The Trash Metal band Metal Church was never recognized as largely as bands like Anthrax and Megadeth, but they were the best of the bunch. “Blessing in Disguise” is a metal masterpiece. The album starts out incredibly heavy with “Fake Healer”, one of the best songs EVER. The musicianship is superb, and rocks as hard as anything ever written. “Anthem To The Estranged” is a powerful ballad about the homeless that demonstrates the band’s songwriting capabilities. It’s nearly 10 minutes long, but you probably won’t notice, since the song captivates from beginning to end.Another great track is “Badlands”, and shows the variety Metal Church brought to Thrash Metal. This album should be a must have for any Metal fan. It’s uncomprimising, loud and heavy.
