I can't wait to see them live opening with this song! Can anybody give me an example of a 30-year old band coming back and delivering one of its best albums! The younger metal bands SHOULD LISTEN to this album- Judas Priest sound younger than the majority of the new bands which concentrate on technical virtuosity (if any) and not giving a damn soul about the music! This is especially true for the most American and Canadian bands from the last 10-15 years which sound so cold, trivial and void of emotion. There is so much power and passion in each Priest song!
"Judas Rising" is one of the best songs Priset have ever made.
" Deal with the devil" is a classical heavy rocker reminding of Halford's "Resurrection" album.
"Revolution"-one of my favorites-monumental, it carries the glory of "Heavy Duty"/Defenders of the Faith", but it's even better.
"Worth Fighting For"-ironically, not a perfect song, reminds me of my least favorite Priest albums ("Point of Entry"/"Turbo"), but I respect their decision to put it on the album, because it contains elements of everything they have done the last 30 years.
" Demonizer", Wheels of Fire", "Hellrider"-could have been taken from "Painkiller", with surprising operatic chants from Rob Halford on the third song. Magnificent, totally stunning Priest
"Angel"-one of Priest's finest ballads. Beautiful vocals from Rob (not like Demolition's "Lost And Found", which was dreadful)
Eulogy/Lochness- a majestic, epic closure of the album with heavy guitars and supreme vocals from Rob. Reminder of the prog-metal first Priest albums from the seventees.
Overall, one of the best metal albums you have heard in years and one of Priest's best! Ten stars!
