The original post

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.

Saw them live during Shadows of the Emissaries-tour, killer show. (Immolation crushed too, now their set was energetic!) Shame that most of the audience didn't seem too familiar with the band (all my friends hit the bar during their set, fuckers).

I got my Emissaries-digi signed by Ashmedi, nice guy (he was at the front row during Immolation's set, too).

The thread seems dead but: has anyone tried ordering anything from them? I tried for the first time about 3 months ago, and second time recently, still no response.

Emissaries is one of my favorite metal album, try it! Rebirth of the Nemesis is a song that instantly grows on you, the arabic rythms make wanna dance and mosh at the same time, it's weird... Other great tracks on this album are Ladders to Sumeria and The Scribes of Kur, an all-folk song with arabic and indian influences. Leper Jerusalem is a great song, too, it's more dowright BM if you ask me.

Leper Jerusalem is a great song, too, it's more dowright BM if you ask me.


I think Rebirth of the Nemesis is the only memorable track on that album, and it is by far one of the best Melechesh songs. Leper Jerusalem is kind of catchy and I usually listen to that one too, but it in my opinion is by far the least black metal song on the album, it sounds more of a rock song. Rebirth is the most black metal I think and I wish the entire album had that intensity.

Djinn has several good tracks and As Jerusalem Burns is brilliant in it's entirety.


I won't argue about Leper Jerusalem being BM, since I'm no BM expert; that song just reminds me of Immortal or something like that, that's why I said that. And I wonder why debuts and second albums are almost always considered the best works from about every single band... I guess that's because the inspiration is hard to keep for a long time or because musicians lose some of their passion after giving so much in early albums. Personally, I don't usually prefer early albums: I just prefer the one that appeals to me the most, which can be a debut, a middle-period or a last album. Also, I just wanna pinpoint I wasn't comparing Emissaries with anything, I just consider it as a very good metal album, but I think you got that already I'll try earlier Melechesh albums when I'll have the money for it, though I already bought some songs from Sphynx and Djinn and the only tracks that I really like from them is "Genies, Sorcerers and Mesopotamian Nights."

I think it's quite good, although too long. 71 minutes is too much, especially that the songs aren't too varied.

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?

I don't know but for me Melechesh reminds me of Legion of the Damned (thrashy, blacky, deathy

Also i would ask about the change of the drummer (Russley Randell "Proscriptor McGovern" Givens replaced by "Xul") Procriptor is unique and special drummer, now in his band Absu where he is the singer and drummer.

They probably won't know
Two of the band members are Dutch and the other haven't lived in the Middle East there for quite some time, they also live in The Netherlands

There was Al Jazzera report it son MS somewher elink about it it was good and when band left it was 1992 something to Ned so time has changed a lot of and new generation slowly take over old belifes its like Europe in 60's when some skins n punks, teddy boys, bikers start protest to old beliefs , only think what in Isreal slows it down is mandatory militrary duty

Well,Melechesh are definitely very interesting with their origin and influence on ppl.For me they hold a big one.

Saw them live and I quite liked them!It is a certain reason to fall in love if you like the Middle East and its influence.
