See, see what you've done!! All you Nostradamus haters, you've scared them away from trying different things and made them write thisJUDAS PRIEST guitarist Glenn Tipton said that fans should not expect wild experimentation. "Sometimes in the past we may have come under fire for being too adventurous musically – so we have listened," he said. "From start to finish, 'Redeemer Of Souls' is 18 songs of pure classic PRIEST metal."
Agreed on everything. I think the album absolutely will have some good stuff on it. Even if half of the album is filler, that's still 9 great new Priest songs to enjoy.The outlooks aren't the best but I hate seeing all of you so pessimistic. Even if it fucking sucks (which it won't), I have high hopes for it.
About the song: it's quite generic and simply-constructed, nothing really new but the vocal/guitar melodies are still nice and so is the solo (which could've been a bit longer). I'm not surprised but neither am I disappointed. The worst aspect seems to be the production. Guitars sound weird.
I don't agree with that... the new Priest song is better than at least half of what was on Made Of Metal, or Nostradamus, and it can hold it's own with most of what's on Angel Of Retribution too.I think all songs from Halford's Made Of Metal are better than this one, that's a great album. And all Nostradamus and Angel Of Retribution songs are also better.
Well, it is a bit generic, but Priest have released so much defining, and influential material over the years, that at this stage in their careers, I'm quite happy with them just sounding like typical, and standard Priest. The production could have used a bit more oomph, but it's catchy, and I like the melody. The band have certainly made far worse songs in their time, that's for sure. lolIt sounds painfully generic to me. Reminds me of a song but can't remember which one right now.
