Like so many other bands who have made comebacks, Judas Priest seem to be having trouble finding where they fit in a music scene that has moved on over the years of their hiatus. Consequently, they have formulated an album that is slightly schizophrenic in nature and heavily references earlier work that would bestir the memories of glory past. The album stylistically straddles early Priest to the later era Ram it Down and Painkiller albums and unfortunately, the songwriting just isn't as good as that which graced their earlier albums. There isn't a memorable vocal hook, guitar riff, or a melody line to grab the listener's attention and that's a real shame as that was this band's prime talent. The album's closing track 'Lochness' takes the prize for ludicrous metal kitsch. This track is unintentionally comic, very Spinal Tap and very long at 13 minutes. I don't mind a long song, but have something to say or contribute something musically worthwhile. This track did neither. Earlier JP albums contained a sense of fun and playfulness in amongst all the monsters and cyber-demons that inhabited the lyrical landscape. This album takes itself far too seriously and as such it renders 'Lochness' and other moments of metal 'drama' on the album as nothing more than overblown metal hype. Having said that, this album will still sell a million to the defenders of the Judas Priest faith.

I can't wait to see them live opening with this song! Can anybody give me an example of a 30-year old band coming back and delivering one of its best albums! The younger metal bands SHOULD LISTEN to this album- Judas Priest sound younger than the majority of the new bands which concentrate on technical virtuosity (if any) and not giving a damn soul about the music! This is especially true for the most American and Canadian bands from the last 10-15 years which sound so cold, trivial and void of emotion. There is so much power and passion in each Priest song!
"Judas Rising" is one of the best songs Priset have ever made.
" Deal with the devil" is a classical heavy rocker reminding of Halford's "Resurrection" album.
"Revolution"-one of my favorites-monumental, it carries the glory of "Heavy Duty"/Defenders of the Faith", but it's even better.
"Worth Fighting For"-ironically, not a perfect song, reminds me of my least favorite Priest albums ("Point of Entry"/"Turbo"), but I respect their decision to put it on the album, because it contains elements of everything they have done the last 30 years.
" Demonizer", Wheels of Fire", "Hellrider"-could have been taken from "Painkiller", with surprising operatic chants from Rob Halford on the third song. Magnificent, totally stunning Priest
"Angel"-one of Priest's finest ballads. Beautiful vocals from Rob (not like Demolition's "Lost And Found", which was dreadful)
Eulogy/Lochness- a majestic, epic closure of the album with heavy guitars and supreme vocals from Rob. Reminder of the prog-metal first Priest albums from the seventees.

People have often criticized Judas Priest for their albums but in this case, the critics are way off base. Judas Rising has to be considered one of the best metal songs of all-time because it follows in the tradition of Painkiller and You've Got Another Thing Comin'. Judas Rising is edgy and aggressive. Revolution is one of the best songs on the album.

Judas Priest is back on top with this classic metal album that will stand the test of time. It rocks!!

Rob Halford left Judas Priest shortly after the release of the most powerfull sounding album Priest has ever recorded with Rob Halford. This album is a real mix of some Priest old works and Halford new trend. My only complaint is probably the lack of real new introductions for the lyrics. In fact, Halford didn't bring the best he could, espescially after the 2 masterpieces "Resurection" and "Crucible". So, again, we're getting a lot of reference to the sentinel, sad wing of destiny and stained class.
That apart, Judas Priest latest album is the most original sounding metal record since "Resurection". 5 of the 10 tracks are totally original. Old Priest fans will recognize similitude with past Priest and Halford works in tracks : Wells of Fire, Angel, Deal with the Devil, Hell Rider and Eulogy. Some will probably be hoping for a harder sound, especially if you're taking in consideration that the lastest works of Halford and Priest are some of their hardest sounding records. In that case, you aren't gonna find what you're expecting, but that doesn't mean that it's necessarily a bad thing!
This album is also the first comeback of Priest into the progressive metal scene! Lockness is their real first progressive song since Sinner!
Final Verdict:
Priest fans : 4 stars (due to Halford obstination for recycling old ideas)
Casual metal listener : 5 stars
