Judas Priest is a British heavy metal band formed in Birmingham, England in 1969.

In 1989, they were named as defendants in an unsuccessful lawsuit alleging that subliminal messages on their albums had caused the suicide attempts of two young men. The band's membership has seen much turnover, including a revolving cast of drummers in the 1970s, and the temporary departure of singer Rob Halford in the early 1990s.

JUDAS PRIEST Stained Class

Judas Priest's fourth album is where the band really began to define the new sound of heavy metal. Rock journalist, Martin Popoff, states that it was with "Sad Wings of Destiny" Judas Priest "redefined" heavy metal. Over the course of their first three albums, the band moved from recording older material in a heavy blues-based, somewhat progressive rock sound to writing new material with a focus toward developing their own personal approach to heavy metal. With "Stained Class", Judas Priest had successfully shrugged off any cumbersome multi-part compositions and went for straight-ahead heavy rockers. While the older generation of metal bands were struggling to fit in with the punk scene all around, Judas Priest set the tone for the New Wave of British Heavy Metal.

The album sets off with a rapid drum intro by session drummer Les Binks who was asked to be a full-time member of the band but declined. The "Exciter" character mentioned in the lyrics is one of the first of many characters to find life in the band's songs. It’s a speedy rocker with double bass drum, guitars chugging away at high speed, and Halford’s soaring vocals. The song also finds room for two separate guitar solo parts, the second one hinting at Glenn Tipton’s classical training. This song remains a Judas Priest classic

Most of the rest of the album follows in a similar vein with excellent riffs, cool licks, some fine drum work by Binks, and metal track after metal track. Compared to today’s heavy metal sound, the music here now seems primitive; however, the ingredients of heavy metal music are found throughout each track. There’s no pop number, no cheesy ballad, and with titles like “Saints in Hell” and “Beyond the Realms of Death” you know this is serious stuff. A word of mention might also go to the title track which I think is as good as “Exciter” only without the fantasy character aspect.

This album contains the infamous Priest cover, “Better by You, Better Than Me”, which was allegedly responsible for the attempted suicides of two Nevadan youth. Ironically, the song is the only number not written by Priest but is rather a cover of a Spooky Tooth song (which is not very heavy at all). The father of one of the boys claimed that when played backwards, the words “Do it” could be heard, and clearly this was a subliminal message that the youths heard (when they were high on marijuana and beer). In the documentary about the trail, Rob Halford points out that it is not good business for a band to tell its album-buying fans to kill themselves. During the trail, he played the chorus for “Exciter” backwards and said that the words could be deciphered as, “I asked her for a peppermint / I asked her to get me one,” in order to point out how one could hear whatever he chooses in the music played backwards. In the end, it was concluded that the words “Do it” (do what exactly?) were not actually in the recording but could be heard by confusing the mix of background vocals. During the eighties there were a few cases of subliminal messages in music (Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica). The American comic strip “Bloom County” made a succinct statement about the matter when in the strip someone claimed that Billy Joel had Satanic messages on his albums that could be heard when played backwards and the character Milo Bloom listens and says, “I can hear something. He’s saying, ‘No matter which way you slice it, it’s still baloney.’”

The song “Beyond the Realms of Death” is indeed worthy of mention as well. One member referred to it as Priest’s “Stairway to Heaven”. With an acoustic intro and melancholic story about a man who shuts his mind to the world, the song switches into heavy gear and builds to a full-on metal conclusion. We are treated to two guitar solos here, too: one with more focus on the melancholy theme and the second energy-driven and aggressive.

This new formula would be repeated on their next album “Hell Bent for Leather” (a.k.a. “Killing Machine”) and developed further on their very successful “British Steel”. “Stained Class” is a stand-out classic album in the annals of heavy metal history in my books. It was a great pleasure to listen to it yet again this morning in preparation for my review.

Yes this album sees JUDAS PRIEST very much in their formative years experimenting with different ideas and staying close to their influences and although this is far from the peak of their career, I have always rather enjoyed listening to this album for its quirkiness and reminder that while metal was still in its inchoate stages of development, there were many strange ideas that would be abandoned in favor of faster and heavier riffing which would create the first true heavy metal music.

