Judas Priest

Screaming for Vengeance - A tribute

We asked some of our friends from the wonderful world of metal their thoughts on this iconic album, which turns thirty today...


Neil Turbin (Deathriders, ex-Anthrax)

Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance (Sony)

The iconic album is 30 years old today, and we couldn't let such an auspicious anniversary pass without some sort of tribute, so MaF resident old man Scott Adams has a think about what makes the album so special...


Why I Love... Judas Priest

MaF editor Scott Adams unnecessarily explains why the last thirty years have turned out like they have for him...

When I look back now I can see there were several strands wending their way through my childhood, all pointing to a final culmination at the Hammersmith Odeon in December 1983&hell

Mean Streak - Declaration of War (Black Lodge)

Two new guitarists and an upping of intensity finds these trad-minded Swedes heading towards metal's first division
Release Date: 
27 Jan 2011 (All day)

When Swedes Mean Streak were last earnes

Cauldron - Burning Fortune (Earache/Riot)

Cauldron keep the formula simple, the way it used to be, before metal got complicated and broken down into so many sub-genre's there's barely a day goes by before a new one pops up!
Release Date: 
14 Feb 2011 - 10:30am

Sometimes keeping it simple works, sometimes you don't need all the bells and whistles added to make an album different. What Cauldron offer up with this album is just that.

Back to the Future With Scott Adams

It's 1984... and there's not a sex crime or, luckily, The Eurhythmics, in sight.

George Orwell got a lot of things right about 1984 in his book of the same name; but what he failed to predict was that the year would be absolutely titanic for ‘our kind of music’.

Judas Priest - A Touch Of Evil - Live (Sony)

Offering some classic and not-so-classic rare live cuts from their catalogue, Judas Priest deliver the goods!

Being one of the stalwarts of the NWOBHM scene, Judas Priest have forged a long and storied career with many classic albums and singles.

Judas Priest set to unleash new live album this July

Focusing primarily on fan-revered album cuts (all previously unreleased in live form on CD), ‘A Touch of Evil: Live’ features absolutely scintillating renditions of such Priest gems as “Riding on the Wind,” “Beyond the Realms of Death,” “Dissident Aggressor,” “A Touch of Evil,” “Eat Me Alive,” and the set-closing “Painkiller.”
