Judas Priest Defenders Of The Faith Re-Mastered
Judas PriestDefenders Of The FaithRe-Mastered
Teen age days were spent cranking metal on my record player. Yes. Record
player. My room was covered in heavy metal posters. I can remember buying the
new Defenders of the Faith album and just playing it over and over. The twin
lead attack of k.k and Glenn burning into my air guitar playing mind.
30 years later the entire album has been
re-mastered to perfection!
Judas Priest is one of the most iconic and
widely recognized metal band in the world. Rob Halford's stellar vocal range is
countered by his almost ethereal ability to lower his range and hit you right
in your soul. Priest never disappoints. And this album, now re-mastered and
including some amazing live tracks, is no exception. "Turbo Lover",
"Freewheel burning" are rock solid flag bearers of 80's metal. This
is Priest unrivalled and unleashed.Burning slabs of molten metal tracks like, "Heavy Duty",
"Love Bites", and "The Sentinel" sound reborn on this disc.
hearing these songs was enough priest hits you in the face with not one but two
live cd's. Disc 2 and 3 are live from Long Beach Arena, California on May 5th,
1984.Here we have some incredible live
versions of the classics. "Sinner", "Electric Eye",
"Hell Bent For Leather". You cannot live without this new version
ofpast classics. You can almost smell
the smoke from the rob's motorcycle. It
is all here.Live is where the Priest
beast is unleashed and where you will find the most solid evidence that Judas
Priest will always be "Defenders OfThe Faith"

CRY OF THE WOLF MAGAZINE Interview With FRANKIE BANALI Of QUIET RIOT
QUIET RIOT was not the first band that got me into heavy metal. I was already well entrenched in the power and the glory of bands like Sabbath, Saxon, and Dio. But for an impressionable youth the constant nagging from the "cool" kids at school about how lame metal was became very bothersome. Cliched white sneaker wearing future lawyers were constantly picking on me and my metal head friends. QUIET RIOT one day came on the radio and changed all that. Like an asteroid hitting the dinosaurs they wiped away all the so called un coolness about metal and made it mainstream. Suddenly all the jocks were "banging" their heads to songs like "Metal Health", And "slick Black Cadillac". So years later after the heavy smoke has cleared I got the chance to speak with one of the key architects of QUIET RIOT, Mr. Frankie Banali. They are about to release ROAD RAGE on Frontiers Records and it so…

Sabaton was formed back in 1999 in Falun, Sweden when the members of a band called "Aeon" reformed and rearmed for the upcoming first recording in Moon Music Studio. The founding members of Aeon: Rikard, Pär and Daniel Mullback had joined forces with Oskar and Joakim earlier during the year which had seen a few line-up changes and the guys decided on a fresh start and changed the name of the band to Sabaton. These are the same guys you see on stage today.
As a young proto-metalhead living in the hard streets of Riverside, Rhode Island we would all gather at whoever had the latest vinyl release and rock out for hours. Discussing techniques, listening to lyrics, guitar solos. The best albums offered up energy at its purest form. It transmitted from the vinyl grooves right into our little teenage brains. You could literally feel what the band or artist was trying to convey.
Metallica's latest release, Hardwired to self destruct offers up a modern day version of that same energy and spirit from days gone by. It is a powerful statement from a band that many had written off. One song...Now were all dead...that is the only song you need to listen to. But there are many, many more. This is grade a material from a group of artists who managed to capture their energy and channel it through this disc. This is real, this is power, this is the definition of a classic metal album.
Another great sign of a good, solid album is that you can list…
