Armored Saint - "The Truth Always Hurts" (live video)

Yes, you should have seen her face Straight out of Peyton Place
Pseudo movie star, total disgrace
Beggin' on her hands and knees
"Won't you just love me please?"
I've got my life to lead, lead yours as well

Beautiful home, white picket fence
The pain starts when the Quaalude ends

Learn to pacify
Then you justify
Never satisfied
The truth always hurts

Well, I woke up in a heavy sweat
Sheets drenched, I was soaking wet
A light bulb in my sleep went off in my head, in my head
Two places at one time
Can't be done by mankind
I hate to say I'm feeling confined

From the top of the world to a sunken ship
No in between
Karma sure can be a frazzled trip

Learn to testify
Can't be rectified
Ain't no lullaby
The truth always hurts
Learn to pacify
Learn to qualify
Always mortified
The truth always hurts
Bet your ass

One day you're king of the world
Then you're knocked off your pedestal

Just been crucified
Harmed and horrified
Ain't no alibi
The truth always hurts
Time to occupy
Simply no denying
Better say goodbye
The truth always hurts
Learn to pacify
Then you justify
Never satisfied
The truth always hurts

The story goes on and on and on
Somebody else will be a victim
The end is here
It's a fact of life, the truth always hurts

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.”»
