Judas Priest hold a special place in Rock Band’s heart: They gave us our first full-album DLC, along with one of the toughest songs ever to appear in the game (That would of course be the death-defying “Painkiller”).
This week the Priest boys are back with a trio of brand-new live tracks, drawn from their just-released A Touch of Evil. This isn’t your typical, greatest-hits live album, focusing instead of deep tracks from the archives, and a few new ones as well.
“Prophecy” appeared first on last year’s Nostradamus, a two-CD rock opera that may well be the most ambitious thing Priest have ever done. “Dissident Aggressor” is an oldie, a three-minute slab o’thunder first recorded back in 1977, and later covered by Slayer among others. And wrapping the package is “Eat Me Alive” a potential classic in the “play when your parents aren’t around” category - This was one of the salacious songs that gave Tipper Gore nightmares in 1984. Put on your best Rob Halford sneer and jump right into that innuendo!
