MELIAH RAGE Reform, Complete Work On New CD

The Boston-based metal band MELIAH RAGE have reformed and recorded a brand new studio album titled "Barely Human". It is scheduled for release in early 2004 on Screaming Ferret Wreckords. The official release date is forthcoming.

Guitarist Anthony Nichols, guitarist Jim Koury and bass guitarist Jesse Johnson, all original members, are joined by new vocalist Paul Souza and drummer Barry Spillberg (formerly of WARGASM) on "Barely Human". Original vocalist Mike Munro decided not to take part in the MELIAH RAGE reunion in order to focus on family matters.

Tracks on "Barely Human" include "Ungodly", "Hate Machine", "Hell Song", "Church of the Day", "Invincible" and "The Wrong Place".

"Barely Human" was produced by Joe Moody and Nichols. Moody also recorded and mixed the album at Danger Multitrack in Providence, RI. All songs were written by Nichols and Souza except "The Wrong Place", which was written by Nichols, Souza and Clark Lush, and "Ungodly", which was written by Nichols, Souza and Spillberg. Nichols did all the musical arrangements and Souza wrote all the lyrics for the album. Bob Mayo, formerly of WARGASM and a one-time MELIAH RAGE member, plays bass on "Invincible".

MELIAH RAGE's previously unreleased album "Unfinished Business", featuring GODSMACK's Sully Erna on drums, is on sale now at Screaming Ferret Wreckords' web site:

"Unfinished Business" was originally recorded in 1992. MELIAH RAGE had left Epic Records and these songs were intended as demos in order to secure a new record deal.
