 4 times between "Defenders of the Faith" and "Turbo Lover" and even though those albums are iffy, seeing them live usuallu quells any ill informed listeners.

Seriously. Buy "Unleashed in the East". Between Ripper, Sinner, Diamonds and Rust, and the live version of Victim of Changes, you'll be shocked how amazing they are.

ThrashMaster27
01-11-2005, 03:18 PM
I wouldn't really call 'Classic' Priest Thrashy as such. Stained Class is their defining moment for me, but most people will either tell you Painkiller from what I've seen. Painkiller is probably their heaviest album to date, but I'd still pick 2 CD's over it (Stained Class, Screaming For Vengeance).

You do know Rob is actually gay, right Joe?

And, glad to see the Priest fans have come out of the woodwork at last. :)

To Gav, I would recommend either Unleashed In The East, as DBoon said; Ram It Down for a healthy dose of their classic speed metal days, or Sad Wings Of Destiny and/or Hellbent For Leather for their heavy, really kickarse days.

And yeah, Priest has never been smash. They ventured into Speed metal from Screaming For Vengeance (somewhat) through to Painkiller, and then ventured off the path a bit with Owen. It'll be interesting to see what style they return to on the new album.

Maybe a mix up would be nice. Half a CD worth of Stained Class material and half of Painkiller-esque songs. I'm gonna buy the CD regardless, but it'd be nice if it's Priest back at their best and Rob Halford screaming for vengeance again.

Riva
01-12-2005, 04:31 PM
Well, Priest's height (back in the late seventies - eighties) were when Maiden were beginning to define NWOBHM. Hence Maiden were inspired by Judas Priest, but expanded upon the classic metal genre to become even more influential than Priest. Even though I love Priest dearly, I have to admit that I love Maiden more.

I love preist. My favourite album would have to be 'Stained Class' but
i don't think they ever put a foot wrong with their studio efforts.

I can't wait to hear 'Angel of retribution' i hope it will be killer.
I heard that it's more of a return to the 'Painkiller' era with some
songs that wouldn't be out of place on 'British Steel' in an interveiw
i read with K.K Downing.

I sure hope they come tour out here in OZ.

I bought it yesterday and ive listened it about 10-12 times.
I must say that i am not very excited about it. Screaming for vengeance, painkiller are by far superior. This album is "just another Judas Priest record". It has some cool songs but not many. Its not really creative.
Favourite songs: "Deal with the devil", "Hellrider" and "Angel"
Most ordinary song: "Worth fighting for"
Out of 5 i would give it a 3.

I dont want to change your opinion but i believe that you try first listen to it and then decide to buy it or not. The best thing from the record (in my opinion of course) is the bonus dvd which features 7 classic Priest tunes. Medium album overall. Just my thoughts... Waiting for yours when listening it.

I pre-ordered it. I don't really have a choice.

Either way, I'm the obsessive type who has to own everything affiliated with his hobby. Which is unfortunate considering how many bands I listen to, and how gaping the holes in my CD collection are thus far.

Living After Midnight is a good one, as it is the greatest hits, up to Painkiller.

My personal favourites are Hellbent For Leather, Painkiller, and Ram It Down. You could also try Screaming For Vengeance, Sad Wings Of Destiny, or British Steel.

Unleashed In The East
Sad Wings of Destiny
Stained Class
Painkiller

Although you can't go wrong with any of them, I'd recommend getting Unleashed first.

It's more like Painkiller than Sad Wings Of Destiny. It's good some good riffs, and Halford sounds like he never left Priest. It's a really good listen.

Why would you wear ear plugs? It doesn't matter how loud it is, it matters about the music and the atmosphere when you play.

If The Hellion could be counted as an intro to Electric Eye then I'd choose that. But another vote for Metal Meltdown with it's crazy intro solo.

03-17-2005, 03:57 PM
Yes, Metal Meltdown is also good. And on Living After Midnight, which I got as a Christmas present ages ago, Electric Eye and The Hellion are the same song.

The Scorpions were spot on with getting their sound right - you could hear everything.

Priest setlist (well...what I can remember that they played)

The Hellion/Electric Eye
Metal Gods
Judas Rising
Breaking the Law
Deal with the Devil
Diamonds and Rust (acoustic version off the dvd from the new album)
Revolution
Turbo Lover
Painkiller
Hellrider
I'm A Rocker
Hell Bent For Leather
You've Got Another Thing Coming
Living After Midnight

They played some more, but it was a great set. The new songs sounded amazing.

Halford had a crazy effect on his vocals, every time he screamed it was distorted and echoed alot.

they rocked the place out - when KK came to the front where we were (which he did regularly) i was a couple of rows of people back and people were lening so much to touch him i could get within 6 inches of him from a few rows back - they really got the crowd working well

They were perfect at the Brum gig - sound was spot on. The only crappy things were his odd tambourine playing and the drummer not being able to catch his sticks after throwing them up in the air.

Seeing as they've been going for longer than Priest (I think), they did a great job.

With Priest you could hardly hear what Halford was singing, they had everything else up too much and it was kinda meh.

Edit: Its excuseable though, the NEC is a horrible venue.

they changed the backdrop depdning on what album the song was from - i enoyed everything they played - there was a really mellow song that made this one dimebag lookalike cry - it was quite soulful i guess - they played with those electro acosutcis still on the stands

I've got two albums, British Steel and Painkiller. I can't trust buying any more. British Steel was average at best, incredebly overrated and just poor. Painkiller was good. Any recommendations as to where I should go from there?

I would say Screaming for Vengence or Unleashed in the East.

And yes, British Steel is very, very overrated.

That was Diamonds and Rust, its possibly the best version of the song I've ever heard.

Edit: Sin After Sin is a good album to get.

The back-drops I remember them having were The Angel of Retribution, The Electric Eye and the Judas Priest logo with United written underneath it.

Im really annoyed they didnt play Ram It Down. Shouldve played that last instead of You got another Thing Coming. Also How can you call Ian Hill a statue? :confused: Hes more liek one of those bird things. Up and Down Up and Down. Wooo occasionally he kinda gets mad at his bass. The only way I knew show was ending was cuz Ian Hill did something other than go up and down.

(Hes boring yea, but not a statue.)

Another Thing Coming is arguably Priest's most famous, and most succesful song. It makes sense that they would play that. Ram It Down still should have been played though.

I believe that the most famous priest song is Breaking the Law... Everyone knows that...

Yeh I'm sure that was all. What was the song where Halford came on on the Bike? Was it Hell Bent For Leather? I really cant remember but I'm sure that had a different backdrop actually.

What do you think of Lochness guys? Cause Ive heard it slated a number of times but I really like it. Just wanted an opinion.

^He came out on the bike for Hell Bent For Leather.

I quite like Lochness, I don't see why all the media/press have slammed it into the ground.
