Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Includes digital download. Ram It Down is the 11th studio album by Judas Priest, released in 1988 through Columbia Records. The album earned gold certification on 18 July 1988. The band toured in Europe and North America to support the release of the album. This is the last album to feature long-time drummer Dave Holland. In 1986, Judas Priest intended to release a double album entitled Twin Turbos, of which half would consist of melodic, more commercial hard rock, and the other half would be heavier and less synth-driven. Columbia Records objected to the double album concept, and the project was ultimately split into two separate releases, 1986's Turbo, and 1988's Ram It Down. Ram It Down would be the final Judas Priest album for 30 years recorded with producer Tom Allom. The band recorded a rendition of Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode", intended for inclusion on the soundtrack for the 1988 Anthony Michael Hall comedy film Johnny Be Good; the song found it's way onto Ram It Down and was the album's first single.
