Incredible song/album.. Halford had most of his best vocal performances on those early albums..

Painkiller is easily the most METAL thing they've ever done & my favourite Priest album by far, but their stuff from the 70's was fucking brilliant as well.

I still think 70s Priest is the prime era of Priest. Painkiller's a great disc, but the songs on Sad Wings, Sin after Sin and Stained Class are just much deeper, better written songs. I'll take Tyrant over Painkiller anyday. Especially the Unleashed in the East version, or the one off of Halford's Live Insurrection.
Plus, Ian Hill actually PLAYED bass back then :lol:

Tracks 4-7 on Stained Class (Stained class through Savage) is like the primest cut of 70s metal out there :metal:

I agree that they're awesome albums, probably deeper & with more involved songwriting as well....but Painkiller just epitomizes pure "Metal" as far as I'm concerned. Much as I worship those other albums, I worship Painkiller more :D
