I usually swipe Metal Hammer Magazine off the rack & when I do it’s always nice to find a nice little gem like this free giveaway CD. And not any old CD mind, but a Tribute To Judas Priest from some big names. Even better, the fact this only cost me the price of the monthly publication is bonus material. So nice one Metal Hammer!
Anyway, I collected this a few years back & glad I did, ’cause it was then followed up by 2 more giveaways in the Metal Forge series. Afterwards, Metal Hammer released AC/DC & Black Sabbath tributes to its gleeful readers, but not sure the Metal Forge Volumes ended there. Anyone know?
FYI, A Tribute To Judas Priest – The Metal Forge was released by Metal Hammer Magazine Issue 205, 2010.
It says on the CD sleeve Metal Forge Volume 1 – Celebrating 30 Years Of British Steel With…
Disturbed, Firewind, Rise To Remain, Trigger The Bloodshed, Arthemis, Steelwing & More!
What this 9 track CD essentially is are cover versions of Judas Priest’s NWOBHM classic British Steel album in full. It kicks off with Firewind’s ‘Breaking the Law’ and finishes up with Steelwings’s take on of ‘Steeler’. See tracklist below.
