$14 bucks a cd to have "spares " , not a bad price really , I certainly don't want to think of it as $165 for 1 CD lol !!! neat package and looks to include Robs autograph
[guidogodoy] Tuesday, April 04, 2017 8:54:58 PM 
Man, I do have my fingers crossed that it arrives intact and await word. Still dealing with "One Live Media" to remedy that smashed as hell Glenn CD. Let's see if they come through and can only hope that they do right by you. That is some coin.

Best get the "Special Ed" of Mutations at least and I would HOPE with something else. Rob's autograph? Heck, John 5 (still makes me laugh that the resident idiots here didn't even know that he was the guitarist for Rob in the band 2wo!) is on tour with a VIP for $100 + ticket price. At least a non-dented box?? Here's hopin' In the meantime, I'll spin Mutations to send good vibes....

[guidogodoy] Wednesday, March 29, 2017 6:55:56 PM 
Ah, yes. That it was. Just now looking for my copy of Mutations? I came across several copies of the promo of "Winter Songs." Not surprising as I knew I had them given free with several purchases. What I had forgotten? "Crucible." Remixed and remastered version. Like the many copies of the promo of Winter Songs....still in its shrink-wrap....

Mutations was for a while available on as a free download, along with a couple of concerts.

I grabbed that to replace the copy I lost somehow.

this looks too rich for me.
[guidogodoy] Wednesday, March 29, 2017 8:07:53 AM 
Why, understood, of course. I also want to read a full report upon delivery. Dented corners? Baxter's autograph?

Now, I wonder...being that it is just a Halford deal, WILL the JP BOYS get any of the dinero? My Magic 8-Ball says "chances are not good."

[guidogodoy] Tuesday, March 28, 2017 8:26:21 PM 
Wow! Good for Rob but my BIG "wow" is sticker shock! $120 + at least $11+ shipping? Over $130USD for albums any diehard would HAVE and any casual listener wouldn't want. I actually felt "burned" in the last Priest box-set as I got it for the unreleased material but the box itself was damaged. Exactly the same comment I read again and again from others here and elsewhere. Square box with small bubble-wrap pushed into a wimpy padded envelope + expensive USPS mail = dented corners to the box! Same JUST happened to the Glenn CD. Had them both but went for it as they were autographed. Turned out to be ONE CD case with the slightest amount of bubble-wrap in a small padded envelope. Arrived flat as a pancake. Jewel case in PIECES!!

Well, no diss on the BAND, of course. Glenn and the solo? Heck, $ went to charity? Fine. One Live Media, though?! Glad to read that both the link here and what you posted on FB go to AMAZON! At least they seem to know how to take care of business.

Now were there to be a little more info? Some bonus material? Seems to have Rob's autograph in there but is that for show? Heck, how about BAXTER's autograph!

Yeah, kind of a weird setup they've got. They're just BARELY covering the southern half of the country with TX and FL, and I doubt that this tour'll get any bigger than that, so...plan to drive to PA, I suppose.

As for no state after Los Angeles? Pssshhhh.......Los Angeles is KING entertainment-wise. It don't need no stinking state abbreviation written next to it! Now bow down, you fools!

Hmmmmm....well, still pretty "crazy" pairing and TOUR if you ask me. "Jumpy." Like how the "Christianity" aspect plays into it in that they skip the Bible Belt! Not that they would be the big fan-base anyway but missing majors in the "rust belt?" Kinda odd. Also, why is it that "Los Angeles" is the only city without a state listed?!? Prejudice, I say! What, like they are going to play Denver, MO? Perhaps Dallas, WV?

I only assume there IS one...

@vail.... I've always hated Megadeth but at least thier mind set in 1985 "WAS" thrash but today? They pee sitting down.

Doesn't make any sense to me that they try and be thrash...multi millionaires like Metallica as well trying to play thrash,especially nowadays Dave Mustard & Bass guitarist Dave E. being heavily involved with Christianity. No offense to christians on the board here of course but you know what I'm getting at.

Thrash belongs underground being played by artists who are pissed off singing about subjects that usually are not accepted by people with christian beliefs and that are not rich.

The scene - fanbase of metalheads in the early to mid 80's were probably over 90% non christians.
It's like death and black metal's just the way it is.
[Vaillant 3.0] Tuesday, March 21, 2017 8:53:54 PM 
Yeah, I suppose I'll get a show (they're calling it a tour, so...who knows, maybe they'll tour Canada!). It's just so weird! These two bands are on opposite ends of the "heavy" spectrum!!! On the one hand we have hard/glam-ish rock, and on the other we have thrash metal!! The latter usually has the former for breakfast!! What I'm wondering here is, "Who's gonna open for whom?!?" Scorps are saying that Megadeth are the special guests, Megadeth opening???

Now don't get me wrong. I've been wanting to see both bands for the longest time. But on the same bill??.................................................well, okay. Why not. I'm sure it'll work out somehow.

[J.D. DIAMOND] Sunday, March 19, 2017 2:43:11 PM 
Yeah Joacim Canns's voice is the BEST vocalist next to Rob Halford. His vocals are even better than old Bruce Dickinson. Just 100% supurb.

Glory To The Brave
Legacy Of Kings
Crimson Thunder
Chapter V: Unbent,Unbowed,Unbroken
No Sacrifice,No Victory

8 studio albums should be in every heavy metal fan's
collection. They are mentioned in Power Metal alot,but
really they just are traditional British heavy metal style
with definately thier own style.

