Judas Priest brought their 'Epitaph' tour to Cleveland last night (Nov. 15), and we've got some great photos from the band's pummeling, nearly two-and-a-half hour run through the history of heavy metal. Rob Halford and the band were in fine form, with new guitarist Richie Faulkner more than winning over any fans skeptical about him replacing the legendary K.K. Downing.

As you can see from these photos, the new guy seemed pretty damn eager to be in Judas Priest, staying close to the front of the stage all night and interacting with the crowd in a manner that seemed to energize and amuse his veteran bandmates. You can read our full review of the show here.
