Gotta love it when fans defend their band's change of direction regardless of the output. Do you really believe that it was a coincidence that they released Turbo in 1986, Painkiller in 1990 and Jugulator in 1997?


Turbo wasn't a bad album, I prefer the more aggressive character of the two that came before it, but if I were to do an apples to apples comparison between it and a lot of more blatantly glam albums from the mid-80s, it comes out ahead of a lot of stuff. Perhaps I'm biased because "Turbo Lover" was the first song I heard by them on the Masters Of Metal: Thunder And Spice compilation back in the day (also the reason why I ended up hearing "No Stranger To Love" a year prior to hearing "Iron Man"), but I can sympathize with Luvers' take on the album to an extent, even if I did score it 18 points lower.

I do not. There are plenty of Priest songs that I do not care for and some I completely dislike.

Not sure how you can ask me if I think that. It was not a coincidence, it was a creative decision that started on Killing Machine and has continued to this day. Every Priest album is a reflection of the era it was made and those three are no different.

Your first Priest exposure was Turbo Lover? I also prefer Defenders and a few others to Turbo, not like I had the opinion it was the bands best work. I just think I am back where I belong. Alone on the stage, saying my peace and dodging the tomatoes that come my way. :boo:

As I have stressed in every Priest review I have done(or will do), expecting anything when it pertains to Judas Priest is just foolish.

No other metal band would include Last Rose of Summer on an album boasting the first speed, thrash and power metal songs. Sad Wings of Destiny is where people claim Priest became Priest and yet it features an undeniable Gospel tune in Epitaph, particularly in the vocal department. Why? Because it is Judas Priest and the only thing they could give a fuck about less is consistency.


This is false. They've often done things in pairs. Killing Machine and British Steel are certainly similar records. Screaming for Vengeance and Defenders of the Faith are pretty much twin records. Even the most recent two are very similar to each other. If anything, they've followed the mantra of "if it works, do it again".

Good point. If it wasn't clear with my previous post, I also suggested that JP were definitely chasing trends; but I can imagine that the die-hard JP fans refuse to believe that. :p

bayern, when I saw that you gave ole Salem Lot's (or one of them, anyhow) a higher grade than Satan's latest, had to give it a go...it's pretty thrashy, in a muddy, maze-like, furnace storm of wanly expunged mayhem. (Although I'll stick with Terre Infernale for now.)

Props to Chair for his Vulcain review, another cool band that would’ve flew under my radar otherwise!

Thanks kazhard, I'm actually quite fond of Vulcain now, as they stand in as a Frenchified Tank, big time! Upon originally reading the "meh!" review for their debut, didn't necesseraily have high expectations, but yeah, they're definitely up there with the "creme de la creme" (accents be damned as they're too much trouble, keyboard wise).

I've a modern day French band to purview I think you'll also dig greatly...although it requires manifold spins before further analysis.

I was born in 1980, and somehow despite constantly watching MTV in 1988 and 1989, I was exclusively catching stuff by bands like Poison, Cinderella, Motley Crue and Guns 'N' Roses. My brother had a cassette copy of a compilation called "Masters Of Metal: Thunder And Spice", which had a bunch of hit songs from the 80s by an odd mishmash of rock and metal bands. "Turbo Lover", Alice Cooper's "Poison" and Ozzy's "Shot In The Dark" were my three favorite songs from the compilation, but I really enjoyed everything that was on it. That cassette was also my introduction to Triumph, Black Sabbath (technically Iommi's first solo album as the song was "No Stranger To Love") and Jason Bonham's solo band.

So I guess Turbo Lover was the first. Not usual for a fans first listen but I get it though. Even though I have enjoyed/loved metal since discovering Triumph in 1978 and becoming a connoisseur of the genre but I did not discover Black Sabbath until 1983 with the song Digital Bitch from Born Again being played on an FM radio station.

I kind of feel bad for the folks whose first introduction to Priest was Turbo Lover. Not the best way to introduce such a legendary band to put it lightly... :violin:

I dunno. My introduction to Priest was Living After Midnight, a song that I thought was really fucking boring back then and remains really fucking boring to this day. Turbo was one of the last Priest albums I listened to and I surprised myself by feeling like it was the third best album of the decade for them (obviously SFV and DotF are superior). It's a lot of dumb fun and the title track is a legitimate classic tune. Priest has always been extremely good with hooks so them leaning into that strength whole hog absolutely works for me. Sure it's not as heavy or mean as the few albums before it but sacrificing some speed in exchange for even catchier choruses is a fair trade for me.

Worth noting that my experience with Priest didn't happen in the 80s. Maybe I'd hate Turbo to death if I was a huge fan of the previous two albums at the time. Zoomed out decades later, it's a little easier to decouple the art from the context of the time, and Turbo probably works a lot better in the context of a 50 year career than it does as the followup to two of the best metal albums of the decade.

