Why I Love... Judas Priest by Ihsahn
With their 45-year career, Priest are the metal gods, and Ihsahn worships at their altar of steel.
THEY WROTE THE RULEBOOK
“You could say that Black Sabbath invented heavy metal, but Judas Priest defined it. That’s the most fascinating thing about them. Priest said, ‘This is metal!’ and something distinct from hard rock music. Everything we associate with metal, Priest were among the first people to do it. The leather, the spikes and all that, they took it to a different level.”
