This past November, Meliah Rage frontman Mike Munro — a deeply faithful Christian — applied his carpentry skills, along with a team of 20, in Haiti for eight days to build a second floor on a school house in St. Michel. The school serves 450 children in the area and there is also an orphanage housing 29 children on the site.
Monadnock Bible Conference Center has a program reaching out to Haiti with short-term mission trips 8-10 times per year (both teams of builders as well as medical personnel).
More pictures from the trip can be found at this location.
Meliah Rage recently spent time in the studio putting the finishing touches on a remix of the 2004 record “Barely Human”. Overseen by Ted Ostrander at Red Devil Studio in Stoughton, Masschusetts, the new version of the LP will include one freshly recorded bonus track — a cover version of the Alice Cooper song “Halo of Flies” recorded by producer Pete Rutcho. This is the first cover song Meliah Rage has ever done.
“Masquerade”, the latest album from Meliah Rage, was released in September 2009 via Screaming Ferret/Metro City Records. The CD was recorded at The Outpost in Stoughton, Massachusetts and was mastered in November 2008 by producer Rich Spillberg (Wargasm), who has worked with everyone from Steel Assassin to Josh Groban. According to the group, “The music on the record is much faster and heavier than the past few records and features a guest appearance by Metal Church frontman Ronny Munroe.”
Meliah Rage shot a video for the song “Hour Glass”, the first single off “Masquerade”. The clip was directed by Brad Piche and produced by Branden Maxham.
