PRIEST - Angel Of Retribution
Some classic Hard Rock and Metal vocal configurations were simply meant
to be. Vince Neil returned to Mötley
Bruce Dickinson to Iron
and the better for it. After years of waiting, rabid Judas
fans were screaming for this moment - where vocalist supremo Rob Halford
again coupled with the guitar fury of K.K. Downing and Glenn Tipton to
show the youngsters what real Heavy Metal should sound like. With brilliantly
executed old-school flavours in tact (as well as unavoidably cheesy lyrical
moments), it sounds as if the paths of these Metal Gods were never parted.
Some would balk at the comparison, but Priest
without Rob is like The
without Mick. While the old boys have the history and legendary status,
I'd like to see Mr. Jagger hit the intense high notes and display the
vocal control of Mr. Halford, who is also coming on in years I must add.
fans will not be disappointed, while new kids unaware of classic albums
like Sad Wings Of Destiny, British Steel, Screaming For Vengeance,
Painkiller and Ram It Down will hopefully get hooked onto
this new release and seek out the band's catalogue and get blown away.
