Judas Priest are known as the Metal Gods for good reason. Black Sabbath might have invented it with a single Devil’s tritone but Judas Priest went on to define pure, rampant, all-guitars-blazing heavy metal for more than four decades. They released their debut studio full-length Rocka Rolla way back in 1974. In truth it wasn’t that great, with more of a hippified psychedelic-rock vibe, but ever since then they’ve released classic metal album after classic metal album. So which are their best? Read on to find ou. hen feel free to give us your opinion. Even though it’s wrong.

Definitely the best Priest album, and one of the best metal albums. There really isn't a single track on here that's bad, all of them are fantastic. Painkiller is the heaviest this band has ever gone. Judas Priest establish themselves in a unique position setting a bar impossibly high with complex songwriting, intricate musicianship and a vocalist that sounded unlike any other up until that point in time. The album opener, "Victim of Changes" would effectively set up the band's career and remains arguably the best song they ever wrote. Without this album, the NWOBHM would not have been possible and subsequently, the thrash, speed, power and later, death metal genres

Judas Priest have truly been there and done that since forming in 1969. They started out as an also-ran heavy blues band, following a relatively fresh-cut template that demonstrated competence but not genius, before gradually rising through the ranks and finding their voice. Priest moved from hard rock to heavy metal, then found their pace with a radio-friendly form of metal, tied in with the studs-and-leather image that so many others copied. They were often at their best with the raw metal that helped inspire the thrash movement; then, as that style stamped it own authority in the heavy world, the progenitors lost their way somewhat, as did others like them.

The song is one of Judas Priest's first epic tracks, along with 'Victim of Changes,' which also claims a spot on our best Judas Priest Songs list. The album version of 'Dreamer Deceiver' is great, but to fully grasp the tune, we recommend checking out one of Priest's live performances of the song from the mid-'70s. 7. 'Freewheel Burning'. From: 'Defenders of the Faith' (1984).

Rocka Rolla is enjoyable enough, with its faint whiff of progressive hard rock and its warm, analogue tones, but it’s a patchy affair and never comes close to the grandeur and grit of the classics. 15. Ram It Down (1988). Returning to their traditional sound after the electronic detours of Turbo, Priest stuck to the basics on their 11th studio album. Prophecy, the title track and Pestilence And Plague are all killer, but the Priest boys couldn’t quite sustain that quality for the album’s daunting 102 minutes. 13. Jugulator (1997). Rather than attempt to cajole cynical fans into embracing the start of the Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens era by playing it safe, Jugulator declared that post-Halford Priest were in an unforgiving and furious mood.

Judas Priest is known as one of the best metal bands of all time. This Judas Priest discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Judas Priest albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included Judas Priest singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums.
