CD Reviews

John Bush's group before Anthrax...
Lunar Strain | United States | 01/11/2005

"...sadly this is how a lot of people remember Armored Saint today. I too thought of the group this way as I actually heard John Bush with Anthrax before I knew of Armored Saint. I loved his vocals so I decided to purchase an album from his "old band" to see what it was like. Low and behold our local CD store had a deluxe 3 disc edition of Symbol of Salvation for sale for a cheap price of $15. I quickly picked it up. Wow, I wasn't just impressed...I was blown away. Symbol of Salvation is just an amazing album with smart lyics and great vocals. After hearing Salavation, I find it a shame that Armored Saint is now mostly remembered as "John Bush's group before Anthrax" as they are a super talented band that should be remembered more than just that. I have since bought every Saint album and have actually learned to like the band even better than Bush's Anthrax outings. So if your Anthrax fan and are deciding on whether or not to purchase some Armored Saint...DO, especially this awsome 3 disc edtion of Symbol of Salvation. If your gonna remaster a disc, this is the way to do it! Two extra cds of demos and interviews...I must be in heaven!"
Simply Amazing!!

"It is so nice to see a re-release of Armored Saint's best work. The remaster is crisp and loud, and just a superb transfer to listen to.

The big shocker is Disc #2, which contains the demos for most of the songs contained on SOS. The late Dave Prichard's guitar work is incredible. The quality is better than most live discs out there today. There is a raw, gritty, and heartfelt vibe to the entire thing; which breathes new life into these great songs.
This is a great buy for any Armored Saint fan, as well as for anybody needing lessons when it comes to what Old School Heavy Metal was (and is) all about. Cheers!!"

"I only discovered Armored Saint by another reviewers comments and like alot of my purchases the reviewer was spot on. This Cd rocks from start to finish and I would highly recommend this cd to everyone into the voice of John Bush who I think should have stuck with this band as they are I think a level above Athrax and would have been huge."