ROCKA ROLLA which is the debut album by JUDAS PRIEST was released all the way back in 1974 and has a clear bluesy hard rock a la Led Zeppelin influence throughout most of its tracks but there are many surprises as well which is probably why this album doesn't get as much love as the others following. One strangeness occurring here that I have always adored is the psychedelic freakout frenzy that makes up the heavy psych / proto-metal tracks “Winter,” “Deep Freeze” and “Winter Retreat.”

I put this album in the same category as I do the debut albums by Rush and the Scorpions, that being an anomaly in their respective careers that would never be repeated yet are performed extraordinarily well. This album was actually recorded live in the studio and although the production is not the best in the world, its the rawness and melodic deliveries that keep me re-visiting this album from time to time. A mishmash of ideas to be sure but always pleasantly laid out with Rob Halford already hitting some of those high notes.

If you're only into headbanging this is surely not going to thrill you in the least but if you can embrace eclectic musical ideas that have a grain of the JUDAS PRIEST that would be developed in the next couple of years for their more popular “Sad Wings Of Destiny” then you might actually like this quirky album that shows a side of JUDAS PRIEST that really wouldn't be explored again until they dabbled in the progressive side of rock on their much later release “Nostradamus.” Maybe it's the horrible bottle cap cover that scared everyone off. By all means get the remastered version with the cool missile monster on the cover!

It is a very rare occurence that a band will release an album long after their supposed prime and hit one out of the park. This is my favourite JUDAS PRIEST record. When I think of this band I think of Halford's incredible vocals and the twin lead guitars of Tipton and Downing, but for the first time in my opinion they have a drummer who matches the skills of the three I just mentioned. Scott Travis the former drummer for RACER X is fantastic and the band is the complete package here. Intense and powerful are two words that keep coming to mind while listening to this beast. I still remember seeing the video for the title track back in the early nineties and being blown away by the sheer intensity. In my opinion this was the best album released in 1990, and obviously a must for Metal fans out there.

Many PRIEST fans rate this one and the previous album "Screaming For Vengence" fairly evenly. They are in the same style, released two years apart. I prefer this one over "Screaming..." despite it not having that big hit("You've Got Another Thing Coming"). By the way I have this on a two on one compilation with "Sad Wings Of Destiny" that was released in 1999. "Freewheel Burning" is the perfect track to open with as it's uptempo and on fire throughout. "Jawbreaker" doesn't ease up on the gas pedal much as they rip through another great track. They slow it down with "Rock Hard Ride Free" which I really like. It sounds like the mid-eighties when I listen to this. "The Sentinel" might be the best track on here, in fact the first half of this record is incredible. "Love Bites" is catchy with an excellent instrumental section. "Eat Me Alive" is intense. "Some Heads Are Going To Roll" is a favourite of mine, again it just sounds like the mid-eighties when listening to this track. Great song ! "Night Comes Down" is laid back and a refreshing change at this point. The last two songs are my least favs but both are short. So for me this album is a step up from "Screaming For Vengence" and worthy of 4 stars.

I tend to sympathize with the underdog and I do so with this album as well. I actually quite like it. Though not as good as many of Priest's albums, I prefer its seventies proto-metal/progressive hard rock sound to many of their later albums.

I first acquired "Rocka Rolla" in the guise of a double cassette called "Hero Hero", which included the entire album plus most of "Sad Wings of Destiny" and an early version of the cover song "Diamonds and Rust". At the time I favoured heavier tracks such as "Tyrant" and "Victim of Changes" from "Sad Wings" but I still enjoyed certain parts of the "Rocka Rolla" songs. Eventually I bought both albums in full on a two-disk compilation, but when I read reviews about remastering quality I went and bought both disks again, this time individually. Shortly after, a Japanese super high quality pressing was released at a much higher price. I was tempted but held back. Not yet.

