So here is the second studio release from Judas Priest with Tim "The Ripper" Owens on vocal duties and four years after its powerful predecessor "Jugulator".

The album kicks off in strong and promising form with fast paced opener "Machine Man" chugging along for five minutes, but then seems to run out of inspiration by the time of the second track "One On One" which seems to drag on in a very un-Judas Priest fashion.

  The worst Judas Priest Album!
Angelic Storm - 04.03.2010 at 18:19  
Rating: 8 I actually really love "Demolition"! It is more of a Priest album than "Jugulator", as it has a variety in song styles which is in keeping with the Priest tradition. The inclusion of ballads especially was a definite sign that they wanted to leave the one dimensional nature of "Jugulator" behind. This is a double edge sword though, as it is a pretty mixed bag, and is not as consistent in its quality as "Jugulator" was. However, tracks like the storming opener "Machine Man", "Bloodsuckers", the ass kicking boogie metal of "Feed On Me" and the two ballads became instant faves for me, and they are just great heavy metal songs to me. The pounding robotic stomp of "Cyberface" is also a highlight of the album for me.

"Demolition" is without doubt the more schizophrenic of the two Ripper Owens fronted Priest albums. But it is also the most rewarding. And although its inconsistency just stops it from becoming a classic, there is more than enough great tracks to make it a worthy addition to the Priest catalogue. I like this album a lot!

IMO you are a big analyzer everyone has different taste and I believe that Jugulator is better than it but totally both of them as compared to 80's Priest albums aren't good.

Haha. Im just passionate about music, that's all!

I think Jugulator is more consistent, whereas Demolition is the more interesting of the two. As for comparing them to 80's Priest...Well, I prefer both of the Ripper Owens Priest albums to both "Turbo" and "Point Of Entry". I like both of those albums as well, but they are very inconsistent. You're right though, everyone has different tastes!

Rating: 7 I believe most people don't like this album because it has the holy words "Judas Priest" written on it. To me this album is far better than 90% of most metal releases, pretty sure it would be considered very good had it been released by an unknown band.

  It this was released by an unknown band it would probably be an unknown album.
