Song of the Week Jr- Running Wild

Alright everyone, we’re staying small this week, with Judas Priest returning to the halls of song of the week. Top 3 Renditions 1- Live in London Ripper once again tops a Priest song of the week. His voice is just full of character and his screams are expertly placed. The delivery on the ‘I rebelContinue reading “Song of the Week Jr- Running Wild”

Song of the Week- Breaking the Law

We’ve got an interesting song this week, notable for being a song that I disliked very much until I heard a certain version. No doubt about where that version is going to place today. Top 5 Renditions 1- ’98 Live Meltdown And here it is. Truthfully this is the only version I regularly listen to.Continue reading “Song of the Week- Breaking the Law”

Judas Priest: Firepower (Dual-Review)

And, at long last, we arrive at the final album (so far) in the Judas Priest discography. And it’s only fair that I let Holen take first crack at it. Welcome once again as we don our Ambiguously Gay Duo outfits and review the latest release from esteemed metal elder statesmen, Judas Fucking Priest. FirecrotchContinue reading “Judas Priest: Firepower (Dual-Review)”

Judas Priest: Redeemer of Souls (Dual-Review)

Yes, we’re back. The Priest dual-review series is still a thing, though at this stage it hardly resembles anything that could be actually called a series. Nevertheless, our second to last entry in the series is here, with 2014’s Redeemer of Souls. A very unassuming album in the Priest discography, and unfortunately for a goodContinue reading “Judas Priest: Redeemer of Souls (Dual-Review)”

Song of the Week- The Green Manalishi (With the Two-Pronged Crown)

Another week, another song. And this time we’re returning to the rarely used alternate format for the Peter Green era Fleetwood Mac classic. And so let us begin praising the original. I first heard this version in full very recently, and I was surprised at how well it stacked up against the Judas Priest coverContinue reading “Song of the Week- The Green Manalishi (With the Two-Pronged Crown)”

Judas Priest: Nostradamus (Dual-Review)

Judas Priest’s first foray into concept albums and double albums occurred at the same time, with this very album in 2008. It was undoubtedly uncharted territory for the band and critical and fan reception at the time was mixed. Of course that’s never stopped me from liking anything before, so let’s see if Nostradamus stoodContinue reading “Judas Priest: Nostradamus (Dual-Review)”

Song of the Week- Turbo Lover

Today we’re looking at was once the black sheep of the Judas Priest discography. Thankfully around the turn of the century it was reinstated in setlists. And even more thankfully we have enough versions that we don’t need to include the ‘High-octane’ mix. Top 5 Renditions 1- The Studio Version While I love live theContinue reading “Song of the Week- Turbo Lover”

Judas Priest: Angel of Retribution (Dual-Review)

Welcome back to the Judas Priest dual-review series. Yes, it is still a thing. We’ve just lost all semblance of punctuality. Anyway, we’re done with the Ripper era and Rob Halford returns to the Judas Priest dual-review series with Angel of Retribution, an album notable for being the first album in this series where bothContinue reading “Judas Priest: Angel of Retribution (Dual-Review)”

Song of the Week- Hell Bent For Leather

Song of the week (obviously) returns this week, though with a perhaps slightly confusing pick, given my review of the album that shares its title with this week’s song of the week. My opinion has changed a bit since then, so let us examine Judas Priest’s equivalent of “Paranoid”. Top 5 Renditions 1- ’98 LiveContinue reading “Song of the Week- Hell Bent For Leather”

Song of the Week- The Sentinel

Welcome everyone. Judas Priest returns to the Sunday special this week again with a song from my favorite album. Now let us begin. Top 5 Renditions 1- The Studio Version The studio version might not have be the most unchained version, but it’s my favorite version. It’s got an unrelenting heaviness and that makes forContinue reading “Song of the Week- The Sentinel”
