For me Judas Priest is the second most influential metal band ever, after Black Sabbath. I'm interested in what you consider to be their most influential album? Personally I have never been a fan of Judas Priest, so I haven't listened that much to their earlier albums, but I guess it is one of their 70 albums.

Holy shit you're on a tear with these polls. I don't know which one is more influential because I haven't talked to every band in existence to get their thoughts on which one influenced them more, so I'll vote for Painkiller because it's my favorite.

Though I voted for Sad Wings, I think both Stained Class and Sad Wings were very influential albums.

I'm voting British Steel. It was their break through album, I'm sure it's their most influential to date.

....but it helped launch NWOBHM


Mmmmm, no. Judas Priest were never part of the NWOBHM
British Steel was just released during that period. Just like Ace Of Spades by Motorhead who are also not part of the NWOBHM.

i didnt say priest was NWOBHM. i said british steel helped launch NWOBHM. british steel helped set the template alot of nwobhm bands used to make their albums same with black sabbaths heaven and hell/mob rule. sabbath wasnt NWOBHM but their 1980/1981 releases helped influence many NWOBHM bands

SCCCRRREAAAMMMMIIINGGG....SCCRREEEAAMMMINGGG FOR VENGEANCE!

I picked this album based off a personal level more than anything...because K.K. and Tipton's guitar work just blew up all over this album!

K.K.'s whammy bar work-outs and leads are just chaos, while Tipton wrote some of the best riffs in a long while.

Sad Wings, Stained Class, or Painkiller. The first two I say mainly because whenever I've heard bands talking about being influenced by Priest, those 2 albums are the ones that I see mentioned the most. I mentioned Painkiller, because that has to be one of the most imitated albums of all time. So many power/heavy bands tried to emulate the style on that album after it's release, but still, it has never been bettered in that particular metal style.

Although it is not my favorite, I said British Steel because it launched them into a higher level of popularity, and remains to be a classic today.

Dentura
Shadow King
I vote Sad Wings, it was a major leap up from Rocka Rolla in terms of songwriting and creativity, and was also heavier than the previous album (and one of the heaviest albums of its day).

'Painkiller' and just after 'Screaming For Vengeance'. These are the best recordings in the Priest's discography.

Painkiller is the absolute definition of heavy metal at its finest.
