Judas Priest, Verizon Theater, Grand Prairie, Texas, Monday 13 July, 2015 – Reviewed

By Steve Crawford | July 14, 2015

For an old fashioned, pump fisting night of late ‘70s/early ‘80s metal, it’s hard to imagine that few bands have held up as well as the current touring version of Judas Priest.

US Top 10 Albums 7-26-14

By Iman Lababedi | July 17, 2014

So 1000 Forms Of Fear in at # 1 even if only 54,000 units shifted, still a good number. Maybe I was wrong? Maybe I should listen to it again?

Sneak Peaks: New Album Releases week of July 7th, 2014

By Iman Lababedi | July 6, 2014

My feeling about Sia is something like, there isn’t an EDM track her tender, lush but very powerful voice can’t make better but without the dressing, her songs aren’t as strong as they need to be.

What? Judas Priest Is Not Death Metal?

Judas Priest: a character in the episode referred to the band as ‘death metal’, something which didn’t sit well with Judas Priest’s fans and überfans, and Bart Simpson had to apologize in his usual old-fashioned classroom punishment, writing a hundred times on the blackboard ‘Judas Priest is not death metal’.
