Description of Crime Scene Earth 2.0 by Saint
Re-recorded, Remastered Re-release of 2008 classic metal masterpiece for fans of Judas Priest!
Saint is one of a handful of pioneering Christian heavy metal bands that re-grouped after being inactive for some years. After dominating Christian metal in the 80s, they reformed in 1999, and self-released albums in 2004, 2006, and then Crime Scene Earth in 2008. When the band signed with Retroactive Records in 2009, they also agreed to have the label re-release this 2008 classic. However, the Retroactive Records version is now called Crime Scene Earth 2.0 because the album has been remastered, remixed, and many parts completely re-recorded. CSE 2.0 also features stunning, all-new artwork by extraordinary artist, Rex Zachary (Tourniquet, Ultimatum) far superior to the original release. On the original release, the classic voice of Saint, the immortal golden-throated Josh Kramer, sang on only three tracks. On this re-release, the band had Josh go back into the studio and record his Rob Halford-ish vocals on every single track on the album! From the thunderous Bended Knee to the stunning cover of the Judas Priest classic Invader, Josh and Saint ascend to the elite levels of melodic heavy metal! This Heavy Metal classic has never sounded or looked better! If Saint were to put out a best of collection, these songs would easily fit in with their past recordings. NoLifeTilMetal. On Crime Scene Earth Saint stays true to its form by giving us another slab of quality classic metal. AngelicWarlord
