Description: British Steel is the sixth album by British heavy metal band Judas Priest, released on 14 April 1980.

The man who wanted to be Joan Baez (14 music items)

" British Steel peak at 34 on Billboard and # 4 in UK, released 14th April 1980, carry the band on Metal throne. Still today any rock radio plays Living after Midnight and Breaking the Law once daily. The record went Gold then Platinum, whose merit ? Tom Allon first, he cuts short dark sounds and focus on Major chords. Precise drumming of ex Trapeze Dave Holland gives strenght to the rhythm and his left arm is a mallet. The album cover became an istant classic, guess who...Roslaw Szybo ! Halford"

Top 11 Metal Albums of the 1980s (11 music items)

"Sure, 'British Steel' is Priest's sixth album and has a bit of a commercial gloss to it -- relatively speaking. But it also yielded some of their most beloved power metal anthems, such as 'Breaking the Law' and 'Living After Midnight.' WIth power, groove and heavens-hitting vocals, these songs are among the most familiar tunes in the band's expansive and impressive catalog; you could also sing along to these tracks, which is an overall hallmark of this decade of metal."
