Meliah Rage - The Deep And Dreamless Sleep
I am not supposed to say this, but hell Iím still going to! I did this record because there was absolutely nobody who wanted to review this record. I will tell you the exact reason I also waited a long time before deciding to do this. I am familiar with this band, but only by accident. I bought an album of them, called Death Valley Dream, ages ago, in a store that sold second hand CDs and vinyls. I bought it because it was cheap and when I listened to it quickly it didnít sound bad either. When I got home I started to read the booklet, which made me think this bandís theme was all about religion. Iím not your average Satanism freak, but I really do hate Christianity and everything they brought into this world, by means of slavery and suppression. Well, I donít know if this band is religious or not, I donít care. Their album Iím going to review is called The Deep And Dreamless Sleep.  
 
So to conclude a long story, I felt I had to be of no prejudice before reviewing this record. I cannot say I donít like it because I do not agree with their lyrics, but for all I know, I misinterpret those lyrics. In fact, the music (and not the lyricsÖ) isnít that bad to listen to, except that it is totally standard crossbreed between old school heavy metal and speed metal, but hey, even that isnít the bad thing.
 
The bad thing is that the vocals do sound extremely awful and that is what bothers me. The guitar and drum combination is cheesy and will do well for a big crowd in an arena or something. I did read a review of this album on the metal encyclopedia, and I recommend that people who really want to know more about this album should read that one. I donít know who wrote that, but he (or she) is saying exactly what I think.
 
Anyways, I think Iím not the right person to judge about this album, but it still seems I will have to, so Iím going to do so! I think it is an average attempt to create something totally brilliant and let the media carry it to the top of the skyÖ Well, I think itís average and not more than that.
