Album Notes
SAINT 1982: Richard Lynch and drummer Gene McClindon found themselves band less
and a desire to continue on with the dream of playing Heavy Metal for the Lord.
During this time Richard was writing material for a new LP and seized the name
SAINT. Gene contacted a friend he new who was to play guitar and could sing aswell, his name Josh Kamer. Josh was a great guitarist and had quite the voice. They
played an audition in LA for Steve Archer but were told to practice and maybe
some other time. Richard told them there would be no other time for them and they
left. This is when the idea of there own label was birthed.
1984 Born was the new label Rotton Records and the EP "Warriors of the Son."
John Mahan returns and two years of musical drummers start, too many to name.
1986 the band signs a contract with Pure Metal and releases its 2nd LP "Time's End.
With drummer Mike Lowery out of the band just one week before recording, Brian
Willis is then hired (on loan from the band Quarter Flash)
1989 Too Late For Living is released, guitarist Dee Harrington and Drummer John
Perine join the effort. The band is now on an all time roll and mysteriously folds???
1998 Richard Lynch and Dee Harrington regroup with singer Tim Lamberson
and put out the EP "The Perfect Life" then...in 2003 Josh Kramer was contacted by Richard Lynch they added new guitarist Jerry Johnson and returned to their
traditional metal roots. In 2004 Saint releases thier new CD "In The Battle"



to write a review

Ethan Vinetal

Saint lives again!
Excellent guitar-riffin' metal with lead vox metal-fan-tastic! Sound is quite like "Time's End" and "Too Late
for Livin'." If you enjoyed the original Saint ... you
will love this CD!


Classic Metal
On "In The Battle", Salem, Oregon based Saint returns with its first full length studio release in fifteen years. After getting started in 1984 with a low budget six song EP entitled "Warriors Of The Son", Saint signed to Pure Metal Records and followed up two years later with its full length debut "Time's End". While a bit rough around the edges production wise, "Time's End" showcased the significant growth and maturity gained by the band in terms of its songwriting skills. Saint did not reach its artistic pinnacle, however, until 1988 with "Too Late For Living", a work of art combining perhaps the bands strongest group of songs with nothing less than a stellar production job. Saint briefly reunited in 1999 for a six song EP entitled "The Perfect Life" that, disappointingly, moved in a commercial hard rock direction while failing to include original vocalist Josh Kramer. "In The Battle", on the other hand, finds Saint returning to its classic metal roots of the eighties in addition to welcoming Josh Kramer back into the fold.

Josh Kramer has done nothing but improve over the years, his voice still coming across with the same powerful and commanding Halford-like presence. Founding member bassist Richard Lynch and drummer Larry London form a tight sounding rhythm section. Guitarist Jerry Johnson contributes a heavy duty rhythm guitar sound in addition to a profusion of razor sharp lead guitar work.


Great classic metal!!!!
Saint had been out of the loop for a few years, so their fans were excited to hear about the new CD. This CD is what made me a fan and has made me go back and really listen to their previous works. If you like bands in the vein of Judas Priest, then Saint will be right up your alley. GET THIS CD!!!
