Tokyo Blade: “Night of the Blade” (title track from their second full-length LP, Roadrunner Records, 1984)

Judas Priest: Sad Wings of Destiny

Second album, Gull Records, 1976

Judas Priest were one of the godfathers of the NWOBHM, and their second album defined their sound. “The Ripper”, “Genocide”, “Tyrant”, and the set-piece “Victim of Changes” continue to be standards of the band’s live performances (while songs from their debut LP Rocka Rolla were retired by 1978).

This album, along with the earlier Rocka Rolla, were reissued many times by numerous labels over the decades; and tracks from both records were compiled many times beginning with 1978’s The Best of Judas Priest (consisting only of tracks from their two Gull Records releases) and the 1981 Hero Hero (a double-album which essentially repackages both Gull Records LPs). Other collections of their Gull Records output include 2000’s CD collection Genocide.

Shiva: “Rock Lives On” (the A-side of their first single, Heavy Metal Records, 1982)
