Turbo is a 1986 album by Judas Priest, an English heavy metal band. The album marked a change in the band’s sound, as they incorporated synthesizers and a more commercial glam metal style. The album was originally intended to be a double album called Twin Turbos, but the idea was scrapped and some of the songs were used as bonus tracks for later remasters. Turbo was a success, reaching No. 17 on the Billboard 200 and No. 33 on the UK Albums Chart. It was also certified platinum in the US and Canada. The album spawned three singles: Turbo Lover, Locked In and Parental Guidance.

The album Turbo was recorded in Ibiza, Spain, and produced by Tom Allom, who had previously worked with the band on their previous four albums. The album’s title was inspired by the turbocharger that was fitted to the band’s tour bus, which allowed it to travel up to 140 miles per hour.

  • Rob Halford – lead vocals
