Sound Setting

I have used my normal Judas Priest 11 Rack preset on all guitars.
I am using a Marshall 800 Head. Bass at 12 o’clock and the mids and high up to 3 o’clock.
Pre amp is at 10 and master at 8

I have used a compressor at the front end going into a tube screamer with the the overdrive at 11 o’clock.
I have also added a slight chorus to the effects loop Rate is 0.12s, Depth 10.5 ms Mix is 29% wet.

Slight room reverb but not to much.

With the amount of overdrive and distortion I have my noise gate set way up as I want to really cut the sound of after each chord.

Both KK and Glen play almost the same throughout the song, the only differences that I could spot was that Tipton Plays the D chord as a bar chord on the 5th Fret. And in the Pre Chorus he plays the C and The G chord on the 15th fret.
