KISSPriest has always meant one thing -- take no prisoners. For decades, across one continent to the next, they have never wavered in their commitment to treating the Stage as Holy Ground. Do not tread lightly there. This is a place reserved for the few. The proud. The mighty. A toast then, to a band that has given its all to the fans.And the magic will continue when the next 15 year old puts on his first Priest record, pumps his fist in the air and is instantly transported to a land where only Metal Gods roam.KERRY KING, SLAYERDELIVERING THE GOODS“I could pick a dozen Judas Priest songs! Favorite band of all time. Picking one is far more difficult. Favorite album - Stained Class. Favorite song...being put on the spot I’d have to say Delivering The Goods off Hell Bent For Leather. Great song for all the reasons I like Priest. Killer riffs, killer lead into my favorite lead break they’ve ever done, straight into taking the song in a complete different direction. Awesome.”RANDY BLYTHE, LAMB OF GODTHE GREEN MANALISHI (WITH THE TWO-PRONGED CROWN)“While the true meaning of the lyrics to Fleetwood Mac’s The Green Manalishi are apocryphal, the song has always seemed well, sinister to me. In the hands of The Metal Gods the tune becomes elevated to frightening. I still don’t know exactly what the The Green Manalishi is or what it does with thetwo - pronged crown, but after hearing Halford’s snarling version, I sure as hell don’t want to meetit in a dark alley. Hail Priest!”ALICE COOPERLIVING AFTER MIDNIGHT“For a metal band, Priest has always used tons of melody... when you have a singer as great as Rob Halford, you have to write great riffs WITH great melodies, you can’t just have riffs. Living After Midnight is the perfect example. This is Judas Priest’s most memorable anthem. This is every metal head’s party song, because naturally...the party always starts after midnight. Actually I think Rob has been to most of those parties.” This biography was provided by the artist or their representative.
