This album took me by surprise from the first few seconds. I'm amongst the younger metal fans, but i definitely know whats good when i hear it. And i truely believe that one of the only true metal albums better than this may be master of puppets. This is so much more than slamming drums and crunching guitars, very much like master of puppets it has an essence that has to be experienced to be believed. It disgusts me to see how some of the mediocre bands have succeed in making a name for themselves, while masterpieces like this pass us by like a stranger in the night. Anybody who wants an even semi-complete collection must own this at all costs.

One of the best groups of the 80's if not the most unreconized and unheard of act's.Sadly this group disbanded shortly after their guitarist Dave Prichard passed away from Leukemia at a very young age. This is their second studio album and has a very crunchy and tight sound. The title track is great as well as long before i die,In the hole, over the edge and aftermath.If you like metal give this band a try. you wont be dissapointed. No joke, Dont listen to your friends who only listen to mainstream/billboard metal/rock.Give The saint a try. P.S. These boy's in concert could blow any band off the stage.The music will live on.

So what exactly makes a great Metal album? Is it complexity and intensity of "Master of Puppets", the sheer brutality of Slayer's "Reign in Blood", or the bump and grind of Aerosmith's "Rocks"? Whatever the secret is, Armored Saint found that magic combination and then some with their masterpiece, "Delirious Nomad". From the opening riff of "Long Before I Die" to John Bush's laugh towards the end of "Released", this is one of those albums that has all of the essentials to make a classic: incredible songs, soaring guitar work by the late Dave Prichard, a rock solid rhythm section, and one of the best lead singers ever in John Bush. Without a doubt, it is one of those albums for the ages.

I can`t think of a better way to explain what heavy metal is to a heathen than making them listen to this record.
Armored Saint roll like there is no tomorrow, their riffistic, dramatic, heavy metal prowess wasting no time in making your head bang. Leaving aside individually stellar performances by bassist Vera, singer Bush (both of them on the road to fame and fortune with other outfits thereafter) and the much missed Pritchard on heavy metal guitar, what strikes us is 1) the great production courtesy of Max Norman and 2) how advanced the band`s composition skills were. Seriously, these guys had progmetal down to the nines already in the second half of the 80s (check out the impressive Aftermath).
A stellar release no doubt, while mass distribution eluded the band they remain a fan favorite, their legacy and sheer excellence confirmed by the fact that Anthrax and Fates Warning feeded upon the band to strengthen themselves in the nineties. Raise a glass to the Saint!

I musy say that listening to this great metal record harkens me back to when I got to see Armored Saint Live. The first time was with Metallica and WASP. Then another time (gulp) with Styper. Never really got why they wanted to tour with them other than a large crowd. BUT>>the tour I wish they had made a DVD of was the tour with Helloween. If anyone knows how to get a good copy of this concert which was broadcast live on MTV's original Headbangers Ball let me know. Email me at c_robleski@hotmail.com

This was their best CD and now is tough to find. Great tracks like 'Long Before I Die', 'Over The Edge' and 'Your Never Alone' amongst others.
There are no throw outs. A very consistant listen for a band who never really had much of an idenity, just a lot of really good songs.
I would also recommend 'Raising Fear' and their debut 'March Of The Saint' if anyone cares anymore..

Originally released in 1986, Delirious Nomad was the second full-length album from Armored Saint, one of the earliest and longest-lasting bands of the "Metal Massacre" West Coast heavy metal scene. For their second outing (and first without founding guitarist Phil Sandoval), the band enlisted producer Max Norman (Ozzy, Y&T, Savatage) to help give the album the more metal edge they felt March of the Saint lacked.

To be honest, as much as I love Armored Saint, Delirious Nomad is probably my least favorite of their albums (well, I'm still not sure about La Raza). For some reason it just never clicked with me. It's still a very solid heavy metal album, and fits the overall Armored Saint style, but unlike March of the Saint (production issues aside) and Raising Fear, there just aren't any great songs that stay with me. They're all good songs, but nothing I find myself thinking about later. Still, even an average Armored Saint album is going to be better than most other bands on their best day, and Delirious Nomad does deliver some very impressive guitar work courtesy of the late Dave Pritchard (RIP), killer rhythms and of course John Bush's unique and hyper-energetic vocals.

It may not be my favorite Armored Saint album, and it's certainly not the all-time classic
