Succeeding the weak sales of the album RAM it down, which had been an attempt at reconciliation with the fans after experimental the Turbo, Judas Priest is turned over to its more traditional style of the years 1970 whole while borrowing modern technologies of Speed metal, which involved the acclamations of the public. The album is seen like a disc founder of the speed metal and it strongly influenced the European groups of Power metal like Gamma Ray and Primal Fear.
After the round which followed this album, the singer Rob Halford left the group, while maintaining a contact with the members of Judas Priest throughout the years 1990.
This departure is due to the increasingly strong tensions within the group, generally allotted to the homosexuality of Rob Halford, although this one did not have a so important influence. During the round, in Toronto, Rob had an accident with its Harley-Davidson motor bike on the scene, which took part in the separation of the group. The singer wanted to create a new group, Fight, and succeeds in leaving Judas Priest legally to be able to be authorized to sell his future productions. The other members declared that Judas Priest would not exist any more after the departure of Rob Halford. However, they met a few years later, with the singer Tim " Ripper" Owens.
The PainkillerThe Painkiller (which one can translate, in the context by " the killer of vices" , literal translation being analgesic or calming ) belonged to a series of heroes created by Judas Priest. Painkiller is described like a metal Messiah sent on Earth to destroy the demons and to save the humanity of the destruction. Painkiller is inspired by the fallen angel of the small pocket of the album Sad Wings off Destiny that Judas Priest recorded with its débuts.
The most outstanding feature of Painkiller, in addition to its metal body, is that it leads the " metal monster" , a motor bike with a dragon as frame and two circular saws in the place of the wheels.
