Metal Church Ranked 🎸

Made in San Francisco in 1980, Metal Church consisted of vocalist David Wayne, guitarists Kurdt Vanderhoof and Craig Wells, bassist Duke Erickson, and drummer Kirk Arrington. Their 1985 self-titled debut album, recorded when the thrash/speed metal genre was still evolving, made a huge splash on the scene, as did its follow-up, The Dark. However, the band really hit its stride when Wayne left and was replaced by Mike Howe. Metal Church has Heavy Power Sound.

1. Metal Church - Metal Church
2. Metal Church - The Dark
3. Metal Church - Blessing In Disguise
4. Metal Church - The Human Factor
5. Metal Church - Hanging In The Balance

Song Puzzles: One Song In Several Parts On Different Albums

Some stories, themes or concepts are presented not just in one single song but are split in separate tracks that (often) share the same title but are distinguished by a number of the corresponding part of the song series.

However, sometimes these parts are not found together on one album, but are included on different releases of the artist.
They can be found on two (or more) conceptually linked albums (where they function as part of an ensemble together with the other songs), or they can be included on independent releases (where only they alone continue their story).

Therefore, the main purpose of this list is to give an overview that enables the reader to find the missing song pieces - or even to inform that these pieces exist at all.

Please feel free to find and suggest more examples of these "song jigsaw puzzles": one song(concept) in separate parts on different albums.

1. After Forever - Prison Of Desire
2. Dream Theater - Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence
3. Dream Theater - Train Of Thought
4. Dream Theater - Octavarium
5. Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos

Corrosion Of Conformity / C.O.C \ Ranked ☠️

One of the first punk-metal fusion bands, Corrosion of Conformity were formed in North Carolina by guitarist Woody Weatherman during the early '80s. In their early years, C.O.C. became known for their aggressive sound, intelligent political lyrics, and willingness to break away from both hardcore and metal conventions. In the '90s, their shift to a more stripped-down, deliberate sound -- sort of Black Sabbath filtered through the Deep South -- brought them enough in line with the alt-metal Zeitgeist to bring them a measure of mainstream popularity.

1. Corrosion Of Conformity - Wiseblood
2. Corrosion Of Conformity - Deliverance
3. Corrosion Of Conformity - America's Volume Dealer
4. Corrosion Of Conformity - In The Arms Of God
5. Corrosion Of Conformity - No Cross No Crown
