Released in the same year Black Sabbath released Heaven and Hell and Saxon released Wheels of Steel. The metal scene at the time was sizzling with new talent and this album with its iconic timeless cover was timed perfectly. Rob Halford's voice has taken me a while to gravitate to but there is no denying the power that this album delivers. Now that I have the vinyl version I enjoy it much more.

What a year 1980 was. This was one of the best. Maybe Priest's best record. The production was perfect. The guitars sound huge and vicious.

Great name and album art to accompany a blockbuster metal album. I'm not crazy about metal, but I love this.

nowadays i couldn't really listen to it without smiling: isn't it a bit funny, that this sounded fresh way back in 80.

From ~SMiLE~ 03/01/2013 14:01
The twin-guitar sound of duo of K. K. Downing and Glenn Tipton, combined with Rob Halford's unique vocals created Judas Priest's own distinctive style. " British Steel" is a seminal metal record. A kick ass album start to finish.

LOVE IT! Breaking the Law was a life changing track for me. Metal Gods is another of my favorites. Rock on Judas Priest!
