American heavy metal staple Metal Church have released the first part of a documentary EPK which goes into detail about the creation of their new LP, that titled of which is yet to be revealed.
Singer Mike Howe, who has recently returned to the band after almost 20 years away, commented – “Kurdt Vanderhoof got ahold of me in August of 2014, and he proposed coming back to the band. He said Ronny left the band and he didn’t really wanna carry on with Metal Church unless maybe I would consider coming back. So I said, ‘Well, I don’t know. I’m open to it. But let’s see what kind of music we can come up with.’ So Kurdt went back to the studio and started writing songs in the vein of Hanging In The Balance, where we left off twenty years ago, and he sent them to me over the Internet. And I was, like, ‘Damn! The guy still has it and he’s doing great work.’ So he sent me another batch, and that batch was just as good, if not better than, the other. So, from there, I said, ‘Well, I can’t say no to this. And let’s just see how it goes.’ And we started writing lyrics and getting together, and it’s now morphed into this, being back in Aberdeen in the studio making the new Metal Church record.”
