Veteran Massachusetts metallers MELIAH RAGE have released a video for their cover version of "Halo Of Flies", originally recorded by ALICE COOPER on the legendary rocker's 1971 album "Killer". MELIAH RAGE reunited with singer Paul Souza this past winter to lay down the track to be used as a bonus cut on the remixed version of the band's 2004 release, "Barely Human". The song was recorded and produced by Peter Rutcho at Red Devil Recording and mixed at Damage Studios. The video was produced by Branden Maxham and Brad Piche of Omnidawn Productions.
The remixed version of "Barely Human", to be titled "Barely Human Remix", was mixed by Ted Ostrander at Red Devil Recording in Stoughton, Massachusetts and will be released later this spring. Guitarist Anthony Nichols has always felt that "Barely Human" contained some of the band's strongest material, but time constraints during the original mixing process in 2004 led to less-than-stellar results.
MELIAH RAGE is currently recording its next album, "Dead To The World", for a summer release.
MELIAH RAGE's original singer Mike Munro has become very dedicated to his church and recently spent time volunteering in Haiti. He subsequently felt these and other missions of goodwill would not allow him the flexibility of schedule to tour with MELIAH RAGE.
Souza recorded two albums with MELIAH RAGE — "Barely Human" and 2006's "The Deep And Dreamless Sleep". In addition, he toured with the band when it supported METAL CHURCH across the U.S. in 2007.
"We feel very fortunate that we have the ability to work with Paul, complete this CD and play some shows," explained MELIAH RAGE founder Anthony Nichols.
Souza was the singer when the band toured with METAL CHURCH across the U.S. in 2007.
