In the follow-up to his Judas Priest: Decade of Domination book, which looked
at the band’s career from inception through the Defenders of the Faith album
of 1984, Martin Popoff now tackles the band’s incendiary “hair metal” years
through to the triumphant return to form that is 2018’s Firepower.
In between, Popoff tackles the live albums, Glenn Tipton’s solo excursion,
Fight, Two and Halford… all that good stuff that resulted from the Metal God’s
split with the band before his celebrated return to the throne.
Turbo, Ram It Down, Painkiller, Jugulator, Demolition, Angel of Retribution,
Nostradamus, Redeemer of Souls, Firepower… this is the story of nine records
all quite different from each other, and all the details an’ tales in between.
What results is the story of more than 30 years of Priest history, including
the making of 1990’s Painkiller, a record considered by a younger generation
of Priest fans to be the greatest slammin’ collection of metal anthems the
band ever concocted and rocked.
Judas Priest: Turbo ‘til Now includes extensive colour commentary from
Popoff’s many chats over the decades with those who were there, including Rob
Halford, Glenn Tipton, K.K. Downing, Ian Hill, Scott Travis, Ripper Owens and
Richie Faulkner, along with producers Tom Allom, Chris Tsangarides and Roy Z.
The result is the most in-depth examination of Judas Priest’s late ‘80s to
present-day output ever attempted.
