I thought it was fantastic. Brutal and in your face. KK's playing was stellar and Ripper just blew it all out. Hellfire Thunderbolt was fantastic. More Judas than Judas.

Totally agree. This is what Priest has been missing. And I'll take Ripper over Mr. High Heels and chaps any day.

Gotta pile on positive here ^^^ this is better than anything Priest has done since Halford came back, but then that's to be expected since Owens is the better singer.

And no, I'm not saying that to just be contrary, Tim combines the range of Halford in his prime with the heavy vocal weight and distortion of Dio.

Might have to actually buy this.

I'm quite surprised by some of the comments to be honest. This is a good song, no argument there, but I'd put Firepower up there with the best Priest albums. Plus this song isn't drastically different from anything else that Ripper has done since leaving Iced Earth (Spirits Of Fire, Three Tremors, Beyond Fear) etc. and they didn't seem to get much attention (which is a shame because the Spirits Of Fire album was really good.)

@Diamond Oz....honestly I didn't care for Firepower besides the title track.. That album is no Painkiller. The real turn off lately has been Rob himself. The a**less chap, the high heels. The fact that he now refers to himself as "The Metal God".
It's one thing for the fans to call you that but he's really bought his own press the last couple of years. Ripper has always been a tad more humble, at least from what I've read.
