Metal Church - 1986 - The dark

Post by The ripper on Thu 28 Jul - 11:38






Released 6 october 1986

Metal Church’s sophomore album was another crushing metal beast.  
Kicking off with the speed machine Ton Of Bricks (great lyrics!) and closing with the rampaging Western Alliance, The Dark
is an album begging to be played at max volume.  
This album features Metal Church’s most famous song (I think?), the brooding Watch The Children Pray,
as well as my personal favorite Metal Church song (from the David Wayne years, anyway) Method To Your Madness.  
It was Ton Of Bricks, however, that actually introduced me to Metal Church as a young, impressionable pre-pubescent.  
At that time it was the heaviest song I had ever heard.  
To that point in my life, I had been raised by the likes of KISS, Twisted Sister, Quiet Riot and Ozzy (all great, by the way).  
But Ton Of Bricks showed me there was an even heavier sound out there.  
Faster, louder, and meaner.  
Something that could work me up into a frenzy (or as my brothers and I would affectionately call it, a “mental spaz”).  
It was a baptism of sorts, into the Church of Metal.  
Still worshiping faithfully to this day.  
Ain’t religion cool?
