  • Not only is Judas Priest's 1980 release BRITISH STEEL one of its very best albums, it also proved to be one of heavy metal's all-time classics. After Priest spent the '70s honing its dark, heavy-duty metal to perfection, the band decided to inject more melody and universal themes into the mix for BRITISH STEEL.
  • It was rewarded with two of its best known anthems--"Breaking the Law," and "Living After Midnight." Also included here are such metallic gems as "Rapid Fire," "Metal Gods," and "Grinder," establishing Judas Priest as one of the leaders of the early-'80s new wave of British heavy metal.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (12/11/03, p.113) - Ranked #68 in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time" - "...The heartbreaker here is 'She's Out of My Life'....The record also features undeniable up-tempo tracks..."

Q (8/00, p.127) - Included in Q's "Best Metal Albums Of All Time" - "...3 of the 9 tracks became Top 30 hits, but it was the raw riffage and unashamed heavy metalness of 'Rapid Fire', 'Steeler' and 'Grinder' which made BRITISH STEEL so influential..."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.52) - "To define heavy metal to someone who has never heard it, simply furnish them with a copy of BRITISH STEEL."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.51) - "It's an album that played a huge part in defining the geography of the metal landscape..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.113) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "Pivotal to its success were two Top 20 singles: deathless headbangers 'Breaking The Law' and 'Living After Midnight'....BRITISH STEEL is Priest's career-defining masterpiece."
