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.

heavymetal: 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.

John Redcorn: 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.


this is a tapetrading thread except with youtube links. the original posted song is incidental.

the diversity of styles in the heavisphere allows for thousands of bands no one has heard of to be introduced by an intrepid explorer.

there will never be lockstep agreement on subjective tastes.

12349876: Here comes the "this isn't metal even though metal was the name it was given when it was new" comments.


If you don't think Judas Priest is metal, you got another thing coming.

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
