On Friday my singers got kicked out of our practice space.
We use a local church to practice in, they got the key from the former pastor. They were working on their vocals by singing along to Metallica and Shinedown.

A woman came to the door and heard a bit of Ride The Lightning and called the pastor, for she feared the church was possessed! The pastor came to the rescue. The singers heard the door being unlocked, and naturally, tore ass downstairs and hid. Alas, they were found. The pastor took it surprisingly well, didn't yell at them or anything, but they were still kicked out.

Now where will we practice?
GHOST BLOWJOB!
WHOOO! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Your house, a studio, a bathroon, acoustically. i dont know men. Maybe you can tell the pastor that the singer found god and he should let you play inside

Rent a practice space, there are plenty where I live and if you look around for long enough you can find some awesome deals.

At one point,t here were five of us in the band, the guy asked for 15 quid and said we can stay in as long as we wanted, gave us the pass code and told us to lock up when we're done; perhaps you'll find his twin brother or something...

how were they being disrespectful?

WHile I don't see it as disrespectful, I'm sure many would see playing metallica in a church as disrespectful. however, if the pastor said they could practice there, he should have been prepared for whatever music involved, if he had a problem with metal he should have asked what they would be playing first.

The Bible is awesome. Revelation is so badass, I mean, dragons and angels and the devil having an epic battle in the clouds? Badass.

it is sorta snarky that y'all got a key from the ex-pastor. As EX-pastor, he lacks the authority to give you any sort of permissions in that building.

That said, it is a great story. The lady thought the BUILDING was POSSESSED with Metal. C'mon! That's classic.

Metallica isn't an anti-christian band, so they weren't really doing anything bad. It's not like they were singing Imortal or anything.

I don't know where you live, so i can tell you where to practise ¬_¬

Although the reason for you being kicked out is quite funny

Obviously the kids weren't supposed to be there, why else would they run and hide when they heard someone coming in? They weren't kicked out because of the music they were playing, they were kicked out because they were trespassing.

For the people saying to practice in the church parking lot or on the roof, grow up. It's not the church's fault - they had no right to be there in the first place.

On topic, OP, see if you can practice at one of your band member's houses. Also look into renting a practice space.

Yeah but singing a song in a church (depending upon how uptight the church is) that includes the phrases "electric chair", "switch of death", and "I don't want to die", is a fairly big

wait...you tried to play metallica in a church and are now complaining that they kicked you out

Black then white are all I see,
in my infancy, red and yellow then came to be.
