Episode 384: Album Autopsy - Metal Church’s The Dark - Part 1

November 13, 2015

When metal was on it's meteoric rise in popularity in 1986, METAL CHURCH released their album The Dark. Peaking at #92 on Billboard, it was a classic and influential album in the making. So we reached out to former MC guitarist Craig Wells who was more than happy to share stories about those days. In Part 1 of this Album Autopsy, Scott from Focus On Metal joins Roch and Craig for an educational conversation. We learn about the writing of the album in his grandmother's garage, the best way to record a demo, what happened to MC's deal with Elektra Records, and working with producer Terry Date. Horns up!
