Rising in the East is a live DVD of Judas Priest, released on 15 November 2005, performing a concert in Tokyo's Nippon Budokan, filmed on 19 May 2005. It is the first straight-to-DVD release. In unconfirmed reports, the DVD was to be pushed back to January 2006, but other sources still listed the release date for 15 November 2005. com showed a cover image that was completely different than what is displayed.

Unleashed in the East is the first live album by the British heavy metal band Judas Priest, released in September 1979 on Columbia Records. It was recorded live over two nights in Tokyo during their Hell Bent for Leather Tour in February 1979. Upon release Unleashed became the band's best-selling album up to that point, reaching the US Top 100 and the UK Top Ten, eventually the album became one of the five Judas Priest albums to gain a RIAA platinum certification

Since Judas Priest maintain a huge following in Japan (due in large part to their classic live album, Unleashed in the East) the band decided to film their two shows at Tokyo’s Nippon Budokan arena. Rising is comprised of one complete show, from a dark stage to the band’s final bow. Lead guitarist Glen Tipton explained, We filmed both nights but we ended up using the second night only for this DVD. We wanted it to be as live and as real as possible. They certainly nailed the real feeling. Rising is one of the best-filmed live DVD’s you’re likely to find

Priest always had a massive following in the Land of the Rising Sun (especially with their 1979 set, Unleashed in the East), which they still retain to this day, as evidenced by this set recorded at the famed Budokan. The focus of Rising in the East is wisely on the classics - "Electric Eye," "Metal Gods," "Victim of Changes," "Hell Bent for Leather," - but there are several pleasant surprises here.

Rising in the East" was recorded live in May 2005 at the legendary Budokan in Tokyo, Japan.

Rising in the East' is Judas Priest's first straight-to-DVD release. Sound: PCM Stereo; Dolby Digital . ; DTS. Recording information: Recorded on 1. 5. 2005 at the Budokan in Tokyo, Japan.

Rising In The East' is Judas Priest's first straight-to-DVD release. We talked about doing a DVD on this tour and we decided to do it at the Budokan because it's a special venue. Japan has been an incredibly important part of Judas Priest's career. The band's first-ever live album, 1979's 'Unleashed In The East (Live In Japan),' was recorded in the "Land of the Rising Sun," so it's only fitting that the eagerly awaited 'Rising In The East' DVD originate from there too. "Judas Priest was one of the first bands to invade that country with metal," Halford says. Even though we made the DVD in Japan, it really represents the relationship that Judas Priest has with fans around the world
