    Only good album by them.

    It's a masterpiece. 'Painkiller', 'A Touch of Evil' and 'Night Crawler' are without any doubt metal classics and all the other songs just perfect them. Also, 'Living Bad Dreams' is one of my favorite metal ballads - the lyrics and Halford's voice is too awesome.

    [ENG] Regarded as one of the best albums of the band, was responsible for the "rebirth" of heavy metal in the 90s According to the listing of "Rock with Legends" on youtube.: "On the significance of the letter, after spending years thinking that music was about Armageddon, over a lot of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse Fodastico, who arrived getting his ass of humanity, I discovered that the Priest gave an interview for Metal Hammer, saying the music speaks of themselves and Heavy Metal metaphorically! First they describe with striking and exaggerated words, a sort of personification of Heavy Metal, how to say fuck is this musical style (the best of all, in my opinion). After they speak of the resurrection of style, they and other bands were promoting in the early 90s (time qo Metal was wrong of him).

    Regardless of how many people praise this album, this shit sounds really, really good to my ears, all around, and as such I fucking love it. Have since I first heard it, and always will. Call it overrated all you want. I'll happily join the overraters.

    Their best album, no doubt! Screaming and British Steel are awesome but this album has got a more heavy metal appeal to it, so heavy and perfect heavy metal album. Masterpiece!

  • blackdeathrash

    How is this excellent? It is Judas Priest jumping on the late 1980s speed metal bandwagon and doing a very mediocre job of that. Rob halford's singing is hystrionic, tuneless and often so lacking that he needs the producer to help him out, and songs like "A Touch of Evil" are just generic 1980s-styled pop metal tunes. There are few, if any, redeeming qualities to be found.

    I really don't see how anyone can believe that this comes even close to the best of their 70s stuff.

    Maybe if you disregard all of their 1970s albums.

    I find it quite awesome that 'Painkiller' caused such an uproar between the old Priest-fans and the newly gained speed metal fans. Shows their musical diversity. Priest are true kings of heavy metal.

  • ale193

    people who like this album will love the band Primal Fear. their vocalist sounds as close to halford as I've ever heard anyone get, and pretty much all o their music is in painkiller's style. its awesome.
