Well, not their best release but it has to start somewhere, right? A lot of Rory Gallagher riffing here & the beginning of the 70s priest atmospherical thing...

Hey, it was 1974, heavy metal had barely been invented yet... if you pick this album up expecting it to be heavy as their later stuff, of course you're going to be disappointed. But as a historical document, this album's fascinating. Halford was still doing "Never Satisfied" live on his last tour! It may not be "metal" per se, but this is still a classic record.

I Think that this is an hard rock album...:cool

A bit different from the rest of Priest's catalog but still a good early metal album. What this album did was announce the beginning of an era, the Heavy Metal Era! Vocalist "Bob" Halford, KK Downing, Glenn Tipton, Ian Hill and soon to be sacked drummer John Hinch released an album that draws comparisons to Black Sabbath's debut or Uriah Heep's "The Magician's Birthday." "Cheater" is the only cut that hints at what is to come.

Armored Saint recorded a smokin' version of "Never Satisfied".

This was only their debut. They will get better and better with next releases. Not to say this one sucks...just a little bit slow (if I can remember some from this one)...but the classic Priest will be found in the releases that followed.

Talk about a scene inspiaring a band. Yah the underdeveloped 70s existed. Thank god i was just three when this came out, becuase i was being primed for the GLORIOUS 80S.

From: KISS Date: August 31, 2005 at 5:46
More progressive feel than their later release. I also detect a strong sabbath influence here although this would be much less apparent in their later album. Not in the class of other excellent debuts(of the 70's) like van halen's and kiss's self titled but a worthwhile album if you are a big fan of nwobhm, claasic metal, power metal etc.

It is not Judas we know but it surely is a piece of nice hard rock.

From: halfordhughes Date: June 2, 2011 at 13:41
their debut album....The beginning of a legend...very good blusy style album!

From: ICA-Hernan Date: August 23, 2013 at 13:24
One disc totally great and good a start for Judas Priest. Love this is Album.

From: hair metal again Date: March 17, 2020 at 10:58
ok debut for JUDAS PRIEST ,not the one expected from their later on sound , as it is much slower and not so heavy !actually there s not even hints of their talent and only in songs like "cheater","one for the road" and "never satisfied" you ll find some quality!
