The Privilege Of Power

by Riot
The Privilege Of Power by Riot
Released: Jan 1990
Label: Epic/Legacy
In retrospect, this reissued 1990 album has to count as one of metal history's stranger keep-up-with-the-times moves: Veteran stadium-boogie screechers see the future of music, so they hire the Tower of Power horns, harmolodic jazz axeman Blood Ulmer and, most significantly, turntable-scratch "Rockit" scientist Grandmixer D.ST. They subject their power thrash to hip-hop pastiche techniques, slipping in interstitial opera arias and Asian woodwinds and populist movie dialogue and news bites from Tiananmen Square. And they cover an Al Di Meola number -- whew!
