MELECHESH - New Album Out In February

Five years after their highly praised album, The Epigenesis, Melechesh return with a new album titled Enki. Almost all of the music and lyrics was again written and produced by Ashmedi. Melechesh spent one month in their rehearsal room in Hinzweiler (Germany) rehearsing the material before entering the recording studio in Athens, Greece. The band wanted a Mediterranean place to capture the essence of the band’s origins. Enki features 12 string electric guitars aside from the 6 string played on the entire album, for a heavier and subtly richer harmonic sound. The band also tuned their instruments to the pitch perfect 432 Hz frequency rather than the standardized 440 Hz one for a deeper sonic experience within the human psyche and in accordance to vibrations of the universe. Enki also features esteemed friends of the Melechesh society guest vocalists Max Cavalera (ex Sepultura, Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy,...) and Sakis Tolis (Rotting Christ) as well as guest lead by Rob Caggiano (ex Anthrax, Volbeat,...). With so many nationalities in the band Melechesh have become more comfortable at being labelled as an act from planet earth or just Jerusalem without adhering to any man-made virtual borders. To the band this is metaphorical rebellion. With this deep and personal album filled with metaphor, spiritual, and philosophical references, and further development of their own Mesopotamian metal, Melechesh are yet again ready to spread their sonic magic, enlightened revelations and art to the cosmos. Album will be released through Nuclear Blast Records and will hit the stores on 6th February 2015 in Europe, 9th February in UK and on 10th February in North America. Pre-orders are available at this location. Tracklist is below. Link

Enki tracklist:
01. Tempest Temper Enlil Enraged

05. Enki - Divine Nature Awoken
06. Metatron And Man

ESKAPI - Debut Release Out In December

Swedish depressive rock/black metal project Eskapi will release their debut mini album entitled Välkommen till (O)verkligheten on 22nd December through Art Of Propaganda. The project was formed in 2013 by C.L. (music) and J.G. (Ex-Lifelover, Vanhelga), responsible for vocals and lyrics. Here's what the two guys had to say:" In early 2013 both of us were trapped in our own versions of Hell. We decided to create music together in the quest to get perspective on our lives and this blessed curse. With no interest in making music that has already been made out of parasitical stage whores we tried to create something unique. We aimed to explore the world around is with music, words and misery. The name "Eskapi" means escapism - "A condition of escaping the reality", which we have a tendency to do. In March 2013 CL began to create the song "Hejdå". Since J.G have had a longing for a project centered around his lyrics for years, this was a moment where we immediately realized - this road is the one and only for us. The project is nothing more than an omission, like a white archive or a suicide note. Why do we do this? To explore our inner darkness. The creation process is nothing we design - it comes from nowhere inspired by the constant chaos surrounding us. We have not at a single moment doubt that this fills a meaningful prophecy compared to life in itself. If people are expecting something to please them or to get feel a feeling of community, they will, like the sheep's continue walking in total pointless footsteps. What we are giving away from us with this album is art created by two fireborned maniacs with a goal and a belief directed towards life and its naive dreams of a beautiful life. Only death is real! This is our (un)reality - and you're more than welcome to share it with us!" Tracklist and cover artwork are below. Link

Välkommen till (O)verkligheten tracklist:
01. Invant Vansinne
02. Vargar & Får
03. Narkotiska Känslor
04. Region Skåne
05. Till Dig (När Jag Försvinner)
06. Skillnader
07. Hejdå

Aeon Sable, a name that must already bring shivers to every and each soul fancying dark music out there. The band is one of the most productive and credible bands in the dark rock scene, but not only, with each new release, the German band expands the borders of the genre - let's say gothic rock, even though this is a bit unjust to say so for their musical creations. One year after the stunning "mini" album Aequinoctium Aeon Sable offers an ahead of time album named Visionaers. Aeon Sable become masters in creating vast atmospheric gothic rock soundscapes by making use of elements taken from post-rock and metal, even shoegaze, dark wave and cinematic music. Aeon Sable's fourth album reaches the heights that were set with previous albums, but it goes further. Thankfully also the production, final mix, mastering and artwork concept works in their favour. Visionaers is by all means an album showing now a completely consistent band that's expanding their own artistical limits and with that, maybe even unconsciously, writing the history of the genre, making it modern with an unpretentious approach. A must!
