MELECHESH       Emissaries
Osmose Productions (release: October 28th, 2006)

As usually, change of scene guaranteed with MELECHESH and their Mesopotamian or Sumerian Black Metal, as you want, and it's already the Israelis' fourth production, who have relocated to Europe in '98 due to problems with Jerusalem's religious authorities. Even if an Ukrainian and a Dutch members are in the band for now, their roots are not denied, on the contrary, since a 5000 years old Sumerian text has been transcribed and used for some song writings, which musically keep this so typical oriental side obviously, thanks to the use of local instruments notably.
So, if you want to clear your mind from the usual clichés of Black Metal and make a mystical journey to a distant country, the ticket amount is about $15, drinks not included !...Laurent
