Metal Church - Congregation of Annihilation Vinyl LP
West coast metal veterans Metal Church will release their 13th studio album Congregation of Annihilation on May 26, 2023. The album was produced by founding guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof and marks the first release since the tragic death of legendary front man Mike Howe who passed in July of 2021. It also marks the first album with new vocalist Marc Lopes (Ross the Boss / Let Us Prey) who came on board in the summer of 2022. Congregation of Annihilation is a return to the band's musical roots harkening back to the vibes of the self-titled first album and The Dark.
