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 the opening track on British heavy metal band Judas Priest's 1990 album, Painkiller, and was released as the first single off the album later that year. The song is written in E minor, but the key signature changes during the guitar solos. The first guitar solo in the song, which alternates between the keys of F minor and C minor, is played by Glenn Tipton. The second, also in F minor, is played by K. K. Downing

Judas Priest finally released Painkiller on September 3rd, 1990. It was an instant classic. The band came roaring back into the heavy metal universe with perhaps its heaviest release yet. Painkiller was a speed metal masterpiece, and its take no prisoners style was very influential over the next decade and a half, especially to German power metal bands such as Primal Fear and Gamma Ray. Unlike in previous albums, every song is strong on Painkiller. If Painkiller had a weak point, it would be the lyrics that were put together for the album's songs. Judas Priest has never been known for writing deep or introspective lyrics, but what you'll find on Painkiller is some of the worst of their career.

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.
