A forgotten classic, without a doubt… remastered!

While Boston’s Meliah Rage segued into thrashier territory with the admittedly-spectacular “Solitary Solitude”, their finest moment has to be the debut “Kill to Survive”. This record is a stone-cold heavy metal classic, fusing classic-sounding riffs with incendiary thrash intensity, epic vocals and an acrobatic, multifarious grasp of the disparate elements that contribute to the overall sound. One could say that “Kill to Survive” feels a lot like Metal Church, but there is some Metallica sprinkled in there as well amid an ephemeral smattering of Flotsam and Jetsam’s eccentricities. A very compact listen at only seven tracks including the lengthy instrumental eponymous cut (on the original, the Japanse bonus track “Kill to Surive” is now added).

 

MELIAH RAGE – SOLITARY SOLITUDE

Available as:
Deluxe 2-CD
LP (180 grams, black, clear and red vinyl)

 

Classic Thrash Metal from 1990, remastered!

Despite still hanging on and actively performing even today, Meliah Rage still has not climbed the ladder of heavy metal. Back in 1990, they tried to leap forward a bit by hardening their sound, maybe become a bit more known. The result was their sophomore effort, the classic Metal album “Solitary Solitude”. This album still retains some of the group’s US Power Metal roots, but overall an even sharper turn towards thrash has been taken, resulting in a mostly mid-paced record that is comparable to Anthrax and even some of Overkill’s stuff.
