New Metal Church CD out Oct 22



Yeah can ya believe it, if you told me in 1983 when I first discovered Metal Church from their 'Four Hymns' demo cassette that I'd be here in 2013 talking about a new Metal Church album I would've laughed in your face. I can't be more happier than anyone to say I was wrong. Oct 22nd the new Metal Church CD "Generation Nothing" releases to the world. The king's of Northwest metal back in the 80s are back! What's even cooler (as a life long fan) I was asked to do all the band promo & CD photography for the album! Check out images and links to order below. Here's the press release with two KILLER preview tracks!

RAT PAK RECORDS SET TO RELEASE METAL CHURCH "GENERATION NOTHING"
 
Metal Church "Generation Nothing" marks the bands 10th full length studio release and boasts the return to the band's classic metal sound, says founding member Kurdt Vanderhoof, "It has elements of both the first album and the "The Dark", but still embraces the new sound of the band without chasing the past." 
 
Born out of the West Coast Metal scene in the 80's, Metal Church quickly became one of the standout talents of their genre. The band's first release simply entitled "Metal Church" postured the band as one of the pioneers of the thrash/metal scene, while their sophomore release "The Dark” was championed as one of the premier metal releases of the 80's. 
 
Now with the current band’s line up, Kurdt Vanderhoof (guitar), Ronny Munroe (vox), Jeff Plate (drums), Rick Van Zandt (guitar) and Steve Unger on bass, "Generation Nothing" combines the best elements of the band’s early roots with modern day lyrical content and a revived hunger that delivers an electric assault of anthemic & epic metal songs! Videos for "Generation Nothing" and "Dead City" are currently in the post production stage and a world tour is in the works for 2014. Official release date for "Generation Nothing" is scheduled for October 22, 2013. 
 
TRACK LISTING 
 
1. BULLET PROOF
2. DEAD CITY
3. GENERATION NOTHING
4. NOISES IN THE WALL
5. JUMP THE GUN
6. SUICIETY
7. SCREAM
8. HITS KEEP COMIN’
9. CLOSE TO THE BONE
10. THE MEDIA HORSE 


As a life-long fan of Metal Church I was stoked to have been asked to do the band's new photography but knew I wanted to create something that would connect with the past yet be epically idealistic today. When Kurdt mentioned to me the new riffs and songs were very reminiscent of the first two albums meets the last couple modern Metal Church albums my mind raced. In my recent interview with One Louder Magazine [ click here to view full interview ] I partly explain the weird psychic-like idea I arrived at with this location my mother-in-law Kathy told my wife for me to check out. It's been nearly 30 years since the debut album released and with the new album called "Generation Nothing" I thought the church should be in ruins. Would you believe this is next to hole 18 of the 2015 U.S. Open?
