Really Judas Priest's Nostradamus is a well put together recording of an innovative and original craft and is something "different".But does 'different" mean that it is always going to be "better"?
In my books,no it does not.I think that Nostradamus is an "overkill".I mean really guys, we really want about 10 soft slow ballads on one Priest record?
If Angel Of Retribution had 10 songs on it just like "Angel" and only 1 or 2 songs on it like "Judas Rising"...then it would'nt be that great of an album for Judas Priest.I just can't understand why Nostradamus had to have 22 tracks and half of them are un-Priest-like-ballads? Why?
It is so boring to me that it took away from the over-all point to this album. I really think that the band "over-did-it".  Overkill is the word for this.
This album should not of been an actual Judas Priest album,and like I said before I think that the band should of put Judas Priest on hold and named this band/project of 2008 "Nostradamus" instead of Judas Priest. This would'nt make me like the album any better,but it would of made me feel better knowing that "this is not a Judas Priest album" I could of told myself. But now,it is what it is obviously. 

In my opinion....The band must return into the studio and create a masterpiece that reeks of "Judas Priest" in every way shape and form.We really need a classic British metal album from them before they retire and hang up the leathers guys.

I dont think they will play that long.. they are playing small venues this time around.. ( amp-theaters ) ect.. I dont thin they will play a full fledged set this around, or at least not as long as the last tour...  HOPEFULLY they do.. that would be great....  Iam going to see Ac/DC this summer...  if they come here around the same time as priest is supposed to be in MN .. Iam going to see Ac/Dc instead of priest.. I have not gotten the chance to see the Ac/Dc boys live yet..

Do they offer the meet and greet for every show ?  I hope they play the same songs they played back in 1980 . Sinner , The Ripper , Genocide, Tyrant , Runnibg Wild, Beyond The Realms and the entire BS Album !!!!! I will be there in Cleveland Rockin in the summer HEAT !!!

Keep in mind that British Steel is only 35 minutes long. That leaves about another hour and 20 minutes or so for more songs. There's definitly gonna be more then 17 songs.

I dont think they would have gotten on mainstream radio no mater what the album or singles were like.  I think they took the chance that revolution was different enough it might get on there.  heard it a few times on local FM.  never heard worth fighting for.  I like that song actualy.  Angel or wheels of fire might have made the airwaves, I doubt judas Rising would.  leastways not here.  but any real metal is always a sideline, of something the DJ sneeks in when the boss isnt listening on most FM.

AOR was grossly unpromoted. They promoted Revolution and Worth Fighting For which quite frankly say nobody cares about as metal songs. They should have put Judas Rising out as a go-for-the-throat-return-of-priest kinda song, and put Angel out as another great ballad, and Wheels Of Fire as a very radio friendly tune.  Talk about Nostradamus...they promoted War which although being a nice song, isn't what you'd want promoted for 'Priest. Should have done a music video for Death. Still...I hold thumbs up for hearing Wheels Of Fire live at some point. Same goes for One Shot At Glory.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by J.D. DIAMOND from Friday, March 27, 2009 4:11:54 AM)

Yes I agree, Wheels Of Fire  is definitely underrated man!! One of the best songs off  Angel Of  Retribution!   I really hope that Priest make another album that is as good as Angel Of Retribution!!

They should consider replacing The Green Manalishi with Wheels Of Fire. Much the same as they replaced Diamonds And Rust with Angel. Their own version of a song of same category and similar style as such will always kick more ass. What I find grossly unjust is...TGM is a cover and has been played out so much, whereas WOF being a 'Priest tune has gotten virtually no attention...neither in promotion, nor in concerts. *Crosses my fingers for this to be played*

Yes Cobra...Wheel Of Fire is a classic that gets no credit...but "Heading Out To The Highway" is an awsome song that is every bit as worthy as Wheels Of Fire!!!  Heading Out To The Highway is what got me into Judas Priest back in 1981!!
When I saw this video,it changed my entire musical outlook for sure!! 

