METAL CHURCH RELEASE STATIC VIDEO FOR CLASSIC TRACK “CONDUCTOR”

METAL CHURCH RELEASE STATIC VIDEO FOR THE REIMAGINED SONG “CONDUCTOR” FROM THE BAND’S CLASSIC HANGING IN THE BALANCE


Today may be April Fool’s Day, but this is not a joke! West coast metal veterans Metal Church have released a static video for the reimagined version of the band’s classic “Conductor.” The song, originally from the band’s fifth album Hanging In The Balance released in 1993, was recorded exclusively for their upcoming From The Vault collection scheduled for worldwide release on April 10th. Always a fan favorite, the updated version sounds modern and polished due to mixing and mastering by Chris “The Wizard” Collier. The song is available on all streaming services and can be found on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/uwxM4z_7Utk.  

From The Vault is a special edition compilation album that features 14 previously unreleased tracks from the Mike Howe era, which include four newly recorded studio tracks. The remaining tracks are compiled from various recordings in the band’s history and include five tracks from 2018’s Damned if You Do recording sessions, three cover songs and two live tracks “Agent Green” and “Anthem to the Estranged” which was recorded at the famous Club Citta, Kawasaki, Japan on the Damned If You Do world tour. A lyric video for the album opener “Dead On The Vine” can be seen here: https://youtu.be/r1mvLzcfV-U and for the song “For No Reason” can be seen here: https://youtu.be/CVAdJq8s_aQ. Tracks 1 through 4 were mixed and mastered by Chris “The Wizard” Collier (KXM, Whitesnake, Prong, Korn) and Tracks 5 through 14 were mixed & mastered by Kurdt Vanderhoof

The album is available for pre-order in numerous configurations including a limited edition twenty-two-page comic book via Rat Pak Records here: https://www.ratpakrecordsamerica.com/metal-church. The comic book ,“Return of the Fake Healer” ( featuring the artwork of mid-west comic book illustrator Andrew Owens), also comes with an additional compilation CD which features a mix of “XI” and “Damned If you Do” tracks as well as 2 previously unreleased mixes of “Killing Your Time” and “Needle & Suture”. From The Vault is also available via all digital retailers and fans that purchase a digital copy via iTunes will receive an instant download of all 3 currently released songs.
