I couldn’t find it but there’s a Beavis and Butthead clip where they get all upset because Halford was flaming harder than Freddie Mercury.

Album is on YouTube and sounds good.

4/5 on first listen.

They aren't pushing any envelopes, but this is one solid album. They've had quite a few years to fine tune that sound and it all comes to fruition on this, especially the production. If you're a fan of Priest you should give this one a listen.

I'll take a pretty by-the-books Priest album over the thousands of generic power and black metal albums that seem to be being pumped out constantly these days.

That being said, I think Firepower is better than Redeemer of Souls. Better cover too.

Loved the new Priest album, the title track and Evil Never Dies in particular are amazing. Honestly I think it may be their best album since Painkiller, as cliche as it is to say that.

It's... fine. Of course they're legends and all, but it's not anything that I would ever plan on listening to. Too much cheese, not enough meat.
