Well there's a few era's. Maybe you would prefer the wino era? Mind you the 1st Self Titled is one of my faves. But id say maybe try Born Too Late? or possibly V. I think liking Saint Vitus depends on whether you like doom metal or not. I can see how they pissed off all the hardcore punks :)

So apparently there is going to be a Vitus reformation show at Roadburn in Holland next year.

That is pretty cool.

Everybody hates it when I say this but my favorite Vitus record is Children of Doom with Christian Lindersson on lead vox. He's got a great voice and there are some really great songs on that album. They never plodded harder than "Planet of Judgement".

Plus Don Dokken produced the album (in a totally weird reverb-drenched way).

I am very tight with Wino (I booked most of the Hidden Hand tours). Love the guy to pieces but I think his era with Vitus was their weakest. The Reagers shit was classic underachiever doom.

Wino's best work was to come later with Spirit Caravan and certain periods of Hidden Hand.

Saint Vitus drummer Armando Acosta died the other week. We have Joe Carducci's remembrance with a lot of details of recording their early albums in the New Vulgate.

its terrific

Algerian Goalkeeper, Tuesday, 8 May 2012 00:20 (1 year ago) Permalink

Its good, but I can't help but feeling slightly disappointed with only 34 minutes and two tracks being just instrumental pieces (good ones at that, mind you, but still).

Finally getting to hear the new record in preparation for seeing them Friday. First off, it sounds amazing. Clarity and heft, and though Wino is way up front as always it doesn't take away the power of the band behind as it does on some of the 80s records. However, there isn't a lot of meat on the bones. A short record, and not incredibly memorable despite being recorded so well. Maybe it'll grow a bit more over time, but I'm a few listens in and waiting for the earworm. I do expect the songs will work well live mixed in with the classic material.

The poor opinions of the rhythm section way upthread do not compute. They slay.

pretty sure one of the verses on the new album's song "bleeding ground" is about chem trails :/

Spirit Caravan were so much better.

Agreed. The Hidden Hand, also, was much stronger musically and lyrically than St Vitus. Wino's other bands essentially do the same thing but better. Especially the lyrics and riffs.

moley, Thursday, 18 October 2012 23:20 (1 year ago) Permalink

Definitely disagree. Vitus trumps all those other bands. CLASSIC.

Just found out there is a tribute band out there named Ain't Vitus. Love both the name and that they exist.
