|Richie in his 40s! Yikes! |
Man, I don't want to wait until TOMORROW! Still, wait for another tour or another album? While an extremely tough call, I'd have to say album. Back catalog? Yes. We all know they have it. Epitaph! We all wanted it. Did get a few gems and wanted more for the TRUE "Faithful." Just a "one-off" show! Yes, too much to ask, I know. Still, one can dream.

@JD Everybody ? , i dont want to wait until 2018 and then 2022 I WILL BE 54 for crying out loud watching 3 x 70 somethings trying to rock on stage with a 61 year old drummer , Hell even Richie will be in his 40s lol! would i go? of course i would but i dont want to them to miss more steps than they are already , here is an idea , i have never understood why they wont release some back catalog items , keep their name out there while they write the new album with this line up and if it does great , add some of those songs to the new album set list when they go out again, you cant tell me after 40+ years they dont have a deep pool of resources to draw from, Thoughts from all?

|Absolutely Ritchie is the best guitarist of this era 2011 -onwards....He is not a K.K. Clone...his different style and sound speaks for itself. |
It was Jane Andrews idea to dress Faulkner like K.K. with the vest and flying V.....its like I said before the same idea as dressing Tommy Thayer in Ace's makeup...like K.K. said from a distance it appears nothing has changed..
They should of dressed Ritchie in what he first appeared in his leathers were not a vest and his guitar was not a flying V...it looked un-K.K. like. Jane probably figured it would be more profitable $ if she made Ritchie look like K.K. THAT is the ONLY thing I think is lame,just that issue. Other than that,everything is supurb.
@Budred... As far as this new direction the new album is headed as I read what you did on Blabbermouth...I dont think they will go "TOO FAR" off the deep end as they did with Turbo,Demolition and Nostradamous. On the other hand they will NOT make another ROS part 2 as they have said.
Its a mystery as to what we're gonna get. Im sure it'll be something us cult followers will like,let's hope at least. Redeemer Of Souls was thier most stripped down and Raw LP,so Im thinkin this new one will have much better production,and progressive elements throughout without going off the deep end like I mentioned above.
It's a Priest album so of course it's going to take on 100% criticism the first month it's released before the dust settles. Like acolytee55 mentioned,the band is at cult status at this point,anyone outside our likings for the band will DEMAND another British Steel,Screaming For Vengeance,Defenders Of The Faith or Painkiller or BUST ...if not they wont listen to it let alone BUY the new album. How are Priest going to top those albums?
They Can't. Impossible. But to us they don't NEED to,and they don't have to. We all like Sin After Sin even though it's not as good as Painkiller. Ect,ect.....
So no matter what they put out,it's already waiting for criticism. Negative criticism. And most likely unjust criticism.
Those kind of Priest fans are like fair weather football fans. Thier not real Priest fans,nor are those who are ultra fan boys...just like it all,its all good if its Judas Priest blah blah. Totally lame.
This new album will be released next year 2018 early. I just dont see how they plan on making another one after this,especially since right when ROS was released in 2014 they said they cant afford to wait another 3 or 4 years for Redeemer's follow up,yet here we are with the new album due approx 4 years after ROS.
Which theoretically means the album after this new one will be due 2022!'
No way this band is onstage playing a new album's material in 2022. Right?

|1 post I seen, It was a fan comment on the YGATC , was that Richie was "a 40 year old Randy Rhoads " High Praise indeed |
|[acolyte55] Thursday, February 09, 2017 6:19:13 PM|| |
|I agree @guido @JD , no one can ever copy KK , no one can ever match his solo on VOC or many other staple Priest classics ,truly amazing and glad I got to see him work , I don't want Richie to be like KK , I want Richie to be himself , I think he cemented himself in Priest on the YGATC solo from the Battle Cry DVD , which I believe is superb, The thing that impressed me the most (I believe I posted it before?) is . Rob proving his MG status to me when he worked that crowd of younger and heavier listening crowd until he won them over and pretty soon it was a giant Karaoke party with everyone belting out the songs ,Impressive to say the least !!!!|

|Well Val, I was going to respond and clicked the wrong icon and just reported your comment as offensive. Sorry.
I would have bought Battle Cry on DVD but I was afraid to after buying the Epitaph dvd. The editing is too much for me. Too quick to jump from scene to scene.
It bothers me trying to watch it. Maybe I'll watch a few videos first and see if it's any better.

|Writing "Turbo" in Marbella, Spain! Funny as I listened to it there. Beautiful. loudwire.com/rob-halford-loves-judas-priest-more-ever-reflects-30th-anniversary-turbo/|
LOVED "Battle Cry," the DVD and can't wait for my copy of "Turbo" 30 to arrive (due in 2 damn days...grrrr). Looking more for the concert that is on the bonus than anything else there. As for the new recording? Who the heck could NOT be excited about Richie on a new Priest album? I loved ROS! Loved him on the past tours. What he has been able to bring to an "established" band without distorting it or alienating it to the hardcore fans has been nothing short of phenomenal. Just an amazing fit. Glenn has said it, Rob has said it. I think anyone who has seen him play has said it! No, he is NOT K.K. He isn't trying to be and I don't expect him to be. He is simply one talented MO FO who has fit into the band in an almost uncanny and seamless manner. Rob mentions that he knows that "the clock is ticking" and we all realize that as well. However, when both he and Glenn say that we should expect great things from the new recording? HOLY CRAP!! Can't wait!

