Ram It Down (Bonus Track Version) Judas Priest Metal · Preview SONG. May 05, · track 6 off from the album "Ram it Down" by Judas Priest (i do not own this song nor album). Blood Red Skies Lyrics: As the sun goes down, I move around / Keeping to the shadows / Life, hangs by a thread / And I've heard it said, that I'll not see tomorrow / If that's my destiny, it'll.
It seems contain musical elements from both Turbo and Painkiller. I happen to like the Turbo-esque elements myself, and I think the songs that resemble the Turbo style are stronger on this album than they were on Turbo. And, interestingly, the speed metal elements of the album, in my opinion, are just as strong as the songs from Painkiller.
There are a few weak songs here though, most notably "Johnny B Goode", which, along with the crappy promotional video they released, turned a lot of people off, myself included. But actually, I don't mind their version; it's just an obviously bad cover version of a classic song. The other forgettable track here is "Love You to Death".
These two songs stink, but the other 8 songs are top notch. The title track alone is so damn good that even if every other song on the album sucked, I still might be inclined to give it a passing score.
You can really hear how Glenn and KK have continued to improve their abilities as they showcase many playing techniques here that you've never heard until this album.
The title track, "Heavy Metal", and "Hard as Iron" are full of all kinds of skillful and interesting guitar tricks, such as sweep picking, classically influenced arpeggios, dive bombs, whammys, tapping, and pedal work.
There's some very nice stuff going on with the lead guitars here indeed. At this point Dave Holland was about ready to leave the band, and although he is credited as the official drummer, much of the drumming was done by a machine. I personally think that the drum machine here was a great success, and I have no complaints at all about it.
Though I often prefer organic, human playing styles, I think in this case their lack of a drummer worked out for the best. The samples they used really sound great and they really pack a punch. They have a pretty strong reverb effect going on, which is a sound I have always loved. It resembles the times, as a lot of metal bands in the 80's were utilizing this type of effect to create a Blood Red Skies - Judas Priest - Ram It Down (CD), arena rock kind of sound.
The choruses are real catchy too. Keyboards are used on this track to create a really emotional and symphonic mood. Rob Halford sings with passion, and the lyrics are just magnificent.
For me this is one of Priest's best albums, despite the unfavorable reviews it has received from some. Definitely a highly underrated album and arguably the most underrated metal album ever produced. Boy, oh boy, do people love shitting on this album. I have both of my feet planted firmly in the "fuck you, this is underrated" camp, but it's by no means perfect. For one thing there are three absolute duds here, Love Zone which rips off the coda riff from Back In BlackLove You To Death forgettableand I'm A Rocker slightly less forgettable which someone in management thought was a good idea to bring back live as a deep cut, as opposed to the far superior Hard As Iron or Blood Red Skies.
This album has a very oddball sound to it, it feels a little slick and overproduced, but then there are times when it's a few decibels or a few joints away from sounding like Under The Sign of The Black Mark, tonally anyway.
In addition, no one can seem to conclude just how much drumming Mr. Holland had laid down on what would be his swansong album with Priest and how much is a drum machine. It certainly sounds like a real drummer on the title track and Hard As Iron, which has enough double bass drumming to make you think Scott Travis joined the band early.
I know that sounds like the exact opposite of Dave Holland, but I have a difficult time believing that drum machines in the late 80s were capable of some relatively intense rhythms. Perhaps that was the direction Priest should have went to begin with. Highlights: I'm a sucker for a quality deep cut that nobody talks about, and in this particular case that cut is Hard As Iron.
One could make the case that this was the last song written for the album and it was here we see the flashes of the Painkiller to come.
What I'm trying to say is, this song totally could have been on Painkiller. The title track as well, and I think Scott Travis taking a barebones single bass drum approach would have made a great method of switching things around without sacrificing the intensity.
I kinda wish they would have had Scott flat out go back and re-record the drums on this album, or at least the songs Holland didn't play on. Of course, no review of Ram it Down is complete without talking about the metal mantlepiece known as Blood Red Skies.
