I've heard people compare Beyond The Realms of Death to Maiden...
Priest have been in the studio recording demos, says Faulkner, and plan to start recording the actual album in January.
Last album had one of the worst guitar sounds ever (for a successful band).
I got the impression they were trying hard to make it sound 70s.
I loved it. Sounded just like Judas Priest to me.
I would love if the next album is in the style is songs like Walls of Valhalla and Sword of Domocleus. they were my favorite, and actually kind of Maiden-ish. Amazing guitar harmonies.
Don't you think Children of the Damned has the same feel (and obviously the same slow/fast and Heavy structure) ?
I want them to do what Maiden did, and allow themselves to be more 'prog', in other words worry less about song structures and lengths. Like Maiden, Priest don't need to worry about the fanbase because it's massive enough and we'll all buy whatever they put out. I'm talking more songs in the direction of Walls of Valhalla and A Sword of Domocles. And maybe I've said this already, but those two songs actually remind me of Maiden.
They actually did that, with Nostradamus, and the reaction of fanbase and pretty much anyone was lukewarm at best.
Incorrect. I think it's their 2nd best album. Way better than the by-the-book uninspired badly-produced shit that they released afterwards.
Nostradamus is definitely much better than the undeserved dislike that it gets from most people.
I agree that Nostradamus is good. However, I can see what the fanbase might be griping about: it's not an easy digest. I think most of the songs on there work better when listened to as a whole album but god it's pretty long and there's risk of boring stretches. I really enjoyed it when it came out and I've revisited it recently and it definitely holds up. I still think, however, that Angel of Retribution is a more solid Priest album. Maybe the problem with Nostradamus was that it felt like Priest were trying a bit too hard to be something they're not really?
Redeemer of Souls isn't that interesting, it's fairly generic. I enjoyed Halls of Valhalla, Sword of Damocles, Down in Flames....but as mentioned elsewhere it doesn't feel particularly inspired or original or anything. It's a bit soulless.
You probably have a point. I still think Angel is strong and as far as 'classic' Priest goes, it's one of the best (imo). Nostradamus isn't your typical Priest, but it's also very good.
I agree! Desert Plains and Heading Out To The Highway are among my favourite Priest tracks, but there's no denying British Steel is an absolute classic.
Could never get into it, although it has some great tracks. Very much a transitional album though. It doesn't have the grit of Killing Machine, but it also lacks the skilled songwriting of British Steel.
Reading Festival, August 22 1975 (Ultra-Rare 8mm Footage)
This never-before-seen video is easily the most historically important, and also the earliest known, Judas Priest concert footage to ever surface yet. It is from their legendary performance at the 1975 Reading and Leeds Festival, and was shot on a Super 8 camera.
