Yeah for me I've never even liked Accept but I do think they are a worthy heavy metal band/some songs at least but man that Blood Of Nations album with the new singer sounds better than the old Accept,actually to me its the best Accept album there is!
However about Priest,yeah I'd be fibbing if I said I wasn't nervous about this next album without K.K., I am glad K.K. is gone because K.K. himself doesn't want to be in Priest so yeah its a good thing he aint here and I think Richie is the perfect fit I really do and not just saying that either,Richie is definately a true member of Judas Priest tons more so than Ripper in my opinion.
But yeah I'm a little nervous about an album without K.K. The only thing is that this new album can't be worse than Nostradamus,it just can't even without K.K. If the LP turns out equal to Angel Of Retribution (in our opinion because I know you actually like A.O.R. like I do guido) than it will be awsome.
I too hated it when Ripper changed some lyrics ect...yeah that sucked balls. Ripper turned Priest into a band like Disturbed or Godsmack and nothing against these bands I'm just making a comparison,Ripper's image on the Demolition tour was unacceptable and I was shocked that Glenn and Ken allowed it,like on the Live In London DVD he looks like a 4th member of The Beastie Boys.
Richie doesn't bring that "nu" metal to Priest,he seems more old school if anything. Lets just hope the new "songs" on the new Priest album are kick ass,thats where it will count as you know. Actually,we don't really differ that much at all on the subject Guido.

See, and there is where we both agree and differ. I also don't like the Ripper-era albums because I just don't like them. Indeed, I have heard them, tried to give them a chance but just thought that the songs were bad. I can't stand Ripper's voice and, even worse, when he changes the traditional lyrics of some songs to give it his own touch. It is bloody awful.
Maybe it is just me but I don't equate a drummer with a lead singer. Just not the same ballpark. When Dave left Van Halen, I felt the same. Change the damn name to Van Hagar! Nothing against the great talent of the rest of the guys but it just wasn't the same without Diamond Dave.
That said, I do like Turbo and Nostra. Granted, I never bought Turbo on CD so that shows my ranking of it. Then again, I just blew the big bucks on the Singles and do own Metalogy AND the cassette. Same goes for Ram it Down.
All this begs the question about a JP album without KK. While I do have my reservations, I will certainly give it a try just as I did with the Ripper albums. However, I think that the album will have a better chance with Rob than would an album with Ripper. Same thoughts about Iced Earth with Ripper, BTW, as I have stated before.
So far, one of the VERY few bands I like that went from a mega-singer to someone new was Accept - Blood of the Nations.

I see your point,but .....man Jugulator and Demolition are just boring albums to me and I don't own either one of them. I don't own Turbo,Jugulator,Demolition or Nostradamus and never will own them.
