MICHELLE MELDRUM passed away at the age of 39 in May 2008. LIFER stands as a proud tribute to MICHELLE and her lifetime commitment to creating and performing music. MICHELLE wrote the material for the album with drummer GENE HOGLAN (Testament, Death, Dark Angel, Dethklok), along with new members bassist/guitarist LAURA CHRISTINE (Warface) and vocalist MICHELE MADDEN (Tourette's). MICHELLE'S untimely demise before any of her guitar tracks for LIFER were able to be laid down led the three remaining members to come together in tribute to her, to honor MICHELLE'S vision of the album, withLAURA CHRISTINE playing the majority of the rhythm and bass guitars, as well as all the leads. Partial proceeds from the album will go to MICHELLE'S son Jake Thomas who she left behind when she passed.
