What it lacks in variety, Painkiller just makes up for in solidity. All of the tracks thrash even if they are similar.

El disco. Podríamos terminar aquí el comentario sobre 'Painkiller', pues cuando la perfección derriba la puerta de tal manera el silencio es suficiente para mostrar admiración y respeto. Judas Priest conquistaron de nuevo al mundo metálico después de un par de discos por debajo del nivel habitual de los británicos. Por suerte, para dar la bienvenida a la nueva década, Judas Priest parían un clásico inmortal, de esos que siguen vigentes a día de hoy y que seguirán perdurando dentro de cincuenta años como joyas perennes del Metal. Musicalmente, nos encontramos con un disco de puro Heavy Metal pero de un espíritu cargado del Thrash Metal que se estilaba por la época. Judas Priest se metieron en el barro para acallar todas las bocas que criticaban al grupo por su giro comercial a mediados de los 80. 'Painkiller' es un puñetazo a las costillas que te deja sin aire.

Heavy metal wasn't strong in the 90's.

What a comeback this is after two mediocre releases. One of their best albums.

A great consistent listen from start to finish. Truly a great example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

Avoid the remaster btw, sounds awful relative to the initial release.

Easily the best Judas Priest album, but also one of the finest metal albums that exists on the face of the earth. Several great songs and perfect consistently throughout the tracks.
