''Ram It Down'' is the 11th studio album recorded and released by Judas Priest, which was released in 1988. ''Ram It Down'' was remastered in 2001, with two live tracks added.

In 1986, Judas Priest intended to record a double album called ''Twin Turbos'' of which half would be lighter, more commercial rock, and the other half would be similarly polished but heavier and less synth-driven. As it happened, record labels being notoriously timid about double albums, the project was split into two releases, with the heavier ''Twin Turbos'' material being relegated to this later album. While it largely failed to capture the metal public's approval, elements such as the more technical drumming, high speeds, and sci-fi themes prefigured their return-to-form classic, ''Painkiller''. Judas Priest had also done a rendition of ''Chuck Berry's'' "Johnny B. Goode" for the movie ''Johnny Be Good'', which was the only single from this album. This would be the final album involving long-time drummer Dave Holland and producer Tom Allom. Allom would later return as co-producer to the 2009 live release A Touch of Evil: Live.

The epic song "Blood Red Skies" has been described by Glenn Tipton as "Victim of Changes model 1988". - Wikipedia
