Profile Malachia were a short-lived California based metal/hard rock outfit formed in 1984 by bassist Wade A. Little. Many line-up changes till the final one and the band debuted with the ep “Under The Blade” came out in 1986. The band’s reputation started to grown up and playing around Los Angeles clubs and churches while a year later their full length album “Red Sunrise” released throught Victoria Ltd.. 

They played at a cool white metal festival back in the 80s together with Gardian (later Guardian), Vengeance (U.S.A.) and more. The band had great songwriting, very good and catchy tunes, memorable hooks and a great vocalist which in parts he has a bit of Geoff Tate, Michael Kiske and Rob Halford. Despite the quality of their music making, the big breakthrough never quite happened for Malachia. They changed their name to Bashan-Tyre and then, in 1990, to Vision.
