    KK's Priest - Return of the Sentinel (Official Music Video)




    Downing states: "The 'Return Of The Sentinel' song and video defines the whole sound and image of the evolution of true and classic metal… Metal that is such an important part of all of us that have been on this wonderful journey together."

    "Return Of The Sentinel" is taken from KK'S PRIEST's debut album, "Sermons Of The Sinner", which is being released today (Friday, October 1).

    This record is just...bad.

      I feel like I'm too old and curmudgeonly these days to enjoy this. I'm sure hardcore KK fans will dig it, but 9 minutes of mediocre songwriting on top of the comically terrible lyrics mailed in by Ripper just aren't for me.

            Also, what's with all the bands using freshman year art student CG projects for their videos now?

              This is a money making venture, so cheap is good!

                God, comparing this to Firepower is like night and day. As much as it sucks for KK to not be in Priest anymore, maybe it's for the best?

                  I'm pretty sure the last song KK wrote in Priest without Glenn being involved that was actually good was..."Never Satisfied"?

                  So there was no way this wasn't going to suck.

                      Besides the horrible guitar solo, I thought it was cool. Nothing great but not terrible.

                          we're so preoccupied with that garbage solo that we missed Ripper falling out of time with the guitars around 6:00. seriously, who was in charge of this recording?

                              also, the BALLS on these guys to write a sequel to THE SENTINEL that is

                              1. a song in which they kill the Sentinel
                              2. not good


                              what's next? writing Painkiller 2: Electric Boogaloo where they play like shit and then have the Painkiller die of a drug overdose?

                                I didn't miss it... But yeah...
                                Just moving the vocal parts a few milliseconds in the DAW would solve the issue in a couple of seconds

                                  Painkiller sells his motorcycle, buys a Prius and declares that breathing smoke and fire is bad for you so he's going to breathe flowers and essential oils instead.

                                    That was one of those, "Nah man, fuck it, you nailed the emotion perfectly and I don't want to lose that by having ya do it over again." and then everyone sits around and agrees that the feel of it is so good, they also don't want to fuck it up. When in reality, they're all just sick of being in the fucking studio and want to go home.
                                    The Karmic Law is not kismet. It is not fate but cause and effect. It is a taskmaster to the unwise; a servant to the wise.

                                      Pretty sure Ripper has never nailed the emotion on anything.

                                        Thats another problem I find with this song.

                                        Ripper is a great singer, but he could have gone for a softer voice in the calm part.
                                        He goes with the same MEGA METAL shrieking voice as he does during the METAL parts in the song, which just in MY opinion, sounds out of place when the song went over to a calm part.

                                          I listened to this album on my way to visit family this weekend. It was a snoozfest. Then I put on Firepower and my fucking god is that so much better.

                                            Ripper is technically fine for the style singer he is. He has NO idea how to write a vocal part that makes impact. The only time I've ever liked him was brief parts of his time in Iced Earth, when Schaffer was standing behind him telling him what to do.

                                              If I was able to I would have loved to write an album with Ripper on vocals I mean, I write everything.

                                                  honestly lmao. some sessions i have to really fight the urge to just say, "fuck it", and clean it up when they leave so i can move on with my life. i came very, very close to retracking everything in a somewhat recent session, but i fought the temptation and made them play better.
