Metal Church - "Dead On The Vine" (video)

When you take license go in for the kill
You open your throat and choke down a sweet pill
But as you will find the effects soon wear off
And find that there is no more room at the trough
Push back the thoughts try to keep them at bay
Saving them up for a much darker day
Taking my steps with a push from behind
No longer a slave to the grind

You can’t read the signs, because you are blind
You just fell behind
You’re dead on the vine

Is time on your side and are you running free?
To get to the place that you wanted to be
Are you the man you were hoping to find?
Not long till you’re losing your mind

You can’t read the signs, because you are blind
You just fell behind
You’re dead on the vine

You can’t read the signs
You just fell behind
You’re blurring the lines
You’re feeling just fine
Your dead on a vine
Your dead on a vine
Your dead on a vine

Την πρώτη τους συλλογή θα κυκλοφορήσουν τον Απρίλιο οι Metal Church. Φέρει τον τίτλο "From the Vault" και περιλαμβάνει τέσσερα νέα τραγούδια της Αμερικάνικης μπάντας, πέντε μουσικά κομμάτια που "περίσσεψαν" από τον τελευταίο τους δίσκο "Damned If You Do", τρεις διασκευές (σε Nazareth, Sugarloaf, Ram Jam) και δύο "ζωντανά" ηχογραφημένα στην Ιαπωνία.

Οι Metal Church δημιουργήθηκαν το 1980 στο San Francisco από τον Kurdt Vanderhoof. Φημολογείται πως ένα από τα τότε μέλη (το 1981) ήταν και ο drummer των Metallica, Lars Ulrich. Μετά το demo "Red Skies" η μπάντα διαλύεται και ο Kurdt επιστρέφει στην γενέτειρά του σχηματίζοντας τους Shrapnel. Το 1983 τους μετονόμασε σε Metal Church και... το τραίνο μπήκε στις ράγες.

Το συγκρότημα παραμένει ενεργό μέχρι τις ημέρες μας (με αρκετά διαλείμματα). Οι Metal Church έχουν κυκλοφορήσει δώδεκα full length δίσκους, τρία live albums, δώδεκα singles και εννέα demos. Αξίζει να σημειωθεί πως σήμερα κυκλοφορεί το Boxed set "The Elektra Years 1984-1989", το οποίο περιλαμβάνει τα τρία πρώτα albums της Αμερικάνικης μπάντας...

Βιογραφικό: «Metal Church is an American heavy metal band. They originally formed in San Francisco, California in 1980 before relocating to Aberdeen, Washington the following year and briefly using the name Shrapnel. Their eponymous debut album was released in 1984.

Metal Church is credited as a formative influence on the thrash / metal subgenre, melding the aesthetics of the new wave of British heavy metal and American hard rock. Early lyrical topics, such as conflict and paranoia, later expanded into philosophical and social commentary.»
