Judas Priest 통산 10집 앨범인 Defenders Of The Faith는 Screaming For Vengeance 앨범에 이은, Judas Priest의 위상이 최고조에 달한 시기의 앨범으로 전작보다 다소 어둡고 차가워진 사운드를 담고 있으며 보다 업그레이드된 멜로디와 연주력을 접할 수 있다. Rob Halford의 군더더기 없는 막강한 보컬력과 교과서로 일컬어지는 장중하고 극적인 트윈기타 사운드로서 Heavy Metal의 미학을 가장 적나라하게 표현하였다. 날카로운 오프닝 넘버 Freewheel Burning, 힘찬 리듬과 장중한 기타사운드가 압도하는 Rock Hard Ride Free, 최고조에 오른 멜로디와 박진감을 지닌 중반기 최고의 역작 The Sentinel 등에서 절정에 달한 Judas Priest의 역량을 느낄 수 있다. 재킷에 등장하는 메틀리언은 라이브 스테이지에 세트로 설치되어 볼거리를 제공하기도 하였다.

Killing Track : Rock Hard Ride Free , The Sentinel
Best Track : Freewheel Burning , Jawbreaker , Eat Me Alive , Some Heads Are Gonna Roll , Night Comes Down

역시 최고! 센티널만해도 말이 필요없다! 1,2,3번만해도 다 먹어준다

앨범전체를 휘감는 웅장하고도 힘이 넘치는 사운드, 듣다보면 억눌리는 느낌마저 받는다, 주다스 앨범 중 가장 헤비한 앨범이라 생각한다 (페인킬러에는 없는 중압감),
