This album is the follow-up to the self titled Metal Church but this one didn't quite kick my ass as hard as the debut. The Dark has some spit and polish to it, sacrificing the rawness of the debut for a more streamlined, somewhat "radio-friendly" recording. Don't get me wrong, this album is good but I think Metal Church could do it better.

Rating: 8 Nice album. Tight sound and memorable time changes. Anyone else think this album/band is underrated? Favorite song is "Watch the Children Pray".

Totally underrated. This album is great, thrashy enough and also of course Watch The Children Pray is a masterpiece.

I dont think they are underrated, in fact overrated. Only 2 tracks are good, others are fillers. This album bored me a lot when i was a teenager.

My classmates passing around this album on those days...almost everyone in the class has listened to this album...since then, no one ever talked about Metal Church anymore...until I left the school. Ha Ha...what a boring band.

I guess Hungarians don't know good music when they hear it then
