Red vinyl 2LP
Heavy metal legends Judas Priest mark an incredible 50 year career with ‘Reflections – 50 Heavy Metal Years Of Music’, a brand new collection of 16 tracks including remastered studio recordings and 7 previously unreleased live cuts from the band’s archive. Restored and mixed by Tom Allom at La Cucina W8 and mastered by Alex Wharton at Abbey Road Studios.
Judas Priest originally formed in 1970 in Birmingham. The original nucleus of musicians would go on to change the face of heavy metal. Throughout the 70’s Priest were responsible for helping trail blaze metal with albums including ‘Sin After Sin’ and ‘Hell Bent for Leather’. It was during the 80’s that Priest conquered the world becoming a global arena headliner on the strength of such all-time classics as ‘British Steel’ and ‘Screaming for Vengeance’ as well as being one of the first metal bands to be embraced by the then burgeoning MTV plus performing at some of the decades biggest concerts (1980’s Monsters of Rock, 1983’s US Festival and 1985’s Live Aid) and being the first to exclusively wear leather and studs a look that began during this era and would eventually be embraced by metal heads throughout the world.
Priest’s success continued throughout the 90’s with ‘Painkiller’ & ‘Angel of Retribution’ and into the 2000’s with 2014’s ‘Redeemer of Souls’. In 2017 (and again in 2019) Judas Priest received a nomination for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and got ready to unleash their latest studio album
‘Firepower’ which received global success and critical acclaim. In 2020 a fully official and authorized photographic book ‘Judas Priest 50 Heavy Metal Years’ was issued.