Yeah thier new album Built To Last I'm just not a fan of
but they'll be back in a few years with a masterpiece I'm sure.

Crimson Thunder I think is thier best record.

@acolytee55... Yes Im a huge Hammerfall fan! I got into them in 2011,and to me they are the 3rd best heavy metal band well,at least in this era...Judas Priest,Saxon and Hammerfall to me are the top of the crop . I do not like thier new album Built To Last though,or 2011 Infected. But all other HF albums fucking rule! Legacy Of Kings is excellent!

Fuck I HATE fucktards who are in popular bands talking shit like they know what thier talking about. If Judas Priest isnt a "metal band" then Rob is not gay.

And yes I just read too on blabbermouth that Priest have Tom Allom & Andy Sneap to produce this next album!!! Holy fuck Andy Sneap just produced Saxon's Battering Ram and the sound is amazing,just perfect. I have a funny feeling this new album is gonna top Redeemer Of Souls. I really do...Im stoked!!!

Does anyone remember James Durbin? The guy who sang Judas Priest on American Idol in 2011 which led to the first public appearance of Richie Faulkner as a member of Priest?

Well, he was just recently signed as the lead singer of Quiet Riot (yeah they're still going, led by drummer Frankie Banali).
[Vaillant 3.0] Wednesday, March 08, 2017 10:53:24 PM

Right you are. Looked it up myself. Same as "Battle Cry" has co-credits on it. "Angel of Retribution" as well with Roy Z and co. taken from Halford's solo days. Really, Tom Allom was the only constant throughout the career there in terms of production and mixing without Glenn who, I am sure, was always there along with others in the band whether credited or not. As for arguments? While good to have facts and ammo to back them up, I have honestly never heard any! Can't remember reading any for that matter. Just like when Rob goes on record to defend himself against supposed attacks on Blabbermouth or Richie for having done American Idol? Hell, missed people bitching about those too! 

Maybe I am reading the wrong news. Perhaps the Bieber website fans need to be a little more diverse in their musical tastes and criticisms. I'll tell them the next time I stop by! :)

@guido... Well my cd at least is just the 13 tracks original album bought it same day released only has one place in the booklet where it says produced & mixed by Mike Exeter & Glenn Tipton. Recorded and mixed in the UK. Mastered by Dick Beetham at 360 Mastering.

Yet GLENN is shit on. I like the RAW aspect of the ROS album. It still would be just as cool with a better production,but doesn't need it. It makes Redeemer Of Souls stand out on its own atmosphere.

So Mike Exeter produced & mixed the Redeemer Of Souls album equally with Glenn as far as what it says. Dick Beetham mastered the entire album himself at 360 Mastering.

As far as we know it's between the 3 of them. That must mean that approx. there is a 33.3% chance Glenn is at fault with the production final sound,and approx a 66.6% chance Glenn is not responsible for the final sound yet he has been blamed!!

guido...for the last 2 1/2 years I've wondered this. 66.6% chance Glenn is not at fault....something you can throw at someone who just blames him 100% his fault.

You also know I have never had a problem with the production of ROS. Didn't know that bit about Exeter so that is news to me, can't say that I am a huge fan of Tipton being producer as I really do think that a good deal of that "critical ear" was lost in having him take over that responsability as well but, heck, James Guthrie did "Stained Class" which was a breakthrough for Priest back in the day when nobody really CARED who produced the album. Only reason I know it is because of the famous "subliminal messages" trial with the backmasking and all. Hell, HIS big claim to fame as a producer was with Pink Floyd and Roger Waters!

Tom Allom should get the nod as the true "producer" of Priest albums if anyone should as he was there from Pre-Steel (Unleashed) to "Touch of Evil Live" if I am not mistaken. Last wins them the (bahhhhahahaaaa..."coveted") Grammy.

I didn't even notice ROS which, for me, is good enough! I DID notice that Nostra was too long. Overall? I still liked it. However, perhaps that is where a critical ear could have said "cut it down!" In the end, though, that is what the skip button and equalizers are made for if someone doesn't like a mix, IMO. In today's day and age? Just redo it! Heck, if someone can take Jar Jar out of a Star Wars movie, it is a FAR easier task to remix and reburn a CD. Me? I am leaving mine just the way they are with the new info about Exeter now for my own info.

You [email protected] guido,acolytee55,Vail...credits on the Redeemer Of Souls says the album was produced by MIKE EXETER & Glenn Tipton.

I think ROS production isnt as bad as many make it out to be.

Yet I have NEVER read 1 fucking bad word about Mike Exeter ?

It's all bitching about how Glenn should stay away from the production,blah blah blah...

How do they know it was GLENN who is ultimately responsible for the final sound? How do they it's not Mike Exeter who is the real reason behind the under par production?

They simply DON'T. They do not. I remember reading recently an article on Blabbermouth about Metallica's 1988 AJFA album and how for YEARS people complaining about the lack of the BASS sound on the album which was Jason Newsteads debut and blaming it on the producer (I cant remember his name off hand) but the producer said he got bashed for years for this... He said it WASN'T HIM who made the bass so non existant,it was LARS who demanded the bass be so low even though the producer thought he was crazy.

The producer said recently that this subject came up and Lars asked him why the bass was so low barely non existent,and he told Lars it was HIM lol

So for all we know it could have been Mike Exeter for the over all production sound,I mean sure it could be Glenn too,but we have to take consideration that Mike Exetor could be at fault,yet not one fucking comment about the production has his name mentioned? Not fair.
