Love that set. Some filler, but also lots of cool bands who sadly never even put out an album (Decry, Angora, Virgin, Sin, Tommi Gunn)

I got this when it came out back in 2005. It's a cool boxset and I need to revisit it!

Ditto. I picked it up about a year ago, and I definitely need to give it a fresh spin. There's some nice rarities in there.

Why do I have the feeling that you buy every single release out there? Razz

He's picking up the slack since the music industry took a massive hit when Eyesore started spitting out kids. Someone had to fill that void.

I'm listening to this set in work, so I don't have the booklet in front of me to check. Disc 1, track 13:

Quote :
Armoured Saint - No Reason To Live

Is this an unreleased track? I'm certain I've never heard it before and it doesn't seem to appear on any of their releases that I can find.

Anyone know the story of this song?

It's from their 1982 demo and it was also on the Nod To The Old School compilation from 2000. When Metal Blade reissued their 1983 EP on vinyl a couple of years ago, they included that track as well.

Yup, I just discovered it on the Metal Archives page from their demo tape. It's never shown up elsewhere right? So for all you "Armoured" Saint completists, this box set is the only way to find that track on cd.

Go get this set. It's so good. Do it now!

I too nabbed this a half dozen years back on a clearance sale.

Certainly a cool compilation for sure. Would like to get the book and video.

Not on my copy it's not. Unless your talking about an import version or something. There's a bunch of demo songs on there, but 'No Reason To Live' isn't one of them.

You're right! "No Reason To Live" is actually tacked on to the end of Saints Will Conquer as a bonus track. The rest of the original demo is on the 2 disc version of Nod To The Old School.

The EP was re-issued on vinyl in 2012 to include 2 additional tracks 'No Reason" and Stricken By Fate.
