This is an old revision of the document!
G.V.A. stands for God's Victorious Army. G.V.A. started sometime in the early 80s before 1985. Dave “Burrito” Villalpando started the band when he was 23. Dennis Rudolph joined on the guitar. They went through three drummers before finding Dan Jacobs as their permanent drummer. At one point, G.V.A. was scheduled to play with Barren Cross, but Barren Cross canceled the show because they thought that metal and punk would not mix well. G.V.A. was one of many bands that called Radicals for Christ their home. Then Burrito joined Conviction of Sin. He went on to join Moral Majority before forming The Warning and 8-Ball Cholos.
(Note that most of the information on this page came from an interview with Burrito in the December 1989 issue of The Cutting Edge.)
