MELECHESH To Enter Studio In January

Israel's MELECHESH will enter Woodhouse Studios (SAMAEL, GRIP INC., THERION, MOONSPELL) in Hagen, Germany in January 2006 to record their fourth full-length album, entitled "Emissaries". The mixing will take place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands with renowned producer Attie Bauw (JUDAS PRIEST, HALFORD, SCORPIONS, FIGHT). The tracking will take three weeks and mixing around two weeks. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Sand Grain Universe", "Deluge of Delusional Dreams: Act I. Cast Tempest From the East; Act II. Ashur's Retaliation", and "Touching the Spheres of Sephiroth".

"Emissaries" will include approximately 10-11 tracks that will clearly carry the MELECHESH flag, thematically and musically. When asked about the subject matter covered in the new songs, guitarist/vocalist Ashmedi stated, "The album will encompass what MELECHESH have always stood for: Sumerian/Mesopotamian and other dark Near Eastern mythos and mysticism including the cosmic connection and the Occult. Musically the songs will have the MELECHESH characteristic sound with a variation and evolution just like we have done for every album; I am now busy with the pre production and demoing the last couple of songs, however, I prefer letting the music speak for itself."

"Emissaries" is tentatively scheduled for an April/May 2006 release through Osmose Productions. The North American release will be handled by Osmose Productions/The End Records.
