EDITORS’ NOTES

On Sin After Sin, Judas Priest shed the thick, bluesy wallop of their first two records and embrace violently speeding metal. "Sinner” announces their tight new sound with twin guitars laying down interlocking riffs under Rob Halford’s infernal vocal acrobatics. They get even more aggressive on “Let Us Prey / Call for the Priest,” marrying blistering melodic runs with proto-speed-metal drum blasts, and “Dissident Aggressor,” which foreshadows the rise of extreme metal with its maelstrom of double kicks, breakneck time changes, and feral shrieks.

Their best studio album

Sin After Sin is my favorite studio album by Judas Priest. The first three songs...Sinner, Diamonds and Rust, and Starbreaker.... are all great. The second half is my favorite half (or album side for us vinyl lovers) of any Judas Priest album. Dissident Aggressor is a very strong and savage closing track. Kudos to guest drummer Simon Phillips, who kicks butt on this. A great album!

Starbreaker!

Lotta good stuff here. You don’t hear much about their music before Hell Bent For Leather or British Steel, but their earlier stuff is really amazing. Check out Starbreaker and Dissident Aggressor if you need convincing. Classic Priest!

SINNER!

Nuff said. Roams theskyways, searching for those carcasses of war!
