General Metal Discussions » Metal Church... Live ! [Discussion]

  • I just recently found out (quite a bit late I know... Shame shame...)
    that one of my all time favorite speed metal bands, Metal Church have made
    a live album.

    http://www.metalchurchmusic.com/graphics/mclive.jpg

    The reason I was so surprised about this is the fact that this album, although recorded
    in '84 only was released in ... '98 !
    This beauty entered straight away into my top 10 of live albums.
    Mainly because only songs from the brilliant debut are played.
    Seems logic of course: they only had the debut 'Metal Church' out at that time.
    Although a few songs from the second album 'The Dark', to be released in '86,can be heard.

    KILLER RELEASE from a band who unfortunately never reached that high level afterwards. (but that is only my opinion of course)
    David Wayne never sang better...

    Yeah, this live album is also available in a Steamhammer/SPV box set released in 1998, as a 2 CD in a slipcase, together with the Hanging in the Balance CD. This is the edition I currently have on my shelves.

    There is a live "official" (or almost, at least it haven't been rejected by the band) from 1998, but with songs from the Mike Howe era (Hanging in the Balance Tour). The quality is aweful, almost like a bootleg, but what the hell, is at least a great document.

    Track List:

    1 - No Friend of Mine
    2 - Start the Fire
    3 - Fake Healer
    4 - In Mourning
    5 - Little Boy
    6 - Losers in the Game
    7 - Watch the Children Play
    8 - Hypnotized
    9 - Gods of Second Chance
    10 - Waiting for a Saviour
    11 - Badlands

    The quality of that one is truly awful, most of my bootlegs are much better. Too hear Mike Howe live with the 'church, much better is the Dynamo Classic Concerts DVD - a MUST-SEE for metalheads!!!! I love David Wayne, but I love the Mike Howe period as well - he's got a great voice!

    Their first 3 LPs are a must! Probably the first is the better, but also "The Dark" and "Blessing in Disguise" are masterworks.

    Metal Church are one of the most underrated bands of all time.Having spent time with the guys in the band they are all incredibly nice.It's sad that they are no more.

    A word about this Metal Church live footage - I've been trading bootleg dvds for a long time - and I see this same DVD on many traders' lists - sometimes with date 1986, sometimes 1984 or 1983 - but I think the real date is 12-20-1986, it's at the Seattle Center Arena, opening for Metallica.

    Either way, it rocks (metal1)
