Awesome Music / Judas Priest

HE! IS! THE! T! V! TROPES! THIS! IS! THE! T! V! TROPES!

  • While it's generally overlooked in favor of their later albums, Rocka Rolla did have its fair share of awesome music.
  • If we're talking about Awesome Music, we shouldn't forget Sad Wings of Destiny.
  • 1977's Sin After Sin gave us many great tracks.
    • "Dissident Aggressor", a song with one of Halford's greatest screams IN THE INTRO.
    • "Sinner" had one of their best Epic Riffs.
  • 1978's Stained Class.
  • From 1979's Killing Machine:
    • "Delivering the Goods". Not even Van Halen had performed riffs that fast!
  • British Steel, start to finish.
    • Especially "Rapid Fire" and "Breaking the Law".
  • Angel of Retribution, the group's big comeback album in 2005, is much better than you'd expect. Standouts:
    • "Deal With the Devil" (classic '80s-style metal, but doesn't sound dated at all).
    • "Revolution" (a lot like Queen's "We Will Rock You", but even more Badass).
    • "Worth Fighting For" (a lusciously melancholy cowboy/Western-style number, with a Buck Owens-like riff and Rob singing in a decent American accent; he even sounds a bit like Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots!).
    • "Hellrider" (Yes, it's a bit Narm-y, with Rob sounding kind of like the Wicked Witch of the West at some points, but it's damn near irresistible.)
    • JUDAS IS RISIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNGG!
  • NOOOOOOOOSTRADAMUS!!! VIIIIIIIINDICATION!!! NOOOOOOOOOSTRADAMUS!!! IIIIIIISSSSSSSS AAAAAAAAAAVEENGEEEEEEED!!!
  • With classic Priest-sounding tracks like "Down in Flames", "March of the Damned" and "Halls of Valhalla", Redeemer of Souls proves that there's life after K.K. Downing.
