Nice to hear him actually do some metal again with Halford.

Wow, and you thought A Matter of Life and Death had notes that a legendary metal vocalist couldn't get close to hitting anymore! :hecho: :hecho:

I have always thought Halford is overrated, but that was hardly the biggest issue with that song.

^ Halford > Your face.

The song was good, but it was really lacking in the riff department if you ask me.

the song is pretty mediocre, yea it sounds like metal and has all the proper parts, but its just not that interesting to me.

also, calling it "the mower" completely abolished any chance for me of ever taking this seriously.

Yeah, basically the riffs are completely meh. Halford sounds like he's straining himself, but it's not so bad. (heck, I LOVE the way certain singers sound when you can tell they're really pushing themselves... aka bruce). It's just really forgettable, and makes me think of some song that was going to be put on Resurrection before they realized it wasn't good enough to be on the album.

If you're referring to the band Halford, it is acceptable. However, if you're talking about the vocalist himself, it seems a bit strange to me that you would think that. Either way it's cool, I was just surprised. ;)

I'm definitely referring to the vocalist. The Halford band is anything but overrated. "Resurrection" is my favorite album Rob has done, period.

You're not less metal for liking them at all. In fact, I totally get it because only about half their stuff is any good. They truned to shit on Point Of Entry and didn't recover until Painkiller when they became Judas Priest again. Sure, they had some good songs between POE and RID put 90 percent of it was chessy and just plain bad.

Screaming for Vengeance is right up there with Stained Class, Sad Wings, and Painkiller for me. Not sure where this "they sucked in the 80s" theory comes from.

The song sounded good but needs riffs instead of just chugging.

Yeah, you're completely right. I've been listening to metal for 20 years and have never heard the entire catalog of one of the top five most essential groups of the genre:tp:

I just think for the most part they were on auto-pilot in the 80s. They weren't putting in the effort or thought into most of the material like they should've done. Besides Free Wheel Burning, The Sentinal and Night Comes Down there isn't anything memorable about DOTF.

SFV is the same way for me. Electric Eye, Devil's Child and the title track are very good. Hell, for as over played as YGATC is that's still a solid song as well. But once again nothing else on that album is that memorable to me and isn't really anything I get a craving to hear with any regularity.

Every group has their slumps from time to time. In a career spanning 35 years it bound to happen. I think Judas Priest despite the great reputation they've earned as metal icons, which they do deserve btw, is one of the most inconsistant bands i've ever heard.

For the life of me I'll never understand the extreme love for Sad Wings. I wouldn't say either decade of Priest is better than the other, both have high highs (SFV, DOTF, BS, HBFL, SC) and low lows (POE, RR, Turbo). Their great albums are all spread out across decades.

How about we do a gardening trilogy.

The Mower, The Hoe, and The Rake

Do like the vocals though. Painkilleresque which I haven't heard from him in awhile. The song itself however?

Neither one of those albums is a British Steel, though. :fist:

Me 3.

Screaming for Vengeance and Defenders were epic at that time. Maiden opened for Priest on the SFV Tour in 83 and at that time there was nothing more metal than that show.

Very few bands have tanked like Turbo but you have to realize the pressure they were under by the conglomerate record companies back then. Defenders was called a Screaming clone and sold just over half as many records so they were pressured to make more radio friendly crap. Everyone hated Turbo at the time but it sold as many as Defenders because we were diehard fans. Ram it Down sold half of that because we all heard Ram it Down was more like Turbo than Screaming. Painkiller was incredible but by that time Metallica and Slayer were ruling the scene and Priest had to earn their fans back.

I grew up with my brother subjecting me to Hell Bent for Leather every day for 2 years so that's my 2nd favorite studio album behind Sad Wings. I think it's Priest's most underrated album actually. As much as I like the earlier stuff I think all of the Unleashed in the East versions are better than the originals. To me UITE is not only the best live album ever made but Priest's masterpiece. I'll never forget the day my buddy came back from Germany and gave me the import version with the 4 additional songs. It's funny how a moment like that can totally change who you are. I own thousands of imports, cd singles and bonus tracks versions because of that I'm sure.

If you don't have Priest in the East, I can't possibly recommend it more. I'm sure it's cheap on ebay these days...

EDIT: To expand a bit further, "Riding on the Wind" is such an obvious little piece of additional fun - and it's right there in front of you, so why not enjoy it? If you fail to take advantage, the loss is all yours. ;)
