Product Description


While Van Halen thrived following a lead-singer switch (the first time around, at least!), Judas Priest aren't likely to be that lucky. It's due not so much to the departure of founding vocalist Rob Halford and the entrance of stellar replacement Tim "Ripper" Owens as it is the waning interest in the old-school metal Priest spearheaded. That and the fact that Demolition's songs--all 70 minutes of them--are pedestrian and often silly. Priest still has the dual-guitar onslaught of K.K. Downing and Glenn Tipton powering the music, and Owens's vocals soar. But many of the disc's 13 often-too-lengthy cuts lack the catchy hooks of "Turbo Lover" or the driving force of "Living After Midnight." There's a surprising lack of power in "Jekyll and Hyde," "One on One," and the sappy "Close to You." "Feed on Me" and "Machine Man" are winners, but, as a whole, Demolition inflicts little damage. --Katherine Turman

5.0 out of 5 stars Reluctant to listen to 'Halfordless' Priest. May 30 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album was a decade old before i bought it.
I have all of Judas Priest's studio albums.
When I did finally listen, it was fantastic.
Hard, fast and rough metal.
This album and the previous one (Jugulator) were the only two with Tim Owens on vocals.

3.0 out of 5 stars IT'S JUST.....ALLRIGHT March 29 2002
Format:Audio CD
When I heard that Priest were putting out a new cd with Ripper, again, I thought well let's just hope it's better than Jugulator. Well, it is, however, there is only one Priest and that contains the likes of MR. ROB HALFORD. Again, this is an allright cd, a wee bit different than one might think. If you are a die hard priest fan and can remember to the first time you listened to TURBO and thought WHAT!!!! Well, you are kind of thinking that again. The cd does have some good tracks on it with better guitar work on it than on Jugulator. The additional tracks of RAPID FIRE and THE GREEN MANILISHI are just not the same without ROB HALFORD. This version of the MANILISHI is slowed down a bit and just isn't the same. There is a few good songs on this cd such as MACHINE MAN, ONE ON ONE, HELL IS HOME, BLOODSUCKERS, IN BETWEEN, AND METAL MESSIAH. This cd is for one to buy if you are a Priest fan. Maybe, ROB will be back...soon!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This Album is Incredible! Jan. 12 2002
Format:Audio CD
I admit that in 1997 I was one of the first in line to buy the Jugulator album. I hurried home and threw it in the cd player. After listening I took the cd out and didn't listen to it again for 4 years. I thought, "How could they pick this guy to replace Rob Halford? He sounds like a bowel movement of Halfords."
I then heard in April of '01 that JP were putting out another album. I managed to get an early copy of the album and was blown away! The first two tracks cut through your head like a broken rusty buzzsaw! This album is deep and reflective lyrically, especially on "Hell is Home" and "Feed on Me." And Musically Tipton and Downing have recaptured their magic. What makes this particular recording special is that they have re-recorded 2 old Priest songs with "Ripper" Owens. "Rapid Fire" and "The Green Manalishi." Owens has proven himself worthy of the Priest. No one can equal Halford, but Owens is doing fine. I've even popped "Jugulator" in a few times since the release of "Demolition" and can hear the progression. I now highly recommend both albums.

4.0 out of 5 stars Demolishing the past! July 28 2001
Format:Audio CD
It's been four years' wait, but Judas Priest are finally back with another album. I've played my copy three times in 24 hours, and I'm loving it.
I'm a die-hard fan, but I wasn't big on the last one, Jugulator. The live album that followed, '98 Live Meltdown, won me over in a big way, however. Singer Rob Halford quit almost a decade ago (his last gig with the Priest was in Toronto in August of '91), and Tim "Ripper" Owens took over from him in the late 90's. So, to get you up to speed, Jugulator was OK. I'd give it 5.5 out of 10. Ripper's got an amazing voice (reportedly better than Rob's these days), but the lyrics were juvenile and the music was a tad monotonous. Demolition, the new album, is much better, and that's only after three listens.
The lyrics are still pretty juvenile in spots ("Don't access the site/or beware his megabyte/no virus scan/detects the man" from "Cyberface"), but on some tracks we're getting back to respectability! Besides, with Halford insisting on singing endless tributes to the Power and Glory of Metal, he's not doing much better.
The sound and production of the album is still similar to Jugulator. The guitars are good and chunky, the bass, usually lacking on Priest albums, is in your face, and Scott Travis is seriously kickin' it on the drum kit. The guitars and vocals sound a tad too processed, though. A little too much tinkering with the effects racks. Ripper's not screaming as much as he used to. I imagine his voice is already starting to wear, considering the great job he did on tour. Still, he rips it out for a couple tracks and it's very welcome.
Songwriting-wise, the band are coming up with much more interesting riffs than last time.

3.0 out of 5 stars There are some who call me...TIM! Oct. 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
First off, I LIKE Tim "Ripper" Owens and his performance. He's got a powerful voice and not too shabby of a Rob impersonation (though of course it's not entirely Halford quality). As far as "replacement" singers go, I believe Judas Priest fared much better, and made a better choice, than Iron Maiden did a few years back. At least JP realized that they needed to acquire someone who was somewhat similar to his predecessor.
Jugulator was an interesting album, showing Priest making an attempt at borderline death metal. I don't believe it was the musical failure that some do, but I can understand how some may not have appreciated it.
As far as Demolition goes, I found all of the...most of the...a few of the songs to be quite strong, but I got the feeling that some of them were leftovers from Glenn's solo album. Speaking of Glenn's solo album (of which this appears to be Part 2), he has also taken that horrible digitally processed guitar sound to new heights. That tone has dominated their sound since perhaps Ram It Down, but sounds even more like a microchip here. The "Defenders of the Faith" guitar muscle was the best they ever achieved and they would do well to find it again.
Songwise this record isn't too bad, aside from some of the frighteningly "techno" sound effects. "Subterfuge" is a great grooving headbanger, as is the bizarre "Metal Messiah"--though both suffer from those aforementioned techno flourishes. I also noticed some very bad editting in some songs, most notably in "Subterfuge", where there is an audible patch job done. I can't tell if they were linking riffs together or digitally repeating a couple bars, but at any rate it's pathetic to see on a major band's product.
