Armored Saint Biography (Wikipedia)
Armored Saint is an American heavy metal band, formed in 1982 in Los Angeles, California. Since 1990, the band has consisted of John Bush on vocals, Joey Vera on bass, Jeff Duncan on guitar and the Sandoval brothers Gonzo and Phil on guitar and drums respectively. To date, they have released seven studio albums, one EP, one live album and one compilation album.
As one of the leaders of the Los Angeles heavy metal scene, Armored Saint achieved moderate success in the mid-to-late 1980s with their first three studio albums. Prior to the release of their fourth studio album Symbol of Salvation (1991), the band was plagued by extended inactivity, due to record company issues and the death of their original guitarist Dave Pritchard, who died of leukemia in 1990. Armored Saint eventually broke up when Bush joined Anthrax in 1992 to replace Joey Belladonna, but reunited in 1999, and has continued to tour and record since then.
