Listening to it the 2nd time everything feels pretty damn flat, some cool riffs but man this sounds watered down.

This better not suck! KK was always my favourite member, hopefully it's as string as angel of retribution which I found really fun.

Sounds like Priest going through the motions. Riffs are pretty standard for the band, but that's about it.

It's got some good riffs but otherwise it sounds underwhelming.

Pretty generic song and unfortunately Halford's voice has seen much better days.

UGH!

Why why why why didn't we get a badass Halford scream at the end? It was building and building and it just never happened...

Ugh Priest is my favourite band of all time, and even I can't find anything exciting from this song. The riffs, generic; the rhythm, nothing special; and I'm so sad about Halford, no effort or energy in his performance.

Well, nothing special... I didn't expect another Painkiller, but at least another Breaking the Law... Some decent guitar work, solo is enjoyable, drumming is a little dull, Halford is a-okay, i guess, but not pretty much else. Also, Redeemer of Souls? Come on, you couldn't find a more ''metal'' title even if you tried!
I find the cover art to be another digital crap. Look at that guy, he seems like a bad Chinese robot....

this doesn't make any sense, Breaking the Law is better than Painkiller??????????

Vocals are too poppy. Not that bad, but... meh (same feeling I get from "Rock the Nation" from Axel Rudi Pell). Also, artwork is pure trash. Hoping the rest will be better. :/

It's okay. Halford is starting to sound his age. Redeemer of Souls...could they make it any more obvious it's about Jesus?

No, not at all, on the contrary... What I wanted to say is that I didn't expect them to be at a Painkiller level, but at least they could have written a simple, yet really good song (that is no way as good as Painkiller), like Breaking the Law...

Halford wasn't this bored with Five Finger Death Punch (though he still sounded bad). If he can try harder for that band instead of Judas Priest... well, shit.

They really haven't made a good album post-Painkiller, so I doubt this'll be different.

Band is dead for me studiowise, RIP 1974-1990.

^Lol, only about half of AoR is any good if you ask me, plus the closer really sucks.

The fact that that album sounds industrial-ish doesn't help its case imo.

They're definitely recycling parts of Hell Patrol here. Pretty much a bore, sadly.

Yeah, Halford's a mere mortal now. Nowhere near the Metal God he once was.

Riffage sucks, as expected. Band has been shite for a while, but without KK, they're at the bottom of the barrel. Band is dead basically.

Hopefully they can still do a good live show, although I dunno if there's hope for that, as I believe Epitaph was meant to be their last tour.

Their last tour would've made for a timely sendoff, yeah.

I'm happy they're making another album, and just hope the rest of the songs will be better. After having listened to it a few times, the biggest problem is the production.
