Released on April 14, 1980, “British Steel” is the sixth studio album from English heavy metal band Judas Priest. Pioneering the new wave of the British heavy metal movement, “British Steel” paved the way for the mainstream explosion of 80’s metal by providing both radio friendly, guitar heavy music while also introducing the genre to it’s signature aesthetic of black leather jackets and metal spikes. 40 years after it broke the mold, stream British Steel’s headbanging staples “Breaking the Law” and “Living After Midnight” now on Spotify.
