This re-issue of the Armored Saint retrospective has been updated to include new interviews, upgraded sound, more rare clips and unseen videos by this underrated band.

From the vintage early '80s clips of them in their Road Warrior meets Excalibur outfits to the power-metal era of Raising Fear to the post Dave Prichard Symbol of Salvation era, this comprehensive documentary covers it all. You get all the videos, including the hilariously cheesy "Can You Deliver," plus some choice live clips of the band in action. Best of all is a clip of them from their first ever gig at Billy Barty's Roller Rink. Amazingly, even back then, they still smoked.

Current interviews with the band from their Revelation reunion tour help catch fans up with what the guys have been doing (Well, we all know John Bush is in Anthrax, but many may not know what a prolific producer bassist Joey Vera is) and put their music in context. It's also quite fun to see the original interviews the band did when this was first released on VHS in the earl '90s versus their current looks and personalities. Let's just say everyone is a bit mellower and a little less stoned… a little…

More than anything this collection just reminds fans what a great band these guys are and how many solid songs they have amassed over the last coupla decades. Can they deliver? Fuck yeah, they can.
