Judas Priest’s full-length live concert video Battle Cry features the legendary heavy metal band’s performance from the 2015 Wacken Festival, where Judas Priest let loose this jaw-dropping show for 85,000 people in the middle of a tremendous string of shows following the release of 2014’s Redeemer Of Souls.
What makes the show’s track listing so appealing is it balances new classics (“Dragonaut,” “Halls of Valhalla,” “Redeemer of Souls”) along with headbanging classics (“Metal Gods,” “Electric Eye,” “You’ve Got Another Thing Coming”), as well as key album tracks from yesteryear (“Devil’s Child,” “Beyond the Realms of Death,” “Jawbreaker”).
Originally formed during the early ’70s in Birmingham, England, Priest is responsible for offering metal fans worldwide some of the genre’s most influential and landmark albums (1980’s British Steel,1982’s Screaming For Vengeance, 1990’s Painkiller etc.), while helping spread metal music to audiences not normally associated with the genre (Live Aid in 1985, and a surprise appearance on American Idol in 2011), and helping popularize the now instantly recognizable ‘studs and leather’ look. For decades, Judas Priest has been one of the greatest live bands in the entire heavy metal genre. And as evidenced by Battle Cry, Priest rock harder and more ferociously than ever.
