Priest as a cross between flower children and Lynyrd Skynyrd's road crew.  This does not compute.

/ weird as fark seeing Halford with long hair

Like all metal, Judas Priest sounds better with harsh vocals. Painkiller.

That's an amazing cover (first time I heard it I was finally persuaded to buy Judas Priest's album - which was one of their better late albums, but still Death's version of that song is better).

Just a couple this week -
Chapel of Disease - Descend to the Tomb (death; FDA Rekotz is becoming one of my favorite labels quite quickly)

Skeletal Remains - Extirpated Vitality (death; love the bass towards the end)

Azarath - Holy Possession (cats)

Beyond - Appearance from Beyond (death)

and finally making it to youtube -

Why does every SHMHC devolve into everybody posting a brazillion links to dumb songs from dumb bands they like instead of discussing the song at hand?

Put "Dreamer Deceiver" into context of the mid-70s.  Sad Wings of Destiny was Priest's first real "metal" album.  They still had their RockaRolla look but the songs were definitely more in line with what was to come next.   One of my favorites actually.

One of their best IMO.  The cover artwork was being considered for tattoo until the cost and size came into play.

Cause everyone has heard Priest before and circlejerking over how awesome they are for the bazillionth time is boring as f*ck.

Cool shiat:

Tyrant Goatgaldrakona (Hungarian death metal)
Arkham Witch (Lovecraftian trad)
Stygian Shore (So old school it was produced by Mark Shelton)
Caladan Brood (Hope you like Summoning cause these guys f*cking love 'em)
Iron Claw (probably the best proto-metal song. Dat riff)
Marauder (Greek melodic metal)

Early Priest ranged from rather ridiculous ballads to ridiculously heavy (often on the same album)

Also, not to give the impression that I dislike Priest or anything: Sad Wings is my favorite Priest album (narrowly beating out Stained Class), and one of my favorite albums period. Every song on this album is essentially flawless (yes, even Epitaph), though the Unleashed in the East versions of Victim of Changes, The Ripper, Genocide, and Tyrant are the superior versions.

Forgot to mention that Arkham Witch, Stygian Shore, and Caladan Brood are on Bandcamp.

Very similar to their other track "Beyond the Realms of Death." But a little softer. I dig it.

I will fight anyone who doesn't think this fits in the realm of metal. Listen to the lyrics. And the high pitch yowls. Born from the blues, but hardened by experience. THAT is metal as fark.

http://youtu.be/BnHKZgRrUow Angantyr from Denmark has a new album 'Forvist' which is not as good as their classic 'Haevn' but still solid and remarkable. it gallops in a raw and mean viking norwegian way, but has the sick melodies of satanic swedish style black metal. unique but orthodox sound.

http://youtu.be/kiEC8PcebhE same guy from Angantyr has another band Make A Change...Kill Yourself which is similar in its melodies and atmosphere but is more on a droning DSBM tip. new album is called 'Fri.'
 
2013-02-17 04:30:49 PM  
Also, HighZoolander, I went to high school with these guys, and seeing as how they're just starting to put out stuff, you would probably want to get in on these guys early, as would anyone who like bands like Antediluvian, Beherit, Blasphemy, etc.

Don't know if I listened to too much metal for way too long or what the hell happened but anymore it all sounds like so many albums I've heard for years. With little exception most bands just sound like a crapload of others to me. But I do appreciate you putting up all those links to check out, and I did.

Anybody listen to the new God Seed? I was going to get it but after listening to a few songs on youtube I'm not too sure. It sounds like more Ov Hell which I could never really get into. Looks like compared to KIng, Infernus is obviously the better song writer.

2013-02-17 07:23:47 PM  
My favorite Judas Priest album is Screaming for Vengeance, with Painkiller taking a close second.  British Steel comes in third.

However, one of my favorite Judas Priest songs isn't on any of those albums:

The Sentinel

This song gets my adrenaline every time I hear it.

this farking android browser sucks farking infected cock. cant get html. heres a great black metal band called MUTILATION RITES https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VQwI0c2n8g&feature=youtube_gdata_play er
 
2013-02-17 07:43:54 PM  
In the mid-80's I got into Priest because I saw Sin after Sin for 2.98 in the bargain tape bin. Sinner did it for me. At that point, it was screaming for vengeance, hell bent, etc...

Delivering the Goods is an awesome song.

Breakin the Law is my pace song when I run.
 
2013-02-17 07:58:02 PM  
I don't particularly care for Judas Priest, but I like a lot of stuff no one else likes, so it's one of those "who cares, here's a pair of ear buds, listen as loud as you want and I'll do the same for you" kinda things. I'm the same way with food. "What do you mean, you want lemon with that? Lemons aren't even a food item! Disgust! DISGUST!!! but if you want some, here's a box, go clean off my pretty tree that just happens to grow lemons."

I should mention I do acknowledge the contributions JP has made to metal in general. Each generation draws inspiration from the one before it with their art. I do it with my menus and recipes (Chef-type activity IS an art, too), painters study the master painters, musicians listen to a wide variety of music and draw from all of it. So while I don't listen to JP on purpose, I won't pick on people who do (unless I'm just teasing them).

