    So much of awesomeness. Fake Healer is insane. Not sure what to make of the sound issues on the 1st song. But thanks for posting. I am a big fan of this band, especially this era.

    Believe it or not, despite the fact this came from a DVD, I have heard some other live songs from the era and this was not one of Mike Howe's best performances.

    That's some good stuff! I don't think Metal Church ever really got the recognition they deserved...
    And to think some people call them overrated!

    Mike sounded good on some songs, not so good on others at this show. The finale "Metal Church" rips though !!!

    No I like Howe era way more than Wayne and I think Bryant agrees with me. 'Fake Healer', In Harm's Way, 'The Final Word', etc., all the albums with Mike are gems.

    I don't rate the eras of Metal Church, I appreciate them all. I did get to meet Mike Howe back in the day and he was pretty cool.

    Metal Church is definitely one of the classic underrated superb metal bands.

    Beyond the Black is one of the greatest metal songs of the 1980's. Just look at my avatar!

    I don't know if I agree this is the band in their prime, but I love the Howe era. Once the Howe-ers was over the band should have been laid to rest for good.

    I don't know about that, I thought the Ronny Munroe CDs were quite good myself.

    Well I'm well aware that he had his fans, I'm simply not one of them.

    Prefer Howe era, but love the first two releases as well. I find myself skipping around songs more than on either of the three Howe releases though.

    I don't know that I agree they should have "hung it up" after the Howe era. The "magic" seemed to be gone and the Munroe stuff paled in comparison, but it was far from awful. They were solid metal releases, just not excellent ones. I don't think the Munroe era tarnished their legacy, but I don't think it added much to it for me.

    :worship: "Blessing in Disguise" will always be my fav by MC, but the first two are very close in 2nd & 3rd. "The Human Factor" is good but just not up to par following in the footsteps of "BiD".

    However, as for "Hanging in the Balance"... :puke: I know some like it, but IMO it's just horrible compared to their previous 4 albums. A few (as in 3-4) decent/good songs, but that's it. I never really got into anything they did after that...
