Demolition [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Gary Hill
The second studio release with "Ripper" Owens, Demolition is an intriguing album. Listening to this one sometimes makes you wish that they had decided to go with a moniker other than Judas Priest. The reason is that, although this album is very strong, it really does not fit in with the historical sound of the band. It seems like a completely new group might have released it. Such a distinction almost seems to deserve a different band name. There are moments that do feel like older Priest, but the overall texture is harder and more modern. At times Owens comes across like Rob Halford listen to the first verse of "Blood Suckers", but he is really working to carve out his own ...

If you are a fan of classic Priest, maybe you should hear this one first, but if you are into more modern dark metal, by all means, pick it up.

    Priest Demolish The Opposition

    The latest album from Judas Priest pulsates with metal passion from beginning to end. Ripper's vocals come across like Bruce Dickinson in his prime. A supreme effort that could teach many young upstarts a thing or three. Highlights are Hell is Home, Close to You and Machine Man. Enjoy!

    The Priest Is Back...

    ..and heavier than ever! They seem to get heavier with age. The latest offering from these metal legands is vintage Priest yet sounds amazingly modern. Not to imply that this sounds like nu-metal or rap-metal. It doesn't. It's like Painkiller industrialized or maybe what a lot of us hoped Two(Rob Halfords Project with Trent Reznor and current Marilyn Manson guitarist John Lowery) would sound like. In fact this in my opinion is the album that should have followed up Painkiller. It just sounds like a natural progression from that. I don't know what else to say except go get it. You won't be disappointed!
