iTunes Review

Redeemer of Souls is Judas Priest’s 17th studio album and their first without original guitarist K.K. Downing. New guitarist Richie Faulkner does an admirable job alongside Priest’s main guitarist, Glenn Tipton, in recreating the twin-guitar attack that Priest practically invented. Unlike the heavy concepts and synths of 2008’s Nostradamus, Redeemer of Souls is flat-out classic Priest, with a straightforward metal attack that still finds time for singer Rob Halford to show off his stunning vocal range on “Sword of Damocles.” The opening “Dragonaut,” the title track, and “Down in Flames” capture the power chord metal of the band’s classic albums Killing Machine, British Steel, and Screaming for Vengeance. A sense of farewell is built into a number of the songs, though the band, in interviews, maintain they’re not done making albums. “Beginning of the End” means exactly that, the beginning of the end, not the end. The deluxe version adds five songs, including the catchy but still heavy “Snakebite” and the epic and sentimental “Never Forget.”

Customer Reviews

Bland Grind. Like Gas Station Coffee.

If you're really hurting for some Priest and have nothing else to play, I suppose it's alright. But there's nothing really catcy in any of these songs... just the standard grinding guitars and beats with nothing fresh. They haven't made a groundbreaking album since Screaming for Vengeance, and there's nothing left for them to prove. This is just going throught the motions to keep the brand alive. In addition, the production sounds like the engineer put blankets over the microphones. It's always nice to know your heroes are still alive, but this doesn't bring anything to their legacy. This is just more proof that rock, like all forms of popular music, is dead and gone.

Richie Faulkner

Finally, a Priest album with the talent of Richie Faulkner included. Thank you, guys, for the forward march of heavy metal British steel. Great band. Great men.

Not diggin' the mix

Long time lover of Priest, but I don't like the mix on this. It sounds like they're trying to make it sound "old". With today's sound engineering technology, it should be a bit more crisp. Maybe I'll change my mind when it comes out but no pre-purchase here for me.

Judas Priest was one of the most influential heavy metal bands of the '70s, spearheading the New Wave of British Heavy Metal late in the decade. Decked out in leather and chains, the band fused the gothic doom of Black Sabbath with the riffs and speed of Led Zeppelin, as well as adding a vicious two-lead guitar attack; in doing so, they set the pace for much popular heavy metal from 1975 until 1985, as well as laying the groundwork for the speed and death metal of the '80s.
