Das dreizehnte Studioalbum „Congregation of Annihilation“ der US-amerikanischen Thrash Metal Institution METAL CHURCH wirft seine Schatten voraus und soll am 26. Mai erscheinen. Als erste Single wurde heute `Pick A God And Pray´ samt Lyricclip veröffentlicht.

Die neue Scheibe ist die erste Veröffentlichung seit dem tragischen Tod des legendären Frontmanns Mike Howe und der erste Output mit dem neuen Sänger Marc Lopes (Ross the Boss / Let Us Prey). Das aktuelle Lineup besteht darüber hinaus aus Gründungsgitarrist Kurdt Vanderhoof, Gitarrist Rick Van Zandt, Bassist Steve Unger und Schlagzeuger Stet Howland.

Kurdt Vanderhoof kommentiert:

„This new album is starting a new chapter in the Metal Church legacy. I really love this album. It’s a fresh approach for us in one way, but also a return to the very beginnings of Metal Church as part of the New American Thrash Metal movement. This record contains some of the most aggressive songs we have recorded. I hope the fans will like it as much as we do.”

Marc Lopes fügt hinzu:

“I am beyond honored to be part of carrying on this legacy into a new era of Metal Church. Working with Kurdt and a band that was a huge influence of mine growing up was a surreal experience to say the least. For me there was no point in trying to imitate what was already done to perfection. So, with respect to the past, we moved forward to a new chapter and here we are!”
