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.

Forget all the negative stuff you have ever read about this album. This is the most commercially successful Priest album ever. 30 years later it still holds it's own. This album stands, like a sentry, at the gates of metal's golden era. When this first came out the local hard rock radio stations played this entire album, which was very unusual. The number of colossal cuts on here start with The Helion/Electric Eye, followed by Riding On The Wind, Devils Child and You've Got Another Thing Commin', which got major air time on every rock station. The rest of this release is also very good. If you like metal, you simply must own this piece of history.

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.

Great Album
Every song is good including the instrumental intro
Hellion - Instrumental and the guitars sound phenominal(if that's how you spell it)
Electric Eye - Great Song; sounds futuristic; lyrics are funny.
Riding the Wind - Ehhh. It's good. It sounds like Dio's song "Gypsy", but Priest made it first. Altough Dio's Gypsy sounds better.
Bloodstone - Good song; Not the best song, but not the worst.
Chains - Great song; "TAKE THESE CHAINS OFF! Take them off of my heart." His voice sounds like Ozzy in the chorus.
Pain & Pleasure - "She brings me.....PAIN!!!...but she gives me pleasure, don't know what I like." Good song; slow, but very good.
Screaming for Vengeance - Very active; Halford screams into the mic in the beginning of the song and off we go to another rocking song by Judas Priest.
Another Thing Coming - A memorable hit; Probably the best song on this CD.
Fever - One of the best songs on this track; It gets stuck in your head very easily.
Devil's Child - Another great song; In this song, Rob Halford sings about his encounter with me.
Bonus Tracks:
Prisoner of Your Eyes - Very melodic; Nicely done; Sad, but beautiful; This is probably my favorite song on the whole CD.
Devil's Child (Live) - Same thing with Rob's encounter with Yours Truly. This time it's live which makes it more exciting and his voice doesn't EXACTLY go like it does in track 10.

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!!
