Specialists/collaborators reviews

After the disappointment that was Point of Entry Judas Priest returned to more familiar and altogether more metallic territory for their eighth album Screaming for Vengeance in 1982. And for me given that Point of Entry has always given the impression that it's anything but a really worthwhile Judas Priest release that's definitely a good thing.

Many fans of the band seem to uphold Screaming for Vengeance as one of Judas Priest's very best albums. That's not a sentiment that I find I agree with but this one is most certainly a very redeeming effort to follow Point of Entry. I would also say it's one of the best album's the band released during the 1980's (though my personal 80's Judas Priest preference is to the following Defenders of the Faith) but overall I can't associate Screaming for Vengeance as a masterpiece. Sure it has its share of the Judas Priest classic tracks like the opening duo The Hellion/Electric Eye as well as fantastic title track but I do not think that level of quality is matched by the whole album. A very good return to form for the band, but nothing more than that.

I have to agree with Colt's rating here. Now I must admit I didn't own this one back in the day which may have an affect on my feelings towards it. To me it comes off as a commercial sounding record just not nearly as good as "British Steel". Things start off really good with "The Hellion / Electric Eye" and "Riding On The Wind" but for me it goes downhill from there quickly. I dont know why but "Bloodstone" and "(Take These) Chains" both annoy me. "Pain And Pleasure" is a little better then we get the uptempo title track which is good. "You've Got Another Thing Coming" is really good but I am tired of it. The final two tracks are okay. I just don't feel it with this one, and I know i'm in the minority as most rate this highly.

Fans reacted against Point of Entry, and Judas Priest got the message loud and clear; Screaming for Vengeance saw the band tighten up their act, play heavier riffs, and take a tip or two from the NWOBHM (you can't tell me the Hellion/Electric Eye opening two-fer isn't at least partially inspired by Ides of March/Wrathchild from Iron Maiden's killers). The result is the freshest-sounding Priest album since Killing Machine, and whilst it bogs down towards the end - Devil's Child and Fever get kind of repetitive and outlast their welcome - it's still a cracking release which reinvigorated the band's sound at a time when it was beginning to flag.

Judas Priest’s eight studio album Screaming For Vengeance took the band to new heights of popularity when it was released back in 1982 and has since come to be regarded as an all time classic record for Heavy Metal.

Screaming For Vengeance largely lives up to its reputation, the album is very strong and the performances from the band are exceptional. Guitar solos are on top form, Rob’s vocals are varied and dynamic and the drumming is rock solid.

The album features many of Priest’s well-known tracks, such as ‘The Hellion/Electric Eye,’ ‘Riding On The Wind,’ and ‘You’ve Got Another Thing Comin.’

Part of the success of this album can be attributed to the variety herein, the material ranges from fast and exciting metal music like the title track, to slower more emotional tracks like ‘(Take These) Chains,’ and mixes songs with a more classic rock sound with those with a more 80s metal feel. No two songs sound alike, nothing feels like filler and this is a large contributing factor as to why Screaming For Vengeance is such a good record.

If you like Judas Priest, Screaming For Vengeance is obviously something you’ll want to pick up and if you are a prospective fan then it would make a fine place to start.

British Steel was the album that introduced me to Judas Priest and songs like Breaking the Law and Living After Midnight made me a fan. However, it was the next trio of albums that has made a lifelong fan of the Priest. This was their period of most commerical success which coincided with the popularity of MTV. All songs on this album are awesome, but the highlights are Screaming for Vengeance and of course the megahit You've Got Another Thing Coming. This was the first Judas Priest album that was a current release while I was aware of the band and a fan of the band. I can remember that it seemed that every one I knew had this on cassette tape and everyone knew the words and were "Screaming for Vengeance". A great album as a teenager and still an album that I enjoy hearing. This one is my 2nd 5 star album from Judas Priest following British Steel.

Time Signature
Metal and pleasure...