Priest tried to reinvent the wheel many times, and some attempts were better than others, but it is so, SO satisfying when they get it right. This is Judas Priest getting it right in almost every regard.
Even if this is a drum machine song, it gives Priest a daring new canvas to work with that they otherwise might never have had the opportunity to use. But that impassioned, vengeful vocal performance from Rob! The wild yet somewhat classical solo from KK! That bass groove that fits in the pocket so well at least in my headcanon it's a bass groove! The brilliant weaving of keyboards and guitar chords! Blood Red Skies is a song every power metal and symphonic metal band should fastidiously study.
Not quite, but it certainly isn't as bad as it's detractors claim it is. Your Priest collection won't quite be satisfactory until you get your steely fingers on this one. These albums had been completely different, but they had at least one thing in common. They evoked strong emotions, for better or for worse. By contrast, "Ram It Down" was the "I don't care"-album. The suicidal change of course between its two predecessors was not yet forgotten. Thus, the here presented album had a tough job right from the start.
Tipton and the other dudes had a bad conscience - and this with good reason. The lukewarm piss called "Turbo", euphemistically called "experiment", was still in their minds. Thus, the opening title track sent its thundering greetings right from the outset. It delivered pure metal, while the lyrics were completely irrelevant. One rather had to read between the lines. The composition was constantly screaming: dear metalheads, forgive us the release of "Turbo", we will never do it again.
For those simpletons who still had not understood the strategy of reparation, the next song had the most primitive title a metal band can choose: "Heavy Metal". Yes, we understood that a formation, which had run into serious trouble, wanted to be headbanger's best friend again. Yet it is not a matter of minutes to regain lost trust. Leaving aside the question whether Judas Priest were still authentic or not, the opener tried to build a bridge to the fanatic "Freewheel Burning".
Due to its velocity and sharpness, "Ram It Down" was fairly comparable with this classic, but it failed to reach its compositional excellence.
Just compare, for example, the bridges of these two tracks. Here we have the toothless "Shout it out, we're all together now" trilling, there we are overrun by the determined "Look before you leap has never been the way we keep" vocals that sounded like a machine gun. Nevertheless, due to the metallic purity and some high-pitched screams of Halford, the song was much better than any softener of the "experimental" predecessor.
Please note my politically correct wording. The aforementioned "Heavy Metal" also hit the mark. Driven by a bulldozing bass, the song lived up to its name. The lyrics were as stupid as those of "Turbo", but to be honest, the value of lyrics stands and falls with the quality of the composition itself.
This might be a little bit irrational, but it was great fun to scream painfully primitive lines like "All heads are banging" or "Fists pumping everywhere". Although the song bordered on parody, it worked. Doubtlessly, the imperious screams "Heavy metal, heavy metal, what do you want? It was no coincidence that these two songs kicked off the A side and it was also no coincidence that the sinister "Blood Red Skies" kicked off the B side.
This large-sized number combined profound heaviness with an apocalyptic atmosphere, did not lack of epic elements and generated a majestic overall impression. The performance of the other guys was also convincing, but Halford left his mark in the most impressive manner. Three strong songs marked a big improvement, but unfortunately, this was no EP and the further seven pieces were as ordinary as their titles. Excellent poetry. Anyway, mid-paced pieces passed by, sometimes a little bit sleazy, sometimes a little bit heavy, sometimes a little bit commercial.
The howling guitars at the beginning of the closer were also promising, but the number did not turn out well. Its slow-moving chorus and the computerized beats left me cold.
The same applied to "Hard as Iron" enjoy its completely misplaced earthquake sample and to "Love You to Death", because its guitar lines sounded like some of the worst compositions of Gene Simmons. Just one remark, it is a ridiculous if a band praises itself for its regained heaviness while delivering this happily rocking piece.
However, here is the quintessence of the review: the appropriately produced "Ram It Down", the last album with Dave Holland on drums, did not have a massive impact.
I don't care. Coming off the commercial success, but critical failure of the unfairly hated Turbo album, Priest release the real worst Halford fronted album in their discography, Ram It Down. Replacing the already mechanical Dave Holland with a drum machine to erase that last aspect of humanity from their sound, Ram It Down is incredibly uninspired, and suffers from a lack of strong songwriting for the first time in their career.
