ARMORED SAINT – Symbol of Salvation Toronto (Concert Review)

ARMORED SAINT – Symbol of Salvation Toronto (Concert Review)

OMG! I’ve finally seen the light! The salvation I suppose one could say. It’s taken awhile but it finally happened. The albums never famously got along with me.

I mean, how can you go wrong with a vocalist like…

ARMORED SAINT – Carpe Noctum (Album Review)

To my way of thinking, live albums can be placed in one of three categories: the good, the bad and the ugly. There is absolutely nothing that compares to the live concert experience. The excitement of those around you feeds your own as you listen to your favorite music at loud volumes while enjoying the showmanship of the band. So many artists attempt to capture this feeling on recorded material but it is difficult to…

Armored Saint “Win Hands Down” Review

Armored Saint “Win Hands Down” Review

Armored Saint have been around for over 30 years, yet I’ve never really given them a chance. Hell, I only just found out in recent months that John Bush is their vocalist. Some, like myself, may know John as the one-time singer of Anthrax. Those who know Armored Saint know the two bands are not very similar. Anthrax being veterans in the field of thrash metal, Armored Saint have made a career of making metal…

I was able to happen across a couple of CD stores selling used products however there was absolutely nothing resembling a bargain to be had anywhere. I observed that there seemed to be absolutely no discernible respect for…
