Editorial Reviews

In 1985, before Metallicaheads were exchanging underground cassettes, (there were no cds then) Metal Church was in a Seattle studio with producer Terry Date, it was the first record for both parties. Hanging in the wings at Metal Church rehearsals was none other than Kurt Kobain...but wait...it gets stranger. When "Beyond the Black" hit the radio, Metal could never be the same. There has never been a more wicked, dark, intricate and cool recording since. The indescribable voice of David Wayne has persevered making his best solo outing to date with "Metal Church" aptly named as it truly picks up where Metal Church left off. Metal Church went on to influence every band you can think of from Iron Maiden to Metallica to Megadeth and beyond. Sadly as a band Metal Church no longer exist but their spirit lives on in David Wayne's final opus along with ex-Metal Church guitarist, Chris Wells, the band on this album shows exactly how ass kicking metal should be played. Songs like the opener "The Choice", the catchy "The Hammer Will Fall" and "DSD" are immense songs in the tradition of the old classics, while Wayne's distinctive vocals are better than ever and with the help of some excellent production manages to combine the spirit of the past with todays metal sound. "Metal Church" has sold out around the world in stores since its initial release in 2001. "Metal Church" was produced by longtime collaborators Warren Croyle and Joe Floyd (Halford, Dickinson, Godhead, House of Lords, Downset, WASP, Marcy Playground).

When I bought this CD I was'nt sure what to expect.But no matter what David Wayne was involved in through the years, from Metal Church to Reverend it was always great stuff! So, with that in mind, I played this CD and it start's right out with a killer riff and groove on the song "The Choice".Right away You can tell David Wayne's voice is in top form."The Choice" reminds Me a little of some old Exodus like something off of "Pleasures of the flesh".Every song is a little different-all of them are smoking in Your face Heavy Metal except for the song "Ballad For Marianne" which is very similar in sound to "Watch The Children Pray" from Metal Church's classic release "The Dark".Ex-Metal Church guitarist Craig Wells joins David in His band also and does a great job as usual. This CD is old school metal with modern production. If You loved the first two Metal Church release's,this CD is something You won't want to miss!

David Wayne, former Metal Curch & Reverend front man, shows on this new release that he's lost none of the range on his pipes. He screaches his heart out on songs like Burning at the Stake and Nightmare Pt.2. This album has everything from catchy hooks to jamming power to even a soul wrenching ballad and sounds more like updated Metal Church than new Metal Church did. Other song titles include Vlad, Hannibal, The Choice, and The Hammer Will Fall. Most highly recommended.

This album is very much like the first Metal Church album(1985) and Masterpiece(1999). I'm very satisfied with the music. Actually I've always enjoyed Wayne's voice and still he's very good. The only missing thing is Vanderhoof here, however Wells also did a good job. I highly recommend this cd to power metal and trash metal fans and especially Metal Chuch fans. Buy and enjoy it.

David Wayne departed Metal Church again in 2001 due to personal and creative differences. He then formed a new band called Wayne and released an album also entitled Metal Church with former band mate Craig Wells. Craig Wells did not actually play guitar on this album, but he did give permission for his name to be used on it.[3] Wayne's Metal Church album created significant controversy with the band Metal Church, particularly founding member Kurdt Vanderhoof, who objected to the album's name and cover art. According to Wayne, the purpose of the album's name was to let everyone know of his involvement.[2]

If you haven't figured it out by the title...this is David Wayne (R.I.P.) singing on this album. If you like early Metal Church with David Wayne then this album is right up your alley. Every song rocks!!! Even the cover of Mississippi Queen is pretty good.

Great Album with Jimi Bell on the Ax it kicks ass. Just like the old school Metal Church this album will have you banging your head from the 1st to the last cut. The Reverand did a great job with the line up in this band, and again I say JIMI BELL is one ass kickin guitair player. I would like to hear more from this line up if not more from MR. Bell himself. 5 Stars!!!

This Album is the best. David Wayne Really hit this one out of the park. My 13 year old son loves this album and he is not a metal head like me. The guitar riffs are strong and powerfull. D.S.D. & Hannibal ROCK! I wish I had bought this album when it came out.

Yes, Metal Church lives, truly lives on. With Waynes references to the Bible (Steven and James) he truly brings the church in to his message. Die Satan Die is not only extremely well written and performed but is just one of the song on this effort that takes Wayne to the realm of super writer and band leader. When Metal Church and Wayne split, it was just never even close to the unbelieveble music of those first two albums. Although I truly enjoy Masterpiece, this CD has truly taken up where The Dark left off. Absolutely true quality metal with talent just dripping off the lyrics. Waynes reference as to radio being dead today in Nightmare Part II is absolutely true. Obviously, Wayne on this CD certainly are not. We always complain about new music or band members that don't perpetuate what we all loved about there earlier great stuff that MADE them great. THAT CAN'T BE SAID ABOUT THIS CD. It is Metal Church incarnate. Not one lazy tune. Not one filler. Obviously, enormous effort was spent creating this crowning moment of talent. Music with guts as well as the finesse of an experienced man of rock music. Even the one cover tune is well done and pays a quality tribute to the original. Wayne hit a home run with this one. It feels so good to be able to give 5 stars to a metal band these days. Go Wayne Go.
