I hope the music is good. Not a fan of the title, and the artwork seems to have been made by A.I.

That Tom Sawyer riff is kinda funny.  :lol Aside from that, it's a cool tune. Rob sounds menacing.  :metal

Pretty good - the tones/riffs make it seem like they are going for some Painkiller vibes on this album  :metal

EDIT:  on second listen it's better than pretty good :)

I love it - can't believe how great Rob still sounds at his age and that's some nice use of his high notes in the background vocals.  Priest is always at their best when the riffs are aggressive.   :metal

I enjoyed it quite a bit on my first listen, but it's kinda odd to release a single FIVE MONTHS in advance of the album.

3 albums in and we are really getting the feel for the Tipton/Faulkner/Halford writing team. Hard for me to describe but there is a difference.
The song will never be among my favorite Priest tracks but at this point in the game I’ll F’ing take this. They have no business sounding this good.

Pretty good track.  I don't think at this point if their career that anyone could not be satisfied with that track.

Richie is coming a long way as a player too.  Some nice things going on in that solo.

Definitely solid.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums........or WTF.  ;D
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

I was going to use that word to describe it lol.

To be fair, while it is simply solid, I think it gets extra Credit BECAUSE it's so late in their career.  Didn't care for the lyrics though.

Not the biggest fan of the lyrics either but I admire Rob trying to do something a bit more modern instead of defaulting to songs about metal or medieval/fantasy battles......which I'm sure we will still get plenty of judging by the album title.

Still really solid track.

Enjoyed it muchly :)

Lots of energy and good riffs. And, yes, a total nod to Tom Sawyer!

Have to agree with pg, though…five months in advance?!

That was pretty great. Still hoping for some 70s vibes on the album as mentioned by Ritchie.

Switching over to KK’s Priest for a moment. It just occurred to me yesterday that it feels to me (and I wouldn’t be surprised at all if it were true) that all of the ideas are coming from an AI bot. Like KK’s manager just said, “Watch KK. It’s easy. Just tell ChatGPT that you want a song in the style of Judas Priest, and voilà!!”

Haven't checked out the second album yet but I went through the lyrics of the first one and 6 of the 10 tracks had the word metal in the lyrics. Just so lyrically one note that it made the entire album feel more repetitive to me than it already kinda was.

Not that anything from the JP camp has exactly re-invented the wheel or anything but Firepower and this just feel more lively.

I listened to the second KK one a couple of days ago.  It's better than the first.  Pure definition of solid.

A lot of the solos are so awkward and distracting though, much like the first.

I actually want to hear some of those songs now  :rollin
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

I dig the hat/glasses look Halford is sporting. That's about the only thing I dig there.
