If I answered your question, it wouldn't really help you. I mean, you will need to ask a similar question in the future if you don't understand why the song is in the key it is in.

So listen to the song, use your ears. Figure out the chords. Which of them sounds like the "home chord"? That's your tonic, that's your key.

If you can't figure out the chords, just listen to the notes. Try to play different notes over it and find the note that sounds like "home".

^What he said. Also learn your scale shapes and you'll be able to tell pretty easily from the notes in the riffs and solos.

But also, same key as every Judas Priest song.

One of them's in A minor

I am actually kidding, I love Judas Priest, and the song's in E minor
