Metal Church, 'The Dark' (1986)

That was one of the albums that somebody put on a tape for me, and I didn't know who they were until I asked. I just remember listening to all the songs, especially "Start the Fire" and "Ton of Bricks," and the title track is pretty fucking dope. I just remember going, "Fuck man, this is so badass. Who is this?" And they told me, so I went out and bought the album. And it's got a cover like, "Ugh, what's going on in there?" It's a fucking killer album. If people haven't heard it, it's so fucking underrated that it's almost critical how good that fucking album is. There's a reason why Stone Sour did a cover of "The Dark": It was just such a great song. To this day, I still listen to it. It's just such a fucking dope tune, such a dope album. I feel like more people should know about it.
