Metal Church ‘Badlands’ from Blessing In Disguise

This may not be the greatest video of all time but it is an amazing song by Metal Church. Hell it was 1989 when it came out so I guess by then we were a spoiled MTV generation and wanted more, more, more. It’s still one of my all-time favorite Metal Church songs.

Mike Howe has since left the band and retired. Ronny Munroe has been doing a great job and their latest album ‘Generation Nothing’ was absolutely fantastic (go buy it ya jerkies) but last month he left the band to “pursue other interests.”

One can only wonder if Mike Howe is ready 20 years later to leave the comfort of his Tennessee home and political trucking career and hit the road with his brothers of metal once more.

Who is Metal Church?

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, and their latest, XI, was released in 2016.

UPDATE: With the 2016 release of XI Mike Howe is back with Metal Church and they are tearing up the scene like nobodies business.
