I am wondering if anyone out there can help me out on this. I've heard Armored Saint a time or two on Dee's House Of Hair, but I am unfamiliar with them. Are they pretty good? If I were to get an album, what would be the disc of choice by you people out there? Thanks.

AS are an acquired taste. Most of their albums have 3-4 really good tunes but the rest is filler. Their 1991 album, Symbol of Salvation, is the exception in which all of the songs are brilliant. SOS is one of if the BEST metal albums of the 90's.

AS reformed and put out a reunion album but it pretty much sucked. David Pritchard (RIP) was the soul of the band.

DB, the Saint are an awesome band who have never ever made a bad album. They aren't the heaviest band on the planet, but they're still straight ahead, no bullsh*t, in-your-face metal. Here are a list of their albums, going from, IMHO, their best to worst (actually, they've never made a bad album):

Delirious Nomad
Symbol of Salvation
Revelation
Raising Fear
Saints Will Conquer
March of the Saint

Plus, I met them after a show in Virginia last year, and they're a great buncha guys.

Armored Saint is an AWESOME band. Their Symbol Of Salvation album is a classic the same caliber as Maiden's Piece Of Mind, Dio's Holy Diver, and Priest's Screaming For Vengeance!

Their "reunion" album, Revelation, is almost as good, but not quite.

Their first three albums were all good, and each one was better than the one before (overall).

IMO Delirious Nomad is one of the best metal albums of all time. A must have!

Hey my first post on the new board.

Anyway, I love AS, I really like SOS and Revelations the best. The rest of the stuff I don't listen to as much but it's still pretty good. I'd go with SOS first if you can find it.
