It Baffles The Mind

Do you like metal? What KIND of metal you say? Why, HEAVY METAL of course! Anyways, if you do, Priestess came out with a new album recently (Oct. 20th in Canada, Feb. 2nd in the US), entitled Prior to the Fire. It is AWESOME. Nothing against their debut album, Hello Master (2005) but Prior blows it out of the water. They have improved hugely, no jokes. The new album has a much more obvious Thrash sound, but still maintains a nice classic heavy metal sound that I think will appeal to fans of hard rock as well. The lyrical content is interesting, ranging from a song about werewolves to... RoboCop and Dragonball Z... I can't really say I have a favourite track, as they're all really good, but if I was forced to choose, it would be "Communicating Via-Eyes". Or "Sideways Attack". Or "Ladykiller". See? Too many good tracks.
(My rating - 4.5 out of 5)

Here's the video for "Ladykiller". It's odd. But I dig it.
