The Pit of Hell
A quick press while the American Football is having a time-out.
Judas Priest are the most Spinal tap of metal bands: motorbikes, dandruff emitting guitarists, studded leather jackets with fringes. The only box they don’t tick is the Sudden Death dead drummer syndrome. They have went through a lot of percussionists, though. The most infamous being Dave Holland who was imprisoned for sexual offences against a mentally ill boy.
Rob Halford, the singer, is to my knowledge the only openly homosexual heavy metal star. There will be others but none as successful commercially as Judas Priest. JP do have a lot of big songs in their locker. This song is first Down material. Play it loud.
The disgusting Holland is not the drummer in this clip. It is a man called Scott Travis.