Genre: heavy metal

After the disappointing and, honestly, boring, "Point of Entry", Judas Priest return with a vengeance. "Screaming for Vengeance" is a legendary heavy metal album, and when you listen to it and compare it to the metal music released by a host of artists thereafter (all the way up until to day), you can really hear how influential it is.

The iconic opening riff of "Electric Eye" is melodic and aggressive at the same time and has virtually been "ripped off" by more metalcore bands than I can count. "Riding on the Wind" is a straight heavy metal track as is "Screaming for Vengeance", "You've Got Another Thing Coming" and "Devil's Child", while "Bloodstone" is more of a bouncy affair with some nice riffage and a simple but haunting chorus. "(Take these) Chains" is a more commercial affair whose legacy resonates in the world of glam metal and pop metal even today - and I really like the chorus, I must admit. "Fever" is a quasi-ballad with lots of powerful sections nonetheless, and some nice lead guitar work.

While a lot better than "Point of Entry", "Screaming for Vengeance" is not as good as "Killing Machine" or "British Steel", but it is still a really good heavy metal album which I think most fans of traditional metal will appreciate.

The avenging heavy metal legend, Judas Priest, continues to strike with their eight album, "Screaming For Vengeance". Recorded in the hedonic land of Ibiza, Halford and the gang achieved a big success, and even bigger than their previous "British Steel" release. With a clever combination of Judas Priest heavy metal signature and hard rock style to adapt the dawn of 80s, this album was cited as one of the most influential albums ever made and you can hear Rob Halford's strong voice at his prime state.

"Electric Eye" came on first, is a well-known track from the album and concert favorite, a blazing opener and Halford's screaming galore steals the show. Next track, "Riding On The Wind", is the best one in my opinion. They fired an incinerating riffs before Halford jumped in nicely unleashing his hellish howl. "Bloodstone" is a cool Van Halen-ized hard rock track and "(Take These) Chains" is also pretty good midtempo commercial track. The title track is an astonishing uptempo module with Downing/Tipton's wonderful trade-off and harmonic solos. "You've Got Another Thing Comin'" is another big hit of the band, loaded with AC/DC riffage, just like the closer, "Devil's Child". I'd say the whole album is totally fun except "Pain And Pleasure" is the unlistenable filler and simply horrible.

"Screaming For Vengeance" is definitely an essential release in my book, a heavy metal defining record for all ages, a timeless classic that's insanely awesome. Crank it up loud in your living room, and when Halford started to yell his heart out, you know you'll going to have some very good time.

"Screaming for Vengeance"'s importance is still noticeable in today's heavy metal music.

When I was thirteen, this was one of my favorite albums, and Judas Priest was one one of my favorite bands. And what better music for a thirteen year old teen ager than Screaming For Vengeance? Very melodic, and at the same time heavy. A bit like Iron Maiden. Now I still love it, even though some times it sounds a bit naive and banal. That's probably why I see that this album isn't really loved here in MMA.

More than Traditional Heavy Metal, sometimes it sounds kind of Glammy, even though Rob Halford, my favorite singer in metal, gives a very heavy and strong touch. I never noticed how great the guitars sound too, because of the unbelievable solos in all the songs. KK Downing is now one of my favorite guitarists.

