December 2, 2017
We’re proud to announce nine new vinyl repressings from Metal Gods Judas Priest.
If you don’t own these (what’s wrong with you?!) they can be yours on brand new 180 gram vinyl right now…
‘Sin After Sin’ – Order
Not only was this the Priest’s heaviest record to date, it was also their major label debut and the album with which they broke through on radio.
‘Stained Class’ – Order
The only Judas Priest album to feature songs by all five members, this also saw the band pioneering what would become their trademark twin guitar attack and was the first cover to feature the classic logo.
‘Killing Machine’ – Order
The album that ushered in the infamous ‘leather-and-studs’ era.
‘Unleashed In The East’ – Order
The band’s first live album, recorded during the ’79 Hell Bent For Leather Tour.
‘British Steel’ – Order

‘Point of Entry’ – Order
Following the huge success of ‘British Steel’, the band flew themselves and all their gear to Ibiza for the recording sessions. For the sound quality, naturally…
‘Screaming For Vengeance’ – Order

‘Painkiller’ – Order
The last album to feature lead singer Rob Halford, until 2005…
‘Angel of Retribution’ – Order
The legendary Rob Halford returns to create the band’s most commercially successful album so far.
