An obsession within an obsession. I have been listening to a lot of 80's metal...so much so, that I can almost feel my mullet growing back in. In cruising through my 1985 playlist, I stumbled upon the first Metal Church album. It had been a while since I'd given it a spin, so I figured that I'd check it out. Hot damn! I'd forgotten how great this album was.
After giving it a listen, I soon found myself queuing it up everyday. Fuck. Metal Church was never better than when David Wayne was at the mic. I could not get enough, and soon I was checking eBay for vinyl.
Before signing to Elektra, Metal Church released their first LP on the short lived Ground Zero Records. When I started searching eBay for a copy of the Metal Church LP, I knew that there was no way an Elektra pressing was going to cut it. I needed the original first pressing...and I needed it in excellent condition. When I found what I was looking for, I didn't hesitate to spend a few extra dollars to get what I wanted.
First pressings came with a merchandise insert. Dude, I would totally rock that muscle shirt right now.
Warning: ordering the Metal Church neck brace is only for serious bangers.
