Had Judas Priest released just this one album, it would still go down in history: full blown metallic sound, awesome solos, great lyrics, and god-like vocals: this album has it all. Released in 1980, British Steel opened the era of British metal as we know it (and American metal consequently).Judas Priest was one of the most influential heavy metal bands of the 70s, the core band comprised Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, KK Downing and Ian Hill. They set the pace for much popular heavy metal from 1975 until 1985, as well as laying down the groundwork for the speed and death metal of the 80s.The welding of British Steel is told in this exclusive programme in the bands own words, and by their once long-term producer Tom Allom. Featuring archive footage, interviews and rare live performances, plus all of British Steels finest songs. Including Living After Midnight, Breaking The Law, Metal Gods, The Rage, United and Grinder. This is a compelling, witty and exhilarating look at the making of one of heavy metals most artful creations, a true classic album.To buy this on DVD, use the following links:UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000058A2I/?tag=wwweaglerockc-21US: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00005Q2Z3/?tag=eaglrockente-20
