I dig it. It does use the same rhythm as Hell Patrol, but you might as well hate Rapid Fire for being too much like of Exciter.

I like it. The fact that the song has a similar feel to Hell Patrol gets me thinking this album may have more of a Painkiller vibe to it. I'm not going to get on the production too much since we're just listening to some version of it on youtube.

Sounds pretty good. Don't like the millions of effects on Rob's voice during the chorus, but I think I like this song more than most of the stuff on Nostradamus, so that's cool!

I have no real opinion on the sound of this yet mainly because of the shitty bitrate. But I like the song. It would suck if this is the best on the album, but it's a decent enough single.

I don't know if it's the bitrate, but the guitars do sound a little thin. The real question that this album will answer is: Can Priest make a good album without the twin riff attack of Tipton/Downing?

I like it, it's not earth shattering but a decent single. Just glad we will have some new Priest soon.

After a proper listen cranked through the headphones on 1080p...

- The rhythm guitar isn't that bad. However, it would've been better with just the guitar straight into the amp. The chorus/flange effect doesn't flatter it.

- The solo (especially the first part) needs to be bumped WAY up in the mix.

- The mix in general sounds weak. As previously mentioned, I'll reserve full judgment until I have the physical copy.

- Albeit no major screams, Rob sounds as good as any 63 year old could hope to sound.

I'm looking forward to the album. Even Priest's most looked down upon works, I enjoy.
