Comments: This has to be like the coolest Metal Church song ever.  I found a song called "Big Guns" on the internet and downloaded it, but it doesn't sound like any song I ever heard on any of my Metal Church albums, and I couldn't find it in the official Metal Church discography or on any bootleg discographies.  It sounds just like Metal Church.  Anybody know about this?  It definitely rocks.  Anyway, back to this song, which, like I said, is like the coolest Metal Church song ever.  I think I'm going to tab Merciless Onslaught sometime in the near future, too. Anyway, the tab came out excellent IMO, and if you spot a mistake, point it out to me mo-fo.  That's what I thought.  Peace, Cats and Kittens.
