Frontman Rob Halford did a phenomenal job on vocals, whether it was on the high pitched hits such as ‘Victim of Changes’ or ‘Painkiller’ to the softer ‘Diamonds & Rust,’ Halford still has the range to make every song sound like you were still sitting in your room listening to the original album.

‘Epitaph’ also marks the first tour for Judas Priest with new guitar player Richie Faulkner, who has done a tremendous job replacing long time guitarist K.K. Downing.
