This is great as a long time fan of Priest because up till now the most popular live album was from the Turbo tour which was pretty commercial for them. The live tracks on this re-issue give a much heavier look at a live Judas Priest show from when they were at their prime.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLS2RKB2Nyo”] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” show_in_lightbox=”off” url_new_window=”off” animation=”left” sticky=”off” align=”left” force_fullwidth=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” src=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/skullnbones/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Armored-Saint-Win-Hands-Down.jpg”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]<div style=”font-size: 200%; float: left; margin:18px 10px;”>5.</div><br /> <h3>Armored Saint – Win Hands Down</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]I just really like John Bush’s vocals. I liked him when he was in Anthrax, and it’s great to hear him back here. He’s kicking ass as always.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MA-C8_zgLXo”] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” show_in_lightbox=”off” url_new_window=”off” animation=”left” sticky=”off” align=”left” force_fullwidth=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” src=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/skullnbones/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Clutch-Psychic-Warfare.jpg”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]<div style=”font-size: 200%; float: left; margin:18px 10px;”>4.</div><br /> <h3>Clutch – Psychic Warfare</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]Clutch might not be metal, but their sound is hard edged enough that it fits in well with metal. I love their heavy blues grooves and they write some really fun songs.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8cmbmwFAl8″] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” show_in_lightbox=”off” url_new_window=”off” animation=”left” sticky=”off” align=”left” force_fullwidth=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” src=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/skullnbones/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Iron-Maiden-Book-of-Souls.jpg”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]<div style=”font-size: 200%; float: left; margin:18px 10px;”>3.</div><br /> <h3>Iron Maiden – Book of Souls</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]It’s immediately a classic. Sounds like older Iron Maiden, but it sounds new. It’s more aggressive than their last album, and I can’t wait to see them on tour.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-F7A24f6gNc”] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” show_in_lightbox=”off” url_new_window=”off” animation=”left” sticky=”off” align=”left” force_fullwidth=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” src=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/skullnbones/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Lamb-of-God-VII-Sturm-Und-Drang.jpg”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]<div style=”font-size: 200%; float: left; margin:18px 10px;”>2.</div><br /> <h3>Lamb of God – VII Sturm Und Drang</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]No one else really needs to play metal anymore. Lamb of God has basically perfected it. The album has all the brutality, and intensity you would expect from Lamb of God. It’s broken up nicely with the guest vocalists, and I even like the clean singing.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dulxbKkj9Wg”] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” show_in_lightbox=”off” url_new_window=”off” animation=”left” sticky=”off” align=”left” force_fullwidth=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” src=”http://s3.amazonaws.com/skullnbones/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Prong-Songs-From-The-Black-Hole.jpg”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]<div style=”font-size: 200%; float: left; margin:18px 10px;”>1.</div><br /> <h3>Prong – Songs From The Black Hole</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]This is Prong’s all-cover tribute to the bands that influenced them. They make every song sound like a Prong song, yet they maintain the integrity of the original. That’s exactly what a cover should do, and they do it for a whole album. So not only was it a great Prong album, it made me go check out a bunch of bands I didn’t know a whole lot about.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cleLuzgYw98″] [/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
