MY FIRST FAVORITE BAND WAS BLACK SABBATH, BUT NOW JUDAS PRIEST
|[Senior Rocker] Friday, February 20, 2009 3:03:32 AM|| |
|Best pre-Priest gig I saw was Iron Maiden original lineup supported by Trust! There are & have been some great rock bands but there is only one truly METAL band; Guess who.....................|

Hey Udo! Might I add these lyrics,
I now issue the call, are you ready to fight?
Fight all together as one for the right to be free once again,
Tonight we will win!
I can see by the look that you have in your eyes
You came here for Metal, To fight and to die
Defenders of Steel, Now we are home!
Fight for the kingdom bound for glory
Armed with a heart of steel
I swear by the brothers who stand before me
To no man shall I kneel
Their blood is upon my steel
Blood is upon my steel!!!
They rule dude! All hail The Metal Kings!!!!!

|MANOWAR and close up Judas Priest.|
It has something to do with lyrics like these:
Stand and fight
Live by your heart
Always one more try
Im not afraid to die
Stand and fight
Say what you feel
Born with a heart of steel
They kinda summon up my life...

|Way back when I first discovered hard rock/metal AC/DC was my first favorite band. I guess they are hard rock though and not really metal (AC/DC themselves don't like to be called a metal band) so my first favorite full on metal band was Dio. Now it is Priest though. And it honestly is Priest, I'm not just saying that because this is the Priest message board.|
|[SilentWarrior*] Sunday, August 31, 2008 8:43:15 PM|| |
|First metal band was Megadeth, after Slayer, than Judas!|
|[Steeler84] Sunday, August 31, 2008 7:23:44 PM|| |

|I heard the same interview and couldn't have said it better myself. And I agree with your opinion of DP. Most, if not all the bands from that era would be better classified as Hard Rock as a precursor to Heavy Metal, just not Metal quite yet. |
But they ALL gave birth to Priest, and we all know the story after that!!!

Oops... Much thanks to 'MetalFanDownUnder' for reminding me of "Deep Purple" -- 1st album I ever bought...
But do you classify DP as 'metal'? More like 'hard rock', wouldn't you say? I think Priest were the first real 'metal' band. I read somewhere in an interview that either Halford or Downing response to someone's opinion that, "Ozzy is heavy, and JP is metal" was, "I like that."

|Judas Priest since 1978.|
Kiss before Priest (1976) but for me Kiss is a true hard rock band.

|There was no such thing as HEAVY METAL when I heard Burning Up off the Hell Bent album at a friend's house. I have been a DIE HARD M F'N PRIEST FAN since!!! No other band even come's remotely close to Priest in my heart of hearts. |

|My first favorite metal band was Ozzy's solo band. Saw the 'Bark At The Moon' video on an old TV show called Friday Night Videos. I was hooked from then on, but got swept up in the whole hair metal thing that was dominating Mtv in the 80's. I credit Metallica's hit 'One' for beginning to straighten me out though, and I also have to credit the payroll guy from one of the US Navy air wing's (his name escapes me at this time), for having someone to talk with about metal.|
|[sweatysock] Monday, July 21, 2008 5:52:18 PM|| |
|Introduced to Sabbath in the late '70s by friends and got right into the metal scene then. Loved Friday nights at The Ruskin Arms (Stratford, east London) where there would usually be a live band. The first live band I saw was at The Ruskin - Desolation Angels, who released a decent single at the time called Valhalla. Very limited edition. Never did find out if they made it big, but they certainly had talent.|

|Always has been Judas Priest! Many moons ago I was in Leicester (UK) with nothing to do in the evening! Judas Priest were playing Demontfort Hall, so I went without knowing much about their music and I was just blown away by the show! Been a big fan eversince! |
Although I now live in the states I'm disappointed that I can't make the Camden N.J. show!would have been awsome to see the boys in America!
