Commented guitarist and band’s founder Anthony Nichols: “MELIAH RAGE is pleased to announce our recent signing with Italy’s own Metal On Metal Records. We look forward to working with Jowita and Simone, who have already proven to be not only die-hard metal fans themselves, but true professionals. Our new record “Dead To The World” is set to hit the streets this summer, and features the return of Paul Souza to the fold on vocals.”

These US power/thrash veterans probably don’t need much introduction, as classics like “Kill To Survive” or “Solitary Solitude” made their name well know in the scene. Formed in 1987 in Boston, MA, MELIAH RAGE soon signed a deal with Epic Records, that released their first 3 albums (including the live EP). After some time off during the period when grunge was hip and good bands were being dropped one by one, MELIAH RAGE came back together in 1996 to record another album and until now released 5 CDs, all through independent labels.