Halford is certainly giving his all, and the solos on this album are pretty good, but that doesn't matter when the songs themselves are terrible. The album starts with Halford screaming his lungs out to the best song on the album. The hard and heavy title track may have some god awful lyrics, but the music certainly delivers if you discard the unnecessarily cheesy "shout it out" bridge. The second track comes off as plodding and slow without any good riffs to save it.
The melodic sensibility of previous efforts is MIA. The vocals in "Love Zone" grate on the nerves during the verses, and the chorus isn't very well thought out at all. This is the album basically. Their cover of that Chuck Berry classic is almost so bad that it's funny, the band hilariously misinterprets this classic and butchers it with a guitar intro that rivals Spinal Tap's "Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight" for downright misplaced showboating. Another actual good song is the ballad "Blood Red Skies".
The mechanical production actually helps this tune out as it is supposed to be mysterious and about machines. It's a nice Priest ballad with dynamics and an actual good chorus. However this is the only song on the album the production helps. We haven't been able to hear Ian Hill in nearly a decade, and the whole thing just sounds hollow, except the guitars. The guitar sound on this album is absolutely massive and crunchy, and I like it very much.
See the beginning of "Come and Get It" to see what I'm talking about. If only that guitar sound was put to use with songs that sound unfit to be b-sides. The drums are incredibly hollow, both drum machines that I hear on the album are painfully obvious and have no depth whatsoever. Halford is his usual awesome self, but his lyrics are at an all time low here.
Usually bad lyrics don't bother me, but when there is no memorable music to distract you from them it becomes painfully obvious how elementary they are. Glenn and K. Ram It Down is the bottom falling out for Judas Priest, even they realized it was time for a change. The fresh blood obviously revitalized them, as Ram It Down is a bland, uninspired album full of leftover material from a tired band.
For this mess of headbanging metal can only be addressed and reacted to by a scream. The strange period of Judas Priest releasing radio-friendly metal and roaring heavy fucking metal on the same albums, Defenders of the Faith and Screaming For Vengeance being the heaviest and Turbo and Point of Entry being.
More on that on those reviews, Ram It Down is the focus, and they try certainly try to justify the title by shoving both the heavy and friendly into one album intended to be a second on a double album.
Twin Turbos may have changed the whole perspective on Turbo considered the sellout album of Priest and Ram It Down the album before the masterpiece since they would have balanced each other.
But Ram It Down feels like they tried to go in the direction of Painkiller, while keeping the synths in the mix, and god it's so catchy and heavy at the same time somehow! Now this album to me is special because it shows Priest want to be taken seriously again and they show it very well for the most part, Glenn and K. Dave wasn't ever my favourite drummer from Priest but this is awful.
He could play a beat, he could keep and change tempo, he did justice to the albums and songs he was on and deserved better than to be credited on an album where a machine butchers his beats like a fat ugly hog. The machine does well enough, but it just sounds so lifeless.
I'll try to keep from freaking about the drums through this review and focus on the fact that this album is an evolution and return to form that would show they know all too well how to move forward with their sound with passion instead of marketing. While the Turbo amounts of cheesiness are still here for the bridge, this whole song is a sure sign of what's to come on the next album and starts the album off with a bang.
Halford's scream starting off the track gives me chills every time, with how well the guitars chime in and drum machine starts blasting it is one of Judas Priest's finest tracks ever created in my opinion It just needs real drums!
It personifies metal in every sense, chanting on about decibels no doubt the band would reach and one up on the consecutive tour but acknowledging the guitars in metal scream as much as the singers and it only solidifies this anthem and when they cheerfully ask me to shout it out midway through I gladly oblige, especially since Halford refuses to use his lower octaves through the majority of the song.
But I really don't care god damn I love me some metal god screams! Halford really belts it out at incredibly high notes through most of the album. He relents to use a sort of "Come on everybody let's rock! Blood Red Skies is nothing but passion and power.
