British metal legends Judas Priest announce the reissue of their 10th studio album, Turbo.

The album has been remastered and will be released via Sony Music on February 3rd, 2017 on 3 CD (the original album and two bonus discs) as well as 1LP 150g vinyl.

Originally released in 1986, Turbo features all the hallmarks of classic Priest on tracks such as Turbo Lover, Parental Guidance and Locked In. Included on disc 2 and 3 of the CD reissue is, previously unreleased, Live in Kansas City, a live recording from the band’s 1986 Fuel For Life tour in support of Turbo.

The band add “The 80’s is considered to have been the best decade for heavy metal – Judas Priest roared through it and at the half way point went into unchartered territory with Turbo. Always believing that metal should have no boundaries, Priest challenged themselves taking on board new technical inventions to create fresh ideas and push their sound forward. The combined songs show another side of Priest’s range of creativity that captures a theme and energy infused with the over the top sensibilities of that era. The Fuel For Life tour certainly encapsulated the decadence of the times! Turbo remastered and accompanied by a pedal to the metal live recording from Kansas reveals Priest on high octane – raising fists and devil horns to the next level.”

  1. Back in high school, my band opened may a battle of the bands with The Hellion into Electric Eye. Still great songs. “Up here in space, I’m looking down on you,..”

    1. T,

      To this day, Screaming For Vengeance, is, hands down, my favorite album. It never gets old, or sounds dated, to me.

      D 🙂

  2. I know that for a lot of Judas Priest fans, this album does not rank highly compared to other Priest albums. It took me a while to get used to it, but I like some of the songs on it. I already have the remastered version of this album, but I will buy this one, too, simply for the live recording…even if it is essentially the same track listing as the album Judas Priest Live. One can never have too much of the mighty Priest…even if it is considered their “glam” phase!! \m/
