Judas Priest Judas Priest is a legendary British heavy metal band formed in 1969. They are considered one of the greatest metal bands of all time and have released numerous classic albums including "British Steel" and "Painkiller."
Judas Priest has had several logos throughout their career. The first, logo seen on "Rocka Rolla", was likely based on Futura EF Bold Oblique. Then a gothic-style lettering similar to Iglesia was introduced on "Sad Wings of Destiny" and "Sin After Sin". The iconic electrified logo was first seen on "Stained Class" and used for 20 years, positioned diagonally on album covers. The "Nostradamus" album featured a completely new logo, with a serif font similar to Mason.
