The name Rob Halford is synonymous with heavy metal music. From his work with Judas Priest all the way to his current solo work Rob Halford is no longer just a person he has become a living legend. The influence that Judas Priest and bands like Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath have had on bands that followed is just mind numbing. Now that I have kissed enough ass and shown my age let's get to the review…heh.
Live Insurrection is
the follow-up to the very successful and critically acclaimed album Resurrection.
I am sure by the title it is pretty obvious this is a live recording and
all I can say is that this is one of the best live albums since Iced Earth's
Alive in Athens. The band which includes Mike Chlasciak on guitars, Patrick
Lachman on guitars, Ray Riendeau on bass and Bobby Jarzombek on drums is
so dead on in the musical delivery it almost sounds like a studio album.
Of course you wont be able to make that mistake when you hear the crowds
just going absolutely nuts in the background. I say crowds since this was
recorded at various venues over their 96-date tour supporting the Resurrection
album. This album is just filled with killer tracks from start to finish
and not just from the previous album. There are tracks from the old Priest
catalogue as well as from Fight, the first band Rob formed after leaving
Priest. There are 27 tracks on two CD's including three previously unreleased
studio tracks at the end of disc two.
Overall if you are a fan of blazing guitars, drums that will crush your skull and music in general that can snap your neck like a twig this is a must have album. Any fan of Priest, Fight or Halford will absolutely love this album from beginning to end. By the way if you happen to hurt yourself while banging thy head don't say I didn't warn you.
Track by Track
27 Tracks that kick major ass. I really don't feel I have to give each a separate rating
