MELECHESH To Release 'Enki' Album In February

Mesopotamian black/thrash pioneers MELECHESH will release their new album, "Enki", on February 10 (one day earlier internationally) via Nuclear Blast. The follow-up to 2010's "The Epigenesis" will feature the following track listing:

01. Tempest Temper Enlil Enraged
02. The Pendulum Speaks
03. Lost Tribes
04. Multiple Truths
05. Enki - Divine Nature Awoken
06. Metatron And Man
07. The Palm The Eye And Lapis Lazuli
08. Doorways To Irkala
09. The Outsiders

Almost all of the music and lyrics was again written and produced by MELECHESH mainman Ashmedi.

MELECHESH spent one month in its rehearsal room in Hinzweiler, Germany preparing 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 (SOULFLY, SEPULTURA) and Sakis Tolis (ROTTING CHRIST) as well as guest lead by Rob Caggiano (VOLBEAT, ANTHRAX).

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.