Hot Rockin' is awsome too!!   But if you are talking about "On The Run" from Point Of Entry and how Wheel Of Fire is much better,than I agree!!  Desert Plains is an absolute Priest classic that stands the test of time as well as Wheels Of Fire.

Glad  you mentioned Wheels Of Fire. That is such a classic Priest tune and yet got no attention. It beats the shit out of any of those highway songs off Point Of Entry for sure. Would be great to hear Wheels Of Fire live. It's such a classic 'Priest tune.

I'm glad they shelved Nostradamus from playing it live,this is not what Judas Priest is all about anyways,yes Nostradamus is a well put together record,ect..a masterpiece of originality and very innovative,but really its not Judas Priest and its not what they do best.

I hope by playing British Steel live,they get back into that frame of mind of writting classic stylled Judas Priest songs like Angel Of Retribution's "Judas Rising"....Deal With The Devil....Demonizer,Wheel Of Fire...Hellrider...elegy...ect...these are examples of real Judas Priest classics and this is what the band needs to be thinking about when writting the next LP.
[metalmaz] Wednesday, March 25, 2009 4:18:56 PM 
Yes. So much for all that waxing lyrical about playing the whole album!

They did very few songs from it on tour.

Now the "evening with Nostradamus" has been shelved and Priest will be playing an album recorded 28 years ago! 

British Steel is far superior, but I think it would be far better for them to do an eclectic setlist with some of the less played gems. There are so many after all

WHAT??? They removed the Summerfest show from the site? If they canceled it I'm gonna be pissed!!!
[Screamin' Demon] Wednesday, March 25, 2009 4:07:37 AM 
Question is...what will be the remaining songs in the setlist? Of course we will get songs like Electric Eye, Angel, Death, Painkiller, Hell Bent For Leather and You've Got Another Thing Comin' because they are must-play songs. But that still leaves room for another 2-4 songs in the list if they play a setlist of about 17 songs or slightly more. I'm putting my hopes out to One Shot At Glory, All Guns Blazing, Metal Meltdown, Judas Rising, Demonizer or anything else fast and furious from THIS lineup. Maybe even Nostradamus song.

We'll see about Nostradamus live. After all the whole band has been repeating over and over that they ARE going to play the entire album live. They've only been in production and planning for 3 fuckin years now haha.

But anyway...

Is anyone going to see Priest play British Steel in Toronto at the Molson Amphitheater on July 9th??????

I might possibly be going to see them on this and would love to meet anyone from the boards if there attending. I know some people from the Q are going as well.

C'mon folks, we all know why they aren't doing a "Nostradamus" Tour. IN addition to few people who would go to an exclusively all Nostrofest concert w/o a few
old hits, the economy sucks and it is nearly 30 years since British Steel was released. As far as I was concerned seeing them this past summer, Metal Gods was a highlight as Halford gave a vintage high note on "slaves". Would really like to hear him sing Rapid Fire since the last time I heard them do that one was with Tim Owens. Hearing the Rage done live sounds good too!!!  Crue are doing a "Dr. Feelgood" in its entirety tour too for Cruefest and hey , why not? Bob Rock didn't ruin their sound like he did to Metalllica! British steel was their 1st gold  studio album in the states and hey, it will sell some tickets. I actually like David Coverdale and hope he opens with Purple's "Burn" as he still can sing most of his older rep too! OK later, Kurt

I have to say that Living After Midnight and United are very irritating songs but hearing the rest of British Steel live would be wicked. The reason the Nostradamus tour has been "postponed" ( read that as cancelled ) is because Priest have pulled their heads out of their asses and come to terms with the fact that nobody is all that interested in hearing it in it's entirety. Except maybe the kind of wackos who listen to the bloody thing every day. 

[Maple Syrup] Wednesday, March 18, 2009 11:32:09 AM 
wouldnt it be great if they left out Breakin the Law & Living after Midnight from the setlist?
