At the start of 2022, Judas Priest announced that their upcoming 50th anniversary tour would be completed as a four-piece with one guitar player. The responding public outcry and outrage brought a change of heart, and just a few days later the band reverted to its historic two-guitar configuration. Join us today as we trace the evolution of metal guitar harmony from its origins with Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, and Iron Maiden; into the thrash era with Testament and Slayer; then beyond in the hands of Death, Dissection, At the Gates, Mastodon, and more. Come lock into one of the bedrock elements that makes all metal roar. Know your Roots!
