Unlike Metallica, who tried to embrace speedy 'nu metal' w/ slow--side-t o - s i d e - h e a d - s h a k i n g results, Priest embraced speed metal w/ great results! When I heard this back in the early 90s it didn't seem like an older band cashing in on a sound that they had no business messing with. It sounded natural. And, yep, damn shame older fans kicked it to the curb.

First CD with Scott Travis on drums...you can tell the difference! Priest stands the test of time like no other!

I have absolutely NO idea why most folks wrote this CD off. This CD is floating around in used CD pins (what's left of them) for almost nothing. Mainstream Judas Priest fans should be ashamed if you gave this CD a listen and tossed it. Painkiller is very fast, very heavy, LOTS of killer leads & insane singing. This is their THRASH album and it is AWESOME! Painkiller as the first track simply melts faces. You hear this song and you turn into instant fireworks. BLAST OFF!

OH YEAH! This song is what metal is all about! One of their best songs. It's a complete sonic attack all the way through. How can you not be fired up after listening to it?
