Back in 2009, there were a lot of us that were less than thrilled with Metal Church announced they were disbanding. While not for all fans, there's a lot of people out there that considered their LIGHT IN THE DARK release to be one of the best in the history of the band. And while other releases in the Ronny Munroe era of the band have been hit or miss, they brought it strong in the live environment. Further, releases like WEIGHT OF THE WORLD and THIS PRESENT DARKNESS were not bad efforts per se. They just weren't as good as LIGHT IN THE DARK or the classic era material. Having seen the Munroe led version of Metal Church a few times, it was really disheartening to hear they had broken up. Thankfully though, they have brought the band back together after a few years away to regroup, adapt to the business model of modern recording, and just recharge the batteries. The resulting GENERATION NOTHING is a very, very strong effort from the mighty Metal Church.
