Unleashed in the East Reviews

Reviewer :    (90/100)

Unleashed in the East, as the album was called, was surrounded by rumours about its authenticity. Claims were made about Rob Halford’s vocals, that were supposedly overdubbed in the studio, as well as the guitar parts. Some even went as far as to say that the album was completely recorded in the studio, and made to sound like a live recording by clever engineering, jokingly referring to it as ‘Unleashed in the Studio’. It was later admitted by both Halford and Tipton that the vocals were done over in the studio, as Halford was suffering from the flu at the time of recording and the original vocals mix was ruined. Whether there is truth to these claims or not, Unleashed in the East stands today as Priest’s most famous live recording, and is still hailed as one of those brilliant 70’s live albums by many.

Judas Priest의 첫 번째 공식 라이브 앨범 "Unleashed in the East"이다. 1979년 2월 10일과 15일 양일간의 도쿄 공연을 담고 있다. 이들의 인기가 일본에서 특히 높기도 했지만 당시에는 영국 밴드로서 일본에서의 실황을 발매한다는 것은 밴드의 성공을 상징하는 것이기도 했다. 약간의 스튜디오 더빙이 있은 것으로 알려지고 있지만, 거의 모든 곡들이 스튜디오 버전을 능가하는 모습이어서 만족스럽다. 국내에서의 인기는 그리 많지 않은 편인데, 본토에서는 주다스 프리스트의 디스코그라피에서 최정상을 다툴 만큼 많은 지지를 받고 있는 앨범이기도 하다. Tom Allom의 프로듀싱으로 제작되었다.

Best track : Exciter , The Green Manalishi , Victim of Changes

최고의 보컬 롭 핼포드..... 70년대 특유의 빈약한 녹음 때문에 초기작들을 꺼리는 사람들이라면 이 앨범을 듣고 그 편견을 박살내버려라....!!! 최고의 컨디션 최고의 연주...... 이것이 메탈이고 이것이 남자고 이것이 마쵸다!!!!
