The Sumerian thrashing Mesopotamian black metal act MELECHESH from Jerusalem and the Netherlands released their 6th album "Enki" earlier this year, an album that I haven't really got time to spin around, hopefully soon, anyway I did a quick listen to it on Spotify and I really liked what I heard, so why not take one of their tunes today.
MELECHESH is an ethnically Assyrian and Armenian black metal and Mizrahi metal band that originated in Jerusalem, Israel and is currently based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Ashmedi started the band as a solo project in 1993. In the following year, guitarist Moloch and drummer Lord Curse were added to the line-up. The band's goal was to create a type of black metal incorporating extensive Middle Eastern influences mainly based on Assyrian (Mesopotamian) and occult themes (both musically and lyrically); the band invented the title "Mesopotamian metal" or "Sumerian Black Thrashing Metal" to best describe their type of metal.
Todays tune "Multiple Truths" was the first single release from "Enki", enjoy!
