Not to be confused with the US band Melidian. 'The 4th Dimension' out September 23 through from The Vaults Records.

Press release:

Let’s go back to the 80s. Back then, there was no style boundaries. You were either into heavy metal rock or you were not. Bands like Scorpions, Pretty Maids, W.A.S.P. or TNT gathered a legion of loyal fans around them looking for the thrill of screaming guitars and epic melodies. More than fans, we were family. The heavy rock family. 

Many bands have, since then, tried to capture the feeling of those days. Many have failed miserably, but others have succeeded to give us a glimpse of that golden era. Among the latter, Danish collective MERIDIA N is one of the most brilliant. They’ve been shaping their sound in three studio albums since 2013 and even in an unapologetic covers EP where they showed their diversity of influences. But now it’s time for a whole different ball game. Enter “The 4th Dimension”.As with many quintessential albums, the latest studio offering from the Danish five-piece comes, musically, with a wide variety of songs, from real heavy numbers (“The Road Back To Hell”, “Warning Shots”) to really melodic hard rock songs (from which “Say That You Want Me” is a perfect example). 

Not forgetting epic songs (“Dreamers”) and fast tracks like “Remove Your Crown”. As in the 80s, no boundaries, no overthinking. “The attitude was ‘Everything is possible and anything goes’”, guitarist Marco Angioni comments about the writing process. “If a song is good and we all like it, it goes on the album”. 

Again, an attitude that screams “80s” from the top of its lungs.Produced, mixed and mastered by Angioni (a renown producer himself, with bands such as Tygers Of Pan Tang, Steel Inferno and Iron Fire in his resume) and recorded in Angioni Studios between October 2021 and January 2022, “The 4th Dimension” is one of those career-defining albums in which Meridian reaches full maturity and shoot for the stars. 

Tracks:

1. Warning Shots

2. Life Is Today

3. Stay

4. Follow Your Heart

5. Trust

6. Dreamers 

7. Say That You Want Me

8. The Road Back To Hell

9. Remove Your Crown

10. The Fourth Dimension

The only album on the main site is an EP from 2018. Anyone listen to these guys? Are they any good? I'll listen to those songs after work, but someone stop me if I'll be wasting my time. ;}

Just heard that 'Dreamers' song and its awesome. This release has definitely been bookmarked. Don't know the band, despite a familiar band name. Is there a prog or metal band with the same or a similar name? (and no, definitely not thinking of Melidian)

    • Cool song. If ADV is strictly hired to play keys, it should be fine. 
    • Ooh, nice!  I'll have to revisit the first album. 
    • Ugh... I hate you so much. You know I hate you, right? ;} I've never seen either iteration. 
    • These are sounding pretty good.

    • Imagine a world where Andrew Wood didn’t die and Mother Love Bone was still creating awesome music!
    • “My Icarian Flight” featuring the one and only ADV 😜  
    • lol, this was my thought process too. What about Confess?! I like both bands, but not at the expense of one of them. 
    • I do have to give him credit for sounding exactly the same as he did in 1989...
