MELIAH RAGE: In Mixing Mode

November 8, 2008

Veteran Massachusetts metallers MELIAH RAGE are currently mixing their as-yet-untitled new album at The Outpost in Stoughton, Massachusetts for an early 2009 release. The CD will be mastered at the end of November by producer Rich Spillberg (WARGASM),who has worked with everyone from STEEL ASSASSIN to JOSH GROBAN. According to the group, "The music on the record is much faster and heavier than the past few records and will feature a guest appearance by METAL CHURCH frontman Ronny Munroe."

MELIAH RAGE this past summer announced the return of the band's
original frontman, Mike Munro.

After singer Paul Souza exited the band late last year, a six-month search for a suitable replacement began, which led to a dead end. That is, until producer Rich Spillberg suggested that they contact Munro and get back to their roots.

Having left MELIAH RAGE over a decade ago, Munro is back for more, joining bandmates Anthony Nichols (guitar),Jim Koury (guitar),Darren Lourie (bass),and Stu Dowie (drums).

MELIAH RAGE had its latest CD, "The Deep and Dreamless Sleep" (2006),released in Europe on July 2007 via Locomotive Music. The band's seventh release overall, and third for Screaming Ferret Wreckords, the CD was recorded at Danger Multitrack Studios in Providence, RI, and Sherwood Forest Studios in Bedford, MA.

Originally formed in 1985, MELIAH RAGE was often associated with the then-burgeoning thrash metal scene, which resulted in a major label contract and their 1988 metal classic, "Kill to Survive". In the ensuing years, the group played with some of metal's most renowned names — SLAYER, MEGADETH, TESTAMENT, MANOWAR, MORBID ANGEL, METAL CHURCH, and NUCLEAR ASSAULT. The group also included GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna in their ranks (as a drummer) during the early '90s.
