On the topic of the next studio album, something with the ferocity of Jugulator and Painkiller please maybe some death metal growls in their Sir Halford as i heard him doing them at Priest Feast along with some trademark screams. Something with some awesome heavy-ass drumming but back to more melodic solo's, more memorable occasions such as, Beyond the Realms of Death, Rock Hard Ride Free, Touch of Evil and Demonizer. I know its hard to put them all together but thats what i need from Priest right now. Maybe some cool bass fills from Ian too let him ring out more like on Abductors, One on One and Metal Messiah!

I might not know all of the tech spec but i know enough to get me by. Yes i am a drummer and on skill level and being fun to watch Scott does it for me over Holland. Na i never saw Priest back in the 80's unfortunately i was born when they released ram it Down and the only concerts i saw featuring Holland were Live Vengeance and Turbo on the Electric Eye DVD. As for not much else after Painkiller, Jugulator is by far the best drumming album for Scott and he shows his real talent here fair enough Halford wasn't with the band but the other 4 were and i still love the music produced in the Ripper years. If i had to pick an individual track i would say that Bullet Train is his best drumming performance with Priest or definately near the top. AOR was a fantastic album for drumming, the drumbeat for Revolution alone was hands down the most creative beat i've ever heard from any Priest drummer. Judas is Rising, Deal with the Devil, Demonizer and Hell-rider are all great drum tracks too. Nostradamus i agree his drumming isn't the most creative but i guess it's what fits although there are some exceptions, Persecution, Pestilence and Plague, Conquest, prophecy and Nostradamus are great tracks for drums even if not the most complicated but fun to play. Yeah Scott has a lot of stage presence behind the kit and he's always flowing and loose rather than being stiff. As for no detail and leaving out intricate parts of songs done by Holland, could you please give a few examples? I'm not attacking here i just want to see what you mean and i'll tell you if i agree.

That's the beauty of Priest they never stay the same. They always change it up and you never know what to expect, the only thing you can largely rest assured of is it will be well worth buying and listening to for hours on end!

I was listening today while driving. It is a fantastic driving album. Solar Angles and driving go better than oreos and milk!!! 

Okay okay, that went a little too far. 

Also White heat, red hot is awsome. I have not heard it in forever. Today I have listened to several Priest albums ( As you can tell ) and I have no fricken clue what they will do next.

Right on about the band members Moving further in line with this topic, I think Priest should do something very ballsy, an album chocful of pure bone crunching metal, with a bit of a medieval and fantasy beast land feel to itself, much like Saxon nowadays. Into The Labyrinth (their new, ass-kicking album) would be a great inspiration for Priest.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by icecreamman from Monday, February 16, 2009 5:48:15 PM)

I agree Piont of Entry is much greater than it is given credit for. I really do like all the albums. Ram it Down is another hidden treasure too, it is one of Robs best vocal performances, despite the less than stellar lyrics.

I have never seen JP live. I had tickets to see them in VA, but I had some helth issues at the time and was unable to attend. I would kill to see them live. 

Heres a story for you, my girlfriend hated metal. Let me repeat HATED METAL. I let her borrow Angel of Retribution and Demolition and now she loves metal, mostly Priest and Megadeth. It is sad that my generations idea of metal is bands like Slipknot and Korn. People do not know what they are missing out on. Maybe I am just strange, I really do not like many "newer" bands. I mean my favorite four bands are as listed-
1. Judas Priest
2. The Rolling Stones
3. AC/DC
4. Megadeth

I think it is very sad though when people can not name a single member from the Rolling Stones, worst of all some kids think they are a clothing line. I wear a JP shirt to school and people think Judas Priest is a person!!! I do not claim my generation.

As you can tell I am ADD,  I can not stay on one topic.

Kudos for you!  I have bought most of the Priest Catalog about 3 times now. Once on LP, then again on Cassette when I got my car, then again when my record player died and I could not longer play them on the old stereo. 
I think Point of Entry, except for one song, is an excellent album. I love all their stuff but there are songs on that record I really liked when I was young and still do!

