Appeared in 1967, although the initial formation has nothing to do with the key members of the group, Judas Priest, name derived from a theme by Bob Dylan Judas priest run to the mill bass cover, judas priest run to the mill bass lesson, ("The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest"), is one of the most significant bands from the metal of the late 70s and early 80s, golden age for heavy bands.
With a term coined for the first time by the writer William Burroughs in his novel "The Soft Machine", these metal bands got rid of the psychedelia that experimented extremely with the electric sounds in the late 60s, exemplified in groups like Cream , judas priest run to the mill guitar lesson, judas priest run to the mill guitar tab, Blue Cheer or the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and also got rid of the blues-rock
essence that distilled the historical hard rock groups, from which they take the basis of their sound concept, such as Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath, influenced by in turn by the pyrotechnic guitars of the aforementioned Hendrix or Cream.
The self-styled heavy metal groups were mainly those that appeared in Britain in the late 1970s with Judas Priest as one of its main names. They amplified and hardened the instrumentation of their ancestry, especially the guitars, accelerated the tempo, usually addressing dark tones, provocative, contestants in the lyrics, which is usually a breeding ground for the attraction of the urban teenager, and they were meant, as in the case of Judas Priest, for unique clothes.
