5.0 classicBlackSabbath | August 30th 10

Metal Church's debut is not exactly a "pure thrash" release. It kind of straddles the line between heavy metal and thrash metal, but I digress, it doesn't really matter. This album is fantastic and completely underrated. David Wayne's vocal performance here is one of the finest in the genre, he's got a wide range and he uses it to his advantage quite well. Vanderhoof and Wells don't really mix it up too well with the riffs, but they certainly make up for it with bad ass solos. The title track here "Metal Church" is a thrash anthem, and the song "Hitman" is one of my all time favorites.

Right from the opening distorted vocals on "Beyond the Black," one can tell that this album is going to be brilliant. And it is; while it is not a perfect album, it is still a classic and a mandatory listen for ANY metalhead.

Great riffs, great solos, great everything. One of the most interesting thrash acts not usually known by the public.

4.0 excellentTheNotrap | January 7th 12

One of the classiest thrash metal albums ever released. Even if these guys were still searching for their identity "Metal Church" remains a very decent work. "Beyond the Black", "Metal Church", "Merciless Onslaught" and "Battalions" are the best songs here.
