| Remember the 80's? priest in their prime, metal in its prime, we go from british steel, to an experimental POE, to screaming and defenders, an experiment with turbo, part of the way back with RID, then a different more metal experiment with painkiller to start the 90's.
thats 7 albums in 11 years, maybe 6 of them good, if you give part scores to POE and RID. (disclamer, I think turbo is ok, but I know I am in the minority here)
If they push out the new album in 2014 thats 3 albums in 10 years, and while I put AOR higher on my list that you, most dont. some like nost, I sure as hell dont. while I hope the new album is their best ever I doubt it, and frankly at the current pace I doubt they can crank one out by 2018 to folow it up. So, I hope they put it all into this album, do something great, and then shut it down. Let Richie go on to something else, scott can work other projects, Glen and Ian can go onto post rocker life, Rob can either resurect the halford band or not. Priest have had a great ride, but after 40 years its over.
