Performer Notes
  • Frontman Rob Halford has considered this to be Judas Priest's Sgt. Pepper's, and it's easy to see why. The album expanded upon the group's debut by tackling a variety of styles, utilizing dynamics to striking effect, and establishing the essential guitar interplay between Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing. "Victim of Changes" may be forever known for its snarling riffs and Halford's startling final scream, but its subdued mid-section enhances the power of those elements. "The Ripper" offers up Victorian horror, while "Tyrant" and "Island Of Domination" thunder along with metallic machismo. The album has it softer side, however, notably the neo-classical rock instrumental "Prelude," the melancholy piano ballad "Epitaph," complete with crooning vocal harmonies, and the semi-acoustic existential contemplation "Dreamer Deceiver," a long-lost gem in the band's large oeuvre. Frankly, every track on this album is a winner, and Sad Wings of Destiny would become the first of several albums from Priest that would forever transform the world of heavy metal.

Judas Priest's 2nd and maybe their best album, released on the small indepenant Gull Label in 1976 it contains at least 4 stone cold metal classics 'Victim of Changes', 'Ripper', 'Tyrant'& 'Geneocide' all of which ended up on the 1979 live masterpiece 'Unleashed in the East' . The twin axe attack is really taking form now with razor sharp riffs with Sabbath like heaviness & and Rob's glass shattering vocals over the top, set the blue print in metal for the next decade

Judas Priest's second album "Sad Wings Of Destiny" is an all-time metal masterpiece. It has it all, from slow ballads to fast rockers, with Priest's distinctive twin guitar attack and face-melting vocals. Every track on this LP is a keeper! I think all fans of metal should give this a listen. Highly recommended.
