AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..............*clears throat*..........AAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!

God I've been waiting for this forever. 2014 is gonna be a year which we get another sermon from the almighty Priest. It won't be the same without K.K. but at least the core is still there, and I'm sure it'll be an album worth checking out. Even Nostradamus had a good amount of songs worth listening too. Visions, Prophecy, the title track, etc. I'm excited if you couldn't tell lol.

Definitely looking forward to new Priest material. Nostadamus was a tough one to get through. Hopefully we get a classic sounding Priest album. And one more US tour would be awesome. Band ranks pretty high on my all-time favorite list.

Sorry but Nostradamus just wasn't very good . Angel of Retribution was a much better sound.

For any die-hard Priest fan it's obvious that Nostradamus was a little hard to get through. Like I said, it had a good amount of songs, but overall it wasn't their best. If they had cut out most of the filler/intro tracks, maybe things would've been different. Angel Of Retribution was a great album, and a proper comeback. I'm hoping for something that can follow up that album, because besides Painkiller, Retribution was my favorite Priest record. I'm worried about what their new guitarist will bring to the table, but I'm sure it won't be disappointing.......please don't be disappointing lol.
No matter what, this band is at the top of the list of my all time favorite bands and they always will be.

sad thing halford can barely make it up on a stage physically.
not many frontmen can rock it pass the age of 50 and robs not on that list.
A good band before.

These guys are to old. After a band has been around for 10 years they tend to lose all creativity and style. Just look at Mastodon. They were really good until they released the Hunter. Judas Preist has been around for much longer than 10 years and it shows in their crappy new music.

Admittedly priest live are not what they were 30 years ago..but they are still capable of writing/recording and releasing solid music. I am looking forward to the new album.

Lets hope maiden will head back into the studio in 2014

9, 10, and 11 most not have seen the Judas Priest that I have. They've killed both shows I went to, especially the 30th anniversary British Steel show. That was awesome. It's true that Halford can't hit certain notes as well anymore, but honestly, he was singing Painkiller weird even in the 90's when they toured the CD. But when they do a song like Victim Of Change, it's almost better live than on record. This band's definitely stood the test of time for a lot of people. Defenders Of The Faith!
