You can't keep a good band down, and that's the story that Armored Saint create for us in 2016. For a traditional old school heavy metal band, these guys are really active in the modern day so it shouldn't come as a surprise to us all that they've finally released a live album two decades since the last one 'Saints Will Conquer'. Recorded in 2015 in Germany, the band went out the following year through a crowdsourcing solution to create a live CD based on two shows over there.

The Songs
In December 2016, they have released this on their own steam, but from what I understand their record label Metal Blade, will release this officially in early 2017. Currently it is only available as a digital file, a CD will follow next year. There are only 8 tracks on offer, a good mixture between more recent material such as 'Win Hands Down' which opens the album, and some of the classic tracks from earlier on in their history including 'March Of The Saint', 'Stricken By Fate' and 'Aftermath', which was one of my favourite tracks from the 1985 album 'Delirious Nomad'.

In Summary
The album is really short though, it's only a touch under 40 minutes so there's not a lot here really. But for Armored Saint fans that won't be a show stopper. You should be able to find this as a digital file relatively easily on the Internet, but if you looking for a CD as mentioned earlier, this will be out sometime in February or March 2017.