Indeed, the visual it conjured put me off my feed! (hint: "chick" or "broad" in French-from-France translates as: "gonzesse", a word I've always wanted to integrate into a review, yet struggle to in light of its ribald connotation...)

Slater, you have new Paganizer at pretty high clicks. When you mention that the instrumentals are "a bit standard" and the vocals "a bit bland", you're saying that's what other people might think, right? Because I'm one of those people, so your score shocked me!

Congrats on reading the whole thing, I stopped reading that glorified track by track review at "Gothenburg faggotry."

So you made it through five paragraphs, but couldn't make it all the way through because of that term?

And unlike some people that dislike 21st century Kreator, I don't mind the fact that these albums are melodic (Coma of Souls is also pretty melodic, and we all agree its awesome), nor do I think they are necessarily "Gothenburg faggotry" (songs like Replicas of Life or Civilization Collapse sound to me more like Symbolic-era Death songs than anything from the Gothenburg scene), although there are times where that description fits.


It's clear the writer uses it with some distance (which he/she could be faulted for), and it's definitely not the case that the main criticism advanced is "this is Gothenburg faggotry". It's also not a track by track.

Hey, twist, nice Darian and Friends review. I checked it out after reading, and was mighty pleased by such differential vocalizing for each track - "Lost Horizons" sounds like wayward Trident Lords; although, the final balladry at the end dragged on a mite too long (I forced myself to hear it in full, simply out of form). I've a new Michigan band under my wing I really want you to check out, only I'm too burnt at the moment to force a justice-done review or two, as both their albums slay in a radio-friendly, but ultimately metal way.

Hint: The cover of the first sports a black & white "locustmotive".

Cool to see that my Paganizer review is getting some attention! :thumbsup:

And yeah, the standard descriptions might be a bit of a let down, but what I was trying to say is that it's the execution of the sound and style that makes this album so damn good.

Not liking this review from Echobreather.

To me, this album is basically Gorguts's "Obscura" done right, as the mix of tech-death and avant-garde metal is done really well here. Might have to give it a review sometime this summer.

I was just shitting on this review on discord. When he says ""this is just your average old school death metal in the vein of Incantation, Immolation, and/or Gorguts," I rolled my eyes so fucking hard. He then states that he doesn't even like that style of death metal, so why fucking review it anyway? "Most of the time the drums are there just for the rhythm." Well fuck me, I thought drums were supposed to keep the rhythm.

Not liking this review from Echobreather.

To me, this album is basically Gorguts's "Obscura" done right, as the mix of tech-death and avant-garde metal is done really well here. Might have to give it a review sometime this summer.

Obscura is one of most difficult listen of my life,took ten years to appreciate it

Don’t give up,sometimes try to listen and re listen this work I don’t want believe that you don’t appreciate

Of course it’s only a cons

I kind of feel bad for the folks whose first introduction to Priest was Turbo Lover. Not the best way to introduce such a legendary band to put it lightly... :violin:


When you're 10 years old and you think that glam rock is the greatest thing since sliced bread and the heaviest you'll go is Guns 'N' Roses' "Appetite For Destruction", it's not really that bad of an introduction. In retrospect, Turbo as an entire album is their weakest from the 80s and only real edge out the Ripper Owens albums for 3rd weakest overall, but the title song is so stupidly catchy that to this day I can't help but enjoy it. It only leaves a bad impression if you are a heavy metal expert who somehow never heard Judas Priest before (is that even possible?) and it's your first song. It's easy to trash stuff in retrospect because it's dated, but at the time, it was well-liked, particularly among those who hadn't been exposed to the earlier stuff.

I've just read the recent review of Rings of Saturn's (read: Lucan Mann's) new instrumental album. You know the band has taken a massive nosedive if even a self-proclaimed fanboy is taken aback.

Must confess that Cold lake was my first lp of heavy metal (sic!)and I liked (argh)

When have ten years too shit seem gold

The Ultimate Sin was my first metal album. Which isn't that bad IMO. The drumming is a little too barebones (given what a monster Castillo is) and the production is a little too pristine, but the songs themselves are solid.

That's not too bad, all things considered, there are some good songs on it, despite the nightmarish cover. (I also had bad dreams about the long and vampiric, purple nails on the hand cradling an electric axe on cover of Slade's Keep Your Hands Off My Power Supply, it being my first given tape by one of father's friends when I was barely old enough to properly pronounce those danged "th" sounds i.e. the theatre, not "da feetor" for example.)

Haha, robotiq, I bet it must have felt funny typing out "robotic" in your Prophecy Of Doom_Matrix review!

Indeed it did, took a double-take before completing that particular sentence.

Hey gas, I checked out Lord Vigo after reading your wisdom nugget strewn review and found much to my liking, notwithstanding the awesome band name. They're mild similarities to Hell and The Night Eternal, with a nice balance between doomy and hard rocking parts. Vigo up!
