Sad Wings of Destiny is the second album by Judas Priest, released in 1976. The cover art for the album, titled Fallen Angels, was illustrated by Patrick Woodroffe. It is best known for introducing the pitchfork-like symbol known as the "Judas Priest Cross," as worn by the angel. Sad Wings of Destiny was Judas Priest's second and final studio record made while under contract with Gull Records, an independent UK company. Despite critical acclaim, the band was struggling financially due to lack of support from the label

Sad Wings of Destiny is the second studio album by the English heavy metal group Judas Priest, released in 1976. It is considered the album on which Judas Priest consolidated their sound and image, and songs from it such as "Victim of Changes" and "The Ripper" have since become live standards. It is the only album to feature drummer Alan Moore.

Sad Wings of Destiny’s Judas Priest was: - Robert Halford ~ Vocals - . Downing ~ Lead Guitar - Glenn Tipton ~ Lead Guitar, Piano - Ian Hill ~ Bass Guitar - Alan Moore ~ Drums. First of all, the tracks earlier omitted by Bain are a blessing for the album, and are all highlights. They might have spiced up Rocka Rolla, but they’re doing even better here, and combine nicely with the style that is heard here. Sad Wings of Destiny is darker and sometimes slightly creepy, yet it’s also serene in parts.

Sad Wings of Destiny is the second album by Judas Priest, released on 23 March 1976. It’s considered by fans of the genre as one of their best works (or the best), and a classic in heavy metal music. In this album, Judas Priest consolidated their sound as a heavy metal band, instead of the most hard rock sound in Rocka Rolla. Not only that, but they created an undeniable masterpiece.

  • Inventive and simple at the same time, enjoy the voice of young Halford. One of the best albums of Priest. Must HAVE !

  • For those of you acquainted with stereophonic speeds 33/45/78 rpm, think of Black Sabbath as 33 rpm , Metallica as 78 rpm,and somewhere in the middle were Judas Priest at 45 rpm.The Priest were the bridge between the hard rock of the early 70's and 80's speed/thrash metal, and they combined elements of each of those styles.They were a truly progressive band who came to define Heavy Metal at a time when punk, disco and AOR was all the rage.They filled the vacuum for those of us who had darker interests ,and with their burgeoning talent they provided many who harkened for the glory days of the Purple/Sabbs/Zep triumvirate with a new blueprint, which would resonate for another generation and beyond. The twin guitar attack mounted by the Tipton/Downing combo is a more concise, faster paced delivery. These boys could stoke up a riff to breaking point, and if you're not with it now, you soon will be,oh no, just a little more, hold back for the solo, oooohhhhh, aaaahhh, screamin' break, let it all out, Go,Go,Go, this is brilliant,you will want more,and good lads that they are, they never fail to deliver.Rob Halford's aggressive vocal performance is acutely affecting, veering between threatening, sneering and frightening on the more high tempo numbers to sad and mournful on Epitaph, which maybe yours or mine if we take his threats too lightly. Sad Wings Of Destiny is a after all a dark place for each of us, there is very little light indeed, with the endless list of horror........Tyrant, Island of Domination, Genocide, and if that's not enough to scare the crap out of you, then take a little walk 'into a back alley street where we'll probably meet, it's the RIPPER, AAARRRGGGGHHHHH!!!! By which point you will be reeling into insanity with the constant feeling of claustrophobia and be grateful for the reprieve of Epitaph as you are buried alive, the sound of the last nails being driven in, a reminder of your foolishness for not listening more closely to what The Priest are telling you..........we are Metal.You will be spared a glorious salvation however, you are a Victim of Changes, maybe not physically but most certainly emotionally and mentally, you are a part of the METAL TRIBE and you will always be, for now and for ever more.Sad Wings Of Destiny is a killer album,and l use that term with no sense of irony whatsoever, (well maybe a smidge), it is the best PRIEST album, and remains one of the most important albums of the Metal genre,and has proven both prescient and timeless in it's appeal.A true Classic........m/ m/ m/ m/ m/ stars........Horns Up!