Now that I have discussed the song at hand, well, the band anyway, to at least partially appease Herr Redcorn, I want to mention to the NorCal metal heads - especially those in the San Fran area who like Folk/Pagan metal - that Helsott, Ensiferum, Tyr, Heidevolk and Trollfest are going to be at the DNA Lounge in SF on April 3. Sadly, that is a Wednesday, so if you've never seen them live and you like those bands, then you may want to take a personal day if it's a work day for you.

I've seen Ensiferum, Tyr and Trollfest before (not all together and it's been a long while) and would like to see them all again, but can't go to this one due to my health. If things improve for me before then, I'm there. I'll be the chubby redhead with the Mjolnir and Aegishjalmur pendants, probably wearing a super-snazzy shirt from the Fark shop explaining to another aging metal head wench how to brine pork chops while drinking wine. I'm kind of hard to miss that way. ;-p Be sure and say "Hi" and let me know who you are if you spot me. I do answer to "Akvavit", for obvious reasons. tee-hee!


Trollfest - Essenfest

2013-02-17 08:21:32 PM  
Although I will be mocked, I'll say it anyway: Painkiller was *too* hard. I didn't care for it. Nosir, not at all.
Screaming, Defenders? Awesome.
Painkiller? Not so much.

And Halford's "Winter Songs" proved to me that God does indeed exists, and contrary to what I once thought, He doesn't hate me.

Judas Priest is my favorite band of all time with Iron Maiden comming in at a close second.  Met Priest in 2005 in Atlanta and they were really nice guys.  Considering my friend and I snuck backstage, they didn't have to be.

As far as the whole what is and isn't metal argument, I find it usually being perpetuated by those who think their favorite "sub-genre" of metal is the "real deal".  The problem with "heavy metal" music is its diversity and in my opinion that being identified as a "metal band" has to do with look/image as it does sound.  That is what allows a band such as "Poison" be a "metal band" (sub genre glam/hair metal) or Judas Priest be a metal band (Classical Metal), or Slayer be a metal band (sub genre thrash metal).

Really in my opinion , this diversity of sound is why Heavy Metal is the greatest, most awesome type of music there is.  All metal fans should embrace rather than scorn this "diveristy", because United, united, united we stand.  United we never shall fall.  United, united, united we stand.  United we stand one and all.

\m/  \m/ !  Right on target man.  My metal may not be your metal and I might not like your metal but both are metal (man, I sound like Nathan Explosion!).  I like geting turned on to new-to-me music from these threads.

When I lived in the San Diego area, I saw Rob Halford a few times around town but never hassled him.  Walking to my car from a coffee shop there, I passed Rob on the sidewalk... At the time I still had long hair, and I was wearing an Iron Maiden shirt.  We met eyes, gave each other a nod and kept on walking.  I've never felt cooler in my life lol.

Another anecdote:

One year in the early 2000s I was in the parking lot of the sports arena in SD waiting for them to let us in.  I happened to be pretty close to where the tour buses were and witnessed Rob Halford rolling up in a beat looking silver Cutlass Cierra by himself, parking the car, reaching over to the passenger seat to grab his leather jacket, then walk into the sports arena.  The metal god drove himself to the show.

this was the record I heard as a child that made me a lifetime metal head. I finally got to see them on the farewell tour. They still rocked even if K.K. Downing was gone.

http://wildsreprisal.bandcamp.com/album/defiance-enthroned New Wild's Reprisal. Atmospheric black metal from the Northwest focused on ecology. really good stuff. I just bought the new album.

got word this morning my new album will be released via Depressive Illusions. Here is a sampler http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkYG28d7Gu0  (atmospheric black metal)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzRyOSz2fjE  late to the party but if you enjoy early Priest check out In Solitude. Saw them last year and they've got that old school vibe.

Think they've been rec'd here before, but The Shrine are fun live. Old school, punky hesher fuel (see also Valient Thorr).

Catamenia (Finnish blackened melodeath)
Carnal Forge (Swedish melothrash [if that's a thing])
Who else likes Mercyful Fate covers by Testament members' side projects?

Apparently, Downing didn't really enjoy playing anymore and was just going through the motions. His enthusiasm was gone so he left the band. They got a replacement but it's hard to replace 1/2 of a guitar duo that have been playing together for 40 years. When I saw them the new guy messed up a lot of the guitar parts and pretty much missed his half of the intro to Green Manalishi completely

Yeah...that's what they are saying, no doubt. I think there is more to it, though.

12349876: Your Average Witty Fark User: There is metal outside of the bands with Cookie Monster vox.

I guess you guys don't know this.

You obviously didn't listen to the stuff on the 3:23 PM post.  You could argue they're more rock than metal especially the first three, but out of those 5 albums, there's only 1 song with anything cookie monster.


The last two suggestions you note aren't so bad. The Tellus Requiem link was pretty good.

Leader O'Cola: Your Average Witty Fark User: There is metal outside of the bands with Cookie Monster vox.