The album intrigues me because it is similar to Metallica's "Kill 'em All" in that a new band member had taken over for a founding member (Halford taking over for Atkins and Hammett taking over for Mustaine) and so a lot of the former members' contributions were used both on the debuts and on the sophomores. In particular, I found it interesting when I read Atkins say that in the early seventies he characterized Priest's music as progressive heavy blues-based rock. I would go as far as to say that this album is not only a proto-metal album but a proto-progressive metal album. Consider the three-part "Winter" mini-suite, the extended "Run of the Mill" and the two-part "Dying to Meet You". Not to mention the 14-minute "Caviar and Meths" which was, according to what I have read, shortened to two minutes because the management of Tony Iommi's company who signed the band didn't think the full instrumental (which they had been playing live for a few years already) wasn't good for the album.

The shorter tracks show Priest still emerging from a hard rock type outfit that hadn't immersed their sound in full on metal as they began to do on the next album. "One for the Road," "Rocka Rolla," and "Cheater" are still good taken in the context of where Priest were coming from and not where they were ultimately headed.

The album receives much flack partly for its uncharacteristic style in the Priest catalogue and also for its poor recording quality, something that remastering can only go so far to fix. Rob Halford himself said that "it sounds like it was recorded in a garbage can". The band do not have fond memories of their days with Gull Records where they felt their recordings were not given the love and care they deserved. It was the Gull reps who actually suggested getting a fifth member (prior to Tipton's hiring) and one rep said they should get a pianist or saxophonist! Interestingly, they almost got the pianist as Tipton's musical background included training on classical piano - listen for the piano and synthesizer on the band's first two albums for Tipton's skill with the keys.

So, to reiterate, I actually quite like this album even though the recording quality needed a lot of help. I understand that many fans of Judas Priest will not like this album because it is so different. But in a way, like the first Rush album captures what the band had been doing up until Neil Peart's joining, "Rocka Rolla" gives us an insight to how Judas Priest sounded during the early seventies when they were struggling to get that elusive record deal.

Opening with the classic double punch of `The Hellion/Electric Eye,’ you know that this concert is going to be good.

The band do their best to mix a diverse career spanning set list with playing all their biggest hits and do a pretty successful job, managing to cover a full five songs from their then new `Angel of Retribution,’ album with their big hits like `Breaking the Law,’ `Living After Midnight,’ and `You’ve Got Another Thing Coming,’ while still playing at least one song from their less famous `Point of Entry,’ `Turbo,’ and `Ram It Down,’ albums.

Musically, the band are on fire, with impressive guitar soloing, energetic on stage performances and drummer Scott Travis playing songs harder, with confidence and authority that makes them sound that much heavier and tighter. The band are playing on a fairly large stage with elaborate set pieces, risers and of course, the famous motorcycle.

Some fans have made a lot of complaints about Rob Halford’s performance here, but with the sole exception of the vocals on the track `Painkiller,’ (which, as it happens has impossibly difficult vocals to begin with) I think these complaints are pretty off the mark.

If you need proof that Rob can still reach those high notes see the `You’re Possessing Me,’ scream in `A Touch of Evil’ or indeed the entire performance of the fast and high pitched `Riding on the Wind.’

Furthermore Rob’s whole on-stage attitude is a winner, seeming genuinely pleased each and every time the crowd gets a sing along moment correct, adding little Robotic Walk gestures to `Metal Gods,’ and generally looking like he’s giving it his all, to the point where he is sweating and red in the face, not because he can’t hack it, but rather because he’s giving it his very all.

Even if you do for some reason take exception with Rob, there is simply no denying the performances of Glen, Scott, Ian and Mr. Downing who all blast away like a well oiled machine, but with the energy of a much younger band.

In terms of camera, editing, sound and mix there really isn’t anything to complain about, everything is handled well and the whole package is as slick and professional as you would hope for from a band of their size.

Overall this is a great looking and great sounding DVD from Judas Priest and that alone should have you interested, add to that an interesting set list and dismiss the complaints about Rob and you should find `Rising In The East,’ a really worthy addition to your collection.
