Long Live David Prichards Spirit!
The Phil | Harper Woods, MI. United States | 07/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Raising Fear is a must have for any Armored Saint fan. This is the last studio album featuring the talented David Prichard before he tragically died. His best guitar work is on this one. Most of the songs are great on this cd. The highlights are the Legacy, Human Vulture, Raising Fear, and Book of Blood, though the remake of Saturday Night Special is pretty weak. I am lucky enough to own one of Dave's Old marshall amplifiers and I love playing along with this cd. So pick it up. It's good!"
My Thoughts on Raising Fear

"I bought this on cassette while on a family vacation in 1987 when I was 13 years old. It was one of the best purchasing decisions of my young life. Pulling double duty as rhythm and lead, guitarist Dave Prichard (who sadly passed away in 1990) excels in both roles, Joey Vera's fluid basslines are sublime, and John Bush's throaty delivery was never more inspiring, before or since. What's more, they create a sound in this album that has stood the test of time, as twenty years later it still sounds vital. I know a lot of Saints' fans give the nod to March of the Saint or Delirious Nomad, but for my money this is the best Saint album on record. And, though it shares stiff competition from the likes of Master of Puppets and Reign in Blood, Raising Fear also gets my vote as one of the essential metal albums of the 1980s. For the song "Book of Blood" alone, this album deserves a place on every hard music lover's shelf."
