|THANKS GUYS!! This is truly a pleasure to listen to! YOU GUYS ROCK!! I love the fact that you stayed true to the songs... unlike all the other tribute albums of Priest I've heard. This is a FANTASTIC tribute to the band that we all love! |
Thanks Freeze for getting me a copy. Too bad you left it in the hotel and had to mail it to me anyway.... but I really appreciate your getting it to me. By the way..... I consider it a MESSENGER bag, and if Keifer Sutherland is still cool after carrying one in 24, then I rest my case!

|Well gang, I believe that the time has come at last. I have filled all the orders, read the reviews and done all that can be done. As far as I can see, this Thread has served a wonderful purpose and now it should be laid to rest. Of course, it is really MM that will make that decision but, as for me, there is nothing more to do.|
What a wonderful ride, no? Not sure how many of you were here on the very first day MM posted this Thread but, OH what a wonderful ride!! So many GREAT memories. Laughs. Tears. Ups. Downs. We had it all in this one. There is not much more that can be said!
My sincere thanks to MetalMeltdown AND our missing friend maiden/preist6666 for starting what turned out to be a truly special time in my life. All the fond memories are gifts that I will treasure. We had some really fun times and I cannot stress enough that it was all worth it. We have made some music that will live on and have brought together many countries, much in the same way Priest has done for over 30 years!!!!! I feel truly blessed to have been a part of this thing and all that has transpired as a direct result!!
Thanks to the membership of this Board for all the support over the years! YOU all are what made this happen and why it was so successful! Without you, there would never have been a Faithful Defenders! I sincerely mean that! Thank you all.

|A MESSAGE TO ALL|
I need to know if there is anyone who has not yet received their copy of the new CD?? I am talking about those of you that have e-mailed me and requested a copy. Is there anyone I missed??? Please remember I am an old man and I do tend to be somewhat forgetful. I want to be sure that there is no one waiting for something I have yet to mail!!! Just PM me if you have not received yours.
|[Deep Freeze] Friday, July 10, 2009 11:15:58 AM|| |
|Ladies, my most sincere thanks to you for the kind words! They are much appreciated. It really makes all the effort worth it. It is tremendously satisfying to hear such enthusiastic support from the membership. I am sure Metallark and MM agree. We love you all and we thank you for all your kindness!!!!!|

|I just received Raw Steel yesterday, but gave it a spin this afternoon. Here's my small review:|
In short, it's an awesome first album by the Faithful Defenders!!! Good job to all those involved!!!!
I gotta admit that this album was full of surprises. It came plain (no album cover), but I didn't mind. It's the contents in the CD that's important, darn it!! I was literally at the edge of my seat in between songs, wondering what the next one might be (mainly because the CD case didn't come with a tracklist, either. HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!).
I noticed that DF's voice has alot more 'growl' in this one. Not only that, but he hit some pretty high notes, especially in Tyrant and Beyond the Realms of Death, which took me by surprise. Just like the second FD album, the band took the songs and gave them their own little style. Again, MM does a great job with playing the guitar solos and also in improvising. He only got better with Forged Steel!! Thumbs up to you, MM!!!
In general, the great talent that shows up in this one is, as the title of the album quite nicely says: Raw!!! It all matures very well in the second album. Whoever does not have the first one already, get it (or ask DF). It's a must-have!!!!!
I also admit that the first track scared me for the first few seconds because I couldn't for the life of me figure out which JP song it was from. After about 30 seconds, I realize something: it's an instrumental (oops!). The song is cool, by the way. It's got a Halloween-ish tone to it! As far as the rest of the album goes, my favorites are Heading Out to the Highway, Tyrant, Worth Fighting For (very hypnotic, really), and Hell Bent for Leather.
And that's my small (I think?) review of the first Faithful Defenders album. I had a great time listening to it twice and I can't wait to give it a few thousand more spins. Thanks and once again, great job Faithful Defenders!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Forged Steel is with me finally!!! Here are my impressions: The very moment I received the package I felt so part of the Judas Priest Community Forum. I loved having my online name written on it!
I second everyone here. You`ve done a wonderful job! Excellent tracklist choice. You all sound awesome. Strong vocals Freeze! It`s so pleasant and energizing to listen to talented musicians playing and singing these tracks we love so much! Forged Steel is an excellent tribute album done with love, dedication and respect to our beloved Metal Gods! I applaud you! My favourite tracks are Judas Rising (impressive start), Between The Hammer and The Anvil, Eat Me Alive, Jawbreaker. I also like the original "Forever Young", awesome.
Thanks for the CD Freeze! I`ll play it loud so that my whole country can hear! I`m already sharing your music with my friends and they are all impressed!
Guido! beautiful artwork! Congratulations. The CD looks gorgeous with all my Priest Cds.
Thanks Deep Freeze, Metal Meltdown, Metallark and everyone involved in this wonderful project.
You Rock Faithful Defenders!!!

ONE friggin job??!?!?!?!!!?? ONE FRIGGIN JOB???? Look wise guy, do you realize I had to go out, buy the right jewel cases, put these all together, find packaging, get mailing addresses, label all the packages, keep records on all the shipments....one job!! Pffff! That right there is more than I do in a MONTH!!!!!!
Keep in mind that we will be living together for a week very shortly...Now then, proper genuflection is in order. Oh , and for the record, all the CDs were placed in the "upright" position! Hitch-hiking, indeed..... HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

|DAMN, Freeze! You only had one friggin' job to do with post-production. Bend and put the tray inserts in the right way...not upside-down!!! To quote Charlie Brown: "aaaarrgh!" (football being snapped away!). HAAAAA!!! I bet he didn't even put the nice printed CD in upright, did he? Come on. Someone who received an end-product tell the truth....|
Thanks for the kind words, all. Freeze is hitch-hiking from DTW Airport now though.

|I mostly need to learn how to master Adobe, which I never use because no one at my building uses it, but the boss in OH is very into Adobe and sending PDF files via emial. I wondering if the home office has an Adobe sight set up already, that would make his requests much easier, if I had access to that account. |

|HAA! Spoken like someone who knows: "long, drawn-out pain in the ass" is a perfect summary! |
As for a good pdf text? Sorry. While I am sure I could help you with most questions, I don't recommend a single one. Info changes too quickly to invest in a book. Stick to online sources for any tech info.
