Deep Purple Vs. Judas Priest: Comparing the British Legends

Tonight, Deep Purple and Judas Priest kick off their co-headlining tour in Cincinnati, Ohio; fans of classic hard rock and metal have been looking forward to this tour since it was announced in April. Priest and Purple figure among the greatest titans in heavy metal history, and certainly the most historic entities currently still in operation.

Deep Purple weren’t merely one of the three bands (alongside Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin) most responsible for popularizing and defining heavy metal’s sound during the early ‘70s; they actually predated the movement by several years, and then provided perhaps its greatest living soap opera, as band members came and went and came back again.

Judas Priest followed Sabbath out of the Birmingham, England steel mills, and proudly flew heavy metal’s flag across the second half of the ‘70s and into the '80s, while many other bands sought refuge in hard rock. Priest set the course for metal's look, sound and culture.

In short, despite their very different, rarely intertwining paths, both Priest and Purple obviously have a lot in common, so we thought it would be interesting to compare their historical achievements based on some common traits – let the comparisons begin. You might notice that we never pick a victor: that's because with this pairing, everyone wins.

Re: Deep Purple Vs. Judas Priest: Comparing the British Legends

A strange combination for me. I love Deep Purple, and as far as I'm concerned, they are genuine rock legends. Judas Priest, not so much. I really never got them at all. I saw them in their early years about four times, when they were support to Budgie, who were brilliant. I didn't like Judas Priest then, and maybe it clouded my thoughts, but nothing I heard of theirs comes close to the best of Purple, or Budgie!
