Metal Church calls it quits.

http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/bla...sitemID=123255

Seattle, Washington-based metallers METAL CHURCH have released the following statements:

"To all of our fans and friends...

"We regretfully announce that METAL CHURCH is calling it quits.

"The performance at Rocklahoma will be our last show. We have had to cancel the shows scheduled for August and that, among other things, has led us to have to make this decision.

"There has been far too much frustration and disappointment in trying to keep moving forward. The collapse of our record company, SPV, has made it next to impossible for us to continue in any kind of professional manner due to lack of tour support. This decision was not made lightly.

"We do have unfinished business in the studio, and with any luck we will have something that will be of interest to METAL CHURCH fans in the near future.

"We would like to thank all the fans that have stuck with METAL CHURCH through all these years, the lineup changes and the ups and downs.

"We can't tell you how much your support has meant to us, we appreciate each and every one of you.

"It's been a great ride."

This is relatively sad, but on the other hand the last couple of Metal Church albums really haven't done anything for me. It's terrible to lose a band who are really moving forward and putting out great material, but the only thing I think most people are losing here is the chance to see them once in a while playing the old songs they really came to see.

I've really enjoyed both of the last two albums.

Ronny Monroe's solo album comes out in September. I have his demo EP, which is excellent.
