MESSIAH PROPHET
Master Of The Metal
Pure Metal
1986

Stryper lite. You get all the hair with only half the talent.

For all the older metal heads in my church who fondly remember this album with a wistful gleam of nostalgia in their eyes (or maybe it’s a problem with the overhead lights), I have trouble holding in high esteem as I do, say, Stryper’s ‘To Hell With The Devil’. ‘Master Of The Metal’ seems a bit too contrived, just the right riffs with just the right Christian lyrics. About the only songs I listen to are “Heavy Metal Thunder” and “Master Of The Metal”. That and the high collectability of this CD are really the only reasons I have this in my collection.
