IO Album Giveaway: Judas Priest’s “Screaming For Vengeance” 30th Anniversary Edition

“Rob Halford rules, man!” is a statement that has been uttered by many a jean vest-wearing metalhead since the mid-seventies, and this one has no hesitation about saying it in 2012. Listening to Screaming For Vengeance, it’s clear that the heavy-level riffage, piercing vocals, and suggestive lyrics wrote the blueprint for virtually all of the 80’s metal that would follow in its path.

The 30th anniversary edition of Screaming for Vengeance will be released on September 3rd, and features not just the remastered original album and bonus tracks, but also a live DVD from the 1983 US Festival concert, filmed in San Bernardino, CA.

To enter to win a copy, tell us in the comments below which classic Judas Priest album is your favorite and why. This contest will end at midnight on September 3rd. You must have a mailing address in the US or Canada to enter.
