Melechesh's "The Siege Of Lachish" To Be Reissued As Vinyl Picture EP

MELECHESH's "The Siege Of Lachish" will be re-released by Tarot Productions, formatted as a collector’s edition vinyl picture EP limited to only 300 copies worldwide. The title track was inspired by a text written by the Assyrian King Sennacherib as he witnessed his army invade the city of Lachish, which was approximately an hour and a half from Jerusalem. The site is nothing but ruins now, but with the text, it inspired this warlike song and is the principal track of this EP. The side B track, "Malek Al Nar" (meaning king of fire in Arabic) is a fast and traditional black metal hymn.
