One of their best albums, one of the best Metal albums ever.

Back in the 70's and early 80's, Judas Priest was one of the best bands in heavy metal.

If you like Judas Priest, this album has what you need musically.

Yes, this 30th anniversary release of SFV is possibly just another ploy for the music companies to extract our hard earned $$$ by remixing/repackaging a CLASSIC like this 1982 Judas Priest release. But don't dismiss it so quickly. The bonus DVD is worth every penny on it's own.

All the guys, but especially Rob Halford are at the top of their game. He hits those high notes and vocal nuances with relative ease, and brings us back to those good ol' metal days. I've seen Rob Halford and the boys recently on HD-NET, and I simply can't bear to watch them now. It makes me cringe to see poor Rob struggle on vocals as his days of engaging the crowd and charismatic on-stage persona have long passed.

Fortunately, this US Festival show (presented in it's entirety, stereo PCM, 4:3 aspect ratio) brings back all the fond and impressive memories and once again reinforces why Judas Priest was one of the top metal bands in the 80's. Their performance is tight, polished yet simplistic and stripped of any fancy stage effects. Basically, it's enjoyably reduced to just 5 guys at the pinnacle of their career doing what they do best. It's hard to believe its been 30 years. Their music still holds up incredibly well. "Classics" in the truest sense. I say buy it. In it there's a fortune waiting to be had, if you let it go - You're mad!

why do record companies have to hard limit and increase volume on cds to make them sound louder.all your doing is destroying the sound.tinny highs,flat bass.dont get me wrong i love this album but im sick of epic and sony destroying sound.i guess they like distorsion and no dynamic range.for the album i give it 5 stars.for sound quality i give it zero.time to get back into vinyl.crisp highs and deep warm bass.

The first Priest song I ever heard was "You've Got Another Thing Comin'" back in 1982 when it came out. Oh, man...what an introduction to Judas Priest!! At this stage, I was going on 15, and just beginning to open my mind and my ears to heavy metal. I had previously just assumed that Judas Priest and Black Sabbath were total noise, without even hearing anything by them; such was my prejudice.

The first time I heard "YGATC," I was quite surprised at how melodic it was, at well as being heavy. It sure didn't sound like noise to me! My mind slowly started opening, and eventually, I bought the album on vinyl. Now that I have SCREAMING FOR VENGEANCE (REMASTERED) on CD, I want to share how I feel about each song on it:
"The Hellion" is a nice slow electric (and instumental) buildup to the fast, smokin' "Electric Eye." Rob Halford growls the song out menacingly, his voice going thru a voice synthesizer for an 'electric' feel. "Ridin' On The Wind" is a total blazing, speed-of-light experience which gets your heart beating FAST; it's the precursor to "Freewheel Burning." Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing trade off Stratocaster leads that are sharp enough to cut through marble. One of Priest's fastest songs ever! "Bloodstone" is THE perfect follow-up to "Ridin' On The Wind." It starts with a great slow, but intricate, electric guitar intro which melds into a catchy groove...and then the bass of Ian Hill and the drums of Dave Holland kick in. It's a great mid-tempo metal tune. "(Take These) Chains" is the one slow song on this album; it's a power ballad that existed even before the term first got into use (with Dokken's "Alone Again"). Written by the talented-yet-much-maligned songwriter Bob Halligan, Jr, it has been unfairly criticized by many Priest fans as being boring and trite.

This is a great Judas Priest record, but the sound quality of the remaster is too loud and overcompressed. The rerelease is a victim of the loudness war. Look for the 1990 CD release. The quality is much better on the original CD release (more dynamics)

This album captures an era in heavy metal before the genre was broken up into sub genres.This was metal the way it used to be before spandex and eyeliner started ruining everything.This album is fantastic.It's not pantywaist pop metal like Ratt and Poison and it's not hardcore thrash like Metallica and Slayer.It's a great example of early 80's metal.Every song is a winner.You won't find a bad song on here.

I have always considered Screaming For Vengeance to be Judas Priest's best recording and showcases the band at the top of their game.The opening instrumental"The Hellion" will hook you right away and it does'nt let go until the end of the album."Electric Eye" is always an instant classic."You've Got Another Thing Comin" was a huge radio hit.The title track just plain rocks along with "Devil's Child".Another one that stood out was "Fever" because I liked the way it started slow and built up steam."Riding On the Wind" was great because of the famous drum roll at the beginning and "Bloodstone" has those Black Sabbath like evil guitar riffs at the beginning of the song and was my favorite on here.Rob Halford gives his best vocal performance on this album as well.

This album is an enduring classic for all time and has really stood the test of time since its 1982 release.The last great Judas Priest recording at least for a while.No synths,no electric drum kits,no power ballads,just good old fashioned old school traditional heavy metal the way it was intended to be.Every 80's metal fan should own this album.If you don't have it,get it today!!
