Anyone have an idea what scales Judas Priest use on the album Painkiller? I'm looking into sweep picking and its my favorite example of it

Well, the big sweep at the beginning of the solo to the song "Painkiller" is just an F# minor arpeggio with weird timing. There are many ways to play it. I just use the box shape and tap.

Glen and K.K. don't really use much theory when writing solos. They just play what sounds good. A lot of their crazy runs are chromatic based or make no theoretical sense at all, but sound awesome. The song Painkiller is mostly in F# minor with a bunch of key changes and chromatic stuff thrown in. They don't try to be all smart about the music, they just try to be badass. And they succeed.
KK stated that it's based around E minor

Im sorry, I just don't see how you could argue that hardcore isn't metal. That just seems arrogant to me.

Yes, its its own kind of metal, but its still metal.
