After Priest made a more slick, poppy sound on Turbo, they bounced back with their heaviest album to date. It screams, punches, roars, and howls. Rob's voice is very schreechy on this album-YIPPEE!! Although Blood Red Skies does have some synth effects, it is still one of Priest's best songs. Many did not like this album at the time of its release, saying it was kind of filler. Nothing could be further from the truth. Nothing is filler about it. it is all very heavy, very metal-centric music. It is very good.
