This was the soundtrack to my youth! I had this on vinyl...(lost it in Hurricane Katrina in NOLA in 2005 - It was autographed by the band when I finally got to see them at Tipitina's in Oct of 1991...) You can not deny the power of the opening song "Lesson Well Learned". When this came out in 1983 this blew our minds! We were instantly hooked. I love this version of "False Alarm" better than the first LP because of the rawness and the great closer of "On the Way" with the lyrics "Sometimes you'll go through hell first, but in end you'll be at Heaven's door" spoke volumes to me in my youth and more so as an adult after trying to rebuild my life after losing everything in that storm. This is a must for any fan of the 1980's metal moment. Armored Saint is one of the greatest exports to ever come out of the L.A. scene. I'm glad that Brian Slagel at Metal Blade took the chance on this great band back then and still backs them up with their current release "La Raza", which rules too!!!

A First!!!!

This was an awesome first. All of us discovering underground music definitely had this. I was a little disappointed by the subsequent releases though. Here’s a little “woe” for everyone. It was rumored in Metal Hammer & Kerrang magazines back then that James Hetfield was seriously thinking of backing off of lead vocals to concentrate on guitar and they were contemplating to have this singer from Armored Saint become the new vocalist for Metallica. This was before Ride The Lightning came out.

Although many associate hard rock from Los Angeles in the early '80s as all glossed up and pop-based (Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Quiet Riot, etc.), there were a select few true metal bands to emerge from the same locale, such as Armored Saint. Formed in 1982 and originally comprising John Bush (vocals), David Pritchard (guitar), Phil Sandoval (guitar), Joey Vera (bass), and Gonzo Sandoval (drums, brother of Phil), the group specialized in a style of straight-ahead metal that was compared to such New Wave...
