The first album is untouchable. Just amazing from start to finish, even the 'Highway Star' cover.

I like The Dark a lot, but IMO it's a big step down from the debut...much more accessible/commercial. Having said that, 'Ton of Bricks' is probably one of my all-time favorite songs.

I have ignored everything after The Dark. Heard a few songs here and there and didn't like any of 'em.


Pretty much this to a "T"

I only really care about the debut. Always hated The Dark and it's shitty sounds on drums.

Metal Church is my favorite, but I also fig the old Metal Church demo material with Ed Bull on vocals. Arab Nations! Never really got into anything past the first album though.

Also just dug up an old boot of Ed's post MC/pre-Heathen band Control. Killer blend of early MC, punk, and early bay area thrash that most people seem to dislike. Working on ripping it now, maybe I'll stick it somewhere for sharesies if anyone is interested.

All the first three are great, my favorite is either the first or Blessing In Disguise. I love the drum sounds of The Dark!

Someone voted for "A Light in the Dark" ? The fuck ?
There's a couple -good- songs on it, but it's really mediocre overall.....

Sounds like an electronic kit. Weird shit especially compared to the drum sound on Blessing.

I know, I love these electronic and/or processed drum sounds of the 80s.

Stick it! I love early MC; my tape is about worn out from to much blasting.

s/t debut easily. One of the greatest heavy metal albums in my books. The Dark has great tunes too, the drum sound is one of the very biggest of the 80´s metal, makes me want to wear Luhta! Had that Blessing in Disguise when it came out, but it was a bit too clean for my taste then... Maybe I should give it another chance now in my AOR years. Cool story here: When I was in high school I paid some local glue sniffing delinquents to steal it from the record store for me, so it was like half priced. Never heard anything past that. I Have a great double lp bootleg of their demos called Building the Church, recommended! Some of the early demos are more in the vein of Kurdt Vanderhoof´s late 70´s / early 80´s punk rock unit The Lewd, another killer band...
