About this album

This Present Wasteland is the ninth studio album by heavy metal band Metal Church. The album was released September 26, 2008 in Europe. This is the only Metal Church album to feature guitarist Rick Van Zandt.
This Present Wasteland sold about 920 copies in the U.S. in the week following its release. This was their last album before their second breakup from July 2009 to October 2012.

The album cover was chosen from contest entries submitted on Myspace.

Allmusic reviewer Alex Henderson stated that while the album was not “essential”, it was “a solid and well-executed effort” by the band. Henderson singled out “Breathe Again”, “Monster”, “A War Never Won” and “Company of Sorrow” in particular as standout tracks on the album.