|http://loudwire.com/rob-halford-loves-judas-priest-more-ever-reflects-30th-anniversary-turbo/ @Guido and @JD , I truly agree , I think they are going to blow us away with the next album !!! and yes to the priest shirt , I went to the Loose Moose in Vancouver on Nelson street , Great little bar , good food, friendly staff, and they play metal all day long , the owner is a HUGE maiden fan and a great guy , anyway everyone goes there before you go to a concert because you don't have to listen to mainstream and it is usually a big sing along before the concert(in this case IM, and the sing along was better ;) it is fantastic to be in a roomful of like minded people!!!!!! and there were 150 IM shirts.....1 Priest shirt (of course me , I guess I won lol ) |

|You know I love it! Richie's guitar-playing just gives a much-needed "umpf" to 'Priest's live sound. |
Now get the DVD (if you haven't done so yet)!!!

|Recently purchased "Battle Cry" cd. Totally amazed at just how well this turned out. I have to say I'm getting used to Richie quite well.
His changes to their sound actually put a twist on this disc that made it refreshing. It wasn't a rehash of what we've already heard. Great stuff!
|[Budred] Monday, February 06, 2017 4:33:42 AM|| |
|Rob says they are going in a new direction on this. Interesting to say the least. My curiosity is piqued. Thoughts?|
|[J.D. DIAMOND] Sunday, February 05, 2017 6:09:48 AM|| |
|@acolytee55 & guido ... I agree,and ha ha nice way to put it acolytee55,your right though.Could ROS production been better? Yeah,sure. But it ain't THAAAAAAAAT Bad,not as bad as people make it out to be that is for sure,they missed the brilliance in the simplicity of the album and it's songs. I guarantee this new album which will be released I'd guess January 2018 will have a better production than ROS. I bet this new album will top Redeemer Of Souls,THAT would be kick butt.|

|Oh, my fav was "the Oprah of the metal world!" LOL!!! |
To me, not like watching paint dry, though. More like fingernails scratching a chalkboard now! Amazing how I just can't stand to listen to them. On the flipside, I have a buddy who just the other day mentioned Billy Sheehan whereupon, like a good Priest fan, I mention Tipton and his solo album work. Buddy was amazed. He had always liked Priest and, as a guitarist, appreciated the fact that Priest is just at another level musically but then I bring up the whole second Tipton (Entwhistle / Powell) recording and pass both to him. LOVED them and, subsequently, he goes back to Priest. So here we have a guy who normally listens to classical music who is amazed at the skill-level of the almighty Priest? But of course!! Think I could bring the latest recording of Maiden along and have him hear how the "fugues" depart and converge just like a Vivaldi composition? HELL NO! My exact point to him!! Maiden songs of today? The damn FUGUES just run for 13 minutes and change tempos so often that you either get so bored or lose track that they cease becoming a "fugue" by definition! It is all but maddening!!
100% agree that the fanboy ballwashers can HAVE their Maiden of today. I, too, revel in that cult of Priest. Wearing a Priest shirt in a public place such as an airport? Without question, a conversation starter on many an occasion and that conversation has always been a positive one.

|I totally agree JD , IM sucked when I seen them last April, bad sound , really bad set list , first 5 songs topped out at over 30 minutes , like watching paint dry , Dickinson just yells into the mike now , and people eat it up , That album BOS was absolute drivel , but not a bad word was really said about it , IM is like the Oprah of the metal world , no one will speak ill of them , meanwhile Priest puts out an absolute masterpiece compared to IM's overlong Prog-rock penis sucking session ,and gets crappy reviews . I enjoy the almost cult status Priest has , I seen them in a 1,000 seat venue and they absolutely rocked it , they were interactive and looked to be enjoying themselves completely, they are our secret and if I don't have to share them with 48,000 other people ........ Good! , let others be sheep and oblivious to the crap they are eating up , they are a bunch of fan boy ball washers , Until Dickinson can sing again ...... Make mine Priest!!!!|
|[J.D. DIAMOND] Thursday, February 02, 2017 5:42:47 AM|| |
|@acolytee,guido I read that as well from blabbermouth. Yeah watch,it'll be something kick ass and people will shit all over it with negative reviews like when ROS was released. Although after almost three years now I actually think there are more positive opinions than negative...maybe 60% to 40% of fans like the album,at least thats the way it seems. |
I don't know why Priest gets beat up the most with the critics and fans every time they release an album,its been this way since I've been into the band.
While Maiden puts out B SIDE MATERIAL (at best) with every release starting with Somewhere in Time -31 years ago and no matter what they put out,its all great reviews,I just don't get it lol.
Watch this new Judas album top Redeemer Of Souls! I believe they CAN. This band IS truely amazing.
