Product Description

Two CD 2008 release by Judas Priest. In the realm of Heavy Metal, there has never been a double disc concept album that has managed to balance a thought-provoking storyline with metallic thunder. Long in the works, Nostradamus takes epic storytelling to a whole new level, as it recounts the life of this mysterious, world-known 16th Century French prophet. Most bands of this high stature would be happy to play it safe. But not Judas Priest, who continue to take chances and break new ground. No other rock band could have pulled off such a grand statement, and Judas Priest have raised the bar once more with Nostradamus. 23 tracks.

Every once a while comes along something memorable.
If you love music, whether it be Araya's scream, Nile's wall of sound, Chopin's touch or Beethoven's genius, you'll be left moved in complete adoration with this release. If however, you're still at the stage of only enjoying the speed and anger that metal provides so well, if different genres leave you cold and unimpressed, than wait some other year to get this. It is heavy in intent, in sound, but not with anger. It isn't Screaming for Vengeance; it's actually much deeper and much more ambitious. If anything, it is very classical; but any fan of classical and metal as well will tell you that the two genres have very much in common. Add to that that the entire thing is a minor key, you'll be wholly rewarded for your love of music.

Format: Audio CD
I was really worried about this album. I started reading some of the early bad reviews and was a little shocked as to how much some people hated Nostradamus. Even more worrisome were the mixed reviews, often coming from long-time Priest fans. Many liked it, but they were far from blown away.

I'm definitely and strongly in the "love" catagory with this CD. I can totally see why some fans don't like it. Most of the terrible bad reviews I read came from dyed-in-the-wool metal fans, and yeah, you're not going to love it if all you eat, breathe, and sleep is metal. I'm not meaning to be condescending here. People who don't love just metal, but also classical, and especially opera, are more likely to love Nostradamus.

The production is OK, (self produced this one is), but as many reviewers stated, the drums are oddly buried in the mix. Maybe Scott Travis isn't even the right drummer to be playing these kind of grooves (plods?), I don't know. He sure does wail on "Persecution" though, among others. Still it's like a weird 80's drum sound from a Leatherwolf album or something.

KK and Glenn -- awesome as ever. Maybe better than ever. There is everything a guitar lover could want on Nostradamus. Lots of natural guitar tones, distortion, crazy riffs and spastic solos, even a bloody flamenco! Mental solos. Unbelievable.

Halford -- awesome. On some songs he's really reaching back to his love of opera, no doubt of that. Sings in Italian on one song. Kind of jarring, but it suits the whole epic nature of the music. Yes, there are screams. He's learned to make the screams more effective by using them sparingly, more strategically. At the same time a lot of fans want to hear him scream at the top of his lungs again, like he did on Painkiller, and I can understand that.

Nostradamus (Super Deluxe Boxset)

The two previous reviews have it right. As an older fan who has followed Judas Priest from the early 80's, this album is welcome relief from the dirth of power chord only, nu metal and shock rock, which requires little or no musical virtuosity. Priest have proven themselves over the years and a concept album is nothing new to older Rock fans. I give credit to Judas Priest to produce a concept album because it is risky in today's instant gratification world. For the skeptical, please listen to this album in it's entirety. It's not the type of album that is a all catchy hooks and chorus. The music will diversify with each listen. Remember, these guys are the pros and they deliver the goods. For the fans that want straight ahead power chords and metal riffs, this album has that and more as this record leans toward Heavy Metal's classical influence. For those that wanted another Painkiller or Screaming for Vengeance this ain't it. However, some of the elements are there. And the level of guitar mastery has certainly progressed from their earlier albums.
As a fan of both Lord of the Rings and Gladiator, (movies and soundtracks) Nostradamus fits perfectly. It has adventure and intensity. I'd also like to see this album played live in full as I'm sure many older fans have seen Priest play their classics a few time over by this time. How many oldies tours do we have to see from the great acts? Bring on the new material and let's have it right between the eyes!

Format: Audio CD
Judas Priest is one of the most talented heavy metal bands. They started almost 40 years ago with a mixture of hard rock and progressive rock, then turned to heavy metal, speed metal, whatever they call it. They are so diverse, it is difficult to define their style. None of their albums look alike, each and every one of them is different. They always try new things, and, besides Turbo, never failed. But with Nostradamus they have outdone themselves. Nostradamus is metal opera, and at the same time, vintage Priest. I don't think Rob Halford has ever been able to show the whole beauty and range of his voice. Deep Purple's Don Airey is probably the best keyboardist one could think of to invite for such an ambitious project. Lost Love and New beginning are the two songs I would remove from the song list, but the rest is so great! A stunning album, a masterpiece from one of the best bands ever!
