Jugulator is the thirteenth studio album by British heavy metal band Judas Priest. It was released in Japan on 16 October 1997 and the rest of the world on 28 October 1997. It was their first studio album since Painkiller in 1990 and the first of two studio albums the band recorded without Rob Halford and with vocalist Tim "Ripper" Owens

Judas Priest effortlessly transcend the banality of the modern Metal they have been accused of attempting to emulate on this album. The fact that so many songs are memorable alone speaks to the record's worth, with some even being declared classics, in retrospect. The music isn't quite as theatrical or overblown as past Priest albums, but now that 'Nostradamus' has been released, I would like to think that 'Priest fans have begun to understand that one can, in fact, be too theatrical. So Jugulator will go down in history as one of Judas Priest’s heaviest albums, but it will also go down as one of their worst ones. Part Owens and part modern influences to blame, it’s just not a pleasant listen anyway you look at it.

Band Name Judas Priest. Album Name Jugulator.

Expectations were high for Jugulator, the first release from Judas Priest since Rob Halford left to form Fight in 1993. Indeed, the album debuted at an impressive number 82 on the Billboard album chart. New singer Ripper Owens, formerly of Winter's Bane, almost lives up to the hype as a ballsy singer, but he lacks the upper octave range that made Halford's voice distinctive. The lack of distinction is primarily what makes this album a lukewarm rehash of 1990's Painkiller.

Album (Studio full-length). Jugulator Information. Track listing (Songs).

This is the album even hardcore fans should stay clear away from. Judas Priest has had their fair run of classic, average and downright disappointing albums. Fans would rock out to the 80's classics of 'Screaming for Vengeance' as well as older material such as "Stained Class'. It wasn't until the tail end of the 1980's that long-time fans would question the mighty metal machine and with questionable albums like 'Turbo' and 'Ram it down' rightfully so. All was forgiven however come 1990 when the band unleashed arguably their best album 'Painkiller'
