With 'Sin After Sin', Judas Priest released an album that I believe is one of the very first heavy metal albums. I don't deny that Black Sabbath invented the genre, but Judas Priest is mostly far away from the blues while Sabbath based all their early stuff in blues rythms and scales. So this might be one of the first albums on which a heavy metal band stepped away from the blues and started to define the the new born genre's own rules.

Rating: 8 A good album, though a bit tedious at times. Also, 'Dissident agressor' is just solid.

Rating: 9 Dissident Aggressor is hands down the best song on this album!
