This afternoon in the Metal Digest office, we’re blasting out ‘Sin After Sin’, the 1977 album from Judas Priest. Although this album still saw Priest dabbling with hippy dippy 70’s pomp such as ‘Last Rose of Summer’ and ‘Here Come the Tears’, it did also show the Metal Gods capable of tearing it up with the likes of ‘Dissident Aggressor’, ‘Sinner’ and ‘Starbreaker’. Through a relatively pop production from Roger Glover, the tracks here felt rather restrained, think of those really camp handclaps during ‘Starbreaker’ and you get the idea. Many of these songs would get a definitive version on the ‘Unleashed in the East’ live album a few years later, but still ‘Sin After Sin’ remains a pivotal album in the Judas Priest evolution. So this afternoon, get yourself punching and biting by cranking up the volume on this album.
Come on in!
