BAND METAL CHURCH
ALBUM DAMNED IF YOU DO
LABEL NUCLEAR BLAST
OUT Dec 7th, 2018
OUR RATING 85/100
METAL CHURCH, after a 38 years career and 12 studio album, is a band that doesn't have nothin' to prove.
Regardless they were able to provide a smart album that sounds classic but not old.
The 1st shot is the title track where the vocals contribution of MIKE HOWE is absolutely amazing, all enhanced by sharp guitars riffs by axe masters VANDERHOFT/VAN ZANDT.
Non least the great THE BLACK THINGS and REVOLUTION UNDERWAY, the second more progressive, or heavier GUILLOTINE (one of our fav) and the single BY THE NUMBERS, already known thanks to a great clip.
INTO THE FOLD and ROT AWAY goes on in the same way, while MONKEY FINGER is a great mid tempo, right to break the rhythm.
METAL CHURCH are back in a great shape...HM world needs bands line this!!
