A band with absolutely nothing to prove to anyone releases one of the best albums in their incredible career, 50 whole years after their debut. Next time someone tells you that you should lower your expectations and just be grateful when a legacy band puts out new music, even when that music is objectively subpar/shite, slap them in the face with this album.

Invincible Judas Priest.

Metallica take notes, this is how you age gracefully!


why pick on Metallica out of the blue?!
Also, for me Metallica have redeemed themselves with the last two albums.


Because the last two Judas Priest albums are insanely better than the last two Metallica albums


That does not back up the statement that Metallica did not age gracefully.

As someone who doesn't really like Judas Priest or regular heavy metal all that much, this is so good

Oh my, what an overwhelming energy! Somewhere in the galaxy some lonely K.K. must be crying in the corner right now. I listen to this art of piece and just can't believe my ears. I can't believe that a band as old as Judas Priest can produce such strong album. Bravo!

What an album, what a performance.
Rob Halford still sounds as fantastic as ever. I am absolutely gobsmacked how a band with 3 70+ year olds, including a 76 year old, can have so much energy. Inspiring stuff!

The album starts really strong, with the first three songs being the best of the album. The rest are not on the same level, but there are loads of catchy choruses and great riffs. I think Escape From Reality is probably the weakest song. I haven't heard the bonus tracks, but maybe they could've included one of them in the standard edition instead of Escape From Reality.
Overall it's a phenomenal effort for a band 50+ years into their career.

One of their best releases. Very energetic and modern yet sounds partly like good old Painkiller record

*not to be the Iron Maiden hater that I usually am but this stomps all over anything those chaps have released in the past 30 years.


Why compare the music of these 2 bands anyway? When IM debuted, JP released their 6th album, so it's not even the same generation. The music both bands play is quite different within the genre they both represent, the singers are not very much alike either.

For the same reason Nikarg gave in the staff pick:

They're both legacy bands and I feel like Bruce Dickinson is often defended for his sub-par vocal performances due to his age when Halford is still spot-on. Anyway I don't want to drag this out, I'll gladly admit I'm extremely biased as I always preferred Priest's style of heavy metal (you're right, they sound very different).
