Last night, on Thursday, July 13, the esteemed Metal Hall Of Fame proudly welcomed the renowned heavy metal veterans, ARMORED SAINT, at the iconic Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California
The memorable event, expertly hosted by DJ Marci Wiser from 95.5 KLOS, was an extraordinary affair complete with electrifying performances by WEAPONS OF ANEW, Sergio Michel, and DECONSTRUCT. The evening was further elevated by unexpected guest appearances and a mesmerizing all-star jam session.
When the induction was first announced last month, Metal Hall Of Fame founder/CEO Pat Gesualdo said: “ARMORED SAINT have been delivering great metal for decades and we look forwarding to giving them a proper salute this summer, on their home turf of Southern California, at the Whisky A Go Go.”
Wiser commented: “Once they unleashed the crushing riff and vocals of ‘Can U Deliver’ in the 80s, I instantly knew they’d be Hall Of Famers. I’m honored to host the event and I’ll have my horns way up.”
J. Buttermark of FM Music Management stated: “We were honored and excited to be notified about the ARMORED SAINT Metal Hall Of Fame induction. They have been rocking and kicking ass for 40 years. Cheers to all of their success.”
