I can't be the first to make the connection, assuming there is one, but I didn't see any previous posts. Has anyone noticed that the quotes on the first two Thunderstone cards are from Judas Priest songs?

I.E.

Stone of Mystery: "...and the thunder of the wind shouts back" - is from the song "Grinder"

Stone of Agony: "...thunderbolts from hell, shattering aloud." - is from the song "Riding on the Wind"

As a metal fan, I could hear Rob Halford's voice saying those lyrics as I read the cards. surprise Any comment from anyone from AEG? Maybe some Priest fans in the house?

It looks like the newer Thunderstone cards either don't have quotes or are not from songs (at least any that I am familiar with). Do I smell a cease-and-desist letter? zombie

Just wondering if I'm imagining this or not

I did not know that (I'm clearly not a very good metalhead), but I vaguely recall something about the quotes from the Thunderstones being able to be put together and form a prophecy of some sort.

I've actually never bothered reading those texts from the thunderstone cards as of yet.
If I find anything of interest, I'll edit this


-edit- well I googled some of the other phrases because nothing screamed out to me, and well.... nothing came up on google either.
So I guess there's two JP quotes and that's it.
Cool that they are, though.
