ARMORED SAINT La Raza Limited Gatefold 180gram Vinyl 2LP Set

In October 2009 Los Angeles sons of metal, ARMORED SAINT, entered Tranzformer Studios in Burbank, CA to begin recording the bands 6th fulllength studio album. Tranzformer Studios is owned by Dave Jerdan (Alice in Chains, Janes Addiction) who produced ARMORED SAINTs 1991 classic Symbol of Salvation and Bryan Carlstrom who handled engineering on the same album. The SAINT worked with Bryan Carlstrom who handled engineering duties with the bands very own Joey Vera producing, and both Joey and Bryan mixing the record. Heres what ARMORED SAINT vocalist John Bush had to say about how the new album came together: "About a year and a half or so ago Joey asked me if I'd be interested in writing some songs. I was in the right mind finally, so I said send me something. To be quite honest, I wasn't thinking in terms of ARMORED SAINT but more like just writing rock music. I felt pretty free with that mentality and the ideas felt very organic. With every passing song things improved and next thing we knew we had about eight songs demoed. Although the idea of sparking something completely new was appealing it became clear that if it was Joey and I the reality was, let's not kid ourselves; this is ARMORED SAINT. So here it comes." ARMORED SAINT bassist Joey Vera comments: "John and I began writing over 14 months ago and in the beginning we had only a general musical direction in which we were going. Once we decided to keep writing and with more of an intention of turning it into an ARMORED SAINT project, we were faced with a few questions. One was, how does this new music we're writing fit into the current musical styles of today? And should we care? We quickly answered the latter. We realized we should do what we always did and that is to write good songs, and for ourselves first. We are not unaware of our parameters in which we have created over the past 25 years, but we are also not afraid to take chances and simply do what we do best. The idea of trying to continue where we left off over 10 years ago since our last release is not very appealing to me. I have to let go of what I did in 1991 and in 2000. Nothing at all against what we've recorded in the past but my head is in a different place now. Trust me; I still want to kill your senses with music, but just in a different way."
