Dude has the scream down!
That would be Tim "ripper" Owens...
That's Nostradamus riff in the beginning.
when they did that album, my brother went to go see them.
If they would have played that whole album, in it's entirety, I would have went...
I wasn't a big fan after Holland left. Whenever I'd see video, or hear audio from the tours, they always cut up their hits, into medleys, doing them ½ ass, like they were in a rush to run through them, just going through the motions, & get in as many classics as possible...
I would have liked to see them go through Nostradamus completely as a concept...
Then they could have gone through & banged out a bunch of hits...
Tim "Ripper" Owens on vocals? I thought it was Bruce Dickinson at first!
Then again, if you are going to front a band like this, and your name is Tim Owens, you've got to stick a "Ripper" in somewhere.
I'm all over this when the full album gets released and would see them for certain, if they played locally. But to be honest, I am a tad underwhelmed with this initial song. It's a bit by the numbers and generic. Ripper is doing his best Painkiller era Halford. I dunno.....great to see KK back but I hope the rest of the album doesn't stick slavishly to this formula.
I dont like his tone its too scooped and generic sounding and I'm a huge Priest fan. I dont know that I'll like his music in the long run.
Like that dual lead in the solo. I would check out the cd when realeased.
Why did he leave Priest?
As a long time Priest fan
I like it, and it rocks, I will buy it.
It is after all up my alley. Tone and song structure..
you mean like Livin' After Midnight, or Breaking the Law?
This is by far, less by the numbers/generic than that, & those are the most (over) played songs by them on the radio, over the years.
My fave Priest is Unleashed in the East. That whole aggressive vibe. I liked them less when Holland left. Even though the newer drummer can drum circles around him, I thought Priest lost their identity.
This, seems to follow the path they went though, as noted above, like Nostradamus.
I'm open to it. To me it sounds cool. I don't expect odd time signatures or exotic keys from Priest. Just a good aggressive metal song. As long as it delivers the goods, that's fine w/ me.
I think it's ironic that just about every bit of new music that gets posted on the forum (not picking you out - it's everyone), but people seem to have unrealistic expectations from everyone.
Like, I posted that Yngwie song. People complain because he sounds like Yngwie...
You can't complain if Priest sounds like Priest...
Well said brother Doom
This is aggressive and has punch that my favorite Priest songs had
well, you can, but... ...
JP, a band I've seen live 8 or 9 times. I have no complaints on this tune.
Glad to hear this! Thanks for posting. Saw Ripper when he filled in for Halford back in Philly many moons a go - good fit for these two - looking forward to more.
Not really diggin'. The singer sounds like he's mocking his role. Kinda something Jack Black would do. "Satire it", so to speak.
Fuck yeah , Ripper rips . Kk is back . I knew this was coming but missed the release. Going to order it. I didn’t think Elifson would be there but very cool.
I like JP but I don’t really follow them. So why is Rob not in the band? I remember when Rob played with Fight a long time ago. Has he been gone since then?
this is KK's Priest, not Halford's Priest...
KK had a split w/ the band. It was pretty public, he told it all on his site. He had been playing gigs in UK as KK's Priest for fun. He got together w/ Tim, Les Binks (drummer, that played on Unleashed in the East) & David Ellefson (bass, Megadeth)
Tim sang in Priest when they kicked Halford out a long while back...
