When I spoke with Kurdt about rejoining the band, I told him I’m not here for nostalgia. I’m very proud of what we did in the past, but I’m not here because of it. I’m here because I want to write quality new metal.
‘Damned if You Do’ is record number two of Metal Church after the legendary Mike Howe rejoined the band in 2014. The return of Howe, who already enriched albums like ‘Hanging in Balance’ with his great voice, gave a real push for the powerhouse.
Once I popped in XI, I knew immediately that Howe was in top form, and all things are right in the world of Metal Church.
