JD. My favorite thing about Priest over all these years has been the constant change in music. I'm not like some people. I do not crave another Painkiller or British Steel or anything like that. My hope is that we get something that when you hear it you know it's Priest but it doesn't sound like anything they've done before. Just please, please, and please 100 more times don't let it be like Nostradamus. ... I finally received my Turbo 30 cd. I bought it for the live disc and to throw some support towards JP. Gotta say I freakin' love it. It sounds so much better than Priest Live. Love the rawness to it and it doesn't seem as synthesized and the tempo doesn't feel slowed like PL. I'm not really a fan of the "Live" album but this is fantastic. Glad I bought it and I'm loving the art work.

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?

[J.D. DIAMOND] Friday, February 10, 2017 8:58:25 PM 
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 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 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 !!!!
[Budred] Thursday, February 09, 2017 2:21:12 AM 
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.
[guidogodoy] Tuesday, February 07, 2017 7:23:29 PM 
Writing "Turbo" in Marbella, Spain! Funny as I listened to it there. Beautiful.
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!

[acolyte55] Monday, February 06, 2017 5:07:44 PM @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 )
[Vaillant 3.0] Monday, February 06, 2017 4:48:18 PM 
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! Anyone??
[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?

@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.
[guidogodoy] Thursday, February 02, 2017 11:22:00 PM 
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.

Am Nachmittag deutscher Zeit wird er einige präsidiale Erlasse unterzeichnen, vor allem, um Erlasse seines Vorgängers Barack Obama zu kassieren. Wahrscheinlich werden einige Umweltverordnungen aufgehoben. Auch die Erhöhung des Mindestlohns in Unternehmen, die für die Regierung Aufträge ausführen, könnte zurückgenommen werden.

What a fuckin joke ha ha the new Megadeth boot camp meet and greet camping package or what ever... I know some here dig the band...I've never been a fan of Mega Dave but hear me out... Mr. Dave Mustard is charging $2,000 per ticket just for the regular experience at his Cal. Estate,and $5,500 per person to camp on his property...

They are even having a s'mores party camp fireside where Mustard and Bass player Dave E. Will tell stories lofl. And Dave E. Is the minister on Sunday for church service for the 200 fanboys and girls of MegaDave... This is cringe worthy:

The "Mustaine Estate Package + Megadeth Boot Camp" will get you the following:

* Stay on-site in a private furnished bell tent with beds at the Mustaine Estate in Fallbrook, California Friday - Sunday

* Includes: Full bed with mattress and bedding, wool blanket, throw pillow, lounge furniture, area rug, side table, and a battery-operated lantern.

* Exclusive welcome gift

* Daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided on-site at Mustaine Estate

* Access to on-site private shower trailers and VIP restrooms

* Access to workshops and activities of your choice throughout the weekend

* Access to intimate acoustic performance by MEGADETH

* Preferred seating to campfire stories with MEGADETH

* Priority access to off-site wine tasting with Dave Mustaine (approx. 45 min away)

* Access to gardens and rock n' roll library on-site throughout the weekend

* On-site paparazzi to capture all your unforgettable moments

* Commemorative Megadeth Boot Camp laminate.

Ohhh boy isn't this swell lof loud. From Mustaine:

"Saturday morning, David Ellefson [MEGADETH bassist], as a guy that's got twenty-five years in a twelve-step program, is gonna do a meditational program that morning. And then Sunday, since he's pastor — some people would question that — he's gonna be doing a little non-denominational church service for us on Sunday morning. And then we're gonna do some more clinics and stuff like that. And Saturday night, we're gonna have like a s'mores party, and we're gonna sit around storytelling and stuff like that."

Lol what a joke.

It's confirmed, Turbo is also getting a 30th Anniversary release:

Slightly surprised that they're actually doing this, considering that it's among their more controversial albums and the band is seemingly willing to forget the whole thing ever existed (bar Turbo Lover).

The choice for bonus content also threw me off - following the example of Long Beach 1984, the St. Louis 1986 radio show would've been logical as it has been used for a number of b-sides and bonus tracks over the years. Instead, they're using the Kansas City show which was recorded a day earlier as a backup (and was later broadcast partially).

Oh well, one more bootleg I have to remove from my site because it's getting an official release!

Paukenschlag in den USA: Experten empfehlen Hillary Clinton, eine Neuauszählung einzuklagen. Sie haben Hinweise auf eklatante Stimmenunterschiede in Wisconsin, Michigan und Pennsylvania gefunden.

Nein, die US-Wahl ist noch nicht entschieden. Zumindest offiziell nicht. Und nicht nur, dass zwei Wochen nach dem historischen Wahltag das Endergebnis in mehreren Staaten noch immer nicht feststeht. Dieses wird nun offenbar auch noch in drei entscheidenden Swing States angezweifelt.

Nach Berichten des US-Nachrichtensenders CNN und des "New York Magazine" fordert ein Team von mehreren Wissenschaftlern die Demokratin Hillary Clinton auf, eine Neuauszählung der abgegebenen Stimmen in Pennsylvania, Michigan und Wisconsin einzuklagen.

Zu dem Team gehöre unter anderem der Leiter des Instituts für Computersicherheit und Gesellschaft an der Universität Michigan, J. Alex Halderman, wie es in den Berichten heißt.

Demnach haben die Experten Hinweise gefunden, dass die Ergebnisse der Stimmenabgaben in insgesamt drei Staaten manipuliert wurden. Die Erkenntnisse seien dem Clinton-Team erstmals vergangenen Donnerstag präsentiert worden.

