End of the Age (COMPILATION) by Bride

"End Of The Age" is a best of CD which combines Bride's first three albums and two new songs ("Everybody Knows My Name" and "Same Ol' Sinner"). Pure Metal Records was sold to Star Song Music Group and a compilation is a quick way to recoup money since most of the songs have already been recorded. Star Song contracted Bride to record the two new songs as an incentive for Bride fans to buy the album. They had little other interest in the band and was not interested in signing Bride to a recording contract. Things changed once the album was released. The new song, "Everybody Knows My Name", went to #1 on the Christian Metal charts and stayed there for 14 weeks. Likewise, when "Same Ol' Sinner" was released, it stayed at #1 for 8 weeks. Star Song became interested very quick. Bride signed a three album deal with Star Song with their first of three albums to be put out on the new and revised Pure Metal label. This album was also released on the secular label 214 Records with no changes. The new Bride sound had changed from heavy metal to hard rock and they had changed the lineup once again to help with the new direction:

Dale Thompson - Vocals
Troy Thompson - Guitars
Jerry McBroom - Drums
Rick Foley - Bass

As zoe777 pointed out, it's worth having just for the two new songs. I really like this compilation. Although they left out som great songs, the ones they chose are top notch. Especially enjoyed the remastered sound, all the songs has really good quality on this one, even the ones from "Show No Mercy".

4 stars for solid compilation and two great new songs.
