Meliah Rage—Ragin' On

When fellow Metal Inquisition staffer Sergeant D first came to my house in the mid 90's, a couple of things caught his attention that led him to conclude that my brother and I were no posers. First, he saw that my brother and I had an Order From Chaos poster in our bathroom. He then saw a video of my brother (rocking a mustache) interviewing Mille from Kreator. These things must have been impressive, but I think the one thing that put us over the top in his book was our Meliah Rage album.

Meliah Rage, to paraphrase a previous post, were like Rodney Dangerfield and got no respect. Dudes had well painted record covers (I mean, just look at the super angry native american/skeleton dude who is clearly ragin'), better than average thrashing abilities, and amazing videos. Check out the deep political statements in this video regarding censorship. These guys are deep thinkers, they are saying that censorship is like a modern day witch hunt, a comparison that had never been made before....since the Rush song "Witch Hunt", and ten thousand high school papers. Listen to the soulful vocals, admire the well groomed beard, be amazed by the flimsy tombstones that are clearly made of cardboard.

Luckily for all of us, we don't have to speak about Meliah Rage in the past tense. Oh no. My brother sent me the link to their site today. They're alive and well... these dudes are still thrashin'. They even have a new bass player. Check out his sweet pants, he must be looking for a JNCO sponsorship.

Lastly, you should know that the singer from Godsmack was the drummer in Meliah Rage back in the day. Also, a character in the video game Guilty Gear was named after the band. But who cares. Go buy "Kill To Survive", kick back and rock out like its the spring of 1990.


  1. Live Kill is also an amazing record!

    PS my word verification for this post is askkk. haha!

  2. "Kill to Survive" is the only one I still have. I sold "Solitary Solitude" years ago 'cause at the time I felt it was boring, but I should get it again just because the album title is fucking awesome. I mean... "Solitary Solitude", that's like saying "Watery Water" or something. Classic.

  3. this band is fucking terrible. i do remember that Order From Chaos poster in your bathroom, and also the drawer full of Meatshits demos by your brother's bed.

    ZOMG @ "Solitary Solitude"!! how postmodern!
