The long awaited return of the Priest, with new singer "Ripper" Owns!! Damn it sounds so different like Pantera or Sepultura at times, and very good indeed!! Long live the Priest!! 85/100

From: Motley Date: September 1, 2003 at 15:31
I must say I was very impressed with this cd and still is. This must be the comeback of comebacks ever by any band playing metal. DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN heavy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Doesnt sound anything close to Pantera or Pukepultura at all....Its priest metal anno 1997!!!

From: Scandinavia Date: September 3, 2003 at 12:15
Well, I don't agree...I'd expected a follow up to "Painkiller" but the sound & style had changed too much..A few good tracks here especially "Jugalator", "Death Row" & "Bullet Train"...The sound was way too modern though...

From: Motley Date: September 15, 2003 at 10:42
Dont agree as well there Scandi, the sound isnt more modern...Just way more powerful than Judas has ever done. Sure they use very weird guitar introes but listne to the stalking vox and the double bass attacks. When it came out some rumours said they compared it to MachineHead (NO WAY)!!!! I think it is a great debut for Ripper and a good welcome back to the metal scene again, and I was really chocked the way the first to songs really punches you in the face. I still like it but prefer the

From: Motley Date: September 15, 2003 at 10:45
classic Priest stuff at any time!!! (Defenders, Unleashed, Priest...live, Screaming, Turbo, Ram and Painkiller)....So put the Demolition cd on the industrial wall and let this one rule proudly as the great metal return from the ONLY Heavy metal band that has ever excisted PERIOD!!!!!!!!

From: satansux Date: May 5, 2004 at 3:37
This album is awesome, I didn't know what to expect without halford, but I love it 10/10

From: Metal T Date: June 7, 2004 at 11:36
One could only imagine what "Abuductors" would've sounded like with Halford' on vox.It'll be pretty killer if Priest' does some of this material with him on the tour this year . ---------

From: T.R. Date: July 2, 2004 at 23:04
I think Ripper is a good Rock Vocalist and look to hear him with his own band.Rob is back! Face it! He is the voice of The Priest.

From: Big Papa K Date: July 7, 2004 at 18:12
This continues the terrible lyrics of the previous album (especially "Burn In Hell"), but this time the music is not as good. The sound is more modern, but the riffs are not as distinctive before. Ripper sounds good, but this sounds like leftovers from "Painkiller" updated for the times. 7/10

From: Hamerman Date: July 19, 2004 at 14:15
Face it. This album is complete garbage. The riffs are lame. Totally un-inspiring. Pathetic lyrics!! Lets just hope the upcoming album with Rob Halford will be better!!!!!

From: sean rice Date: August 2, 2004 at 0:34
one movie-rockstar,one tribute band-?,several rip-your-head-off cd's, what hasn't been said about the pseudo-priest? I say: they had to continue what they were doing to keep the flame alive-you know what happens to older people who slow down & stop "living"-They die...My allegience to heavy metal's true messengers is unshaken-LONG LIVE JUDAS PRIEST!(thanks to ripper, can any of you out there make an argument that the wrong guy was chosen for the job?)up the mother.......! irons!!!

From: Metal T Date: August 9, 2004 at 19:00
sean rice---Well put my friend.I thought "Jugulator" was an excellent record.Having seen Tim live' fronting Priest' he did a h*ll of a job.Ralf Scheepers would've been a killer choice as well to fill in for Rob.I agree JP could no longer sit idle and the fact that Jon from "Iced Earth" coveted Owens' to front his band speaks volumes for Ripper.

From: Metalhead66 Date: September 30, 2004 at 16:16
I love Priest but this Sucks!!!! Pure Crap!!

From: metal rulz Date: December 22, 2004 at 0:05
There is something strange in this cd. Oh yes, the singer! Sorry, Tim can be as good as some people has told me. But the ultimate singer for Judas Priest is Rob! Sorry...no Rob= no PRIEST.

From: Scott Date: March 2, 2005 at 11:04
Jugulator, Bullet Train and Cathedral Spires are simply some of the finest songs Priest has ever written. Ripper tears it up on these songs. People may slag this album because Halford is absent, but Ripper did a great job in the meantime. Those who cannot accept change, go hide under a rock. "Jugulator" keeps the metal freak flag flying!

From: Painkiller Date: June 10, 2005 at 5:33
This album is one of priest's top 5 albums. I'd say number 4. It's powerful. I like this new metal direction Priest went in. Ripper is a great singer. He's not Rob Halford, but he sure is close enough.

From: HellRider Date: September 6, 2005 at 9:01
Very different from what most people had expected, but great. Heavy as hell!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 16, 2014 at 20:43
Ummm...not really my cup of tea...Ripper did a great job vocally talking but for me the songs aren't that solid,way too dense for the essence of the band which is pure heavy metal(btw a pretty commercial one at times)...this record is a mix of power/doom-ish here and there/new sound of metal style of songs)...tracks 1,4,6,9 & 10 were fine to me but that's about all...65/100

From: hair metal again Date: February 2, 2021 at 8:56
pretty good release for JUDAS PRIEST without Rob in a much heavier 90 s direction that didnt do much for the fans as we always dig the classic metal sound!on the other hand the riffs and the power are remarkable and if you ignore the lyrics you get an ok result!"death row","blood stained" and "abductors" are the highlights
