CD Reviews

One of the most overlooked metal albums
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Hanging in the Balance, has got to be one of the best metal albums to come out in the 90's. Metal Church reached a new level of musical ability with this album. The guitar, vocals, and rythems is technically amazing, but you don't feel like there is no soul in the music. The whole album is driven, and powerful."
Metal Church - Keeping their balance

"Many people claim that Metal Church isn't as good when they have a different vocalist to David Wayne (vocalist on first two albums 'Metal Church' and 'The Dark'). I definitely agree with this, but what I don't agree with is the same people saying that Metal Church suck without David Wayne.

This isn't true at all. 'Hanging in the balance' is the only Metal Church album I have without David Wayne as the vocalist (I'm English, so I have to order up in HMV or Virgin and wait about 6 months before actually getting the Metal Church album I'm after). 'Hanging in the Balance' and 'Metal Church Live' were in a double-disk package that was actually in the shop so I took advantage of the situation and bought the package.

So anyway, 'H.I.T.B' offers melodic rhythms from songs like 'Waiting for a Saviour', 'End of the Age' and 'Lovers and Madmen'.
Songs like 'Conducter', 'Down to the River' and 'Little Boy' pack lots of heaviness and even 80s thrash material.

If you're a fan of the first two Metal Church albums don't give it a miss just because it has Mike Howe instead of David Wayne.
Sure, it isn't as good as 'Metal Church' or 'The Dark' but it is a great album.

Recommended songs:

Waiting for a Saviour
Little Boy
Down to the River
Lovers and Madmen and
A Subtle War"
