Hell Bent on Metal; Judas Priest, Saxon, and Black Star Riders at the Prudential Center in Newark NJ!
Each band gave an invigorating performance that had the audience on their feet all night long to the furthest reaches of the Prudential Center.
I am not trying to bring the band down but it feels like their best days are behind them now. The monstrous riffs are not there anymore, apart from a few more melacholy moments in the Mid Easter vibe in the songs, I couldn’t find much to rejoice about. Is hard to live up to albums like “By Inheritance” and even their last record “When Death Comes” which featured more melodic riffs and sharper rhythm and bass action on both ends.
Despite always nearly retiring, calling it a day, and more.. there is no doubt they will be back for another batch of album anniversary shows in the near future.
