Great old school orange county hardcore band
Joe S. | Chicago | 06/10/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A very good band in the old California scene (with the likes of the Circle Jerks, Lost Cause, Black Flag, Suicidal Tendencies, etc. etc.) There sound is great, mixed up with a little bit of a rock and roll influence that the Hardcore scene of today has left out. They even pay homage to the Great Motorhead, and one of the reviews before mine was right they do it better than them. They have a lot of passion and anger put into there music with out the need write lyrics that sound "tough". They were the best Hardcore band out of California in 80's scene in my opinion. Throw these guys into the basket of under rated old hardcore bands with the likes of Articles of Faith, Negative Approach, Die Kreuzen, the Nihilistics, and so many more. Black Flag, the Dead Kennedys werent everything back then."

"Battalion of Saints...MotorHead would be proud of the "BATS" cover version of "The Ace of Spades"... in fact; even they would probably admit that it's better than their original version. Battalion of Saints...So much TALENT, so much RAW ENERGY...and so much PASSION for exposeing the ugly little truths in life that when you listen to them you'd swear you were in the studio during one of their recording sessions.In fact...they're so REAL, you'd swear your ears are about to bleed!SO! Thank the Industry for still printing their PASSION! Now I can finally retire my vinyl of "The Second Comming" as it's mixed into this re-release...YOU WILL LOVE THIS STUFF! and I can use my "old record" as traceing paper!."
Great SAN DIEGO hardcore band.
John G. Gibson | Outer Islands, HI | 12/12/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The biggest and best out of the early San Diego scene- ever present throughtout the early days and easily the hardest charging and most diligent of any San Diego punk band to date. Agreed they could back it up- there was no empty talk with this crew and it shows in the sincerety and outright hard edged, angry punk rock. By the late eighties after tons of lineups they'd pretty well been all over the map and had shown that San Diego could spawn a punk band that could drive legendary bands like Discharge and SS Decontrol step it up a notch. Completely sincere and slamming the point home every time- these guys completely personify the early days of Southern California hardcore. If you don't have the Fighting boys E.P. and second coming, your collection is incomplete."
