Hello everyone. It's been awhile. No negativity just a quick comment.
I went to the Youngstown show. It's a totally different sounding Priest now. Great musicians just different. Rob is sounding great though. I planned a second show so don't take that wrong.
After multiple listens dare I say I think this may now be my favorite judas Priest album. Thank goodness for Tom Allom and Andy Sneap. This is the first album by Priest that I actually like every song. I really didn't think Priest was capable of a release this good. I bought a signed limited edition(500) Red/black swirl lp that came with a disc and digital download. The second lp is yellow/black swirl. They look really cool. I'd post a pic but I forget how here.
I probably won't bother you fine folks again for awhile. Can't wait for Detroit. Peace!

| Priest # 1 through 10 throughout the world,low ticket warnings and then sold out shows, I am feeling a lot better about The boys extending their tour dates to other parts of the world!!! But especially western Canada where at least a couple of members are from!!!, loving Spectre, I am gettinga homage to The Ripper and Nightcrawler from that song as well as lots of others from their past albums, hear more every listen, only been about 6 times!! As Acolyte |

| What a great show, Priest was right on the money, I think this show was better than Epitaph. Kids saw the mighty Priest and really enjoyed them, Halford was energetic and they pulled out Saints in Hell as well as few others I was surprised about. If you get the chance you better go, Saxon was good too they got the crowd fired up for Priest.|

|Just lyrics and some artwork with five symbols (representing each member of the band, I guess). No photos of the band at all.|

|Hello everybody, wanted to let you know that tomorrow I will be watching the Priest for probably the last time . Taking the entire family to see them in Youngstown, Ohio. My kids are all excited as am I, this is their first concert and I'm sure it will be a good one. |

| Hi everyone, glad to see a number of folks still here!!|
I've listened to this release about 10 -12 times now and I LOVE IT!!
Every time I give it a listen I hear something new, something I didn't catch prior. As far as I'm concerned FIREPOWER is the as good as anything they've put out to this point. If this is their last studio effort, I'm happy!!
I don't care too much about what the bands' rumbling on about, that's on them. From a pure entainment point of view, this is the album I've been waiting for since SFV (PAINKILLER not withstanding).
Not here to blow too much hot air, just wanted to share my thoughts.

| I was finally able to get my hands on the firepower album and it's amazing! I'd dare say it's their best album in the last 20 years or so. It evidenciates a totally new and creative sound going beyond what we got used to. If Redeemer was a great comeback after nostradamus, this one definitely shows that they managed to reach almost perfect. I'm very happy to see my favorite band going up in quality and not being held back by all the negative crap we unloaded after nostradamus came out and after KK announced his quitting the band. I really thank them for showing us that they still got a lot to give, and even when Glenn's sad news hit us a little bit pre-release, this shows how much he loved creating this powerful beast that is priest and that is roooooaaaarrriiinnng heavy metal!!!|
I'm so excited!!!
Take that KK, enjoy your retirement!! I admire and appreciate what he did with priest but I don't think they'd have created this monster with him still on board

New album is fantastic!
What a difference in the audio quality compared to Redeemer.
Not a fan of flamethrower, something odd about that song but otherwise the album is just solid.
Special shoutout to Guardians/Rising from Ruins and No Surrender!

|Huh. So THAT is it, eh? No CD? Dang. Would have been nice to know beforehand but I doubt I would have changed anything.|
Album is just freakin' AWESOME! I was up until 6am with it in my ears. Downloaded (nice that you got YOURS so fast, btw!) while waiting for packages to arrive.

|Turns out the "deluxe" version of Firepower is in fact a digipak. Despite the expanded booklet, there unfortunately is no liner notes, just the song lyrics, album credits and some additional artwork. This is the scene in my room right now:|
Oh, the album is fucking awesome btw!
