Malachia

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Malachia - Red Sunrise Red Sunrise
Pop Used - LP VLP 002 Victoria Ltd.
1987 Original Still In Shrink Wrap. Debut Full Length From California Based Christian Metal Band. “A Much More Polished Work When Compared To Under The Blade, Red Sunrise Finds The Band Re-Recording The Six Songs Off Its Debut In Addition To Two New Tracks In “Red Sunrise” And “Sightless Eyes”. What We End Up With Is Technical Keyboard Driven Hard Rock And Metal With A Heavy Eighties Influence. Yes, Keyboards Play A Significant Role Here But More Often Than Not It Is A Complementary One That Rarely Strays Into Overriding Territory. Malachia, Otherwise, Delivers A Sound That Can Best Be Described As Dark, Moody And Heavy, All The While Reflecting A Vibe That Almost Comes Goth-Like In Its Capacity. Give The Band A Great Deal Of Credit, At The Same Time, For The Consistency Of Its Songwriting In That The Albums Compositions, While Not Remarkable Or Outstanding, Are All Well Constructed And Hold Up Under Repeated Play. “In Christ We Rock” And “Let It Go” Are Two Energetic Hard Rockers, While “Lonely Is The Night” And “Mark Of The Beast” Slow Things Down To A More Mid-Tempo Pace. “Master’s Call” Stands Out As A Very Fine Emotionally Charged Ballad. To Say That Malachia Is A Talented Band Would Be An Understatement. Lead Vocalist Ken Pike, For Example, Brings A Three And A Half Octave Range Voice That Kind Of Reminds Me Of Geoff Tate (Queensryche). Guitarist Jeffrey James, A Graduate Of The Guitar Institute Of Technology, Impresses As Well, Showcasing His Playing Best On “Sightless Eyes” And “Heaven Or Hell”. The Added Touch Of Steve “Chima” Ayola On Keyboards Helps To Give The Band Its “Technical Keyboard” Driven Sound. Bassist Wade A. Little And Drummer Dave Devaughn Round Out The Rhythm Section.” – Angelic Warlord... more details
