Born out of the West Coast metal scene of the 80’s, METAL CHURCH quickly became one of the standout talents of the genre. After signing a deal with Elektra Records, they released two critically acclaimed albums. Their self-titled release ‘Metal Church’ established the band as one of the pioneers of the thrash/metal scene and earned them a major tour with then label mates METALLICA.
METAL CHURCH will play highlights from 2018’s Damned If You Do along with a round of classic tracks including Gods of Wrath, Metal Church, Watch the Children Play, Beyond the Black, Start the Fire, Ton of Bricks plus more