The acoustic rendition of The Hellion urging him to soar which he certainly does once he gets the chance and doesn't stop till the drum machine the only song where the drum machine works almost as good as real kit could havehaunting guitar leads and thrum of the bass guitar fade with his cries, leaving Halford's shining moment forever ingrained into my mind.
Pounding drums actually are a staple of this album even though fabricated throughout the majority of the album, but it works very well in making Ram It Down, and Hard As Iron feel like they should have been on Painkiller. I may have bashed them but at the same time, it seems to work well with the synthesized guitar parts when they rear their automated heads. The ridiculous sound of the drums and synths may be annoying but with the level of happy go lucky they induce, the inclusion of their hilarious cover of Johnny B Goode doesn't even phase me, as it is two hundred more times catchy that good old Chuck could have ever made and I don't mean to dwell on the Metal God so much this album but damn does he go nuts with screams on this song and it fits perfectly!
While this album is cheesy in some moments and a bit frightening at times, Monsters of Rock being an extended version of the horrifying segment in Night Crawler and the whip crack at the beginning of Love You to Death drives home a darker side to the leather look I choose not to delve into, Glenn and K.
The songs are solid and even the live bonus tracks really shine as grade A performances of songs not heard in their live repertoire often, with Halford showing his pipes again and the dual leads showing their shredding capabilities.
Ram It Down shines as a bridge with manufactured parts that stands on its own but really gives us a great taste of the speed metal shred fest up next. They show happiness and heaviness go hand in hand, even though they ditch the happy one album later, and it makes for one of my favourite Judas Priest outings. Apologies for being such a huge fanboy throughout this. Rob Halford is my idol as a vocalist and all time favorite singer with Judas Priest being my favorite heavy metal band of all time and my first coincidentally.
I'm a pretty big Priest fan, they're the band that got me into metal. They have a very deep catalog, and several great albums. This isn't a great Priest album. This is just bad. Along with Turbo and Demolition, this seriously contends for their worst album.
The only really good thing about this album is the guitar playing. Starting with that, yes the guitar playing is superb. It had probably been ten years since Priest's guitar playing would have been considered even somewhat technical. This is different. Priest had been learning in this decade, and they showed a good deal off in the solos on this album. The riffing is also Priest's usual level, a bit more advanced, but still at the same quality. The only real problem is that the synthesizers are still present on this album.
Priest did not use the synthesizers well on Turbo and they really aren't much better here. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate synthesizers. Priest just didn't use them well. Halford's singing on this album is essentially to par as well. He doesn't sound like usual here. Halford was beginning to incorporate the shrieking he would utilize on Painkiller. He isn't all the way there, but he's close. To me, this isn't as good as that sounds. Halford had one foot in the old and one looking forward, so it doesn't sound ideal.
Ian hasn't been a force in their sound is some time, and this is no different. Holland apparently was ill and unable to do some of the drumming, so they got a machine to do some of the songs.
I don't too much mind this, as he really didn't do much more than a machine anyways. Two or three joint riffs will amalgamate and become a song. Turbo was a little different, so it makes people think that we've come back. In fact, Turbo was the one that was inspired. These albums I mentioned are more or less the same feel. We are very pleased with it. We feel it's a very powerful statement. We didn't write Ram It Down with anything in mind other than how we did with any other album.
We just got in the studio and wrote the songs. It formed it's own direction. And what about the solid, plodding number? Once you have a direction, it's a lot easier. In the past, with some of our records we just wrote many, many, many different songs and we just take 10 songs, or 9 songs and put them on a record, so some songs you never hear. Judas Priest has written thousands of songs that we've got in vaults in studios all around the world.
The songwriters at PUK Studios. With the "Johnny B. At one point everyone was suffering from hypothermia! But things got confusing once the recordings were submitted to CBS Records executives, who began sorting through the tracks. The label would make the final decision on what was going to be released, and both Halford and Tipton mentioned during interviews that they have no idea what was going to make the final cut.
Goode", due to the fact that the riff was written for the new song before the film opportunity became known. But only one line from "Thunder Road" survived in the bridge to "I'm A Rocker", as the label opted for the Chuck Berry cover instead, Blood Red Skies - Judas Priest - Ram It Down (CD), due to its potential to become a single. They found themselves in 'Johnny B. Goode' is on the album. You don't know what's going on with this band Blood Red Skies - Judas Priest - Ram It Down (CD) one minute to the next, including yours truly!
