      Judas Priest's ninth album (1984).

      Having achieved their favoured style on 'Screaming for Vengeance,' Judas Priest took the fairly obvious route of copying it almost exactly for 'Defenders of the Faith,' another album geared towards fans of their heavier side. The energetic opener 'Freewheel Burning' almost goes too far in trying to prove the band's speed and intensity, the stand-out moment being Rob Halford's hasty delivery of fast-paced lyrics in the second half, but it's a great introductory song that consciously belongs to a tradition stretching back to 'Exciter.'

      The guitar tone is consistently heavy throughout the album, preventing any song from becoming a fully-fledged ballad, and the evil 'Jawbreaker' and 'The Sentinel' are clear inspirations for later speed metal bands such as Helloween. The band still remembers how to craft an instantly catchy song, demonstrated in the form of 'Eat Me Alive,' and it's only really the last few tracks that let the side down, the latter duo in particular sounding like Led Zeppelin at their least inspired.

      1. Freewheel Burning
      2. Jawbreaker
      3. Rock Hard Ride Free
      4. The Sentinel
      5. Love Bites
      6. Eat Me Alive
      7. Some Heads Are Gonna Roll
      8. Night Comes Down
      9. Heavy Duty
      10. Defenders of the Faith
