Judas Priest

Judas Priest

Judas Priest is a British heavy metal band formed in Birmingham, England, in 1970.[1] The band has sold over 45 million albums to date.[2][3][4] MTV ranked them the second "Greatest Metal Band" of all time.[5] Despite an innovative and pioneering body of work in the latter half of the 1970s, the band struggled with indifferently-produced records, repeated changes of drummer and a lack of major commercial success or attention until 1980 when they adopted a more simplified sound on the album British Steel, which helped shoot them to rock superstar status. In 1989, they were named as defendants in an unsuccessful lawsuit alleging that subliminal messages on their albums had caused the suicide attempts of two young men.[6]
