Armored Saint - "Symbol of Salvation" (live video)

Go ahead
Tell me what you plan to be
The future
Go ahead
Tell me what you plan to see
The future

I've been waiting here for you all
What took you so long
Symbol of salvation

Who's the symbol of Salvation
What's the symbol of Salvation

Is honesty truly another word
For justice
Honesty is truly another slur
On justice

I've been waiting here for you all
What took you so long
Symbol of salvation

Who's the symbol of Salvation
What's the symbol of Salvation

Hear the knave
With information
With a knave
Is wrong direction
No it's not the
Symbol of salvation

Follow my lead
I'll show you the way
For the future
Follow my lead
We'll digest world decay
For the future

I've been waiting here for you all
What took you so long

Symbol of salvation
Who's the symbol of Salvation
What's the symbol of Salvation

Ο δίσκος των Armored Saint "Symbol of Salvation live"
Στο ξεκίνημα της δεκαετίας του ενενήντα ολοκληρώθηκε ο πρώτος (άκρως επιτυχημένος - καλλιτεχνικά τουλάχιστον) κύκλος των Armored Saint. Το 1991 κυκλοφόρησε το τέταρτο album της Αμερικάνικης μπάντας υπό τον τίτλο "Symbol of Salvation".

Ο νέος κύκλος έκανε εννέα χρόνια να "ανοίξει" (βλ. τον δίσκο "Revelation" που "βγήκε" το 2000). Το "Symbol of Salvation" ήταν αφιερωμένο στον (εκ των ιδρυτών της μπάντας) Dave Prichard που απεβίωσε τον Φεβρουάριο του 1990 (από λευχαιμία).

Στον εν λόγω δίσκο συμμετέχει στην σύνθεση εννέα τραγουδιών, ενώ η τελευταία του ηχογράφηση με τους Armored Saint ήταν το σόλο του κομματιού "Tainted Past". Τον προσεχή Οκτώβριο οι Armored Saint θα τιμήσουν την τριακοστή επέτειο με την κυκλοφορία του "ζωντανά" ηχογραφημένου / φιλμογραφημένου δίσκου "Symbol of Salvation Live".

Τις λεπτομέρειες μας τις δίνει το δελτίο τύπου της εταιρείας τους:

«There are many ways to celebrate the anniversary of an important release in a band’s career, and for Symbol Of Salvation‘s thirtieth birthday - an album vocalist John Bush refers to as Armored Saint‘s “cornerstone record” - comes Symbol Of Salvation Live.

A combination live album and video of the band playing the album in its entirety at New York’s famed Gramercy Theatre during their 2018 tour, it captures the power, diversity and peerless songwriting contained within it. “I felt like showing ‘Symbol‘ in another light was a great homage to the record itself,” states bassist Joey Vera.

Also, having all the fans be there and part of that event is a way for us to say ‘Thank you!’ For, without them, we can’t do any of this in the first place.”As an extra bonus, the vinyl and digital versions of the record contain five demo tracks from the Symbol Of Salvation writing sessions with Dave Prichard, which have never been released on that format.

They’re songs that didn’t make the record, however, there still is a vibe to those tunes, plus Dave’s playing is on them, so that makes them special,” says Bush. These tracks make for welcome additions, helping to further celebrate the record, and the band are just happy and respectful of the fact they have reached this anniversary.

If you would have told me thirty years ago that we’d be talking about this today, I would have told you that you were crazy,” Vera says.

All we’ve ever wanted was to make our own music, to take joy and take pride in doing it. The fact that we also have very loyal fans who continue to support what we do is the best icing on this cake. I try to look at our records as objectively as possible, and when I can do that, I’m very proud that this record is a huge part of the band’s legacy, and I am extremely humbled that I’m a part of that.”»

  1. Έχω γενικότερα ένα θέμα με όλα αυτά τα επετειακά επανακυκλοφορίες, επανεκδόσεις, λάιβ κλπ αν και υπεραγαπώ Armored Saint και Symbol of Salvation που τον θεωρώ ως τον τελευταίο μεγάλο δίσκο τους.
