JUDAS PRIEST Guitarist Richie Faulkner Posts Live Footage Of "Victim Of Changes" And "March Of The Damned"

Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner has posted two live clips of the band in action on YouTube with comments. Check them out below:

Faulkner: "Includes GT's mighty solo and Rob's shrieking banshee at the end..." 

Faulkner: "The main part of the 'March Of The Damned' solo here from Seoul, Korea. The cool thing here is - and I wonder how many of you maniacs noticed - the zombie in the back has Robs face super-imposed onto it. Check it out from around the 15 second mark!"

On March 11th, Judas Priest performed at the Budokan in Tokyo, Japan. Fan-filmed video is available below.

The setlist on the night was as follows:

"Dragonaut"
"Metal Gods"
"Devil's Child"
"Victim Of Changes"
"Halls Of Valhalla"
"Love Bites"
"March Of The Damned"
"Turbo Lover"
"Redeemer Of Souls"
"Beyond The Realms Of Death"
"Jawbreaker"
"Breaking The Law"
"Hell Bent For Leather"

Encore:

"The Hellion"
"Electric Eye"
"You've Got Another Thing Comin'"

Encore 2:

"Painkiller"
"Living After Midnight"
"Defenders Of The Faith"

Coming off an era which saw several Judas Priest albums that have gone down as some of the greatest in the entire history of heavy metal (namely, 1980's British Steel and 1982's Screaming For Vengeance), the band from Birmingham knew that their next release had to 'deliver the goods', to cement their standing as the leaders of metal. And deliver they did, with their platinum-certified 1984 release, Defenders Of The Faith. And on March 10th, a newly expanded three-CD version of the album will be unleashed via Columbia/Legacy, which includes the original ten-track album remastered by producer Tom Allom, and a complete live recording from the Defenders tour, recorded at the Long Beach Arena in California, on May 5th, 1984.

The 21-track concert (split up over two discs) perfectly balances the then-new material from the group's ninth studio offering overall, including such classics as "Metal Gods", "Breaking The Law", "Sinner", "Electric Eye", "The Green Manalishi (With the Two-Pronged Crown)", "Victim Of Changes", and "You’ve Got Another Thing Coming", among many others.

The remastered version of “Some Heads Are Gonna Roll” can be heard streaming below (restricted to some territories):

As the band states in the liner notes to the reissue, "It's 30 years since we released Defenders Of The Faith - we're very proud to say it has become a classic that's beloved by Priest fans throughout the world"

Judas Priest continues to 'defend the faith' to this day, as the group recently issued their seventeenth studio album, Redeemer Of Souls, which sees the band's popularity amongst metalheads remain as strong as ever, as it debuted higher than any other previous Priest release (at #6 on the Billboard 200). And on the group's current tour, quite a few classics from 'Defenders' are being performed for the first time in years.

And soon, fans will get a chance to re-experience vintage Judas Priest, with the Defenders Of The Faith reissue.