I'm not interested in anything else, though that doesn't mean that we won't work with other types of groups. Judas Priest have just been on the phone, and we're planning to produce them next year.
We're writing three or four songs for their album It doesn't matter who it is, as long as we have a strong degree of control over the sound. Whitesnake have recently been doing well with a clean heavy metal sound - Judas Priest want the same. Some free time came available late in '87 after the album had been recorded and was awaiting the mixing stages, so Bill Curbishley asked the band for another favor: Bill was close friends with hit producer Pete Waterman, who was one-third of a powerhouse production team well known for their UK pop hits with Bananarama, Rick Astley, Kylie, and the like.
Though talk of making Judas Priest a pop success was mentioned, the songs were not intended for anything more than possible future film soundtrack material Good friends of ours, they're old friends of ours We went in, we did four days in Paris, we got four days in between Christmas and going back into the studio.
It was a mutual thing, an experiment to just see what would come of it. We weren't chasing hit singles; we'd actually finished our album anyway and we had only got mixes left to do.
The tracks we came up with were very interesting. I don't suppose they'll ever be on a Judas Priest album, but we've been approached a lot recently to do film soundtracks and things, so maybe they'll be used for that - who knows? But were really pleased with them - we've never been scared to experiment, so There was some talk about making us a massive pop success, but we were smart enough to know that any contact with those guys would bury the band Downing, Goldmine magazine June 5, When word got out that Priest were recording with a big "pop-hit" production team, it was assumed this was for their next album, and the metal press went to town on Priest for even considering such an experiment.
Fans were outraged at the thought - indeed, it seemed that being associated with the SAW team almost did bury the band! Waterman also claims that Glenn and K. They're really good and they will be released some day in the future. Unfortunately, I think, those songs have nothing to do with Ram It Down.
But we got a lot more things to do than thinking about a few hit singles in the charts. That could make an irreversible damage to the band; we've got to sort our priorities out. They're mixed and they're hidden away in a vault in our office in London, and some day, at some point, people will hear them - it's just getting the timing right. We didn't put them on Ram It Down because we had all the material already written anyway, so there wasn't any real need to include them, but I think a lot of people were worried you know.
It's not going to be like that! We know what Judas Priest means to ourselves and we know what Judas Priest means to the fans around the world, so we'd never compromise ourselves - we'd never do anything less than what people expect from us. So they're three very powerful songs you know, so maybe you'll hear them in or the yearI don't know. We would like people to hear them, because I think people are very curious about what's happening and we had a fantastic time with them But it doesn't mean you should let yourself be dictated to.
I think that we're here to explore what we can as musicians and do things that we feel are right, but you must remember that Judas Priest has been together over 17 years now.
And considering that we are still as big as we are, then sometimes it goes up a little bit and sometimes it goes down a little bit - as long as it doesn't go all the way down there, then we're happy. The album contained some of the band's most brilliant dual guitar gymnastics and Rob's vocals soared to even greater heights.
The media declared it Priest's heaviest album to date and many fans had renewed hopes, but not as many found it delivered the goods For all the push to go in a harder metal direction, audio-wise the album had managed to retain too much of the TURBO "sheen". It wasn't that easy. Even without the synths, the guitars had an over-processed and compressed tone. It's a combination of sounds, some direct, some ambient. It's getting the right balance and combination of sound. There is synth guitar on this, but it's used subtly.
I'm very much into studio equipment, drum sounds and drums, the technological side of everything. At home I have a lot of equipment that I use to write - sequencers, computer link stuff. I'm very much into that side of it. On a guitar level, I'm a little old-fashioned in still liking a guitar to sound like a guitar.
It was a step in that direction, purely for that singular point in time. In general, I like a guitar to sing and sound good - like a guitar. We tried different guitars. The whole effects thing is becoming a lot more complicated these days.
