Celebrating the 20 year anniversary of the release of the now classic self-titled first album, “Metal Church”, the band is back with a dose of new blood and hotter than ever. Spawned from the new wave of British heavy metal of the late 1970’s, the band was formed by Kurdt Vanderhoof and Kirk Arrington, and now includes the talents of another veteran of that era, Jay Reynolds formerly of Malice. The new lineup also includes notable Northwest talents, Ronny Munroe of Rottweiller on vocals and Steve Unger on bass.

Having had several band member changes over the years, this lineup is truly the most compelling to date. Delivering the goods with their new album “Weight Of The World”, which has been called by critics their best in years and a return to their metal roots, Metal Church are now leveling audiences in America and Europe alike. With a no-nonsense, supercharged live show and a new album that will kick you in the teeth, this looks to be the year that Metal Church will garner the respect and success they’ve long been due.