I  have to admit it is not my favorite Priest album, but I am 17 and most of JP's music was made before I excisted, and Turbo to me is a good album. I think a lot of Priest fans were alienated during that time period, to alienated to appreciate the album. Its like Nosrtadomus, you have to excpect something different. Both are great albums. Its a funny story that the 1st JP album I ever heard was British Steel, it was one of my Dads old records, and then I found Turbo which was on Cassette. I loved British Steel, and still do; but when I put in Turbo I remember thinking WTF? I just did not know what to think. I think that most Priest fans felt that way, and I understand. I just wish the critics would actually admire that Priest are a band who are constantly changing thier sound.  I also wish JP would play Reckless live, it is a great song.

By the way, I own all the Priest albums now, and I love them all.

I don't dislike Turbo, I thought it had it's merits for the time it was made and there are some songs on there that still make me very happy. But as Priest goes, I think it was one of their most "trendy" albums and therefore, why it does not stand the test of time as many other LP's. IMO.

I heard something about them remaking Turbo.

Just Kidding!!!!

But why does eveyone hate Turbo. It is everything it was meant to be, and there is some great guitar work on that album.

I see you worship the Metal Gods as I do! LOL
If you want a NASCAR THREAD There is a pro sports Quarem down at the bottom of the board under beyond the realms of Priest.
If you serch the threads you may actually find a Nascar thread but I don't recall ever seeing myself.

Rob Halford- Greatest Metal Singer
KK Downing- One of the two greatest guitarist
Glenn Tipton- One of the two greatest guitarist
Ian Hill- Bass Monster
Scott Travis- God of Drums

I think anything they put out will blow us away!!!

I heard there may be a live album out soon with Exciter on it. Does anyone know anything about it?

Also, I know this is random, is there any NASCAR fans on here?

One more thing I think Goats Head Soup is the most under rated Stones album there is. Critics bash it but to me it is great. Does anyone agree?.....

JT: Are you a drummer too? You seem to know alot about drums (drum specs wow..) in general and about the "big hard rock sound" from the 80's. You also mention the studio too...(like you know). All Im saying is Travis plays the older material with no detail and leaves out the intricate parts of the songs. Did you see Holland w/ JP live in your day or are you going off your SFV video? Also stage presence behind what? the drums?

Also, Travis has been criticized (sp?) on the last 2 JP releases: AOR & NSTRDMS "of mailing it in" in the studio on his drum playing...I'll give you Painkiller but after that....not much 

Everyone has an opinion & that's whats great.

Oh man please, Holland was a great time keeper and all but he had as much stage presence as a wet fart. As for having the thump, that was down to the drum specs alone, back in the 80's kits were made with larger and deeper sized toms for a more hard rock feel, hence the intense sound of the kit on albums such as Screaming for Vengeance and Defenders of the Faith. Travis uses a kit more for modern metal with a clean cut sound but is not as deep. His toms are way smaller and he uses a much smaller kit than what Holland did. But Travis plays with way more power i mean have you seen the size of him? and if you disagree, ( should prove that point. I agree sometimes he looks bored but its because he is used to challenging himself with technical drumming from the likes of Racer X, Painkiller and Angel of Retribution. He still entertains the crowd massively with such stunts as stick throwing.. and catching, stick twirling, hand switching on some songs and interacting with the crowd. His double bass work is flawless for what he does and it puts him light years ahead of Holland. At least he manages to play songs from the Simon Philips/ Les Binks era correctly as Holland failed miserably at that i mean listen to Sinner and Victim of Changes from the Live Vengeance 82 DVD (i know Les didn't record on Sad Wings od Destiny but his version is much better than Alan Moore's) which Scott plays perfectly. Long live Scott and the rest of the metal Gods!   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by Maple Syrup from Friday, February 06, 2009 2:36:38 PM)

I think the next realease will be something we were really not expecting. Something bold, new, and different, just like they have done all along. Never move backwards, afterall Defenders was 24 years ago, I'm sure they have a progessive styling commin up that we will just be blown away by.

I wish that the recording process was as fast as it was in the old days. I am just happy it does not take priest 5 ( Metallica)  or eight years ( AC/DC) to recored an album. Nostradamus was done in just three and it is a monsterous masterpiece. I would just love to see how they follow it up. The Halford led Priest have been on a "hot streak". 

 Another concept album would be a little too much, but a great heavy metal album like Defenders of the Faith would be cool.
