The legacy of the father of fetish rock has finally been reviewed! With the cream of the music

industry on hand with their insights, we present the music, the sex, the leather and the scandals!

"Living After Midnight" and "Breaking the Law" are just two of the classic heavy metal songs that

British rockers Judas Priest are best known for. This entry in the Music in Review series takes a look

at the band's remarkable achievements and some of the controversy they have generated over the


Judas Priest was one of the most influential heavy metal bands of the '70s, spearheading the New

Wave of British Heavy Metal late in the decade. Decked out in leather and chains, the band fused the

gothic doom of Black Sabbath with the riffs and speed of Led Zeppelin, as well as adding a vicious

two-lead guitar attack; in doing so, they set the pace for much popular heavy metal from 1975 until

1985, as well as laying the groundwork for the speed and death metal of the '80s. Formed in

Birmingham, England, in 1970, the group's core members were guitarist K.K. Downing and bassist

Ian Hill. Joined by Alan Atkins and drummer John Ellis, the band played their first concert in 1971.

Atkins' previous band was called Judas Priest, yet the members decided it was the best name for the

new group. The band played numerous shows throughout 1971; during the year, Ellis was replaced

by Alan Moore; by the end of the year, Chris Campbell replaced Moore. After a solid year of touring

the U.K., Atkins and Campbell left the band in 1973 and were replaced by vocalist Rob Halford and

drummer John Hinch. They continued touring, including a visit to Germany and the Netherlands in

1974; by the time the tour was completed, they had secured a record contract with Gull, an

independent U.K. label. Before recording their debut album, Rocka Rolla, Judas Priest added

guitarist Glenn Tipton.

They released the record in September of 1974 to almost no attention. The following year, they gave

a well-received performance at the Reading Festival and Hinch departed the band; he was replaced

by Alan Moore. Later that year, the group released Sad Wings of Destiny, which earned some

positive reviews. However, the lack of sales was putting the band in a dire financial situation, which

was remedied by an international contract with CBS Records. Sin After Sin (1977) was the first

album released under that contract; it was recorded with Simon Phillips, who replaced Moore. The

record received positive reviews and the band departed for their first American tour, with Les Binks

on drums. When they returned to England, Judas Priest recorded 1978's Stained Class, the record

that established them as an international force in metal. Along with 1979's Hell Bent for Leather

(Killing Machine in the U.K.), Stained Class began the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement.

A significant number of bands adopted Priest's leather-clad image and hard, driving sound, making

their music harder, faster, and louder. After releasing Hell Bent for Leather, the band recorded the live

album Unleashed in the East (1979) in Japan; it became their first platinum album in America. Les

Binks left the band in 1979; he was replaced by former Trapeze drummer Dave Holland. Their next

album, 1980's British Steel, entered the British charts at number three, launched the hit singles

"Breaking the Law" and "Living After Midnight," and was their second American platinum record;

Point of Entry, released the following year, was nearly as successful.

At the beginning of the '80s, Judas Priest was a top concert attraction around the world, in addition

to being a best-selling recording artist. Featuring the hit single "You've Got Another Thing Comin',"

Screaming for Vengeance (1982) marked the height of their popularity, peaking at number 17 in

America and selling over a million copies. Two years later, Defenders of the Faith nearly matched its

predecessor's performance, yet metal tastes were beginning to change, as Metallica and other

speed/thrash metal groups started to grow in popularity. That shift was evident on 1986's Turbo,

where Judas Priest seemed out of touch with current trends; nevertheless, the record sold over a

million copies in America on the basis of name recognition alone. However, 1987's Priest...Live! was

their first album since Stained Class not to go gold. Ram It Down (1988) was a return to raw metal

and returned the group to gold status. Dave Holland left after this record and was replaced by Scott

Travis for 1990's Painkiller. Like Ram It Down, Painkiller didn't make an impact outside the band's

diehard fans, yet the group was still a popular concert act. In the early '90s, Rob Halford began his

own thrash band, Fight, and soon left Judas Priest. In 1996, following a solo album by Glenn Tipton,

the band rebounded with a new young singer, Tim "Ripper" Owens, (formerly a member of a Priest

tribute band and of Winter's Bane). They spent the next year recording Jugulator amongst much

self-perpetuated hype concerning Priest's return to their roots. The album debuted at number 82 on

the Billboard album charts upon its release in late 1997. Halford had by then disbanded Fight

following a decrease in interest and signed with Trent Reznor's Nothing label with a new project,

Two. In the meantime, the remaining members of Judas Priest forged on with '98 Live Meltdown, a

live set recorded during their inaugural tour with Ripper on the mic. Around the same time, a movie

was readying production that was to be based on Ripper's rags-to-riches story of how he got to

front his all-time favorite band. Although Priest was originally supposed to be involved with the film,

they ultimately pulled out, but production went on anyway without the band's blessing (the movie,

Rock Star, was eventually released in the summer of 2001, starring Mark Wahlberg in the lead role).

Rob Halford in the meantime disbanded Two after just a single album, 1997's Voyeurs, and returned

back to his metal roots with a quintet titled simply...Halford. The group issued their debut in 2000,

Resurrection, following it with a worldwide tour that saw the new group open up Iron Maiden's

Brave New World U.S. tour, and issuing a live set one year later (which included a healthy helping of

Priest classics) - Live Insurrection. In 2001 the Ripper-led Priest issued a new album, Demolition,

and Priest's entire back catalog for Columbia was reissued with remastered sound and bonus tracks.

In 2003 the band-including Halford-collaborated on the liner notes and song selections for their

mammoth career-encompassing box Metalogy, a collaboration that brought Halford back into the

fold. Owens split from the group amicably in 2003, allowing the newly reunited heavy metal legends

to plan their global live concert tour in 2004, with their sixteenth studio album, Angel of Retribution,

to be released the following year. In 2008 the band released Nostradamus, a sprawling, two disc

conceptual piece that charted the life and times of the famous French seer. On December 7, 2010,

the band broke the news that their current tour, The Epitaph World Tour, would be their last.
