Survivors is the debut album by British heavy metal band Samson. It was released in 1979 and, even if vocalist Bruce Dickinson appears as a band member on the cover sheet, the album was completed before he joined the band, with guitarist Paul Samson on vocal duty. The re-issue on CD of the album features five bonus tracks with Dickinson singing some tracks from the original release.[2]
