Emerald's Armed For Battle is actually a full CD later also released as a split with the band Oracle. Emerald was a California white metal act with similarities to Judas Priest. The band began recording with Roger Martin on bass, but with his departure Joe Palma was recruited to finish the album. Emerald can also be heard on the California Metal II compilation.
