I hate so much the waiting between the albums, and in the case of Armored Saint I hate it even more, nine years between Symbol Of salvation and Revelation, and now 10 years for this new one La Raza. Hey people, the word hate is only for the waiting, because I love Armored Saint more than myself.... So let's starts with this new CD!!!!
10 years after (not the band..hahahahahah) Revelation John Bush, Joey Vera, the Sandoval brothers Gonzo and Phil and Jeff Duncan give us La Raza, a CD that sounds odd, because it's not the 80's sound or anything that reminds tha old Armored Saint, it sounds more mature and so... 70's!!! Yes, one more time Armored Saint go against all the trends and follow only their brains and hearts.... Finally a band with guts!!! Can you imagine in 2010 that use theramin or percussions??? (Okay, Tesla) And like always there's the voice of John Bush, trademark for Armored Saint that now re-joins Anthrax for a summer tour (please John, they don't deserve you, so remain with your friends!!!) with the big four of thrash metal, wonderful as always and in particular on the opening track Loose Cannon and Little Monkey!!!
This time 70's atmospheres is possible to hear in Chilled, La Raza and Black Feet.
In conclusion for me another wonderful comeback for these Los Angeles guys, another demonstration of intelligence, integrity and music good taste!!!!
Saints will conquer! Are you with us???
