Lots of epicness here. Might up my rating. Might do with a few tracks less, as some have said.



(Notably Lone Wolf, which sounds like Load era Metallica lol)

Haven't heard it and probably never will. I don't really have time for any Priest past the 80s and there are other, younger heavy metal bands doing cooler things rn

I did hear the singles, but I have very little free time and listening to Judas Priest play some pretty-okay songs that aren't as good as their classics and will never get attention from me past a cursory listen in order to deem "pretty good" is just not worth the time I'd otherwise spend listening to music I actually have an interest in

Their first eight albums are all 5/5

My fave Priest is either Sad Wings or Sin

EDIT: their first TEN* are 5/5

If I ranked them it'd probably be something like

Sin=Sad > Stained > Screaming > British > Killing > Defenders > Turbo > Rocka > Point

This is very sweet, such a fun record and very well produced. The only track I'm not major on is lone wolf, but it's still good. This to me seems like classic 80s priest style with some painkiller elements and some 70s priest in some of the more melodic sections (parts of sea of red and children of the sun).

Anyone else have the CD? The piece of text on the back is a neat throwback to the back cover text on defenders of the faith!

“So now I’ve got these two very nebulous but I hope at some point very real opportunities to do something with Nergal and still something to with Ihsahn. Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk, that’s my big Emperor album. Both of them are incredible – they just have this real mastery of their world.”

Yeah I have the CD. The little character bio on the back is hilarious. I know they've had one on Screaming, Defenders, and Painkiller.

they started the tour yesterday. They played just three songs off "Firepower". What's the point in releasing your best album in 28 years if you play only 3 songs off it live??? They could have played at least 4 or 5...

I mean, they're a band with an immense back catalog, to they could do an entire 20-30 song setlist of classics. I agree they could have added maybe one or two more from this, but they're playing Saint in Hell, Running Wild, Grinder, Some Heads Are Gonna Roll, Bloodstone - deeper cuts that they haven't played in so long.

Yesterday or in general? I've seen 'em twice (Epitaph and Redeemer tours) but they're not coming to my city this time :[
