Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Réalisé en 1984, Defender Of The Faith est pour les puristes le dernier bon album réalisé par Judas Priest. Après trois bombes produites par le label Columbia (British Steel, Point Of Entry et Screaming For Vengeance), le groupe affine jusqu'à la trame la formule de son thrash metal. Exit l'importance des mélodies qui illuminaient encore Screaming For Vengeance : la formation va désormais droit au but, sans s'encombrer de fioritures, avec des rythmiques plombées et des hymnes titanesques et fracassants (dont "Some Heads Are Gonna Roll") qui annoncent le death metal naissant et font du groupe un héritier plus que crédible de Black Sabbath. Notons qu'il s'agit là de la version remastérisée de ce classique des années 80, augmenté d'une version live de "Heavy Duty" et d'une ballade inédite enregistrée en studio, "Turn On Your Light". --Hervé Comte --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Defenders of the Faith in my opinion was Judas Priest's best album. I know everybody prefers British Steel, Painkiller, Screaming for Vengance and Turbo, but Defenders of the Faith is Judas Priest's most solid recording. The best songs on the album are: Freewheel Burning because Rob does a truly amazing vocals, Jawbreaker because the guitar solo is a true classic metal solo, The Sentinel because everything about it is good. This album is by far ahead of the rest and is classic metal at its best.

Defenders of the Faith in my opinion is way better than British Steel, which is good, but the most of the songs were poppy and radio-oriented. This one is heavier and darker. Freewheel Burning is one of the fastest Priest songs with killer vocals from Halford, The Sentinel, Eat Me Alive and heavy Duty/Defenders of the Faith are classic metal anthems. There are no weak songs on the album (like the terrible United on British Steel). DOTF is among my top three priest albums.

Judas Priest's 1984 release Defenders of the Faith is my third favorite 1980s Priest album behind Screaming for Vengeance and barely behind British Steel. Many of the tracks off Defender are better than British Steel but it is not quite as solid as the 1980 classic.
Defenders offers some of the best all-time Priest tracks: "The Sentinel," "Love Bites," and "Some Heads Are Gonna Roll." They have a unique guitar sound that is difficult to explain in words. The sound gives me images of a futuristic gladiator arena where metal gods do battle overlooked by the feared Sentinel. What would that sound like? Listen to this album. My favorite track, however, is the power ballad "Night Comes Down." It is beautiful with, as one would expect, amazing Rob Halford vocals.
The rest of the album is fairly solid. The single "Freewheel Burning" is fast and furious. Although it is not one of my favorite tracks, hearing Halford sing at breakneck speed is incredible! "Jawbreaker" is a Sentinel-style song with that unique guitar sound. "Rock Hard Ride Free" is a catchy rocker. "Eat Me Alive" got the PMRC leaders' pantyhose in a knot with the highly suggestive lyrics (probably giving some guys the creeps now that Halford has officially "come out") and the line "I'm gonna force you at gunpoint." It is not one of their better tracks. "Heavy Duty/Defenders of the Faith" starts out like "Eat Me Alive II" with some risqué lyrics but ends up being a salute to metal. The title track is just a 1:30 chanting of "We are defenders of the faith." I'm not a big fan of songs that celebrate the band, its fans, and what they do (Ram it Down has a lot of self congratulatory songs like "Heavy Metal" and "I'm a Rocker"). Though it ends on a low note, most of Defenders of the Faith is excellent and one of Priest's best.

Following on the heels of the successful 'Screaming for Vengeance' (1982), with the same artist doing the cover, 'Defenders of the Faith' (1984) did not disappoint. Long before speed became the watchword for hardcore metalheads, Priest refused to follow up their previous hit single ("You've Got Another Thing Comin'") and released the speedy "Freewheel Burning" and the menacing "Love Bits" as videos and the guitar drenched "Some Heads Are Gonna Roll" as the first single. The result was very little radio airplay, but a mammothly successful tour.
The tour is documented on several live cuts released on the Priest remasters, but only one is inlcuded here - "Heavy Duty/Defenders of the Faith." (FYI: You can obtain live versions (from the same show) of "Jawbreaker" on 'Sin After Sin' remaster, "Rock Hard Ride Free" from the 'Priest Live' remaster, "Night Comes Down" on the 'Ram It Down' remaster, and "Grinder" from the 'British Steel' remaster). The studio track, "Turn Your Light On", is nothing more than a disposable power-ballad and a reminder of the downturn that Priest would take with the successor record, 'Turbo' (1986) (i.e., it is an outtake from the 1985 studio sessions).
