REVEREND REISSUES FROM DIVEBOMB RECORDS

Few bands can survive the departing of a vocalist. This was the crossroads that Heretic found themselves at in 1988. The Los Angeles-based metallers had just had their dynamic front man, Mike Howe, leave the group for greener pastures, becoming the singer for Metal Church. It was an opportunity that no one in Heretic faulted him for jumping on, but it left them with the daunting task of replacing someone so unique. Several auditions were held, but no one seemed fit for the job of replacing Howe. One of Heretic’s label reps had suggested they give recently ousted Metal Church vocalist, Read more...

INTERVIEW WITH KEN NARDI (ANACRUSIS)

Anacrusis is one of my “all time favorite” bands. I have been a huge Anacrusis fan for many years and was lucky to see them live at the Keep It True Festival during the Band’s short-lived re-union days. Now, we have an interview with Ken Nardi both about the past and his new works. I hope you enjoy this; HS- It is both easy & hard to make an interview with you as you have the most detailed band site I’ve ever seen. Why are you so open to the fans, don’t you feel that a little mystery is needed? (Not because I don’t like this, in fact I see it as a great favor Read more...

METAL CHURCH – GENERATION NOTHING REVIEW

After a 5 years break, Metal Church is back with Generation Nothing released from Rat Pak Records. To start with, Metal Church has always been among my top bands list although I lost interest in the band for the last almost 20 years. In fact, my latest favorite release was Blessing in Disguise released in 1991 and the last high-class release was, I believe, Hanging in the Balance released in 1993. So, although I think Metal Church has been one of the major cornerstones of US Metal, their production for the last 20 years were not very impressive. This is their 4th release with Ronnie Munroe Read more...

METAL CHURCH

  Born out of the West Coast Metal scene of the 80’s, Metal Church quickly became one of the standout talents of the genre. After signing a deal with Elektra records, they released two critically acclaimed albums. Their self-titled release “Metal Church” postured the band as one of the pioneers of the thrash/metal scene. The All Music Guide had this to say about the debut: “The band’s incredibly tight musicianship is a highlight all on it’s own. This album remains an overlooked classic of straight-ahead American-bred heavy metal.” With the Read more...
