BT: Judas Priest – Hard as Iron

3 April 2012 3 Comments

This song is the true definition of a Buried Treasure.

Released in 1988, Ram It Down boasted one single, a cover of Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode.” Hands down, this cover is absolutely terrible, inexcuseable and one of the worst recordings in the Priest catalog.

There’s a track on Ram It Down called “Hard as Iron.” To my knowledge, it has never been played live. It’s one of the best songs in the Priest catalog and one of the most underrated songs in the history of the genre.

Play this loud. Very loud. Deafeningly loud. Enjoy.

    It’s one of the catchiest songs in their catalog. I don’t think Halford could pull it off live in 2012 even if they tried to play it. The team of Tipton and Downing is just totally sick.

    They’ve ignored this disc live since its release for what reason I’ll never know.

    You should do a column each day like this.

    I;m not much of a Priest guy but this track is epic.
