Judas Priest Biography - Heavy Metal Gods
Formed in Birmingham in 1969 and named after a Bob Dylan song, the aptly nicknamed 'Metal Gods' reflects the role Judas Priest has played in shaping the hard rock and heavy metal scene. Hard hitting, Judas Priest albums of the '70s include Sad Wings of Destiny, Sin After Sin and Stained Class, described as 'pure metal' by fans and critics alike. Similar to the bands Iron Maiden, Megadeath and Motorhead, Judas Priest enjoyed their heyday of mainstream commercial success in the '80s.
With a revolving line-up of drummers, today's core Judas Priest members include guitarists Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner, Scott Travis on drums, plus bassist Ian Hill. Despite Judas Priest lyrics attracting controversy - the band was once accused of planting subliminal messages within their songs - the band's contribution to heavy metal music far outshines any scandal.
Fans of Judas Priest's grunge rock style will appreciate the work of Black Sabbath and Metallica as well. Check out all the latest concert dates on StubHub! UK, where you can buy and sell tickets to your favourite artists and other live entertainment.
