3. Metal Church – XI
With Mike Howe back at the helm (he who lent his considerable pipes to early 90’s power thrash classics Blessing In Disguise, The Human Factor and Hanging In the Balance), Metal Church’s 11th(!) album is sure to be another worthy, riff-driven, entry in the Church’s formidable catalogue.
Set for release on March 25th, Metal Church’s glory days are from behind them if the likes of “No Tomorrow” – a melodic thrash masterclass that brings to mind the aforementioned seminal Blessing In Disguise – and the gloriously mid 80’s sound of “Killing Time” are anything to go by; the band visibly rejuvenated by Mike Howe’s return.
On this evidence, the classic sound remains while the band seem pumped and primed to remind new members of the flock why Metal Church continue to be worshipped and are the only church worth attending!
