Description

Had Judas Priest released just this one ablum, it would still go down in history. Full-blown metallic sound, awesome solos, great lyrics, and god-like vocals: this album has it all. Released in 1980, BRITISH STEEL opened the era of British Metal as we know it (and American metal consequently). Judas Priest was one of the most influential heavy metal bands of the 70's. Hammering out of Birmingham, the core band comprised Rob Halford, Glenn Tipto, K.K Downing and Ian Hill. Decked out in leather and chains, the band fused screaming vocals with fast riffs, as well as adding a vicious twin lead guitar attack; in so doing, they set the pace for much popular heavy metal from 1975 unti 1985, as well as laying the groundwork for the speed and death metal of the 80's. BRITISH STEEL made them a world-famous band. It climbed high in the UK charts, and three tracks were made into singles, all of which became promotional videos."Breaking The Law", "Living After Midnight" and "United" receive wide radio play; which contains to this day. Priest's performance at the first ever Donington "Monsters of Rock" Festival cemented their position as the Metal Gods. The welding of British Steel is told in this exclisive programme in the band's own words, and by their once long-term producer Tom Allom. Featuring archive footage, interviews and rare live performances, plus all of British Steel's finest songs, including "Living After Midnight", "Breaking the Law", "Metal Gods", "The Rage", "United" and "Grinder", this is a compelling witty and exhilarating look at the making of one of heavy metal's most artful creations, a true Classic Album. Featuring cuts from: Breaking The Law, United, Metal Gods, The Rage, Grinder, Living After Midnight.
