5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Re Mastered, 23 April 2006
This review is from: British Steel (Audio CD)
There`s been some very silly reviews of this album, time to put the record straight. This for me `isnt priests greatest moment but it`s certainly up there with "Screaming" & "Turbo". This album heralds the new dawn that was NWOBHM. Some albums define certain moments & this is one of those.......

Choke a bloc bursting with great tunes from begining to end this is how Metal was allways ment to be....A combination of tempos, not all speed not all slow. Chorus`s you can walk away singing & great riffs that`ll have you playing air guitar !

From the opening "Rapid Fire" the gloves are off. "Metal Gods" "Breaking The Law" "Grinder" "United" & my personnal fav "You Don`t Have To Be Old To Be Wise" the list is endless. If all you like from your Metal is Thrash & Bash then this won`t be for you. Remeber this album came out over 25yrs ago it`s not going to sound like an album recorded last year !!!!

This is a piece of H/M history & for my money stands up very well even in this day & age & lets be fare the songs on this album make the likes of Metallica, Megadeath, Helloween & the whole thrash scene look pathetic in comparison. Incedentaly there`s a fantastic documentry about the making of this album under the "Classic Albums" monicker available from Amazon under the DVD section well worth checking out ! Highly recommended
