From the album Defenders Of The Faith, Judas Priest's take on this title is one of the strongest songs on that album, both lyrically and musically. The song was a consistent live favourite for the band. This was one of the last songs on which Bob tested his diminishing (but still impressive) vocal range, if only to hit the occassional high note in the chorus. (Ripper doesn't do it justice. This one is just Bob's song, somehow.)

Noded for all the vampires and wannabees, to add a bit of classic metal to their overburdened-with-Sisters-Of-Mercy collections.