We experimented with digital effects. We've never been ones to say, 'Okay, we're Judas Priest; let's plug into Marshalls and go.
We experimented a lot in an effort to push the boundaries. Processed tone aside, the album did boast some brilliant moments, such as the epic "Blood Red Skies", the pounding "Hard As Iron" and the heroic dual-guitar infused title track.
The songs were once again heavier and faster, but the drums and sterile production sabotaged the potential for the album to meet it's full-throttle goal. While the album charted respectably, it soon lost ground, as fans began following the new trend of thrash Thrash and heavy metal are worlds apart.
I'm not a big fan of thrash metal, but in no way am I criticizing it. To me, thrash metal was invented for groups to start on. When you first pick up a guitar, you go out there and you can play thrash metal. That's a great thing. But it seems to me that thrash metal bands suddenly develop the need to become more sophisticated, and at that point, they stop being thrash metal and become, I suppose, a little more mature in their playing.
There are a lot of heavy metal bands around today, but unfortunately, to me, a lot of them tend to sound the same, a replica of a California band or a replica of Scorpions.
It's very important that a band has its own character. It was signature Priest at their best and experimental Priest at their lowest. The lyrics, which were once poetic commentary on the metal community, had become quite juvenile. Even anthemic lyrics praising the genre in the song "Heavy Metal" now seemed cartoonish and songs like "I'm A Rocker" and "Love Zone" were rather gratuitous.
Ian Hill's bass was buried in the mix and Dave Holland had to rely on a drum machine at times to keep up with the faster pace of the music. To the fans, Priest were just plain getting too old and losing touch with the evolving scene instead of writing its next chapters. Ram It Down G. Raise the sights, the city lights are calling We're hot tonight, the time is right, there's nitro in the air In the street is where we'll meet, we're warning On the beat, we won't retreat, beware Thousand of cars and a million guitars Screaming with power in the air We've found the place where the decibels race This army of rock will be there To ram it down, ram it down Straight through the heart of this town Ram it down, ram it down Razing the place to the ground Ram it down Bodies revvin' in leather heaven in wonder Lights are dimmin' and heads are swimmin' as thunder hits the stage Hell breaks loose, turn on the juice get stronger We metal maniacs begin to rave Shout it out, we're all together now Shout it out, we join as one 2.
Heavy Metal G. It's also the leather capital of the U. Leather for horse saddles and other horse-riding gear, for example. It seems almost Spinal Tap-esque that I come from a place of metal and leather. When the power chords come crashing down Go tearing through my senses It's for the strong, not for the weak In light and dark dimensions It stimulates, regenerates It's therapeutic healing It lifts our feet up off the ground and blasts us through the ceiling Between the eyes I hear it screaming And it electrifies Your inner feelings Hot shock waves charge the air All heads are banging Fists pumping everywhere Guitars are cranking Heavy Metal.
Heavy Metal What do you want Heavy Metal. Heavy Metal What do you want Ten thousand lights come blazing down With razor sharp precision The speakers pour out molten steel The beat gives double vision An armour plated raging beast That's born of steel and leather It will survive against all odds Stampeding on forever 3.

Do you love it loud? Hard As Iron G. Blood Red Skies G. This begins in a weird way, with some atmospheric drums effects, and it tells a robot story and pneumatic fingers and laser rays.

Goode" published by Jewel Music Publishing Co. The atmospheric drones of the familiar "Blood Red Skies" intro sound throughout the auditorium. Anticipation fills the air. The Devil is always running and hiding from final judgement but at the endthey will fight one another under a blood red sky. The beginning of the conflict is described almost at the beginning: "Felt the hand of justice Telling wrong from right Threw me out upon the street in the middle of the night. But that he is constantly surveyed by angelic and divine forces while roaming a broken world:"Through a shattered city, watched by laser eyes Overhead the night squad glides The decaying paradise Automatic sniper With computer sights Scans the bleak horizon for its victim of the night.
The downside of this is that he has to deal with his upcoming final judgement and increasing mockery from believers: "As the sun goes down, I move around Keeping to the shadows Life, hangs by a thread And I've heard it said, that I'll not see tomorrow.
