Judas Priest plays “Killing Machine” for the first time since 1978

During a performance at Zénith in Paris on the evening of January 27, 2019, Judas Priest played “Killing Machine,” a track that had not been seen at concerts since 1978.


“Killing Machine” is the title track of the band’s fifth studio album, which had its name changed to “Hell Bent for Leather” in some countries. It was the last disc of Judas Priest to count on the drummer Les Binks.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
