Christian Heavy metal from California. EMERALD was founded during 1978 by the teenage guitar player Dave Enos and lead vocalist Larry Phillips. The 'Armed For Battle' recording sessions would see bass player Roger Dale Martin in the studio for six songs until he left, relocating to Los Angeles to join the now infamous Vengeance Rising. The band then enlisted Joe Palma to complete bass parts. (Roger Dale later went on to join Die Happy and Once Dead.)

The album emerged in early 1987, nearly a full year after commencement of recording, but EMERALD called it a day in November 1988. Drummer Kyle Morrett would join SACRED FAITH whilst Enos created LAST DAZE.
