While the '80s may have been littered with many second-rate pop-metal knockoffs of little musical merit, Judas Priest, decked out in leather and studs, always stood tall above the pretenders as the genuine article of metal greatness. Along with Iron Maiden, they helped lead the way of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal and are certainly one of the best and most influential metal bands ever. The Best of Judas Priest: Living After Midnight provides fans with a collection of late-'70s/early-'80s hard-rocking classics by one of the best in the metal business. This collection focuses on the hits of Judas Priest's career, which came mostly during the early '80s, their artistic and commercial peak…
Judas Priest was one of the most influential heavy metal bands of the '70s, spearheading the New Wave of British Heavy Metal late in the decade. Decked out in leather and chains, the band fused the gothic doom of Black Sabbath with the riffs and speed of Led Zeppelin, as well as adding a vicious two-lead guitar attack; in doing so, they set the pace for much popular heavy metal from 1975 until 1985, as well as laying the groundwork for the speed and death metal of the '80s….
This is a 4-CD chronological 'Best-of' boxset which includes previously unreleased live tracks and a rare demo. The 64-page full colour paperback booklet contains the full tracklisting with writing/production credits for each, and an extensive biography by Bryan Reesman supported with many vintage photos and contributions from the present band members, who also provide the introduction. The special box is decorated with triple-row pyramid studs on each side. The discs are kept inside carboard sleeves and are placed in a plastic tray on top of each other. The DVD contains a full concert of the band playing live at the Midsouth Coliseum in Memphis, Tennessee on 12th December 1982 on the "Screaming For Vengeance" World Tour. It was originally released as "Judas Priest-Live" by CBS on VHS. Includes brand new stereo and 5.1 surround sound mixes. Audio remixed to 5.1 by Thom Cadley.
This DVD has quite a bit of material on it that will satisfy any Judas Priest fan. Contained on it are 13 music videos, a live concert of 19 songs (used for the Priest… Live! album), five TV appearances and a discography. Now, I believe the more crammed on a DVD the better, regardless if the material is pointless or not. That way I feel I am getting more value and the DVD becomes a worthwhile purchase.
