One of the first doom metal bands. Influenced by Black Sabbath.
Saint Vitus were formed in 1978 under the name Tyrant with Scott Reagers (vocals), Dave Chandler (guitar), Mark Adams (bass), and Armando Acosta (drums), but changed their name to Saint Vitus in 1980. In the mid-1980s, while The Obsessed were on hiatus, Scott "Wino" Weinrich would join the band, replacing Scott Reagers, and record with them up until their 1990 album "V". They released two more albums without him (the second with a briefly returning Scott Reagers), before splitting up in 1996.
They briefly reunited for a few shows in 2003, and when Debris Inc. and The Hidden Hand were both put on ice for good by 2008, Saint Vitus decided to stay reunited full time. They released their eighth studio album in 2012, with Wino on vocals.
