Topic: Judas Priest
One of the best bands on the planet. The have been flying the flag of heavy metal for 40 years now, and only in recent years have they shown signs of slowing down. Halford's top notch vocals and Tipton's and Downing's duel lead guitar set a standard for heavy metal bands to follow. I have seen them live 4 times, and every time they delivered, the best time even being the most recent show. Their live albums testify to this fact, from their early Unleashed in the East, and Prieast Live! to the more recent A Touch of Evil: Live. Their career has spanned many different forms of metal, and never became stagnant, but always stuck to what they do best. Halford was also the first man in metal to come out of the closet, though I think by the time he outed himself others may have had suspicions. Which to me makes him even more of a bad ass. A rebel to the bone, who has lived by his own rules.
