Metal Church is one of those great plane "great" Tharsh Metal that deserved a lot more credit this is a great album and strongly recommended for old schol Thrashers!
Florencio Menceyra
The music on this CD is just rehashed music from the 80's with no thought or time put into them.

Metal Church comes through with their latest disc, Masterpeace. Lots of energy, riffs, etc. It quickly quenched my appetite for this underrated band but I want more. David Wayne's vocals aren't the same as they were on the first two albums. He kind of sounds like Blitz Ellsworth from Overkill now, but he still sounds great. Buy it!!

and no one will laugh. Some of the originators of the Bay Area sound and more importantly a band that comes out of that now household name toddlin' town of Seattle, Metal Church are back in original line up sans Craig Wells. Smoking and chugging along without skipping a metallic beat, everyone's favorite pastors prove they can still blast away at the metal masses with skill and juicy riffery. Dave Wayne's vocal performance is now more solid and rooted. Served up right in a picky metalhead era. Nice to see Dave's absence didn't cause him to lose track with the times. Sure Kurdt Vanderhoof is the main driving force and influence, as he has been throughout their career, this guy is an unsung genius. Last few albums have been lyrical as well as musical gemstones and it doesn't stop here! Opening freight train "Sleeps With Thunder", "Falldown" and mid-album monsters "Kiss For The Dead" and "Faster Than Life" are classics, "Sand Kings" is a cold steel genius of an album ender. Glad to see K.V. is back in the lineup after a solo stint. One shortcoming, bad choice in cover tunes with the yawner Aerosmith drip-tune "Toys in The Attic", which really isn't a good song no matter who serves it up.

Being a Metal Church fan from the begining, this album ranks high among my favorites. At this point in their career, I had given up hope of ever hearing a Vanderhoof/Wayne line-up again, yet here it was. Masterpeace is a fine polished slab of metallic brillience.

So what if it isn't the face melting onslought as the first album, this is a beautifully crafted work of metal, and a great portrait of a gracefully aging power metal band. I have bought several copies of this album to give to some of my younger 'metal head' freinds. 'Faster Than Life' is one of the finest Metal Church songs ever, right up there with 'Beyond the Black', 'Metal Church' and 'Method to Your Madness'. Miss you Dave.

It's not original, but keeping true to metal.

I am not too knowledgable on this band, but what gather is that this is a reunion-type album with Dave Wayne. He died only a few months ago! This is the only album I've heard, but if this is their last album together -- they did a pretty good job!

I was surprised how good the writer Kurdt Vanderhoof was! Brillant writer. These guys could talk about anything and make a bad situation cool! :)

It's sounds like a lot like Metallica in some ways (if you forget about the screechy voice!), but when you listen to more tracks, you realize it's more or less a continuation of Metallica -- something they should have done instead of brought that very ordinary Snake/Black Album.

They seem to be more well-blanced with lyrics -- kinda more like Iron Maiden/Bruce Dickinson in this department.

His voice takes a while to getting use to. This band is still kinda new to me, but I am sure I'll be getting more albums from these metal men soon! :)

Let me say goodbye to Dave. It won't suffer anymore so REST IN PEACE.

...Although given my somewhat phlegmatic view on their previous albums that may not mean too much.
The best two songs on the album are the first two, both speed-metal stompers of a very traditional sort. If the whole album had been like this I would have been content. However, they do slow it up frequently, and I find their slower songs less interesting.
Overall, not very original, not particularly complex or intricate, just a solid slab of traditional speed metal. A welcome comeback.
A high 3 rating.

this was the reunion album with original singer from the first 2 albums. Some catchy parts here and there, along with some good guitar solos, but the unique dark thrashing energy and songwriting of the early metal church is not very present. Sounds like megadeth in spots. Also the vocalists voice has changed over time...he sounds like Saxon vocalist Biff Byford on this.

Metal Church's original vocalist, David Wayne, returned for one last album with the group in 1999, MASTERPEACE.

I've owned Metal Church's first four albums, and have heard songs from the others, and MASTERPEACE, their sixth album, is my favorite (so far). Why? For one, the songwriting as a whole is better than on their first few albums. Of course, those CDs have some great songs, like "Watch the Children Pray" and "Fake Healer" (aka Reverend's "Legion"), but I was always disappointed by at least half the songs on each album. Not that they were total dogs, of course; they just failed to trip my trigger. MASTERPEACE doesn't make this mistake as it's consistently enjoyable throughout. (Although I admit that it doesn't contain anything as immediately blow-you-away as those two songs).

Secondly, there's just something about David Wayne's voice that makes him stand out from the crowd. Of course, their second singer, Mike Howe, is a technically great singer & front man, and their third, Ronny Munroe, is no slouch, but Wayne always had that ultra `metal god' presence; more importantly, his vocals were just so distinctive and catchy, especially when he'd go into something melodic or falsetto that dripped with feeling and turned your head, like the choruses of "Falldown" & "Into Dust," the climax of "Into Dust" or the final line of the chorus of Reverend's "Ritual." He wisely utilized this technique in varying ways throughout MASTERPEACE and it makes the songs very hooky.

I also appreciate that the songs are all totally distinguishable. Don't you hate it when you buy a CD and every song sounds basically the same? That's thankfully not the case here and you'll note this distinguishability when the CD switches from "Kiss for the Dead" to "Lb.
