Judas Priest followed in the large footsteps of Black Sabbath and forged their own path. They are at the top of their genre of heavy metal. A lot of pretenders tried to come after but these guys were the best. The majestic vocals and musicianship was unique. I don't believe they get the credit they deserve but understand it is not everyone's cup of tea. I have listened to Rocka Rolla, Sad Wings of Destiny, Sin after Sin, Killing Machine, Unleashed in the East, Stained Class, British Steel Screaming for Vengeance and Priest Live and I recommend them all.

Say what you will about some of their discography, and they aren't better than Iron Maiden, but metal would look very different had Priest never came along. A lot of classics they still kill live today. Influential and very heavy.

When I was growing up, my mom would probably not allow you in the house if you didn't like Judas Priest. I will certainly follow that rule as well. One of the very best heavy metal bands. The 70's material is very tough to match and even though it came out in 1980, British Steel is certainly a gold standard.

Best out and out heavy metal band of all time. The opening of Unleashed in the East is just awesome. Agree with the comments on the dueling guitars. Saw them 2 years ago (2010) and I was impressed with how good Rob Halford's voice still is. Liking the total irony of the leather clad lead singer who was (somewhat) secretly gay.

Awesome old school metal band that still delivers the goods. Painkiller was one of the first cds I ever bought and one of my favorites.

This band is a heavy metal staple. They were the first to take heavy metal approach without so much bluesy sounds. The Breaking the Law riff is in every heavy metal guitarists arsenal.

I see Priest as one of first - if not THE first - pure metal bands. Fantastic vocals and dual guitar leads. Rhythm section is average at best...but the band doesn't need anything too fancy.
