CLASSIC JUDAS PRIEST METAL ON THE WAY WITH THEIR 17TH ALBUM 'REDEEMER OF SOULS'

There are only a select number of bands that have accomplished what Judas Priest has throughout their career (as well as having served as a stylistic influence on such a wide variety of bands). Soon the group - singer Rob Halford, guitarists Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner, bassist Ian Hill and drummer Scott Travis - will be offering up more classic Judas Priest metal with the release of 'Redeemer of Souls'

To be released in the US on July 15th, 2014 via Epic Records (as a standard version and a deluxe edition with five bonus tracks), 'Redeemer of Souls' is Judas Priest's latest collection of epic metal - "raising the bar is consistent for us and 'Redeemer' hits the ground running" - it matches up perfectly to earlier Priest classics as evidenced by the album's leadoff single 'March of the Damned'
("we are forging ahead, slamming the pedal to the metal!") - the band mean business once again.

"We feel 'Redeemer of Souls' reinforces our passion for what we believe in from the Judas Priest style heavy metal." The album also marks Richie Faulkner's studio debut with Priest and is the co-writer of the material along with Glenn Tipton and Rob Halford.

First bursting onto the scene with 1974's 'Rocka Rolla' Judas Priest is responsible for some of heavy metal's all-time great albums - 1980's 'British Steel', 1982's 'Screaming for Vengeance', 1990's 'Painkiller' etc - and anthems 'Breaking the Law', 'Living After Midnight', 'You've Got Another Thing Coming' etc - as well as trailblazing metal's now instantly identifiable look - leather and studs - 2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the band.

And while fans are undoubtedly starved for more Priest (their last studio album 'Nostradamus' was released in 2008) the band themselves are eager for the world to hear their latest studio triumph. "Classic combination of all the statements we love to create with raging guitar riffs and solos, thundering drums, thick grooves of bass and vocals tearing it all up!"

Format: Audio CD
With a band lke Judas Priest, you're going to find a plethora of song-by-song breakdowns, so I won't get into Track 1, Track 2, etc., etc. "Redeemer" is a worthy Priest album, especially for a band with members as old as they are. Yeah, I know, they have Richie, the new young gun, but Halford, Tipton, and co. are no spring chickens. Sort of like with Sabbath, I'm not expecting or looking for a new all-time classic, I just want good tracks that remind me of the older music while not sounding like a rehash. When you're talking about a band with tons of albums, it's hard not to say, 'Oh, they've used that riff or that vocal melody before,' but most artists recycle ideas eventually. As long as it's not self-plagiarism, I'm happy, and I don't believe that's going on with "Redeemer." The album has a nice mix of hard-edged heavy metal, lighter and more melodic material, and heavy rock. Halford sounds pretty good; he may not have the pipes of old, but the "Metal God" can still get it done. Plenty of hooks and plenty of heart. On guitar, the new guy sounds incredible, so that's a plus.

The only real gripe here for me is the production. It really sounds thin, and when the band put some of the first songs from the album online, I hoped they were in pre-production and not finished. Alas, as with just about every new release nowadays, the sound just isn't as full and natural-sounding as the music we got in the '80's and '90's. I'm no audiophile, but to even the general listening ear, most metal albums just don't sound as bombastic and epic as they used to. It's a shame, too, because bands like Priest, Metallica, Sabbath, and even Slayer would greatly benefit from better production. I'm happy to have some new Priest, I just wish the overall sound did them justice.

This is a review for the deluxe edition of the album, and I would suggest that everyone buys the deluxe version, it is definitely worth it for the bonus tracks.

Let me begin this review by stating that this is the best Judas Priest record since 'Painkiller'. The one small gripe that stops it from getting a perfect score from me is the shoddy production that muffles Scott Travis' double bass (especially noticeable on the song 'Metalizer'). However, when playing the physical CD copy of the album on a good stereo system, the production isn't bad enough to disrupt the listening experience.

To the performance of each individual on this album;

Rob Halford:

Despite what some would have you believe, Rob's vocals are not weak on this album. In fact, for mine he is simply nailing his mid range vocals and, thankfully, he sticks to this mid range for much of the record.

His highs on this record are hit and miss, from great on 'Halls of Valhalla' to not-so-great on 'Metalizer' and with “Battle Cry' we get a bit of both. Luckily, he keeps the shrieking to a minimum on this record and it really helps his performance.

For a singer on the north side of 60, his performance is stellar.

Glenn Tipton:

Unfortunately, age seems to be catching up with Mr. Tipton. Fortunately for us, he seems wise enough to realize this and leaves most of the soloing to the newcomer in the axe department. Still, at 67, one can live with a sloppy solo or two from the great man. His performance on the album, while not the greatness of yesteryear, is serviceable.

Richie Faulkner:

And so we come to the star of this show. Without a doubt, this man is the breath of fresh air Priest needed to revitalize themselves.

I find it funny when I read interviews with the older Priest band members and they say things like, "We're trying to do something that the kids will like this round." Most of the "kids" that will purchase a physical copy of their newest album are probably like me...in their 40's or even 50's! I first got into JUDAS PRIEST around 1984, with the DEFENDERS OF THE FAITH album and have followed Priest and Halford relentlessly ever since. They are among my top 5 favorite bands of all time, if not Number One. I don't claim to be an 'expert' on any of this, I just know what I like to listen to and have followed Halford [and his other solo projects] and Priest forever. I'm among the few that enjoyed the Ripper Owens era of Priest, and still count JUGULATOR among one of their great works!

Anyway, this is a review of REDEEMER OF SOULS, and I've taken the week to "absorb" the new material. And with the Deluxe Edition, there's A LOT here! Not sure how long it is, but I'm thinking around the 80 minute mark for material, and this is no concept album like NOSTRADAMUS. While I enjoyed Priest's last album, the epic NOSTRADAMUS, it's one that has to be listened to from start to finish, really, like watching a movie, and you have to be in that concept/narrative mood.

REDEEMER OF SOULS is classic Priest, all around, as you've probably read. To compare it to previous Priest/Halford releases this soon is difficult for me, because as I mentioned...it takes time to absorb the new material, grasp the lyrics, and feel the energy behind each track. My favorite Halford/Priest releases have to be PAINKILLER and the FIGHT-WAR OF WORDS efforts. Both those albums I still play regularly, at least a couple times a month.

Warning: VERY compressed audio
I guess music is joining the rest of our culture. Is there ANYTHING that isn't being dumbed down? ANYTHING that is increasing in sophistication?

Does Europe get release versions that aren't compressed?
