You can't deprive yourself any longer. You must hear the song Stand Strong by this band.

From: Metalhead Date: December 10, 2003 at 21:00
One seller in eBay wrote that this band would have been lucky if they have sold 5,000 to 10,000 copies of this album. So, does that make this very rare? They (the band) could have fared better if they came out in the mid 80s because of their style. Anyway, they used saxophones on two of the songs here. SAXOPHONES!!! Or at least a synth that made to sound like a sax.

From: Fundy Date: January 1, 2004 at 21:17
Stand Strong is the best track on this album. Watchmen were a great band, and a few years ago reformed as Impact and released a new album (basically Generation album with 3 new tracks). Don't think they're still going now. Fear No Evil, was Watchmens first album, and that was even better than Generation.

From: Hilarity Date: January 13, 2004 at 23:23
FANTASTIC guitar player! BTW, they DID come out it the mid-late 80's. Also, saxaphones were inserted by, uhm...a misguided producer, which ticked off said guitar player. I oughta know. -Mrs. Guitar Player

From: Metalhead Date: January 28, 2004 at 20:33
Thanks, Fundy for letting me know of my misconception. So, does Fear No Evil available on CD?

From: Fundy Date: February 6, 2004 at 22:44
Hey metalhead! It was never released on CD, but I didn't know that when I ordered it on CD!!! My copy looks good, but it must be a CDR! I got it from rocksolidmusic.com about a year or so ago. I've just had a look and it seems they have another one there for $17 (canadian dollars). $17 is well worth it in my view! If you like Generation then Fear No Evil will knock your socks off! Regency released an album called 'Underground Metal' and that had Watchmens Fear No Evil on it.

From: Fundy Date: February 6, 2004 at 22:45
Fear No Evil is probably the heaviest track on their 'Fear No Evil' album.

From: Impaler Date: February 22, 2004 at 13:51
This is the story of a band that put out a killer demo 'Fear No Evil' with a Dio sound to it, so when they were signed to a record contract many of us were excited only to be disappointed when this album came out sounding more like Journey than Dio. For what it is, it is a nice AOR album. Imagine expecting to hear 'Rainbow In The Dark' and instead getting 'Wheel In The Sky'! 'Breakin The Chains' and 'Stand Strong' are the highlights.

From: TR Date: April 7, 2004 at 5:58
Watchmen,hmmm...They're now called Guardian. I saw the in concert at ther Alaska State Fair in Palmer. What a show.

From: Shoemaker Date: January 4, 2005 at 12:43
Nice whitemetal/hardrock/aor band. Everybody who likes David Zaffiro, Zion and Idle Cure should test this one.

From: Impaler Date: April 17, 2005 at 3:13
To set TR straight, Watchmen are not now, nor were they ever called Guardian.

From: headbanger4life Date: October 18, 2005 at 3:42
This is decent aor/melodic hard rock. A few good songs and some average ones as well. I was kind of suprised to hear a saxaphone on this one. Would love to get they're 'Fear No Evil' release if it ever gets pressed on cd. I've heard that this one had a little more kick to it.

From: Delbert Date: January 18, 2010 at 12:59
This band is one of the better Christian melodic metal/AOR releases of the late 80's. I think the front cover gives an impression that's this is NOT a melodic rock band. With a big production sound, these guys sound amazingly a lot like HALO and STRYPER on some songs. Taking a look at the back cover pic, these guys look as cool as they rock! Top knotch singing, guitars, keys and production make this CD an enjoyable listen in my opinion.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 6, 2013 at 15:02
A lot better than the "Fear No Evil" one...good production and song wise all over,a better thought music scheme and leaving the Hard Rock of the past to sail into AOR oceans...my faves are "Turn","Stand Strong"(catchy chorus),"Breakin' The Chains" & "I Will Be There"(nice sax included)...recommended...85/100
