“Roxx Records is pleased to announce our next special Limited Edition remaster and re-issue with you – it was a very personal one for us and quite the undertaking for all involved. We are very proud to bring the music and story of Los Angeles, California’s very own MALACHIA back to life for everyone to enjoy! Malachia burst on to the Christian metal scene in 1984 and were very well received with a metal style very reminiscent of early Queensryche. The band’s first full release was on vinyl only and very limited to only around 200 copies and was titled ‘Under The Blade’. This vinyl release is nearly impossible to find today unless you are willing to pay high dollar for a copy on the very rare occasion one pops up on the market. It was also released in limited quantity on cassette, but never on CD. Up next the band would release what could be considered their swan song with the full length album ‘Red Sunrise’ that was available on vinyl and cassette only, never officially on CD. All the while the band was playing live anywhere and everywhere they possibly could, playing many shows including making some festival appearances like the Metal Mardi Gras show in California in 1987. Up next, and what would ultimately be the last fully released and marketed track from the band, would be a song that made its way on to a very high profile compilation at the time called California Metal II, which the band actually recorded under the name Vision and titled ‘Runaway’. This compilation was headed up by veteran musicians and producers John and Dino Elefante who gave the track a very polished and professional feel. After that the band would attempt to continue on but, alas, the band would ultimately come to an end before ever officially releasing any music again. The band had actually recorded quite a few more demo tracks over the next few years, but those tracks were never released… until now. Roxx Records is very excited to bring you a true collectible and a little piece of Christian metal history back to life. This very special 2-disc limited edition set has been meticulously remastered and restored, with many never before released demos being culled from the only known source of some of these tracks – a sole cassette tape! Working with Wade Little of Malachia we began to work on putting this whole compilation together, gathering the tracks, reviewing many band archival photos, flyers and band promotional items. For the first time ever the original full length album Red Sunrise and the California Metal II track have been completely remixed by producer Ken Roberts. Those tracks, along with the tracks from Under The Blade and all of the unreleased demo tracks, have been completely remastered and restored by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound for a total of 31 tracks stretched over a full 2-disc set. This compilation is not just a musical representation, but a complete story and visual glimpse into the lives of a classic Christian metal band from the 80s that tells the story of a band and their mission to rock the world and spread the word of God. Featuring new artwork, layout and design provided by Scott Waters of No Life Til Metal, new liner notes, track-by-track write-ups and stories from all of the original band members in a full-color 16-page booklet and limited to a one time pressing of only 500 copies.”. -Roxx Records
