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.
