Specialists/collaborators reviews

This was the first album released by JUDAS PREIST's frontman Rob Halford under the band name HALFORD. The only band member i know besides Halford is drummer Bobby Jarzombek who has played with SPASTIC INK and ARCH/MATHEOS and is the present FATES WARNING drummer. This is such a great record though with Halford just killing it on vocals with those amazing high pitched screams along with his powerful singing voice. The big thing though is that we get a bunch of really good songs here for him to show-case his voice. This record kicks ass ! The opening title track almost makes my hair standup as he at first sings the word "Resurrection" in a reserved manner, then he screams that word. All hell then breaks out as Halford lets it rip. Killer ! "Made In Hell" is like a history lesson from Halford as he sings about the birth of Heavy Metal with words like "From memories of 68 when the wizard shook the world" of course a reference to BLACK SABBATH and then later "From Jazz and electricity and good old southern blues". The lyrics are really interesting to read throughout this track as Halford relays his personal history with Metal. He sings "I took the scream around the world from London to LA, unleashed in downtown Tokyo blew Godzilla away". It's an uptempo rocker. "Locked And Loaded" is a good heavy riff driven tune. "Night Fall" is nice and heavy as well with a METALLICA vibe. "Silent Screams" might be my favourite on the album. He sings in a laid back way early but then eventually erupts as contrasts continue. Love this one ! "The One You Love To Hate" features Bruce Dickinson on vocals along with Halford which for me is like a dream come true. The Producer Roy Z did Bruce's solo album and brought these two legends together. The last half of the album is a little inconsistant but there's certainly enough here to give the 4 stars. "Twist" is a cool tune. Yeah this is a huge comeback album for Halford.
Because reviewing all Judas Priest and related output is a too ambitious task given my available time, I decided to stick to a couple of favorite picks. 'Resurrection' is definitely one of those, an album that I loved right from the first note I heard from it, and one that I continued to play weekly for more then a year. It's been at least 5 years now and really, this slab of metal hasn't bent one inch.

As a fan of Halford's 90s thrash/groove project Fight, this album pleases me for its energetic attack. The songwriting is more straightforward then Fight though, with greater singalong &ne anthemic potential but without the overtly commercial cheesiness that stained many songs from Priest's 80s output. Toward the end of the album there's a slight dip with a couple of songs that sound a bit formulaic, but overall this one contains some of Halford best catchy writing. Kudos to his band as well, as they really ripped on this album's tour.

This is one of Halford/Priest's finest in my book, and together with the ensuing Halford album ('Crucible') it's the last Halford/Priest release so far that I deem worthy of his/their legacy.
