Product Description

Amazon.ca

While the title of this 1979 release perfectly fits the band's increasing S&M-inspired leather-and-chains imagery, it's a mature and fairly sharp thematic departure from its largely death-obsessed predecessor, Stained Class. While the Priest could have easily fallen into the same stultifying goth clichés as forebears like Black Sabbath, they expanded both their musical range and lyrical focus here, shrewdly burnishing the album's commercial potential in the bargain. Kicking off with the upbeat "Delivering the Goods" and the Skynyrd-worthy arena boogie of "Rock Forever," the band blasts through material that's as wide as Sin After Sin's, but better focused. There are expected metal clichés--a big rock ballad ("Before the Dawn") and some expected bad-ass posturing (the title track and "Killing Machine")--but even the band's occasional bowing to gothic expectations is informed with a sense of surprise and adventure, as witnessed by their cover of the disturbing Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac track "The Green Manalishi (With the Two-Pronged Horn)." That much of this album's tack became inspiration--and then cliché--for the widespread metal revolution that Judas Priest helped foster is only testament to their enduring legacy. This digitally remastered edition features expanded artwork, new commentary by the band, and complete lyrics, as well as the bonus tracks "Fight for You Life" (a studio outtake later incorporated into "Rock Hard, Ride Free") and a manic live version "Riding on the Wind." --Jerry McCulley --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Rating: 3 ½ stars out of 5 = very good
The year was 1979; I was at "Big Apple Records" looking for new additions for my record collection when I ran across "Hell Bent for Leather." The front cover of the album pictured a white Zombie like face wearing a black studded leather helmet with blood covered shattered sun glasses, looking like some neo Nazi biker from hell; WOW, I had to have it! I hurriedly went home & played the record. I was immediately blown away by the sounds & power contained on the vinyl grooves, I loved it!
"Hell Bent for Leather" led me into the rest of the 70's Priest albums, "Rocka Rolla," "Sad Wings of Destiny," "Sin After Sin," Stained Glass," & "Unleashed in the East," though with the exception (maybe) of "Unleashed in the East," "Hell Bent for Leather" was my favorite Priest album. I literally wore the groves out of the record. So you might be thinking why did I give "Hell Bent" 3 1/2 stars then? Well if you asked me back then I'd of been shocked myself, surely this album deserves a 5 star masterpiece rating, right? Well... As fast as I was enthralled with Priest, within two years I tired of them. Their music just didn't hold up in the long run. I found it repetitive; many riffs recycled from better previous acts. Their music was just too lumbering, it was not sophisticated & exotic enough, but there are songs on this album that still grab my attention "Killing Machine" with it's message of cold & ominous killer riff, also "Burning Up" (being 18 back then I didn't know Rob was gay, LOL!) a testimonial of sexual heat. The truly beautiful ballads, "Evening Star," "Before the Dawn" & the killer title cut "Hell Bent for Leather." These songs still rock my roll, but the ludicrously banal pep song for metal misfits (Yes, I was one, still am) "Take on the World" turned my gut even back then, more so now. As for the rest, they just don't move me one way or another anymore, but it did for that 18 year old I once was.

To start I would like to say that this is one of my favourites albums by Judas Priest. It has great riffs and abosolutely stunning vocals. Now to the songs:
Delivering The Goods: The album begins with great power.
It has a great bridge and cool parts like "We'll beat you to submission So you might as well surrender"
Rock Forever: One of my favourites. The chorus is incredible and Rob's vocals are absolutely stellar."I'm in love, so in love
And I can't stop talking 'bout my rock forever"
Evening Star: A more comercial sounding song but it's cool anyway with a good lead.Evening star I can see the light
Evening star guiding me so bright
Hell Bent For Leather: An absolutely PRIEST CLASSIC that just screams perfect from start to finish. It's really cool to play along and I think that this is Glen Tipton's best song by himself. "Hell bent, hell bent for leather
Hell bent, hell bent for leather
There's many who tried to prove that they're faster
But they didn't last and they died as they tried"
Take On The World: This one is quite similar to United and it's meant to be played in a stadium. I really like it, the chorus is enjoyable and it has a good vibe."Put yourself in our hands, so our voices can be heard,And together we will take on all the world."
Burnin' Up: This one was written by Rob Halford and K.K. Downing like Savage from the Stained Class album, and it is superb.
It's a very cool song if you know what I mean. It has an excellent middle-part that proves that Rob Halford is indeed the METAL GOD!"I know you feel the same I know you feel the flame Staring deep inside of you Burnin' you up, breaking you down Breakin' you out in a cold sweat....