"The Hellion" is the powerful and brief intro, instrumental, and despite it's length it's a great intro, epic and perfect to start a heavy album. "Electric Eye" is for sure one of my favorite songs off this album. Very catchy and melodious, but at the same time pretty violent, and also pretty fast. Great chorus, great moments, great solo, amazing in it's total. "Riding On The Wind" is a hymn to heavy metal, an excellent song that I always loved. A hymn to freedom, I can imagine riding a motorbike with this song in the background and feel like the king of the world! My favorite thing in this song is probably the solo by Downing, one of his best in my opinion. "Bloodstone" use to be one of my fav, and it still is. People consider it repetitive, I love it, especially the melody. It was one of my first JP songs that I listened to. "(Take These) Chains" is an excellent song, even though not many think of it positively. Maybe not their heaviest song, actually in some moments, in a particular way the chorus, it sounds like glam metal. Oh well. "Pain And PLeasure" is maybe the song I like the least, it's very different from the rest of JP's songs, not so heavy, sounds, like the previous song, a little glammy. the title track is a powerful song, with high pitched vocals and very fast rhythms and guitars. Not bad at all, with a nice melody and chorus. "You've Got another Thing Comin" is the band's most famous songs, or at least one of their most famous ones. This is due for sure for the very catchy melody, and it sounds indeed like an 80's song. I recommend this song to whoever wants to try this band, it's a perfect way to start to listen to JP. "Fever" is a very underrated song. A beautiful 80's like ballad, in the beginning, it explodes then into a mind blowing song, very melodic and tuneful. Possibly my favorite JP ballad. "Devil's Child" is a song that never really appealed to me. It actually is annoying at times, but I guess you need to be in the right mood to appreciate it.

In conclusion, I must warn all metal heads not to underrate this album, for it's importance is still noticeable in today's heavy metal music.

After the complete flop that was "Point Of Entry", Judas Priest finally got their act together and released another great record!

The fast-paced album opener have been missing ever since "Stained Class" and it's a tradition that I missed dearly. The two part opener, "The Hellion"/"Electric Eye", really doesn't disappoint in that regard and delivers the goods. "Riding On The Wind" continues in the same vein while "Bloodstone" is another classic rocker that has that signature Judas Priest sound.

"(Take These) Chains" is where the album shifts gear into a more '80s sounding direction which might seem a bit out of place with the rest of the material. Surprisingly enough, this particular shift has never really bothered me. Having said that, "Pain And Pleasure" is where I draw the line since this track just never takes off.

The album's title track and "You've Got Another Thing Comin'" are well known classics that don't need any introduction, even though I've never been a huge fan of the latter. While "Fever" and "Devil's Child" complete the record with two of its best album tracks!

Some critics have given "Screaming For Vengeance" the unflattering label of being "British Steel part II". I wholeheartedly object to such a claim since this record is a huge improvement over the overrated 1980 classic. Just take it at face value and you're guaranteed a good time!

We did have another thing comin’

After three disappointing albums in a row, Judas Priest started their ascent towards a returned to form with this album. The Pop Metal ambitions that started with Living After Midnight and continued on the Point Of Entry album were basically dropped and the band once again focused on making Heavy Metal. Once again the great twin-guitars of Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing were allowed to shine and the whole band seemed to have regained their senses and injected a newfound energy into the music that was so clearly lacking on previous albums. They would never again reach the heights of their strongest period in the 70’s, but this album started a kind of second coming that continued with the next album, Defenders Of The Faith.

The new found inspiration is immediately apparent on the first song, the very good The Hellion/Electric Eye. The dystopian lyrics are great and highly relevant today when governments are trying to control the free exchange of information on the internet. Riding On The Wind is another strong song with inspired vocals by Rob Halford. Bloodstone, (Take These) Chains and Pain And Pleasure are weaker songs, but still good. One problem is that they are rather similar to each other. Then comes the great title track in which Halford really is screaming for vengeance and Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing do their trademark duels.

The rest of the album is a bit weaker again, with You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’ being rather tedious, in my opinion. Fever slows things down a bit and features some very good passages, but the main melody feels rather unimaginative somehow. The album ends with Devil’s Child which is something of an anticlimax as it is a rather Delivering The Goods-like Rock ‘N’ Roll number.

This album is clearly worth having, but it is still far away from the band’s glory days. Make sure you get the re-mastered version as then you get a good bonus track called Prisoner Of Your Eyes. This is a ballad and is just the kind of song that would have brought a much needed diversity to the main album. But I guess the band didn’t have the courage to include this song at the time?
