PRIEST!!!!! the GREAT JUDAS PRIEST, and the best vocalist ever ROB HALFORD, like SLAYER, well i own all the SLAYER ALBUMS, but i almost own all the JUDAS PRIEST albums, the only ones i don't have is...

SIN AFTER SIN, DEMOLITION, NOSTRADOMUS, AND JUGALATOR, if that's how the last one is spelled, well you know what i'm talking about, plus it's from the late 80S, 87, if not 89, these men, KK DOWNING, GLENN TIPTON, SCOTT TRAVIS, IAN HILL, and ROB HALFORD, put on an amazing show you can see for yourself pick-up the ELECTRIC EYE DVD, it has vids and a live concert from 86, very theatrical indeed, and they put on a HELL of a show, very classic

To post 7 - Snake - Jugulator is hard to find especially online..but that album is bada$$. You will definitely enjoy it. I listen to it all the way through - it has very dark content..but is cool as hell.
I love the album very much.

Demolition, on the other hand, is not the great. It is the follow-up to Jugulator. You should only get it if you want the entire Judas Priest discography. I still prefer Halford's work with Judas Priest, but "Ripper" Owens did a pretty good job.

For many years I refused to listen to anything Owens did with Priest. I stayed loyal to Halford as I always believed he was the voice of Judas Priest and was gutted when he left the band. Since downloading their discography I have come to realise how foolish I've been. I missed a lot of great music. I'm making up for it now.

Txmetalhead, Demolition has some awesome tracks. One On One, Hell Is Home, Feed On Me...etc.

And to the idiot that hates our country, we don't care. Aussies know what an awesome country we live in. You sound like you have a severe case of cranial rectum insertion. No pill for that.
