tasnam1! Nice to see you man and like you Vail and guido said
Firepower is awsome!

I've listened to every album in it's entirety these last few weeks and
from doing so by god damn it anyways .... I did say Firepower was
equal to any Classic Priest album there is. Then I said it wasnt.
Then I said it was. So for the final time trust me I've made up my
mind now,you got to remember I did a lot of partying in the 80's lol

Yeah it's smoking in fire this album is BUT.... no,not equal which isn't
a bad thing,it's just too hard to equal Screaming for Vengeance.
Without K.K. it may be just too hard to achieve but Firepower is
such a great Priest record. I think if Glenn never had Parkinson's
and was able to shread solos like he used to,it would of been equal
even without K.K. But man it's got to be the band's 6th best album
out of 18 studio albums though.

Tasnam! Good to see ya!

In a nutshell? There is no way to get emails when people post to threads here. I don't believe there has EVER been such a thing. :( 

(yes, Firepower IS awesome though!! )

Technical website question here (sorry).

Where is there a button to get email alerts when this topic gets new posts?

I haven't been on this site for years and would like to get updates when people post to threads....

Thanks for the help.

 @JD I would agree, no Sneap, Glenn on those 5 songs, subtle arpeggio work and slide work as well 
[J.D. DIAMOND] Saturday, July 28, 2018 11:22:24 PM 
@Vail yeah 100% no way Glenn or Rob would allow Andy playing a solo on the album,no way
so it's most likely Ritchie's solo. The 5 tracks in a row in the middle of the album are definitely
Glenn's solos in there,it's his signature style.

But the rest is too hard to figure out because some of Ritchie's solo style has a little Glenn
influence in there especially the 2nd half of the Firepower solo and especially the No Surrender
solo sounds exactly what Glenn would of done,but not in a bad way,it's understanding being
Ritchie had Glenn to learn from for the last 7 yesrs.

Glenn's 5 solos mentioned are incredible considering his Parkinson's. I wonder if he'll even
be able to play on a next album. Idk,doesn't matter if they ever make another album. Firepower
Redeemer Of Souls and Angel Of Retribution are 3 elite albums we have so I'm just Glad we even
get to have an incredible album in 2018.

I know this is a late response to this post, but Evil Never Dies is certainly a tricky one. On the studio track, the guitar tone for that first solo is different. Sounds more like Richie's to me. Why is Andy playing it live? Maybe it's one less solo for Richie to worry about? Don't forget, Richie is also playing some of Glenn's parts/solos on the majority of the classic songs in the setlist. One other possiblity is that it's a Glenn solo that Andy had to play in the studio himself...which makes me wonder as to just how recently this track was made. One of the last ones, maybe? Anyway. The big point? If there's going to be a Glenn solo, it's going to sound like it's coming from his guitar(s). He doesn't seem to be the type to have others play his solos for him, much less in a studio setting.

My two cents there.

Perhaps Glenn is just on 5 tracks all in a row because those are 100% Glenn:

#5. Necromancer -------------2nd trade off solos for sure
#6. Children Of The Sun ---2nd solo right before: "Mountains Start to crumble"....
#7. Guardians ------------------Both
#8. Rising from Ruins ------2nd solo
#9. Flame Thrower ----------2nd solo

The rest Ritchie? One thing that they could do differently would be
not to over lay the next part of the solo over the top of a finishing
one like in the title track Firepower Ritchie plays this entire solo
not only live but before they went on tour there was a video of him
playing it along with the studio version is what is heard.

On the audio it sounds like of course Ritchie when the solo hits but
You can hear the next part of the solo sliding down into the part that
finishes the solo... when I first heard this I thought Glenn kicked in
with his solo to finish but it is definitely Ritchie.

Either way still Glenn rips out 5 solos on this record for sure and
Ritchie's solo' s are outstanding to say the least. Glenn had so much
more input to the song writing and structure of those tracks.

 Will do JD, I will have another listen and post here-Acolyte
[J.D. DIAMOND] Wednesday, July 25, 2018 5:05:51 PM 
Ok so I was dead wrong on the solo to No Surrender,I thought it sounded
like Glenn for the life of me,but the video proves it's Ritchie.

Now... the solos:

Firepower --------------- Ritchie
Lightning Strike -------Ritchie
Evil Never Dies ---------first solo GLENN second Ritchie
Never The Heros------- I did say Glenn,but changing to Ritchie
Necromancer ---------- trade offs: Ritchie/Glenn/Ritchie/Glenn
Children Of The Sun ---first solo Ritchie second Glenn
Guardians -----------------Both
Rising from Ruins ------first solo Ritchie second Glenn
Flame Thrower ----------first solo Ritchie second Glenn
Spectre ---------------------Ritchie
Traitors's Gate -----------Ritchie
No Surrender -------------Ritchie
Lone Wolf ------------------Ritchie
Sea Of Red ----------------Glenn then Ritchie

Where am I wrong now if I am?

I know the first solo in Evil Never Dies has a guitar wha effect Ritchie
uses alot but live Andy plays this part....if it's Ritchie then why would
Andy play his solo? Leads me to think it's Glenn.

Guido? Head Banger? Acolyte? Vail? Nupe?

What do you me figure out Glenn's solos
