Turbo 30

Heavy metal was kicking into various new gears as we began writing sessions for Turbo - True to form the sense of exploring different sounds and textures led us - cool guitar and bass inventions triggered fresh ideas kicking off in Marbella, Spain we laydown the blueprint and tones and continued writing in Phoenix. Tracking and further embellishments were completed in the Bahamas, Miami and LA - Tom Allom was at the production helm once again giving us direction and steering us along - We had a lot of material, so much so that there was a strong feeling of making a Twin Turbo release. The final outcome showed Priest in a different light and one that surprised many but as we have always been true to our own metal hearts we felt good about the album - The title track became a signature song along with the video and today sounds stronger than ever live. "Out In The Cold"'s bluesy vibe and emotion set original bars that were raised - "Parental Guidance" made reference to the censorship struggle in the United States. Fantasy elements took a back seat this time around - All in all Turbo is a reflection on the metal scene as we saw and felt it at that time and a record we look back on and celebrate now with fondness and a mixture of memories
