Epitaph tour dvd is now
out. I grabbed mine the day it came out. Mostly pretty good, except for towards the end, it appears as though Glenn's
guitar sound wasn't working properly. The band (Rob &
Richie) made an appearance on Bob Coburn's radio show "Rockline" on May 13th. Unfortunately no new details
on any new Priest material. Rob claimed he couldn't discuss it much, other than the fact that there WILL be a new Priest
album. So I would assume the problem is once again Bill and Jayne having the band
by the short hairs as usual. Clips played from the new dvd included Rapid Fire, and Turbo Lover, plus one from Rising
in the East, Living After Midnight. Everything else played was standard studio stuff.
Ok, the Epitaph Tour has
ended. What next for Priest? Will the new cd be out this year or next??
December 7th, 2010.........another date which will live in infamy.
JUDAS PRIEST DROPS A BOMB ON THEIR FANS.
The band has announced that their 2011-2012 world tour will be
their FINAL extensive, world tour
As the creators of a live release that is considered to be one of the all-time
great concert recordings in the realm of heavy metal (1979’s ‘Unleashed in the East’), whenever Judas Priest
announce a new live album, metalheads worldwide instantly take note. And on ‘A Touch of Evil: Live’ (due for release
in July 2009 via Sony Music and Epic Records), the mighty Priest - which includes singer Rob Halford, guitarists Glenn Tipton
and KK Downing, bassist Ian Hill, and drummer Scott Travis - doesn’t disappoint. Focusing primarily on fan-revered album
cuts (all previously unreleased in live form on CD), ‘A Touch of Evil: Live’ features absolutely scintillating
renditions of such Priest gems as “Riding on the Wind,” “Beyond the Realms of Death,” “Dissident
Aggressor,” “A Touch of Evil,” “Eat Me Alive,” and the set-closing “Painkiller.”
Also of note are the first live album appearances of standouts from Priest’s critically acclaimed 2008 concept double
disc, ‘Nostradamus’ (“Death” and “Prophecy”).
Recorded by Martin Walker and Brian
Thorene during the Judas Priest’s mammoth 2005 and 2008 world tours, ‘A Touch of Evil: Live’ also marks
the first Priest album that producer Tom Allom has worked on since 1988 (co-producing along with the band). It was such Allom-produced
albums as the aforementioned ‘Unleashed in the East,’ as well as ‘British Steel’ and ‘Screaming
for Vengeance’ (among others) that made Priest not only one of the premier metal acts, but one of the leading global
rock acts. As heard throughout ‘A Touch of Evil: Live,’ Priest remain a must-see live act…and a must-hear
one, as well.
‘A Touch of Evil: Live’ track listing:
THE HAMMER & THE ANVIL
RIDING ON THE WIND
BEYOND THE REALMS OF DEATH
A TOUCH OF EVIL
EAT ME ALIVE
METAL MASTERS IN SAN BERNADINO, CALIF...
Update - Sun, Aug 30th -
Priest, H&H, Motorhead & Testament just destroyed Glen Helen
pavilion in San Bernadino Sat night!! The sound for all the bands was great.
Motorhead was probably the loudest. When H/H came on, they were not anywhere near as loud as M-head, but later in their
show they did get louder, and Priest, well, loud from start to finish! A formation
of four F-18 Hornets kept circling to the southeast of the place, during Motorhead's set. The place was nearly full by
the time Heaven and Hell took the stage. Awesome stage setup w the gargoyles, etc. "I" and "Heaven and Hell" were probably
the most fun, though the entire show was awesome. I was dead center in Orch 2 about 80 feet back from the stage or so. I think
Priest was even better than when I saw them in 2005! Full of energy and were definitely enjoying themselves. Rob's voice sounded
fine for the most part, though maybe you could say it sounded a little strained on Painkiller, but it's sounded that way for
awhile now. Metal Gods, Eat Me Alive, Another Thing Comin, and Green Manalishi were probably my favorites from the night.
Even Scott seemed to be getting into the show much more than what I've seen in the past, that was great to see, though I still
don't get the "Dave Holland" haircut, lol.
