Metal Church - Watch the Children Pray. Metallica and justice for all full album proper remix remaster .

Hanging in the Balance, released in 1993 followed a brief hiatus for the band in which founding member and guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof perused his side project Vanderhoof.

Gods of Second Chance, 05:22. Losers In the Game, 05:07. No Friend of Mine, 03:57. Waiting for a Savior, 05:48. Down to the River, 05:00.

Hanging in the Balance. Hanging in the Balance Tracklist.

Metal Church released three more albums with that line-up. Though there is hardly a bad song on the first five albums, Hanging In The Balance captivates through the most mature songwriting the band (in which all members always participated) has ever shown (Kurdt Vanderhoof gave up playing guitar for Metal Church, but stayed as a songwriter). The addition of Mike Howe, whose performance on Heretic’s superb album Breaking Point already gave a glimpse of what would become of Metal Church, changed the lyrics into a more political and social direction, and the music into a more melodic style. There is one negative thing to be said about this album: the artwork is disastrous. While the earlier two albums had a group photo on the front cover, which constitutes an incredible lack of imagination, Hanging In The Balance had a drawing of a fat comic-style balancing act that made you long for just another band picture.
