Meliah Rage

Meliah Rage was formed in Boston in 1985 and attracted the attention of Epic Records, who released their first two albums along with a live EP. Though their music was strong (a powerful thrashy metal style in the vein of prime Metal Church), they didn't seem to get the push one might have expected given their major label status, and following their last CBS release in 1990 they faded from view. Two years later an album/demo was recorded with a new rhythm section featuring none other than Godsmack frontman Sully Erna on drums, but it went unreleased, and it was not until 1996 that, with another new rhythm section, Death Valley Dream was released. After another period of inactivity, the aforementioned 1992 recordings were unearthed and released under the title Unfinished Business in 2003, and shortly afterward the band reformed and have prospered since, sticking to the power/thrash style of their earlier albums.
