Sad Wings of Destiny is the second studio album by the English heavy metal group Judas Priest, released in 1976. It is considered the album on which Judas Priest consolidated their sound and image, and songs from it such as "Victim of Changes" and "The Ripper" have since become live standards. It is the only album to feature drummer Alan Moore.
Rocka Rolla is the debut studio album by British heavy metal band Judas Priest, released on 6 September 1974 by Gull Records. It was produced by Rodger Bain, who had made a name for himself as the producer of Black Sabbath's first three albums. It is the only album to feature drummer John Hinch. According to the band, the album was entirely played live, in studio (.
Sad Wings of Destiny boasts one of the most recognizable album covers in Patrick Woodroffe's Fallen Angels. Depicting an outstretched angel surrounded by flames on the ground, the band's trident emblem made its first appearance hanging from the angel's neck. The original Gull pressing inverts the two sides of the record on the sleeve with Side A beginning with "Prelude" and Side B kicking off with "Victim of Changes. Little did Judas Priest know that they had just created a heavy metal masterpiece. It has a lot of good things going for it, and it's an important album for us as a band and for heavy metal music in general.
Sad Wings of Destiny supposedly is what Rocka Rolla was supposed to sound like, but they were pressured into making something that had more commercial appeal. Thankfully Judas Priest was quick to get on the right track and make an album of this caliber. Superchard gets super hard for: Victim of Changes Tyrant The Ripper. Judas Priest's sophomore album starts with one of the greatest metal tunes written in the 70. r in any posterior decade. And basically, never tones down quality for the rest of the LP. Great changes were applied indeed, from their somewhat unimpressive debut from two years before, Rocka Rolla. The legend of the Metal Gods really started with the tour-de-force that is Sad Wings of Destiny, considered by some as the first, unadulterated, 100% heavy metal album ever.
Judas Priest’s first album on a major label was their third record, 1977’s Sin After Sin. But the band actually recorded two prior albums before they got signed to a major label, and said releases tend to be overlooked. The group debuted in 1974 with Rocka Rolla, and followed it up two years later in 1976, with Sad Wings of Destiny
Sad Wings of Destiny (1976) by Judas Priest. Labels: Gull Records. Genres: Heavy Metal, Hard Rock Members: Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, K. K. Downing, Ian Hill, Alan Moore. Was pretty surprised by how good this album was. Amazing, great riffs and Rob's killer vocalwork. An early Priest gem. Animni (95/100).
Sad Wings of Destiny’s Judas Priest was: - Robert Halford ~ Vocals - . Downing ~ Lead Guitar - Glenn Tipton ~ Lead Guitar, Piano - Ian Hill ~ Bass Guitar - Alan Moore ~ Drums. First of all, the tracks earlier omitted by Bain are a blessing for the album, and are all highlights. They might have spiced up Rocka Rolla, but they’re doing even better here, and combine nicely with the style that is heard here. Sad Wings of Destiny is darker and sometimes slightly creepy, yet it’s also serene in parts.