So hätten die Wissenschaftler einen Trend beobachtet, nachdem Clinton in jenen Bezirken dieser Staaten deutlich schlechter abschnitt, wo elektronische Wahlmaschinen eingesetzt wurden.

In den Countys, in denen die Wähler ihr Kreuz händisch auf einem Wahlzettel machten und optische Scanner diese auswerteten, fuhr sie bessere Ergebnisse ein. In Wisconsin etwa soll der Unterschied sieben Prozent zuungunsten Clintons betragen.

Handfeste Beweise für eine Manipulation der Wahlmaschinen hätte das Team zwar nicht gefunden, jedoch sollten die Diskrepanzen in den Statistiken näher untersucht werden, fordern die Experten.

Trump liebäugelt mit "Popular Vote"

Nach einem erbitterten Wahlkampf, in dem auch Vorwürfe über Wahlmanipulationen laut wurden, hat Trump die US-Wahl nach aktuellen Auszählungen mit 290 Wahlmännerstimmen gewonnen. Für einen Sieg sind 270 Wahlleute nötig, Clinton kam auf 232.

Die Stimmen in Pennsylvania (20), Wisconsin (10) und Michigan (15) sind entscheidend für den Ausgang der Wahl. Sie gehören zu den sogenannten Swing States. Jene Staaten also, die anders als der Großteil auf keinen Wahlsieger festgelegt sind.

Nach letzten Auszählungen rangiert Trump in Pennsylvania nur 1,2 Prozentpunkte vor Clinton (48,8 Prozent zu 47,6 Prozent). Bei der Anzahl der abgegebenen Stimmen beträgt sein Vorsprung gerade einmal etwa 68.000 Stimmen. Er führt mit insgesamt 2.912.941 Stimmen zu 2.844.705.

In Wisconsin ist das Rennen mit einem Prozentpunkt (47,9 zu 46,9) noch enger. Mit insgesamt 1.409.467 gewonnenen Stimmen liegt Trump lediglich etwas mehr als 27.000 Stimmen vor Clinton (1.382.210).

Und in Michigan trennen beide gerade einmal 0,3 Prozentpunkte (47,6 zu 47,3). Wie hauchzart der Vorsprung ist, wird deutlich, wenn man die Anzahl der abgegeben Stimmen gegenüberstellt. Mit aktuell 2.279.805 Stimmen führt Trump mit 11.600 Stimmen vor Clinton, die momentan auf 2.268.193 Stimmen kommt.

Sieben Prozent Stimmenunterschiede, so sie denn in den jeweiligen Staaten bestehen, könnten die Wahl zugunsten Hillary Clintons entscheiden.

Ohnehin liegt die Demokratin bei der landesweiten "Popular Vote", der Auszählung aller abgebenen Stimmen, momentan deutlich vor ihrem Konkurrenten. Laut CNN holte sie insgesamt 63.515.988 Stimmen. Das sind 1,6 Millionen Stimmen mehr als ihr republikanischer Konkurrent, der auf 61.917.320 Stimmen kommt.

Während des Wahlkampfes hatte Trump mehrfach gesagt, dass er kein Fan des Wahlmännersystems ist. Bei einem Presse-Termin am Dienstag hatte er dies nun noch einmal betont. "Ich würde die Popular Vote vorziehen", sagte er der "New York Times". Dann wäre die Wahl allerdings längst entschieden. Auch offiziell.

While they ARE spooked here (hunters), there are a TON! When I say 25 in my driveway? That is a low count. Drives my dogs crazy which, in turn, drive ME crazy! "Yeah, thanks, little yippers" didn't notice."  Nice when they come and come to drink out of my pool as I can stand in my own dining room and get great shots. To post them, I'd have to FIND them, heh, but I could always take another any given day. Especially now in fall.

Ya know, HB, agreed that they DO sing well and it is really cool when I have a huge bonfire going in my backyard at night but that is really when they come out. Dusk. Wish I could comply with photos but they are easily spooked. All OVER the place here as are deer (counted up to 25 trotting down my driveway and jumping the fence into the field across the street from me but, as you know, they travel in closer groups. They coyotes do not. They make larger circles and, by the time I can get a camera out and zoom in on one? They bolt. All around here, though. So much so that I have to watch the little dogs at dusk lest I lose a rat terrier! Hell, Jake, the beagle mix is even at risk should they gang up on him! Even heard tales of the spotted hawks that fill my trees taking off with smaller dogs. Doubt that they could lift the smallest I have but we area a migratratory point for the bald eagle along the Mississippi too. THOSE are big suckers and too cool to see flying around in the wild. There is a sanctuary for wounded ones close to here and I love to visit when time permits. Earthquake formed the lake (Reelfoot Lake) that draws them near. Look up that lake sometime. KEWL! Shaker that got the Mississippi to flow backwards for weeks in the 1800s!

I'll try (as I always do) for the coyotes (or "cowts" as they pretty much pronounce it around here) but, while they are everywhere, time of day and the way they travel make catching a pic REALLY hard! Had one sneak up on me while I was burning scrub from my yard and didn't smell me as I was more in the line of the smoke. DAMN close but, of course, spooked him when I tried to grab a camera. Howeled all the way as he ran. KEWL experience, still....

Want a bunch of deer? Just let me know. Got tons. Come up from the field at dawn and down in the evening and sometimes in the middle of the day. Never tire of taking shots of those. Rarely males as you can hunt her as I am in the country. Whitetails and spotted babies.
