Screaming For Vengeance - Special 30th Anniversary sizzle reel


There are few heavy metal bands that have managed to scale the heights that Judas Priest have during their nearly 40 year career. Their presence and influence remains at an all-time high as evidenced by 2008's 'Nostradamus' being the highest-charting album of their career, a 2010 Grammy Award win for 'Best Metal Performance', being a VH1 Rock Honors recipient, and playing ...

Format:Audio CD
Judas Priest's compilation album entitled The Essential Judas Priest (first released as a 2-CD retrospective covering the classic heavy metal band's 1976-2005 career in 2006) was re-released in 2008 as an economically priced 3-CD set.
Judas Priest weren't just called the Metal Gods for nothing. For decades, the core of Judas Priest which are guitarists KK Downing and Glenn Tipton, bass player Ian Hill and lead singer Rob Halford and the cast of drummers have successfully defended the faith of metal!
The Essential Judas Priest contains forty-one (count them 41) tracks overall. Released by Columbia Records, the set covers the band's Rob Halford years from 1976-1990 and reunion in 2005. It covers tracks from twelve of the band's fifteen studio albums released over the years.
The band's 1974 debut Rocka Rolla was not covered though some would have wanted its title cut here.
The band's sophomore effort 1976's Sad Wings of Destiny is represented by the classics and finally properly remastered versions of the studio recording of "Victim Of Changes" and "The Ripper". Whilst the album, like its predecessor was on Ovation Records (a long out of print label here in the US), didn't sell well upon release it did find the band's sound that it would adopt for the rest of its career.
The band's third album (their first for CBS/Sony affiliate Columbia) 1977's Sin After Sin (which saw the addition of powehouse drummer Simon Phillips (who would work with Genesis guitarist Mike Rutherford on his Smallcreep's Day album and with Pete Townshend and The Who and later Toto in his career)) is represented by "Diamonds And Rust", "Sinner" and "Diisident Aggressor" (which was left off of the 2-CD edition for time constraints but is on disc 3).

3.0 out of 5 stars A reason for some quick cash... March 14, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this set about a year ago and most of the Priest's best stuff is on it. Now, it is rereleased with a third disc. Why? Well, money of course, because of the die hard fans out there that will buy anything that an artist puts out, regardless of what it is. KISS now makes a living at this. The reason I bought this set in the first place is because all of my Priest stuff from the 70's and some of the 80's is on cassette and I wanted to hear the Priest with better sound quality, and I was not disappointed. The problem I have with this set is that the third disc only has seven songs on it. Come on, guys! You have so much awesome material, this could easily have been another full cd. Needless to say, I am not interested in buying this set. If it had been another full disc and depending on the track listing, especially if maybe some b-sides and rarities were included, which would be a real treat for the fans, I probably would. Some better thought should gone into this. Regardless, Priest is still one of the greatest Metal bands of all time!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD Rocks! July 9, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having been an avid collector of Judas Priest cassettes, I was looking for a CD that would include all of my favorite Priest tunes without breaking the bank. This CD has all of the hits from the band's earlier albums, as well as the hits off of Screaming for Vengeance and beyond. Judas Priest 3.0 includes three discs with a total of 41 songs at a price that can't be beat. I strongly recommend this CD for any older metal head that wants to revisit their head banging years. An awesome collection to say the least.
