|I am The God of Electric Hellfire and I bring you...|

This year's Boy Scout Troop Spaghetti dinner was fun. Saw old friends and the like. A fond farewell as this is the last one. Hey, imagine being 18 and owning a large pick up truck with an ATV sitting in the back?
I was real surprised to see my pal from years back. Me and Mike have been involved with this BS (Bullshit and Boy Scouts are both suitable) together since the cubs (when we were 10). I'm quite hopefull we'll be in touch. What's interesting to note is that he listen's to metal which is sorta news to me. He's even seen Bodom a bunch of times which I imagine to be quite out of character from what I remember of him. Old friends have a way of surprising me.
I am still The God of Electric Hellfire!!!

Angel of Reguritation
A review of Angel Of Retribution by Judas Priest
Number of Helpful votes : 2 out of 8
Whenever I hear someone talking about Judas Priest I am always the first one to say "Those guys were sooo cool" "no one rocked harder than the Priest man!"
But it is quite obviouse these 50+ y.o. rockers have not been in touch with the direction music has taken, or where their fan base has gone to, well at least scince 1982.
This album is a pathetic attempt to re-kindle what has burned out into ruble and ashes so long ago.
the once great Rob Halford has shown some seriouse regression in his vocal abilities, and thats understandable after 30 years of gutteral hard rocking but why try to pretend it hasn't happened. The guitar work by K.K and Glen is pretty standard but far from anything fresh new or innovative.
I havent kept track of who is in the drum seat these days but trying describe the double bass pedal madness that once had it's place in heavy metals tougher side, the word "antiquated" keeps comming to my mind.
lastly I think that the lyric writing is what I find the most atrocious part of this album, they sound so angry but what are they angry about???
If you're like me and you still like 80's heavy metal, then go buy some 80's heavy metal albums, but stay far away from this montage of regurgitated lyrics, vocals, rythems and leads, I mean who wants to hear some boiled down version of these once great metal icons try and relive their glory days.
Vampid lyrics, Stale Rythems and leads, Poor mixing quality.
half star for the effort.

You don't hear many blues licks on Priest albums.
It's a well balanced guitar.
