MELIAH RAGE: Live Dates Announced

Boston metallers MELIAH RAGE have scheduled the following dates:

Jul. 21 - Snowbound Club - Winchendon, MA
Aug. 24 - Good Times Emporium Rock Club - Somerville, MA
Oct. 20 - Mark's Showplace - Bedford, NH (w/ OVERKILL)

MELIAH RAGE guitarist Anthony Nichols has been busy writing music for the band's next record, tentatively due early next year. According to the group, "the music thus far is heavier and more riff-oriented than the last two releases, but has all the elements of classic MELIAH RAGE." A remastered release of the 1996 classic "Death Valley Dream" is also in the works.

MELIAH RAGE's latest CD, "The Deep and Dreamless Sleep" (2006), is 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.
