OK I am going on 30 years old and I have to admit I know nothing of Judas Priest can someone please help me find some "good" songs to try out. I do know "You Got Another Thing Coming" but that is about it! So any recomendations will be appreciated. And please dont make fun of me. You guys have helped me without your knowledge about Iron Maiden whom I grew up very afraid of. Its long story if you want to hear it just ask and I will tell but I am not giving it up willingly!:confused:

I'd say make your first purchase either Painkiller or Screaming for Vengence.

Depends on what kinda of stuff appeals to you the most, because their sounds changes very much throughout the years.

Now, if you're looking for just a good solid album to start with, I'd say go with Screaming for Vengeance.

However, if you download music, let me recommend to you a song from each album (well, I own most of their albums). I'll either pick what I think is the best song, or what song I think best represents the album as a whole, so you can get a feel for it.

Album - Song

Rocka Rolla - Don't have, can't make recommendation.
Sad Wings of Destiny - Victim of Changes
Sin After Sin - Sinner
Stained Class - Exciter
Killing Machine/Hell Bent for Leather - Delivering the Goods
British Steel - Breaking the Law
Point of Entry - Heading Out to the Highway
Screaming for Vengeance - Devil's Child
Defenders of the Faith - The Sentinel
Turbo - - Don't have, can't make recommendation.
Ram It Down - Don't have, can't make recommendation.
Painkiller - Hell Patrol
Jugulator - Don't have, can't make recommendation.
Demolition - - Don't have, can't make recommendation.
Angel of Retribution - Judas Rising
Nostradamus - Eh, to be honest, I didn't even listen to the whole thing, I really wasn't impressed. However, the title track is pretty sweet.

Yea do NOT get Nostradamus for an introduction on Priest, that album was fucking weak.

I would not call that album weak, but if you're a n00b to Priest, don't start there.


Out of couriosity, by "good songs" do you mean songs that we're radio hits or sound like they could be radio hits?

Actually I am the kind that prefer songs that cant or wont be played on the radio for some reason or another!:rocker:

The problem here is not that you're thirty and you haven't listened to Priest; it's that you're thirty and you have listened to Slipknot.

Turbo was their greatest work, everyone here would agree. Go buy that first.

British Steel is a good first Priest album, it's got a lot of Priest classics and is just a good way to get into their sound. Their earlier material is better though, IMO. So you should also be sure to check out Sad Wings of Destiny. :D

ZZZZZINNNGGGG! :whipped:

HOWEVER...... s&d is not the only one over 30 who has listened to Slipknot. Far from one of my favorites, Slipknot does creative things here and there. I'd glad Slipknot do what they do. :2cents:

im glad the whiney 13 year old goth kids are wearing slipknot shirts instead of iron maiden ones, so i guess slipknot does us a favor.

Along with British Steel, Unleashed in the East, the remastered version, with the extra tracks, is definitely a great start.

to fill in some of the blanks from SirLards' list (plus a few recommendations of my own)...

Note: right off the bat, i never really listened to any of the Ripper years releases and cannot comment on them.

what SirLards doesn't have:
Rocka Rolla - Cheater, the title track (although the way halford sings it, you can almost hear him kicking out the closet door)
Turbo - Out in the Cold (radio), Turbo Lover, Hot For Love
Ram It Down - title track, Hard as Iron


In addition to SirLards' recommendations:

Sad Wings of Destiny - Genocide, The Ripper
Sin After Sin - Dissident (fucking) Aggressor, Diamonds & Rust
Stained Class - Savage, Better By You Better Than Me, Beyond the Realms of Death
Killing Machine/Hell Bent for Leather - title track, Running Wild
British Steel - Rapid Fire
Point of Entry - Desert Plains, and b/c they made a video of it: Hot Rockin'
Screaming for Vengeance - Ridin' on the Wind
Defenders of the Faith - Jawbreaker, Rock Hard Ride Free
Painkiller - One Shot at Glory, Between the Hammer & the Anvil
Angel of Retribution - Revolution, Demonizer

Nostradamus - this release has grown on me, plus i have low expectations (works great for flicker shows), so i am easily pleased on many levels.

i like slipknot, but it is more likely i could be found wearing an iron maiden shirt then a slipknot one. yeah i don't like the typical emo slipknot fan. they just give us true fans a bad image

'True' should never be uttered in the same breath as Slipknot. Sorry.

when i mean true fans i mean true metal heads in general. yes i like slipknot, but they are far from my favorite band.

Yes Slipknot are one of my favorite bands I am not ashamed to admit it. If you dont like them that is your perogative. As for Priest which this thread was started for I am very glad that you guys gave me some great recomendations I have put a lot of the songs on my iPod and I have to admit I am not disapointed so thanks again for all your help.
