Just seen both Priest and Maiden in the last 2 weeks.Although Maiden always put on a good show, many of the songs from the last few albums are long winded sagas which are technically very good I suppose, but I can't get interested in them. As they played at least 5 or 6 of them it took up a good chunk of the set.I enjoyed the Priest show much more.

I can play a judas priest track any time & enjoy it, whereas I have to be in the mood for iron maiden.

Does Judas Priest plan on adding dates for shows in the North East part of the US ( Massachusetts ) ?
It's unfortunate cuz Maiden skipped this part of the country last year as well. I had to drive to NJ to see them.

as a fan from back in the days, i saw priest first, cause they were on the scene first-they paved the way 4 maiden n slayer, metallica, anthrax, motorhead, etc

Both awesome but Priest is transcendent.  Honestly don't think it is fair to compare Priest with anyone.

My collection of Iron Maiden songs is not as complete as my Judas Priest collection but from what I have heard many Iron Maiden songs seem to have some relation to a battle of some kind, whether it be "Run To The Hills" or "The Trooper". Judas Priest has a multitude of different topics in their songs. Rob Halford is the best singer in heavy metal. Bruce Dickinson is second only to him. Rob has always had more of a range than other metal singers.

 Hi Badactress. There is nothing one-dimensional about Iron Maiden's music. In fact, the appeal of Maiden is that the songs have layers and layers of interest. I'm not really into the years when Dickingson was out of IM but even then the songs were not completely flat. 
I started listening to metal like many others: with Judas Priest and Iron Maiden and they both took me to extraterrestrial landscapes. 

However, if you do a Iron Maiden VS Metallica comparison, now I have to say that Iron Maiden are better, period.

Hi Nupe!
After reading your comments, I have no fears/qualms about passing over the Ripper years.  I don't like the more modern metal sound (no fan of Metallica, either!)  And Rob's songwriting is something that has always struck some kind of resonance with me, so, glad I didn't miss anything there! Also - while might like 2 or 3 songs by IM, I've never been enough of a fan to shell out anything for a CD or concert tickets for them.  Priest all the way!

The Ripper Years are quite modern-sounding compared to the classic Priest albums. They sound quite trashy, and Demolition even has a few industrial metal influences in it, lol. I don't like the more modern sound (if I did I'd be listening to Metallica) and quality-wise they're pretty much crap; they're really missing the songwriting ability of Rob. And, of course Tim uses a slightly lower range than what Rob has ever had so hat also makes it feel different.

Try before you buy, if you're asking me.

Oh, and my reply to this topic is pretty obvious. I've never ever gotten into Maiden, there's just something in their sound that I don't like.

Hey Badactress - I'm LMFAO, because, like you, I've never listened to anything from the Ripper years.......quite possible out of loyalty to Rob.  To me, it just ain't Priest without him - his voice IS what Priest is to me.  I'm sure there are many people that would say that's a pretty dumb way of thinking and I should give Tim Owens a chance, especially since I've been voicing my displeasure at fans who don't want to give Richie Faulkner a chance, but to me, the vocals are the first and last thing that I associate with a certain band...the music and musicians are still a hugely important part of the whole sound, but for me it's Rob or nothing!

Love them both, but Priest is definitely the more challenging and intelligent musically of the two. Maiden are purely bombastic and chest beating one dimensional metal. Which is great! However Painkiller blows every other band away on that front, and then Priest will hit you with a crushing ballad that tears at your heartstrings.. or they'll do something crazy and uplifting that just fills you with joy. Haha ok I'm going to stop before I get carried away! I vote Priest! :)

You know what though.. I've never heard a single song.. not even one note from anything that they did with Ripper. If anyone is still reading my ramling.. Are "the ripper years" worth trying? Do they come close to classic priest? I just can't imagine Priest without Rob. My ears close up at the thought of it!!

buenas tardes soy de san sebastian,tengo 44 años y llevo 30 escuchando heavy,respecto a esta pregunta yo no tengo ninguna duda,judas son los mejores,un saludo.
[Jorggee] Monday, June 13, 2011 6:12:47 PM 

 My answer is clearly Judas Priest.

Just listen at their Riffs, are far more sticky and complex, the drumms are unbelivable and Rob's voice is simply Iconic

But what truly gives somme points to Judas, are the Ballads they write, "Angel" Or "Lost Love" have really touched my soul.
