MELIAH RAGE recently shot a video for the song "Hour Glass", the first single off the band's upcoming album, "Masquerade".

Check out photos from the video shoot at this location.

"Masquerade" will be released in late spring via Screaming Ferret/Metro City Records. The CD was recorded at The Outpost in Stoughton, Massachusetts and was 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."

The track listing for the CD is as follows:

01. Lost Or Found (7:57)
02. Chosen (6:15)
03. History Will Tell (6:47)
04. Dreamer (5:09)
05. Seeker (6:58)
06. Hour Glass (5:06)
07. Masquerade (6:00)
08. Last Rites (4:56) (feat. Ronny Munroe)
09. Whatever It Takes (7:32)

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.
