REVIEW AND PICS ARTO LEHTINEN AND MARKO SYRJALA
There are still a few basic elements left in life, which are invariable and stand up to the test of time. The same thing can be referred to the classic heavy metal bands like Judas Priest. The band is still as strong and vital as ever although original guitarist and founding member K.K Downing pulled out of Priest before the massive farewell Epitaph tour kicked off in last June. However, he was then replaced by a young bloke Richie Faulkner who does have live experiences working in other bands though. Faulkner’s contribution to Judas Priest was now introduced to the massive fan base of Judas Priest around the globe with a great response. Before the defenders of the metal faith unleashed the metal meltdown, the Swedish Hammerfall let the hammer fall in the ancient godforsaken Ice Hall in Helsinki.
