I agree with angel of disease

The subject matter is actually brilliantly sad and well written all around.

Victim of Changes was a masterpiece and the lyrics was so well thought of that it became a huge success and is still to this day I think, is the most looked at.

United (from British Steel) is too slow/fast/cheesy for appearing in this poll?

That is certainly the chessiest song they ever wrote. Your average football anthem is less cheesy.

Sad Wings of Destiny is the finest album ever recorded (IMHO).

'Victim of Changes' builds/maintains the kind of tension that you don't normally find in mid-pacer. They might have got a little pan crazy during the ethereal part; but, I even like that part too. The crescendo with Halford's display of vocal supremacy and the guitar solo = awesome.

Voted A Touch of Evil, really good song. I really like Night Comes Down too which wasn't in the list.

I was torn between "Victim of Changes" and "Beyond the Realms of Death" but opted for "Victim" It's just such a complete song. Atmosphere, lyrics, amazing performance from the Glen and KK, not to mention one of Rob's best vocals.

I go with Touch of Evil. great solo, great vocal. Judas Priest's Pain killer is one of the best metal albums ever made.

A Touch of Evil it has got to be for me. Although Angel was very good too.

"Beyond the Realms of Death." That is such an amazing, emotional song. I love them all, but yeah, that's my favorite.

This is choosing between my favourite Priest songs... but ultimately I pick "Dreamer Deceiver" over "Beyond the Realms of Death".
