Let's get this right once and for all. This is an album featuring David Wayne (RIP), the original singer for Metal Church. The players include a former guitar player in Metal Church and 3 guys from the band Thunderhead. David Wayne named the band after himself and named the album "Metal Church". Maybe it was a tribute to the band he once fronted, maybe it was to piss off his former band and maybe it was meant to just create pub. It was probably all three. Having said that, this album is not perfect but it has some very good tracks and should please any fans of traditional heavy metal. Raise the horns.

Tbe band is Metal Church and the album is named Wayne. This is a great album with good metal integrity. However, if you are looking for the British band Wayne, its much different than this. Mislabeling this album is not helping Metal Church fans find the recording on here.

Old style heavy metal a la Saxon,Accept or Krokus,great fun,this would certainly cause some heavy snowfall on the dancefloor.

They Say All Music Guide

Much like the English punk movement before it, the New Wave of British Heavy Metal invaded hundreds of American garages in the early ’80s and launched countless bands across the nation. It is interesting to note, however, that while in major cities with thriving punk rock this phenomenon manifested itself in the form of thrash metal (for example, L.A.’s Metallica, New York’s Anthrax), in secondary capitals, up-and-coming bands generally boasted a more mainstream metal approach. Such was the case with Phoenix’s Armored Saint, Connecticut’s Fates Warning, and Seattle’s Queensryche, but Metal Church (also from Seattle) seemed determined to cover both angles on their powerful 1985 debut. But while the complex songwriting and aggressive riffing seen on trad metal epics like “Beyond the Black,” “Gods of Wrath,” and “Metal Church” are about as good as it gets, thrashier moments like “My Favorite Nightmare,” “Battalions,” and the appropriately named instrumental “Merciless Onslaught” still needed a little work. In fact, the band’s incredibly tight musicianship is a highlight all on its own, and vocalist David Wayne’s piercing screech (similar to Accept’s Udo Dirkschneider) was considered very hip at the time, believe it or not. Concluding with a full-throttle cover of the Deep Purple standard “Highway Star,” this album remains an overlooked classic of straight-ahead American-bred heavy metal. – Eduardo Rivadavia
