One of the most consistent, creative and awesome rock bands ever.

They just released two fucking awesome albums back to back (redeemer of souls and firepower), at a moment in their career where other bands have long turned into a joke. 

halford- best vocals in history? what a range, and what a wicked tone.

tipton / downing: what a guitar sound.

consistently awesome, all of it.

Huge fan. 

Firepower was good, but a step down from Redeemer imo. I actually rate Nostradamus as one of the best things they've ever done. But then I've always liked Priest at their most experimental (Stained Class, Sad Wings Of Destiny, Sin After Sin etc).

I live Firepower. The guitars sound fantastic. I have never seen them and even though Tipton and Downing aren't there I'd still go once

i seen them live once and they totally caught me off guard with one of the most awesome shows I ever seen. was one of the first seasons with faulkner, and they opened with "rapid fire". what a way to open a show.

my favorite albums: defenders of the faith, painkiller,  angel of retribution, redeemer of souls and firepower

honorable mentions: killing machine, british steel, screaming for vengeance and stained class

I'm less a fan of their more progressive 70s stuff

I’m a casual fan. I’ve come to enjoy them a lot more over the years. British Steel through Turbo is one of the greatest runs of albums in all of metal, and I know it’s a super unpopular opinion but I think Turbo is their best album. Love that sound and wish they had explored it further. 
 

I’ve seen them five times, mostly on combo tours and at festivals. I thought they were so bad the first time I saw them (On the Nostradamus you’d) that I actively avoided seeing them for years after that. Really enjoyed the gigs every time I’ve seen them since though, and I did go to see them do a headline show last year when they did the second leg of the Firepower tour where they did all deep cuts.
