Mesopotamian kings of blackened thrash metal MELECHESH have announced the addition of drummer Sasha Horn to the group's ranks.Commented MELECHESH mainman, songwriter, singer and guitarist Ashmedi: "After a lengthy search, MELECHESH are proud to announce the inclusion of new drummer Sasha 'Sin' Horn. Sin as in the Mesopotamian moon god. He will be appearing on the upcoming album, which we will follow up with more details. Meanwhile, he flew in from the USA to our rehearsal room in Germany to work with the band on new material and meet the label guys and the chemistry was great. His drumming skills will sure bring in an extra kick to the new album." Since there were rumors and uncertainties of the current second guitarist of MELECHESH, the pioneering band clarified the situation in the following statement: "After one show, it became obvious things wouldn't work out with Sirus, so we mutually agreed to go separate ways. For now, the position is not vacant until a great talent crosses our ways. Ashmedi will track guitars and former guitarist and longtime friend Moloch might be flying to the studio for recordings, but not touring as well. We have two great touring guitarist who are friends of ours and will step in as live session musicians." MELECHESH is currently writing material for its upcoming sixth album. The band's latest CD and Nuclear Blast debut, "The Epigenesis", was released in 2010 and received rave reviews all over the globe, followed by eight tours with the likes of SEPTICFLESH and NILE.
