    Killing Machine (On Sale)

    Killing Machine on Numbered Limited Edition LP from Mobile Fidelity Silver Label


    Smoking-Hot 1978 Set Released as Hell Bent For Leather in the United States


    Produced by Pink Floyd The Wall Engineer James Guthrie: Uncompromising Album and Exacting Performances Remain Hard Rock and Metal Bedrocks


    Marries Streetwise Aggression to Commercial Accessibility, Overflows With Confidence, Boldness, and Diversity


    Includes Metal Standards Hell Bent for Leather, Evening Star, and Delivering the Goods


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI


    Released the same year as the equally pivotal Stained Class, Killing Machine cemented Judas Priest's standing and reputation as the world's foremost metal band of the late 1970s. Further diversifying its music and sporting increased confidence, boldness, and full-bodied songwriting, the album managed a then-unprecedented task of appealing to mainstream tastes via its impeccably solid production, creative prowess, and staggering melodies. Known in the United States as Hell Bent for Leather, Killing Machine remains a titanic release no matter the name.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, this Silver Series numbered limited edition LP broadens the scope of the original production, helmed by none other than Pink Floyd The Wall producer James Guthrie. Besting those on all previous editions, the low-end thrust, high-frequency dynamics, and all-important midrange now come alive with unsurpassed detail and accuracy. Soundstaging and imaging positively explode before your eyes and ears, and instrumental separation allows insight into band's tight-fisted interplay.


    Recognizing the era's potential and pushing to expand metal's horizons, Priest created music that at the time hadn't any peer. With proto-metal luminaries Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, and Led Zeppelin experiencing career low points, and campy hard rockers following a softer path, the English quintet married street-bruising intensity to commercial accessibility without compromising any aggression, volatility, rawness, or ruggedness. Part of the success owes to Guthrie's expert hand. A majority, however, lies with the group's unrelenting ambition and variety-not to mention masterful performances.


    Exemplified in the breakthrough "Hell Bent for Leather," as tough-as-nails resilient as any metal song and delivered by vocalist Rob Halford with a pronounced ruffian attitude as guitars blaze behind him, Killing Machine sparks with high-powered muscle and concise, exact rhythmic structures. Halford comes into his own throughout, sending his falsetto into another universe on the wide-open highway-driving anthem "Evening Star," evoking deep loss on the ballad "Before the Dawn," and attacking "Delivering the Goods" as if he's a mercenary. There's not a wasted note or moment of doubt on the album.


    To author and metal expert Martin Popoff, music doesn't get any better. "To my mind, Killing Machine was the apex, the hallowed halls of heavy metal which Priest summarily occupied alone at this particular juncture in time," writes Popoff in his The Top 500 Heavy Metal Albums of All Time. "The songs on this record sweat the corners and creases of all of metal's characteristics, Priest firing on and off all speeds, from quick and note-dense to positively glacial."

    Screaming For Vengeance (Awaiting Repress) (On Sale)

    Screaming for Vengeance on Numbered Limited Edition LP from Mobile Fidelity Silver Label


    Double-Platinum 1982 Blockbuster Remains Judas Priest's Most Commercially Successful LP


    Includes Electric Eye, Screaming for Vengeance, You've Got Another Thing Comin'


    Dual Magnesium-Burn Guitars, Leather-Tough Percussion, Molten-Hot Melodies Help Form Triangular Equilibrium of Speed, Accessibility, and Attitude


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI


    You've got another thing comin'! Distinguished by dual magnesium-burn guitars, leather-tough percussion, molten-hot melodies, and the unmistakable piercing falsetto of operatic vocalist, Screaming for Vengeance became the soundtrack to millions of music lovers' lives in the early 1980s as Judas Priest continued to lay waste to its contemporaries' softer, cheesier hard-rock styles. An effort on which precision-based speed, mainstream accessibility, and resilient attitude meet in triangular equilibrium, the 1982 set remains the British metal legends' top-selling record.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, this Silver Series numbered limited edition LP shows off the grand intersection of daring adventure and commercial purpose achieved via ironclad production values and entrenched grooves. The latter particularly benefit from this analog pressing, as the group never overlooks the importance of rhythm and pace even when stoking tempos to engine-combusting levels. Leagues ahead of the sonics gracing its peers' albums from the time, the sense of balance, separation, and realism is on par with that of big-budget rock creations.


