Melechesh Sign With Nuclear Blast

Nuclear Blast Records reports:

"Nuclear Blast is proud to announce the signing of Sumerian thrashing black metallers MELECHESH.

After founding the band in Jerusalem back in 1993 the band managed to become the first metal outfit out of the Middle East to draw mass attention from all over the world.

Since releasing their breakthrough album Sphynx in 2003 every headbanger out there has heard of this oriental blackish, thrashy force called Melechesh (which by the way is Hebrew/Aramaic for "king of fire“). After their even more successful 2006 effort Emissaries, it was time to move on businesswise – enter 2008 this unique and promosing band finally found its new home under the flag of Nuclear Blast. Welcome, brothers!"

Here is what founder, guitarist/vocalist and mainman Ashmedi has to say about this great news: “We are pleased to be cooperating with and being part of the Nuclear Blast dynasty. This was the logical step for us and Nuclear Blast has the platform from which we can keep on expanding and capturing the souls of many. With strong foundations towers can soar ever higher to reach newer cosmic plains.

I am working on new material at the moment, the writing process will still take some time, the process will be paused for the European Tour in March/April hence, talk of a new album will not yet be divulged but we will keep you updated!”
