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.
United – The Song
‘United’ is the fifth track and last single to be released from the album British Steel by heavy metal group Judas Priest. The song was written very much in the same vein as “Take On the World” from Killing Machine (Hell Bent for Leather in the U.S.) and meant to be a crowd shout-along.
The Razor Blade – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the shape of a razor blade commonly used in a shaving razor. The shaped blade was used as the lead image for the Judas Priest Album “British Steel” and is commonly used on Judas Priest promotional material of the era. A razor is a bladed tool primarily used in the removal of unwanted body hair through the act of shaving. Kinds of razors include straight razors, disposable razors, and electric razors.
