Okay here is band that every Absu fan will fall in love with. Proscriptor used to play drums for this band (and we all know how sick that guy is). However, a new guy replaced him, he sounds okay based on the new track Rebirth Of The Nemesis you can listen to at www.myspace.com/melechesh along with two tracks from the Sphynx album which is a fucking masterpiece if you ask me, lets hope the new album can outdo it. The new song blew me away, I didnt think they would keep up the good work, but they did! Im so looking forward to hold this album in my hands. They are from Israel, I would call them blackened thrash just like Absu, but the thing with Melechesh is, that you can hear that they are from Israel, because of the song structure, their melodies and folk elements which sounds amazing. Their new album is called Emissaries and is set to be released on October 30th through Osmose Productions.

One of my favourite bands, I think they're actually thousands of times better than Absu... their last album "Djinn" is a Black Metal masterpiece, original, fast, haunting with a lot of atmosphere... they also managed to create the two greatest BM instrumentals: "The Arrival Ritual" and "Caravans To Ur".... I also love their debut more classic Black Metal "As Jerusalem Burns... Al Intisar"... specialy the song "Devil's Night"...

A must check for everyone.

their last album is Emissaries. it is coming out on 10.30. yeah.

anyways, I never heard of this band, but I read it somewhere that they were forced to leave from Israel, due for religious reasons... that's good in my book.

any recommendations?

I've downloaded some songs from the Shpynx album and I really liked it. One hell of a band, I hope I can find more stuff from them. Certainly one of the best bands I've heard

As is stated they are a great band from Israel originally.
But none of the band members live there anymore (have left quite a few years ago already)
Two of them now live in the Netherlands and one in France.
Sphynx certainly is their masterpiec up to now. Can't wait to hear Emissaries

I know that this band had to leave Israel after the release of "As Jerusalem Burns... Al Intisar" was released because in that country satanism is banned... I don't know if it's a tre fact, maybe someone from Israel could help us... anyway, this band is certainly not Satanist anymore and if you ask me they had found a very interesting concept for their albums.

Detric the whole thing is pretty unclear. the official site sais:

'Melechesh run into "legal" complications due to "Alleged" Dark Cult activities in the Holy Cities of Jerusalem and Bethlehem. The authorities wrongfully wanted Melechesh members! A few years later all was cleared.'

but MA sais 'Problems between Melechesh and the strictly religious people in Jerusalem forced the band to relocate with members going to The Netherlands and France where they could continue work without the hassle from religious authorities'. it sounds different to me.

also Wikipedia sais 'Due to variuous personal and professional reasons, the band members were forced to relocate to France and the Netherlands in 1998' wich is the unclearest referrence there is.

anyways, hope this get's you an idea of things.

Wow, I don't believe I haven't posted here yet.

My friend got me into this band a number of months ago and they were impressive. The Sphynx album was the first of theirs I heard and my favourite to date.

I knew they relocated but didn't know the reasons why. Reading Damnated's explanation I'm not surprised. Anyone downloaded that new song yet? I have but haven't got round to giving it a listen.

Well nevertheless, the police state that Israel is , probably wouldnt hesitate to put pressure or hassle the band due to the orthodox community protesting because of rumors of satanists up and around jerusalem supposedly desecrating places. Its crap, the only religious places desecrated are those of religious fanatics lynching jews or christians in religious areas. No one takes into account of what anyone else is pulling. Doesnt surprise me.

I just got Emmissaries and I noticed this album has alot of popularity so far. What do you guys think of this album? I love it, maybe the best IMO of 2006.

I am really glad to say that Melehchesh will be joining Enslaved, Keep Of Kalessin and Marduk (who I think are headlining, sadly. Outrage!) on an European tour in May. I'm so excited

Couldt agree with you more, one of the best albums in 2006. I love Emissaries. Its their best effort so far in my opinion. I love the way there are really heavy tracks and more laid back and beautiful songs like The Scribes Of Kur which reminded me of Nile without being a total rip off. Fantastic band.

Its different, so I would suggest hearing some samples before buying the albums prior. However 'Sphynx' is probably the closest to the sound of 'Emissaries' but keep in mind that the band started experimenting with ambient elements in their earlier work except for 'Al Intisar...' which has more of a traditional black metal sound with mideastern styled riffs and feeling.

Ok... As far as I know, Nile's strictly Egyptian sound isn't that conspicuous in their music (I don't regard what they play as music though, hate me, I don't care), whereas Melechesh employ more authentically Middle Eastern sounds. I can't see how one would be ripping off the other when one tries to make the influence obvious and the other doesn't, even with the distinct differences, too.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a band that has a similar sound and style (i.e. black, thrashy, catchy and chanty) to Melechesh?

Try Absu,if you haven't already. If you like Melechesh, you'll probably also like Absu.

This band is great, they push themselves away from the generic bm scene and are capable of playing something different, that is of course of their middle eastern sound influence. Nevertheless, I think i'll be listening to these guys fairly often in the future, i have their album Emissaries and it's truly a great piece of work.

I don't own any albums from them which is shitty of me, but I can't buy EVERYTHING! I listened to them some time ago though on myspace and its pretty good music! At least I'd like to own something...

Perhaps I will check this "Emissaries" out. I think I will see them with Enslaved though, I'm not sure, I'll have to look it up!
