Angelic Warlord Reviews
In 1999 Lars Ulrich, drummer for the Metallica, hosted a show in which he named Deliverance’s “Weapons of Our Warfare” as one of his Top 10 metal videos of all time.
Solid sales afforded a bigger budget for Weapons of Our Warfare, which is still
mentioned with hushed reverence among Christian metalheads as one of the best speed metal albums of all time.

ABOUT THE ALBUM
Only a year after the band released the historic Self-Titled debut, the band released their 1990 tour de force: Weapons of Our Warfare. Metallica created Master of Puppets, Slayer bludgeoned the world with the classic Reign In Blood, Flotsam & Jetsam had Doomsday..., and Exodus boasted Bonded By Blood - all albums that would create the standard for all other speed metal releases. Weapons of Our Warfare was that album for Deliverance. It cemented the band's place as iconic speed metal royalty. To this very day, Weapons is still mentioned with hushed reverence among Christian metalheads as one of the elite speed metal albums of all time.
Guitarist Glenn Rogers had exited the band and former Recon guitarist George Ochoa had joined in his place. Weapons of our Warfare turned out to be one monster of a record, a genuine speed metal classic. Each and every song is played with a feverish fury, and once again the song writing is outstanding. Since 1985, lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist, Jimmy Brown had been crafting some of the tastiest techniques for complex rhythms and highly technical rhythm guitar. Brown's guitar mastery drives the album from start to finish, setting new standards of power, precision, and stamina. The album shows marked musical growth with several adrenaline-driven, extended, multi-sectioned compositions foreshadowing the band's later progressive epics. And the trade-off guitar leads by Brown and Ochoa provide first rate riffage that will satisfy even the most skilled Guitar Hero addict.
Weapons of Our Warfare (2023) takes all the magic from the original release and magnifies it featuring a complete 2022 Digital Remastering by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound. It even includes two bonus tracks on vinyl for the first time ever - "Rescue" from the original Weapons recording sessions, but never used, and "Greetings of Death" (not the 1985 demo version). For fans of Believer, Slayer, Exodus, Metallica, Tourniquet, and Anthrax.
