Next in line came the Darkest Heaviest album that Priest ever recorded 1978's "Stained Glass". Considered their most influential album this record opened the portal to what future heavy metal would become. The subject matter is dominated by death and the darker side of the human soul, not exactly light hearted fare, but when you listen to this album you can feel the single mindedness of the band as they intentionally took Heavy Metal into a new place. I have to be in a particular mood to play this one, but after you do you will understand the tremendous impact that JP had on almost every metal band that followed and also why they are the Heaviest of the NWOBHM beyond any doubt.
I'm betting METALPRIEST could pull off singing Victim of Changes without any problems hitting the notes.. Even at the end where Halford let's out that evil growl and ends it with the HIGH note.
When I first heard MP sing, that's who I thought of right away.. HALFORD!!!!
The Priest has the pipes!!!
