Judas Priest Are Still Metal Gods

Judas Priest Are Still Metal Gods

Article written by BT Guest author: Maureen Vitelli

JUDAS PRIEST ARE STILL METAL GODS as they  held service to the 5000 metal maniacs at Casino Rama last night. The band played their 3rd stop in Ontario in support of their new album “Fire Power”. The crowd worshipped lead singer Rob Halford, who still has one of the most powerful voices in metal.  They featured a few songs from the new album as well as their early masterpieces from British Steel, an album released almost 40 years ago.The crowd was on their feet, reliving metal’s past glory days with the songs, “Sinner”, “Heads Are Gonna Roll”, and “Breaking The Law”.  Halford said the band has been out on tour for the last 15 years and he acknowledged the fans, the Priest Family for keeping them going. He acknowledged the fans in the nosebleed seats waving their flags and went into their encore with “Electric Eye”, “Metal Gods” and “Livin” After Midnight”. A great and really really loud heavy metal experience!

This is Yiannis’ way of inviting you in to join in… Continue Reading

Devouring Saturn

Devouring Saturn has become a bit of an enigma. I saw them play live as this monstrous progressive space band. Their delivery was in your face as they threw you through the cosmos like an entity playing Frisbee golf. They never did get around to completing that first recording; instead they decided to deliver a… Continue Reading

Jupiter Hollow – Odyssey

Odyssey is the first recording from the mind blowing band Jupiter Hollow. The band consists of Grant McKenzie on Guitar, Bass and Synthesizer. The other member is Kenny Perry on Vocals, Drums and Synthesizer and keyboards. Between these two guys they can create a lot of noise. I compare them to, if Dream Theater had… Continue Reading

World Famous Tall Boys – NO.2

World Famous Tall Boys – NO.2

I must admit this was a unique experience. The CD started off like a Progressive rock experience and quickly kicks you in the face of a full on Punk Rock band. It contains heavy and speed metal elements as well. You quickly find out they just want to wail their frustrations on everything they dislike.… Continue Reading

Kamancello

The Spirits have shown up and have a ritualistic dance to perform. “Incantation”, is just that, it opens ups with a conjuring of the spiritual realm to enter this special space. This two piece band consists of Raphael Weinroth Brown playing the Cello, and Shahiyar Jamshidi playing a very cool instrument called a Kamanche. Every… Continue Reading
