Ever since David Lee Roth left Van Halen, I’ve always held out little hope for bands that lose their lead singers. I bought this disc thinking that it just may very well be a waste of my 16 or so bucks. However, upon the first notes of “Metal Gods” I was shocked as to how much I love the new sound! The new interpretations of the old classics sound much better today, as the guitars sound heavier, and Ripper Owens sings them perfectly. I would’ve given this disc 5 stars had I liked the material written in the 1990’s. However, if your a old time Priest fan like myself, I consider this a must-buy.
