Biography

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine & Greg Prato
Judas Priest was one of the most influential heavy metal bands of the '70s, spearheading the New Wave of British Heavy Metal late in the decade. Decked out in leather and chains, the band fused the gothic doom of Black Sabbath with the riffs and speed of Led Zeppelin, as well as adding a vicious two-lead guitar attack; in doing so, ...

I am not a die hard metal fan, indeed I am not really a fan of metal atall, having approaced it from the early 70s rock crossover. This is,though, one of my all time most listened to albums.
I bought asecond-hand copy of the vinyl version nearly twenty years ago. The mostimprotant thing to note is that the running order of the CD is wrong: Theoriginal record clearly has side one beginning with Prelude (Obviously!!)and running through to Island of Domination. Side two starts with Victimof Changes etc. When you see this obvious running order (and it makes alot more musical sense when you listen to it like this) you will see thatthis is, in fact, a classic 70s concept album.
But what a heavy one atthat!
Yes, it is doom laden. Yes it is heavy. Yes it is deep, almostphilosophical at times. But it transports the listener through a fantasticrange of emotions from despair, through aggression and nostalgia to anihilistic, apocalyptic conclusion.
Buy it and indulge yourself

this in my opinion is the only album of priest worth having the sound is unlike anything else they ever did it can only be described as DOOM ROCK of the highest order the album opens with the extremely heavy VICTIM OF CHANGES and the whole thing keeps up the slow heavy doom throughout,rob halfords vocals are superb as well,there are more reflective moments also such as DREAMER DECIEVER and PRELUDE but this only serves to highten the brilliant riffs of the heavier stuff else where back in 1976 this was a revelation and its a shame the band didnt carry on in this direction this ranks as high as early sabbath!buy it now!!

The whole album announces a mesmerising symphony of heavy metal at its purest. I've always considered Judas Priest to be the original purveyors of pure heavy metal. Ill educated metalists claim Black Sabbath (the started as a sixties protest band) or even more misguided Led Zeppelin (who always denied they were 'metal') as the first metal band - madness. Judas Priest were unashamedly metal and this album captures the power that that music can exude. Truly a classic that should cross musical genre and be sitting up there with supposedly classic albums like the Beatles White Album, Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon, Zeppelin IV etc.

This is the first great Priest album, although people who only know them from their later stuff may not recognise this as such. There is almost an element of 'prog rock' to this album and it is not all heavy (though a lot of it is). One of the quieter tracks, 'Dreamer Deciever' is totally awesome, Rob's singing (on the original LP on Gull records he was listed as 'Bob Halford') is totally amazing on this track and it is great the way that it segue's into the heavier track 'Deceiver'.
Victim of Changes - One of the best Priest songs ever great singing, great Riff and fab soloing, what more could you ask for?
Well, I could ask for this whole album to be remastered because the production sounds a bit thin. Imagine this with modern production, it really would be mindblowing.
The Ripper- Pure theatre, one of priests early hits, always popular. This too would benefit from remastering.
Dreamer Deceiver - Slowy, great build up, amazing singing, great imagery, one of the best slower songs ever. Probably Priest's best slowy ever (or equal first with 'Before the Dawn' from the Killing Machine album)
Deceiver - Great heavy track to end side one.
Prelude - just what it says (prog rock intro? Borrowed (or lent to?) Queen?
Tyrant - Brilliant heavy song, a classic
Genocide- Amazing and very heavy song. One of my top 5 Priest tracks ever. Great riff, lots of interesting bits, time changes, excellent solo's. The bit where the song slows down in the space of couple of bars is puure class. If you haven't heard this version of the song (better than the live version on unleashed in the East , although that is good too and the production is heavier.

Format: Audio CD
Priest's second album, this is a monumental effort and a huge leap forward from the somewhat lacklustre 'Rocka Rolla'. This is the album on which Priest proved themselves masters of metal and almost every song on the album is a classic. 'Victim of Changes' is possibly Priest's finest hour - eight minutes of perfection. Elsewhere, 'Tyrant' with its layered harmonies, the SM-ish 'Island of Domination' and the powerful 'Genocide' are classics. 'The Ripper' still features in Priest's sets and is campy metal melodrama, while the pairing of 'Dreamer Deceiver' and 'Deceiver' is superb. You can't go wrong with this album. It should be recognised as the utter classic it is.
