Album number 4 from Judas Priest and the progressive rock tinges are only very slightly there now. Now it is mostly White Heat, Red Hot thrash metal that singes your eyebrows off if you stand too close to your speakers. Highlights include Exciter, Invader, and Beyond the Realms of Death, but again I find there to really be no weak songs from the metal masters. I must say once again that Rob Halford produces my favorite screaming vocals in the metal world, and very few bands can boast of having the twin lead guitar bombast of K.K. Downing and Glenn Tipton. If you've not figured out from reading my previous reviews of Judas Priest's albums, I am a huge fan of the band, so my reviews should be taken with that grain of salt. Judas Priest were my favorite band for quite some time before being replaced by the band in my MMA nickname, but they are still one of my all-time favorite bands. I have rated this album with 3 and 1/2 stars, as I feel that it is a good to excellent album that will appeal to many metal fans, and definitely should appeal to Judas Priest fans. This being said, their best work is still yet to come.
