Our thanks go out to Shan Siva of Battle Helm Magazine for the great review of our latest release "Damned If You Do": "For those new to the band, this in essence is Metal Church i.e. a sugar coated lava bomb ha ha! Ending with that in mind on ‘The War Electric’, it could be 1984 again with its massive, twin guitar grabbing riff chugging menacingly before the guitars literally explode into solo frenzy, furiously attacking each other with Howe screaming very much like how I used to remember original vocalist Dave Wayne and Howland pummelling away in the background. If you wanna know what high octane heavy metal is all about then join the flock of the mighty Metal Church on this one!"

Our thanks go out to Stefan Björnshög of Stargazed Magazine for the cool review of DIYD: "I feel that with this album Metal Church have reinvented itself with one foot in the best parts of it’s history and the other expanding into new territory that fits the band perfectly, still in the Metal Church spectrum. The album is also a grower and in my opinion one of the bands top five albums. I’m impressed, but not surprised."

Huge thanks go out to Oliver Yeudall of The Rockpit for his stellar review of 'Damned If You Do': "Ok I might as well say it up front, I really liked this album. Like, a lot. Seriously, the recorded performances are something to behold. Everyone was on point at all points. The vocals have a great depth and texture to them, the guitars and bass are tight as the rock slabs that make up the pyramids, it’s just fantastic. The album is mixed perfectly too and shows everything at it’s best. The kick drums especially thunder like cannon fire. Speaking of drums, this is the first Metal Church record that’s had Stet Howland (formally of W.A.S.P.) performing on the skins. Having recently overcome a type of cancer known as Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, reports say that he played “like a man possessed”. That desire to rock definitely comes through on Damned."

Big thanks go out to Matt Coe of Dead Rhetoric.com for the 9/10 review of DIYD ~ "Firing back from a self-imposed sabbatical to real life, Mike Howe returned to Metal Church a couple of years ago with XI – and the subsequent touring cemented his elite status as a vocalist in this veteran melodic power/thrash outfit. Never one to rest on their laurels, Damned If You Do aims to prove that this reunion isn’t going to waver on the creative front. Even though the drum seat has shifted in between records (welcome Stet Howland), it’s business as usual for Kurdt Vanderhoof and the gentlemen of the Church – churning out another solid testament of anthems sure to appease the faithful and possibly bring more newcomers to the fold."

Big thanks go out to www.BigMusicGeek.com for the great review of our recent release "Damned If You Do" ~ "Easily the improbably long-running group's most effective post-Blessing In Disguise effort, other standouts, including the curiously-titled--yet highly-effective--societal examination “Monkey Finger” and the relentlessly pummeling tirade “The War Electric”, serve as a much-welcomed reminder of the group's unabashed lyrical and compositional prowess. A self-Produced affair throughout, Damned In You Do finds the group refusing to rely on the nostalgia, or perhaps the outright novelty, of the group quite literally 'roaring' back into life. With Howe and Vanderhoof undeniably operating amid a bona fide creative peak, the group now finds itself on the verge of re-attaining greatness, making it a genuine and sincere surprise for all dedicated members of the congregation."
