Ok , this has been on my mind since I read that article in GW about Judas Priest getting together for Ozzfest. Judas Priest and Iron Maiden have always been known as gods of metal. I know of people who consider Iron Maiden to be Priest's apprentices of sorts. Now I am a huge Maiden fan , Powerslave and Somewhere in time are two of my favorite metal albums , so to me , Maiden are pretty much the gods of metal . But I always hear stuff about how Priest are the greatest and how Rob Halford is the best singer in metal and blah blah. I never understood what was so great about Judas Priest. Ive heard most of their albums and theres nothing really that amazing in em . Most of their songs sound the same to me anyway, I mean cmon , Heading to the highway and living after midnight are practically the same song . So could someone please explain to me what makes Priest so great. Its not like they originated metal - Sabbath and Zeppelin did that, nor were they the first to popularize it- Sabbath again and Uriah Heep, Rainbow, and those types came before Priest. Rob Halford is nothing compared to Bruce or Dio or Ozzy, Id rather even listen to Lemmys voice than Halford. So could someone please tell me what makes Priest so great????????
