Melechesh - Prepare To Enter The Studio

Official press release

On April 10 Mesopotamian metal pioneers Melechesh will enter the studio to record their 5th and as of yet untitled album for a period of 4-5 weeks... In unprecedented move in Metal, the band has chosen to record the album in Istanbul in an attempt to capture the inspiring surroundings. Babajim Studios which opened their doors this week is run by some of the elite sound Engineers in Turkey. The album is set to be released in summer 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Commented Ashmedi: "We have been looking for a place to record that can offer us an inspiring surrounding. We also decided to stay true to our spirits, to break the Mold (again) and also to defy the norm, hence we will record in Istanbul; you see the norm is to record westwards it is rather customary, we want to head eastwards. So, Istanbul seemed the best place since This is the city where the east and west meet, mesh, clash, blend, collide etc. and has been as such for milleniums. The music is definitely Melechesh and as always, this album has its own characteristic."

The band is now locked again in the rehearsing studio with Guitarist Moloch arriving to Amsterdam next week from Virginia, USA. The song writing is 90% complete.

Awesome, as for samples, they had posted a live video on their myspace blog a while back showcasing an instrumental version of one of their new songs, the sound quality was pretty good for a live recording and it was played from end to end so that might be something you'd want to check out
