Walsall Leather Museum: Hell Bent for Leather

Hell Bent For Leather: Judas Priest and the Heavy Metal Look

The historic home of leatherworking took a look at ‘the look’ of Heavy Metal and its most famous sons of Rock, Judas Priest.

Dressed top-to-toe in an awe-inspiring mixture of shining leather and gleaming studs and chains, Judas Priest moved the Heavv Metal scene and its fans firmly into the territory of the rebellious outlaw; to a place where image became inextricably linked with the sound. This exhibition featured stage costumes from the Painkiller and Fuel For Life tours borrowed from the band’s own collection plus a wealth of fans’ memorabilia and photographs. Fans had the opportunity to feature in the show by adding to a wall of fan photos where they were encouraged to strut out in style and channel their inner Metal God!
