Genocide, released in 2000, is another compilation consisting of the first two Judas Priest albums, Rocka Rolla and Sad Wings of Destiny. Like several others in the past, Genocide was released under the label Gull, in an effort to "capitalize on Judas Priest's popularity." Judas Priest's management firmly states that people should not buy these compilations, because even though it would seem like a new album on the surface, it's just a re-issue of material already recorded.