  • I have to say, I am a Priest Fan from the Mid 70`s. This Album in my opinion is one of there 3 best Albums, if not the Best. I would give a 10 out of 10!

  • A timeless classic, and the best album by Judas Priest, (and that's a lot to say). The 70's classic heavy metal it's remarkable, the lyrics are the best ever made by the band, have some amazing, and the dark aura it's perfect. One of the best albums of all time, every single moment it's a masterpiece.Oh yeah, even better if you start whit PreludeHighlights:-Tyrant-Island of Domination-Victim of Changes-The Ripper-Dreamer Deceiver-Deceiver

  • Sad Wings is the most challenging, diverse and affecting album Judas Priest have made, as it not only bludgeons with simple heaviness (inspired by Black Sabbath), but also offers dreamy psychedelica (nods to Hendrix, Floyd), operatic flourishes (they HAD to be big Queen fans), and technical, prog-like extended epics (borrowed from the tradition of Deep Purple). And yet they synthesized all these ingredients into a powerfully-realized voice all their own. Pretty amazing, for a second album.Of course there's the extended thrill-ride of "Victim of CHanges"; the Victorian melodrama and metallic surgical strike that is "The Ripper"; the always-classic riffs of "Genocide" and "Tyrant", which could be seen as blueprints for the rest of their career.But the gorgeous and haunting ballad "Epitaph", which features perhaps my favorite Rob Halford vocal of the band's entire catalog, is the kind of material that unfortunately got left on the roadside in Priest's relentless sonic whittling-down policy (which ultimately brought them to the relatively monochromatic - but still excellent - British Steel), by which time band had streamlined down to an almost AC/DC-like simplicity in approach.Another observation: before the band's lyrics got cartoonish (I believe Priest were the first band to write songs about heavy metal itself), they displayed a depth, poignancy and understatement that unfortunately never returned. To quote "Epitaph":The old man's sitting there, his head bowed downEvery now and then he'll take a look aroundAnd his eyes reflect the memory-pain of years gone byHe can't regain nostalgic dreams he'll never see againWith trembling hands, he wipes a tearMany fall like rain, there's one for every yearAnd his life laid out so clearly now, life that's brought deathSo nearly now life once he clung to dearly now lets goBut spare a thought as you pass him byTake a closer look and you'll sayHe's our tomorrow, just as much as we are his yesterdayA lonely grave, and soon forgotOnly wind and leaves lament his mournful songYet they shout his epitaph out clearFor anyone who's passing nearIt names the person lying here as youAnd you...and you...and you...Sad Wings is no less a leap forward from the debut Rocka Rolla than Queen's second album was from their own first platter. Just stellar across the board. A fantastic snapshot of a gifted, ambitious band willing to try anything, and making it work.

  • From Rocka Rolla to Sad Wings Of Destiny it's a huge step forward to Judas Priest sound and style, a lo of songs on this album are very Progressive and the biggest improvement can be noticied on the guitar duo of Tipton and Downing. This album also has very dark lyrics compared to the previous album. This is really an important album.Track by Track:1. Víctim Of Changes: A cult classic of Judas Priest and the best song on the album. It's very Progressive and heavy 10/102. The Ripper: One of the shortest tracks on the album, but a very good one. It might not be heavy as the previous track, but that doesn't mean that it can't be as good, which it is: 10/103. Dreamer Deciever: It is a good song, but for me, it isn't the best, it's a solid, progressive song, but I keep With the opener: 9/104. Deciever: It's quite a great song, a bit underrated, but it's worth all the 2:46 it lasts: 10/105. Prelude: It's an instrumental intro and a piano one, which gives freshness to the album, but it's not for everybody: 7/106. Tyrant: One of Priest's greatest tracks on this album and their discography, simply a complete Priest song: 10/107. Genocide: Another beast of a track, awesome all the way, worth all the 5:53: 10/108. Epitaph: not that impressive for me, but it has some save points: 7/109. Island Of Domination: Great Track that closes a great album, but not the best of the album: 9/10Final Rating: 9/10: Solid, Progressive and a very important one on Priest's soundTop 5 songs:1.
