I do love that cover as well. I'm not sure if it's better than the original (The original rules!), but excellent version indeed.
Have you heard Exciter cover from Gutrix (band with Hank Shermann and Bjarne T. Holm)? That Priest cover also rules. :cool:

I stumbled across that Priest tribute album by accident when it came out.  The whole album has a bunch of good Priest covers.  Helloween - Electric Eye, MF - Ripper, Testament - Rapid Fire.  Back before the album came out I always dreamed of King covering a Priest song.  \m/
