Review by Paul Monkhouse for MPM

Whilst they may be Heavy Metal Gods, Priest have always been kings of taking the foot off of the accelerator to provide something slower but equally as crushing as their breakneck fare.

This delicious slab of goodness from the legends is another majestic slab of slow building gold standard rock that’s rammed full of melody.

Destined to become a fan favourite, this takes the Gothic sensibility meets massive hummable hooks of Ghost and turns it into something that is unmistakably Priest, the guitars having bite but slicing cleanly rather than eviscerating .

Giving a stellar vocal performance, Rob Halford is on mighty form, the lyrics soul deep and bleeding. A joyous work of art, there’s still no-one who can touch Judas Priest.
