I was a little bored initially but it really developed at the bridge. Good, solid metal tune! \m/

After initially not being pleased with the lyrics of the title track, I've done a 180. I totally get the vibe of what Bush is singing about on this entire record. Really dig it. This is a really great Saint album. Top-half of the catalog for sure. They only have seven studio albums, so this is among the best.

Another deserving band that (how I never knew) kinda flew under the radar and still to this day releases music, tours sporadically and still has it. Great band that deserves to be heard.

A few Fav's:

Reign of fire:

They just may be the most underrated metal band of all time.

Every album and every song kicks ass.

Bush should be up there on the lists with heavy metal greats.  Latest album is very solid.

I think Symbol of Salvation just might be my favorite from the band.  At least neck and neck with March of the Saint.

Not sure what held this band back from only being a B level band.  They had the look and the sound.

I think it was more the glam type metal that was out Ratt, Poison, bands like that. I guess if they dressed like them and had radio friendly material then yeah AS would have been big. But they still rocked it regardless.....

AWESOME news here. It has been a LONG time, since Armored Saint has released a live album package, in fact, they've only ever released one. So the wait is almost over  ;D This is a must get item.

Here's a peak at that new live release, "Aftermath"


http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/armored-saint-releases-aftermath-performance-video/

John and the boys sound great. much better quality than some of the old bootlegs I have. I don't think I've ever ordered anything through pledge music. Guess I'm going to have to now.  8)
