Metal After Midnight: Judas Priest “Living After Midnight”

Welcome to the first edition of “Metal After Midnight” where we’re going to feature some of the best classic Heavy Metal from the past and introduce you to some new stuff that has the “classic” feel to it.

To start this off we have to go with arguably the most influential Metal band of all time, Judas Priest.  Their 1980 release “British Steel” is considered by many to be their crowing achievement.  The list of bands that were influenced by this release goes on and on.  “Breaking The Law” and “Living After Midnight” influenced the the Power Metal genre, and other tracks like “Rapid Fire” and “Steeler” helped create Thrash Metal bands like Metallica and Megadeth.

“British Steel” in many ways is like AC/DC’s “Back In Black”.  It was probably their most complete release and still remains relevant today.

So, here’s one of the earliest videos Judas Priest ever made, “Living After Midnight”.

Here’s some BONUS Priest for you in the form of “Painkiller” that came out over a decade after “British Steel”.  It helped spawn a new generation of Metal over in Europe that is still going strong.

One of the bands that were HEAVILY influenced by Judas Priest is Germany’s Primal Fear.  Here’s their classic from 2004 “Metal Is Forever”
