Melechesh

Originally a solo project established in 1993 by vocalist/guitarist Melechesh Ashmedi, Melechesh -- the band -- were one of the first death metal/black metal groups to emerge from the city of Jerusalem. Guitarist Moloch and drummer Lord Curse were recruited the following year, and Melechesh quickly began developing their admittedly extreme but culturally relevant "Mesopotamian metal" by combining Middle Eastern music and history with heavy metal. By naming their first demo As Jerusalem Burns...Al' Intisar and openly admitting to Satanic worship in interviews, Melechesh understandably gained both local notoriety and a police rap sheet, seeing as such heretical behavior is literally illegal in that holiest of cities. Then again, there's no such thing as bad press, and all of this hullabaloo only served to fuel the band's fast-rising underground profile, and scored Melechesh the opportunity to release their The Siege of Lachish EP via the Devilish Music Propaganda label.

Come 1996, with bassist Al'Hazred having joined their merry crew, Melechesh also agreed to re-record As Jerusalem Burns for an official CD release, but, more than anything else, this inauspicious debut mostly served to prove that Melechesh's musical abilities had yet to catch up to the controversy that preceded them. By then, their geographic location had also become a limiting factor, Jerusalem not exactly being known for its bustling music industry. So, having tired of nearly impossible working conditions and rare concert opportunities, beginning in 1998 the members of Melechesh, minus drummer Lord Curse, started migrating to Continental Europe: Moloch to France, the other two to the Netherlands. Then, after securing a new record deal with French independent Osmose Productions, Melechesh achieved a major coup when they convinced renowned Absu drummer Proscriptor (real name Russ Givens) to perform on their international debut, 2001's Djinn.

In the end, the long wait had been well worth it, since this landmark release most certainly met, even exceeded, prior expectations for the band's vaunted "Mesopotamian metal." A string of international concert dates followed, and a promo video was even recorded for the track "Genies, Sorcerers and Mesopotamian Nights" before Melechesh finally took some time off to bask in their newfound underground fame. Three years later, they were back with another acclaimed album named Sphynx, and after welcoming new drummer Xul (real name Yuri Rinkel), Melechesh unleashed arguably their finest opus to date in late 2006, entitled Emissaries. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

More fables from the book of lies. Great music second to My fav Obituary

pissed off jews rule!
Holy s**t this is f**king metal! Nile can suck a fat c**k, these guys rock harder than Nile could ever hope for. Brutal riffs, black metal atmosphere, Middle Eastern musical influence, and interesting lyrics. Nile only has two of those down.
Between these guys and Orphaned Land... I had no idea Israel was so metal...
Sounds like Nile took a little shot of black metal into its vein...

Dear dtrain666: if you really enjoy spending your time berating others' musical tastes, do it to their faces, you idiot.
This is cool stuff.
cerdom
What do these guys think of Jews? I'm just wondering, because they are satanic but from Israel.
Yes I do say that the comparisons to Amon Amarth are deserved. But, this is really in the whole theme aspect. I believe that while Amon Amarth is better this band's music is not sub-par a good listen and I think I may have to take this over Nile, although Nile is an incredible band their very old stuff just idk. Very glad I discovered this band a great listen and their history is lolful and very interesting.
Nice.

Like Amon Amarth - Historical, brutal, metal with a theme. Cool. The artwork is bad asss too.
dtrain666
Holy f**k, metal out of israel... I didn't think it was possible. Jesus christ willow get a f**king life, this is like the 15th page i've seen that same stupid post on. You're not funny and your musical tastes suck more c**k then the members of the bands you listen to, and thats a lot of c**k...
praetorian_l y c a n t h r o p e
Yo, godsmack boy, we don't want to hear it. We want to listen to metal, not junk
this band is incredible. although their music is nothing like that of amon amarth, they remind me of them in that they tell cultural stories and use middle eastern sounds. so far i've heard one song, but they sound like a keeper.
Hails to all!

Way to tear up the Holy City!
