Judas Priest @ Bomb Factory, Dallas, TX

Words and photos by Scott Rowe
Judas Priest roared their way into the Bomb Factory in Dallas's Deep Ellum, riding high on their latest release, Firepower, the eighteenth album in their extensive catalog.  The nearly fifty-year-old band fronted by a nearly seventy-year-old frontman, Rob Halford, showed no signs of rust and performed a set that was simply a blueprint in how to destroy eardrums and showcase one of the best metal bands of all time.  I consider myself a veteran concert goer, who always wears earplugs, but this had to be one of the loudest shows I've ever been to.  But that was a good thing.  You would have been disappointed if it was a single decibel lower.  Performing a marathon show of 19 songs from ten of their albums, Priest left the crowd wanting more but also left everyone satisfied.  I had never seen Priest before and really did not know what to expect.  But since I have now seen them, I will only expect the very best and cannot wait to see them perform again.
