Metal Church's debut is more thrashy than any of their other albums (except maybe The Dark...). Metal Church is very underappreciated in my opinion. And I wish I could shout to the world how amazing this band is, but I guess when reality takes over, this band started off amazingly well, and then started dropping down and down in the ratings.

  I don't know why this album isn't on the Top 200! This is Heavy Metal masterpiece! Just one "Classic"

  Impressive debut from Metal Church. I´m not confidenced with the last four tracks, though. Could have been a higher rating then.
