Battle of the bands

Two bands who played classic style metal, but perhaps neither ever got the recognition that they deserved.

Armored Saint


Grim Reaper

***Which band do you prefer?

It's fairly close and maybe not totally fair with Armored Saint having over twice as many releases if you count the live EP. Still I have always liked Armored Saint just a little more.

I go with Armored Saint, but I like both bands a lot. I never saw Grim Reaper live, but I did see Armored Saint open for Metallica in 1985 and they were very good. Kudos to the Saints coming out to do security for Metallica after the original security guys bailed out because the crowd was too insane. Very wild show!

I'll take Armored Saint if for no other reason than Steve Grimmett's voice was just hard to take. He's actually been a much better singer on his recent material than he ever was with GR.

Damn, I love them both. Saint is the better band but I spent so many nights in the 80s spinning Grim Reaper

mmm... this is a hard choice... I like both of them, it's quite a tie
But if I must say only one, I say Grim Reaper: See You in Hell is a great song!
