MELECHESH - In The Studio Recording New Album

  • Print

Kings of Mesopotamian black/thrash metal, Melechesh, are currently in Athens, Greece recording their 6th full length album to be released worldwide via Nuclear Blast on a as of yet undisclosed date. The band had spent one month in their rehearsal room in Germany tweaking all the details and will spend the next six weeks in Athens recording the new album, tentatively entitled Enki.
Commented bandleader Ashmedi: "Again we chose to record in a Mediterranean area to capture the Melechesh essence. We have many good friends here and have toured with some Greek bands over the years and everyone here is being very helpful to this work. In keeping with our tradition all songs are diverse and tell different stories both lyrically and musically, from the black thrash to the ritualistic tribal tunes to the more in your face rocking and neck breaking songs. Last couple of years were extremely challenging for me and this rubbed on the album for the better, abstract moods such as post-enlightenment depth, sonic magick, anger and retribution. Metaphorically speaking, it is a Sumerian sonic deluge to cleanse us from drones, parasites and insects interpret that as you see fit." Link
