Today we take a trip back to 1984 and the classic ninth studio album released 30 years ago (January 4, 1984) by my all time favorite metal band Judas Priest, Defenders of the Faith.
Recorded in Ibiza, Spain and produced by Tom Allom the album reached the #20 position on The Billboard Top 200 chart in 1984 and the band released videos for Freewheel Burning and Love Bites.
The track listing for Defenders Of The Faith is as follows:
- Freewheel Burning
- Rock Hard Ride Free
- The Sentinel
- Love Bites
- Eat Me Alive
- Some Heads Are Gonna Roll
- Night Comes Down
- Heavy Duty
- Defenders of the Faith
The song Eat Me Alive ended up becoming #3 on the Parent’s Music Resource Center’s (PMRC) list of the Filthy Fifteen songs that the group found the most objectionable. Awesome!!!
