Fight
CD Reviews
A Small Deadly Space
Review by Gary Hill
Much of this album is pure metal, however there are sections that show much progressive influences. Rob Halford`s vocal work here is based in the lower end of the register, rather than showing the high end pyrotechnics that he exhibited in Judas Priest.

K5 - The War of Words - Demos
Review by Gary Hill
The majority of the material here comes from the working tapes that Fight recorded before doing their War of Words album. “So, what does ‘K5’ mean?” you ask?

Fight - War of Words - The Film
Review by Gary Hill
For my money you just can’t go wrong with Rob Halford. He’s the greatest vocalist in the history of metal in my opinion – possibly in all of rock. So, I’ve pretty much followed everything he’s done.

Halford - Crucible
Review by Mike Korn
The name of this record should really be "Redemption". "Resurrection" was a very apt title for the debut Halford CD.

Judas Priest - Firepower

In this day and age when it seems like honest rock and heavy metal is withering before our eyes, every new release from a “legacy” band such as Judas Priest becomes more important.

Judas Priest - Hell Bent For Leather - Expanded Edition
Review by Gary Hill
Hell Bent For Leather was the first Judas Priest I ever heard, and for that reason has always been one of my favorites. While not all the songs are spectacular, it definitely has some strong material.

Judas Priest - Live at Ozzfest, 2004, Alpine Valley, WI
Review by Gary Hill
There was a day when Judas Priest were in my top two or three bands, and I had seen them more often than any other band. I originally saw them on the "British Steel" tour, and the last show with Rob Halford was the "Operation Rock and Roll" tour.

Halford - Live In Chicago, 2003
Review by Mike Korn
For this reviewer, this was the tour of the year...a chance to see the Metal God himself, Rob Halford, accompanied by a sextet of topnotch metal bands of various stripe. In short, the tour is like a stripped-down Milwaukee Metalfest of all beef, no filler.

Judas Priest - Live in Chicago, IL, June, 2005
Review by Gary Hill
Judas Priest stormed into the greater Chicago area on their Angel of Retribution tour, and although the evening air was on the hot side of warm, their performance was even hotter. This reviewer has seen Priest many, many times, but this may have been the best performance I've ever seen from them.

Judas Priest - Live in Dallas, Texas, May 2019
Review by Greg Olma

Judas Priest rolled into Dallas on the third leg of their Firepower tour and they brought with them a number of surprises.  Sure, the stage set looked similar to the previous dates, but the set list was much different.

Hell bent for leather again, the metal god returns. After playing a supporting role on the recent Iron Maiden tour, Halford is back out, this time headlining.

Judas Priest - Live in Rockford, IL, September 28, 2005
Review by Mike Korn
Let me first express my disappointment in the size of the crowd. I am enough of a realist to know that a classic metal band like Judas Priest is not going to sell out the Metro Centre on a weeknight.

Halford - Live Insurrection
Review by Gary Hill
This double live disc really shows why Judas Priest made a big mistake in not taking Rob Halford back. The album rocks out much better, and captures the Priest magic much closer than his old band's most recent live album.

Judas Priest - Live Vengeance ’82 DVD
Review by Gary Hill

As the title suggests, this DVD captures Judas Priest live in 1982 on their Screaming for Vengeance tour.

Halford - Made Of Metal
Review by Mike Korn

With the sad demise of Ronnie James Dio earlier in the year, nobody can argue that Rob Halford is truly the Metal God.

Halford - Metal God Essentials Volume I
Review by Gary Hill
This compilation of remasters from the real metal god, Rob Halford is a top-notch set. Not only do you get a CD that’s full of some of his best material from his three previous solo albums, but that’s just the beginning.

Judas Priest - Metalogy Box Set
Review by Gary Hill
Judas Priest fanatics rejoice, the band have released the ultimate collection chronicling their entire career in this box set. The four CD set is a lasting tribute to this incredible band, and quite a well-done package at that.

Various Artists - Nativity In Black
Review by Rick Damigella
  It is safe to say that while there were forces all happening simultaneously in music in the late 60’s, which would later be regarded as the elements from which heavy metal evolved. One band crawled forth, nay, stomped out of, the primordial ooze of the late sixties music scene to single handedly create an entirely new sound heretofore unheard coming from the speakers of stereos of the youth of the world.

Judas Priest - Nostradamus
Review by Gary Hill
I have been a Judas Priest fan for a very long time. I first heard the Hell Bent For Leather (Killing Machine for those of you not in the US) album when it was the latest release and was hooked.

Halford - Resurrection
Review by Gary Hill
The god of metal has returned! Rob Halford has come back to the metal fold, and if this first release is any indication, it should be a powerful and successful return.

Judas Priest - Rising in the East DVD
Review by Gary Hill
Well, what a time it is to be a Judas Priest fan. Over the course of the last couple years we got the news that Rob Halford (the metal god) had returned to the fold, then we got the reunion showing at Ozzfest followed by the awesome Angel of Retribution album and two legs of a tour (at least here in the US) and now this DVD!

Judas Priest - Rocka Rolla
Review by Gary Hill
I know there are a lot of people who just plain disregard this Judas Priest album because the sound is so different. That’s a mistake.

Judas Priest - Sad Wings of Destiny
Review by Gary Hill
Few would call Judas Priest a progressive metal band. Certainly the bulk of their career has been devoted to pure metal.

Judas Priest - Sin After Sin Expanded Edition

Judas Priest - Stained Class
Review by Gary Hill
Stained Class, the album Judas Priest released right before Hell Bent For Leather, has always been a favorite of mine. The disc includes some very strong material that fits nicely in between the Sad Wings of Destiny era and the later period of the band.

Judas Priest - The Essential Judas Priest
Review by Gary Hill
Riding high on a resurgence from the reuniting of the band with vocalist Rob Halford, Judas Priest are releasing a 2 CD collection called "The Essential Judas Priest." The set has two songs from their latest studio release, Angel of Retribution, which make a nice addition in the form of bookends.

Judas Priest - Turbo 30
Review by G. W. Hill
This brand new 30th Anniversary edition of Turbo is classy stuff. Sure, Turbo is arguably the weakest album in Priest's catalog, but this set has the major bonus of a double CD live set.

Judas Priest - Unleashed in the East
Review by Gary Hill
Judas Priest really hit the mass market with the album British Steel, but before then they were building a loyal, almost cult, following with their truly unique sound. This album was a live album that was the culmination of that era of the band, and directly preceded British Steel.
