Judas Priest are legends. True, inarguable legends. They have been an unstoppable force in rock and roll and heavy metal for almost half a century. That Rob Halford’s powerful vocals are still as vital and soaring as ever is a miracle, much less that the band has managed to consistently release good music for that long a time. While age has slowed them somewhat–many of Halford’s moves are restricted to puttering and swaying, intermingled with huge, bombastic gestures and frequent (fabulous) costume changes while Ian Hill remains largely stationary–drummer Scott Travis and guitarist Richie Faulkner continue to bring a surprising and energetic flair to the legacy act’s powerful heavy metal.
