Armored Saint是美国的重金属乐队，于1982年在加利福尼亚州洛杉矶成立。自1990年以来，乐队的成员包括主音的约翰·布什，贝斯的Joey Vera，节奏吉他的杰夫·邓肯和鼓和首席吉他的Sandoval兄弟Gonzo和Phil。在目前的阵容中，布什和维拉是两个不变的成员。迄今为止，他们已经发行了八张录音室专辑，一张EP，两张现场专辑和一张合辑。
作为洛杉矶重金属领域的领导者之一，Armored Saint在1980年代凭借1983年的同名EP和首批三张录音室专辑取得了一定的成功：圣徒的三月（1984），妄想的游牧民族（1985）和《复活恐惧》 （1987）。在发行第四张录音室专辑Symbol of Salvation（1991）之前，由于唱片公司的问题以及他们最初的吉他手Dave Prichard的去世（1990年死于白血病），乐队长期处于闲置状态。当布什于1992年加入炭疽接替乔伊·贝拉当娜（Joey Belladonna）时，情况有所好转，但在1999年团聚，此后一直在巡回演出和录制唱片。
Armored Saint is an American heavy metal band, formed in 1982 in Los Angeles, California. Since 1990, the band has consisted of John Bush on lead vocals, Joey Vera on bass, Jeff Duncan on rhythm guitar and the Sandoval brothers, Gonzo and Phil, on drums and lead guitar, respectively. Of the current lineup, Bush and Vera are the two constant members. To date, they have released eight studio albums, one EP, two live albums and one compilation album.
As one of the leaders of the Los Angeles heavy metal scene, Armored Saint achieved moderate success during the 1980s with their 1983 self-titled EP and first three studio albums: March of the Saint (1984), Delirious Nomad (1985) and Raising Fear (1987). Prior to the release of their fourth studio album Symbol of Salvation (1991), the band was plagued by extended inactivity, due to record company issues and the death of their original guitarist Dave Prichard, who died of leukemia in 1990. Armored Saint eventually broke up when Bush joined Anthrax in 1992 to replace Joey Belladonna, but reunited in 1999, and has continued to tour and record since then.
