Judas Priest made 1986 summer thumbs up on Turbo.”Turbo Lover” and “Reckless” being absolute 1980`s top notch statements,second to none.
Extremely epic atmospheric and symphonic black metal album by Caladan Brood from 2013. Band has only two members Shield Anvil and Mortal Sword playing all instruments on this album with a few special guests.
30 years after release, “Priest…Live!” remains greatest live album and concert film in heavy metal history.
The album is generally not mentioned in the top category of metal live releases and usually loses out to Priest’s own “Unleashed In The East”. But it remains a masterpiece, a dynamic presentation of a heavy metal band in breathtakingly outstanding form. The show’s undeniable power is further documented on the live video which needs to be seen to be believed. Special credit must also be given to director Wayne Isham’s work which is brilliant, capturing the band in highly visual camera angles, using slow motion and excellent editing to compile a feast for both eyes and ears.
This latest self-titled release captures the same fine spirit Def Leppard had when they dominated the charts during the 80s. The first single, Let’s Go, and Man Enough, which comes very close to Queen’s Another One Bites The Dust, for example, will easily stand shoulder to shoulder with all those old Leppard’s hits. Great to have this band back!
Play this to your heavy metal digging friends and claim you have discovered a long lost british heavy band from the early 80’s and see them look at you as though you have just showed up with the holy grail. Of course it’s all from Sweden and 2015 but you could never tell, old-school metal can still be made sound fresh as on the days it was invented.
