CD Review: Armored Saint Gathers Iconic Line-Up For New Live Album

Heavy metal band Armored Saint are celebrating their 35th year of existence with a brand new live album titled "Carpe Noctum." It will be released through Metal Blade Records on February 24th and features the iconic line-up of John Bush, Joey Vera, Phil Sandoval, Gonzo Sandoval and Jeff Duncan. It will be the band's first live album in almost 30 years and includes recordings of their shows from 2015's "Wacken Festival" and their headlining show in Germany.
 
The new eight-song release begins with "Win Hands Down" from Armored Saint's most recent studio album of the same name. Then they dive back to their early days with the intense pace of "March Of The Saint" and "Stricken By Fate." The thunderous rhythm of "Mess" and the electrifying guitar riffs of "Left Hook From Right Field" still shows a band hungry for success. The album closes with the audience singing along to the classic thrash metal sound of "Reign Of Fire."
