Judas Priest – The Artist
Judas Priest are an English heavy metal band formed in West Bromwich, England in 1969. They have sold over 50 million copies of their albums, and are frequently ranked as one of the greatest metal bands of all time. Despite an innovative and pioneering body of work in the latter half of the 1970s, the band had struggled with indifferent record production and a lack of major commercial success or attention until 1980, when they adopted a more simplified sound on the album British Steel. The line up has seen many changes but during the production and release of this album they were: Rob Halford – vocals, K. K. Downing – guitars, Glenn Tipton – guitars, Ian Hill – bass guitar and Dave Holland – drums.
