If we went back and made a history of heavy metal, we´d have to use many sources. The line, as it´s been said before, starts at some point with Blue Cheer, MC5, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath. However, a generation that followed these would mark the genre deeply and it would turn it into a style, a way of life. That´s how, in England, the NWOBHM appeared in the sixties: New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. Among the greats in this genre are emblematic bands like Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, Budgie, Diamond Head, Motorhead, Saxon and, of course, Judas Priest. Despite the adverse critics of the typical rejection of Heavy Metal and its different sides, it´s improbable to know which would be the state of music in general if it wasn´t for heavy metal.
With a mix of convincing hard rock, sonic and volatile guitars, and like in all good rock bands with a touch of blues, Judas Priest became one of the riskiest bands of the genre, as well as solid and styled. It´s, probably, with Iron Maiden and Motorhead, the most emblematic band of that time. Dressed in leather and spikes, the entries of Rob Halford, the singer, on an immense Harley Davidson on stage warming up the crowd are memorable, while he made them vibrate with their dirty, sexual, alcoholic and heavy hard rock. They took their name from a classic Bob Dylan song: ´The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest´. Among their more important albums we can findÂ âSad Wings of Destinyâ, âHell Bent for Leatherâ, âScreaming for Vengeanceâ and âPainkillerâ. The career of Judas Priest is marked by the different changes of personnel, a trial for having been, allegedly, responsible of two suicides in the 80s, and what up until now some of the harder members of metal cannot get out of their head: Rob Halford coming out of the closet and publically admitting his homosexuality. After forty years of touring and excesses, this great band bids farewell to the stages with their Epitaph Tour, a tour that´s already going all around the world.
Judas Priest will be playing in the Rock-Metal Main Stage of the Sziget Festival in Budapest on the 11th of August at around 9.30pm. If you´re a fan of good metal, get there early and go and see the great Helloween, who will be on stage at 7.30pm warming up the crowd for Judas Priest. In case you didn´t know, Helloween is one of the most important German heavy metal bands. With great albums like ´Keeper of the Seven Keys´ and the fabulous live ´I Want Out´, these Germans have the respect of the world for being among the best that came out of Germany in the 80s regarding heavy rock.

That´s why don´t miss out on getting apartments in Budapest this 11th of August and see a memorable heavy rock moment in this city. The Sziget Festival is a great opportunity to get to know new people from around the world. Guaranteed fun!

Look, I never forget Budapest, not only for all the Hungarian porn actress I´ve seen in my life or for the times I´ve gone to the medicinal baths throughout the city, itâs none of these things; neither is the architecture or the Danube, nothing: it is about the fact that Budapest can be so free and ultra gay, if you search well you will find so many fetish and atmosphere chances.
To go out, I recommend you to do it after 11pm, as bars are not so full before this time, and what you want is to arrive and succeed. I recommend you the Action Bar if you are there on Friday night, itâs got strip-shows and live sex, and if, after a while, you want to dance, there is no better idea than going to the Alterego club. Knowing its name, imagine the rest: the most beautiful and fashion boy, transvestites of all ages, dance, hmmm…
On Saturdays, if you want to go out at night again, I recommend you the Coxx Club. It is full of latex and glamour, that is to say, we are soldiers and they are dolls, latex and black glasses. Before that, of course, take a look to my favourite shop: Black Dream. Specialized in bondage on a minor or major scale, they have penis extenders and> machines to brush it against your partnerâs one, how beautiful! Suckers and anal masturbations with electric objects, Iâm so exited!
If after so much hustle and bustle you feel like relaxing your body a little bit in some âspaâ, you must visit the Magnum in the eighth district. Get massages from the boys at a low cost: as I love the bears, there I am in paradise.
There is no city with limits, so rent apartments in Budapest and let yourself go by your party instinct. The best thing of the Hungarian capital city is that, despite being a little bit conservative, if you remain for the necessary time you will find the darkest pleasures, so nothing else, just trust.
