Painkiller is the twelfth studio album by British heavy metal band Judas Priest, released in September 1990. It is the last Judas Priest album to feature lead singer Rob Halford until his return for the 2005 album Angel of Retribution and the first to feature drummer Scott Travis. Painkiller is the first Judas Priest album to feature drummer Scott Travis, who replaced long-time drummer Dave Holland in 1989.

painkiller is such a great priest album. and this "we are vinyl" issue LP sounds fantastic. very clear! i highly recommend getting a copy of this on vinyl. i definitely think Painkiller is the heaviest Judas Priest Album. This item: Painkiller.

The title track to Judas Priest’s 1990 album, this song opened the album with a now famous machine gun drum solo, and shows off Rob Halford’s incredible vocal range. The track is one of many by Priest that chronicled the exploits of a fictional eing imagined by the band members. This time, we have some kind of metal angel (riding a motorcyle, of course) that’s going to save mankind from destruction. The album was one of Priest’s thrashiest offerings, and included several tracks that came to be considered classics in heavy metal music  . That statement that ‘He is the Painkiller’ – you get 30,000 metalheads chanting it at a festival and it’s a great feeling. It’s become a very important song for Priest, and for metal too, I think.

All those changes come into sharp focus as soon as the title cut of Painkiller starts - Travis' thunderous (and crisp-sounding) percussive maelstrom lights an immediate fire under the bandmembers' asses; Glenn Tipton and . Downing tear through a crushing, diabolical riff; and Rob Halford starts shrieking like a wicked witch, giving perhaps the most malevolent-sounding performance of his.

Notes

The track order on the cassette differs from the one listed in the J-card. "Night Crawler" and "Metal Meltdown" order is reversed, with the latter being the first track on side B rather than the final track on side A.
The final track - "One Shot At Glory" is shorter and fades out before the actual ending of the song.