    Staked by the breakout "You've Got Another Thing Comin'," which burns white-hot with foot-pounding riffs, prize-fighting percussion, and singer Rob Halford's gun-for-hire blare, Screaming for Vengeance clutches hold of the jugular and doesn't let go. A return to the band's gritty, purist roots, the record revisits the themes of darkness, menace, and the unknown firmly established on the pioneering Stained Class and Killing Machine. Along with those albums, and British Steel, Screaming for Vengeance is the template for the catchy albeit uncompromisingly heavy crossover success Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax enjoyed years later.


    With the one-two opening tandem of the instrumental "The Hellion" and stomping "Electric Eye," overseen by Halford as if he's embodying the persona of a wicked James Bond villain, Priest sounds utterly futuristic and terrifying, the instruments seemingly on a swivel and the sawed-off tones flooding the guitar solos with intimidation. A classic head-out-to-the highway anthem ("Riding on the Wind"), a racing proto-thrash banger ("Screaming for Vengeance"), and a scorching exorcism ("Devil's Child") function as the metal-hued bolts that hold the foundations of this Top 20-charting benchmark in place.


    Perhaps more so here than on any other record, Priest spit-shines hooks and collusive six-string harmonic leads to perfection, giving listeners ying-yang doses of pain and pleasure, sweet and bitter. Songs at once invite sing-a-longs and fist-pumping responses. Screaming for Vengeance marked the last time Priest would sound this heavy in the 80s. No wonder it was voted the 12th best metal album of all time in Martin Popoff's definitive book of the same name.

    Stained Class (On Sale)

    Stained Class on Numbered Limited Edition LP from Mobile Fidelity Silver Label


    Pioneering 1978 Record Planted Flag for Speed Metal, Features Crisp and Clean Production Unlike Any Other Heavy Album of its Era


    Band's Razor-Blade Logo and Studs-and-Metal Image Begin Here


    Deemed The Heaviest Heavy Metal Album of All Time: Last Priest Set to Feature Songwriting By All Five Members


    Includes Exciter, Better By You, Better Than Me, Beyond the Realms of Death


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI


    Judas Priest's namesake razor-blade logo is recognized the world over. So, too, is the band's leather-and-studs look, the roughness and rebelliousness seamlessly meshing with the group's no-nonsense music. Both trademarks arrived with 1978's Stained Class, a benchmark not only for the British quintet but for the international hard-rock community. Boasting cleaner, crisper, and more refined production than its previous efforts, the record became an archetype of the style that ultimately became speed metal.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, this Silver Series numbered limited edition LP opens up the sound and spectacle contained within Stained Class like never before. Immeasurably more dynamic than the 2001 CD remasters and more transparent, extended, and immediate than the original vinyl pressings, the reissue brings the metal gods to life. Rob Halford's piercing falsetto reaches untold heights, and the crunch-and-burn of the dual-guitar interplay boasts realistic weight, balance, and tension. There's nothing like the sound of metal on vinyl.


    The last Judas Priest effort to feature songwriting by all five members, Stained Class briefly attained infamous status during the early 1990s after it became the subject of a legal case involving two misguided youths. Yet Priest's unanimous victory in court further reaffirmed the LP's purist, no-frills appeal and, moreover, drew attention to the symphonic precision and cleaver-sharp melodies within what Metal Hammer magazine declared "the heaviest heavy metal album of all time."


    At once visceral, complex, aggressive, sinister, and focused, Stained Class addresses topics such as death, victory, and the alien unknown with combustible relentlessness and instinctual passion. While the turbo-thrust gallop of "Exciter" and blaring momentum on "White Heat, Red Hot" rank as straight-ahead shots of adrenaline, the band displays a still-underappreciated lyrical intelligence on "Savages," the title track, and "Heroes End," all owing to long-view perspectives and Biblical imagery. And with "Better By You, Better Than Me" and "Beyond the Realms of Death," Priest cut two songs whose influence on the likes of Metallica, Megadeth, and countless others remains today.


    As metal journalist Martin Popoff wrote in his book The Top 500 Heavy Metal Albums of All Time: "The album was first and foremost a spot of production crumpet proposing that this kind of music could exist and thrive within the realm of armchair audiophile fidelity. This was applied nowhere with more force than within the tom-tom sound of drummer Les Binks, who holds the philosophical line to the briefly sparked Simon Phillips' version of the band, one record previous."
