Melechesh To Enter The Studio In April and Begins Writing New Album

Mesopotamian metal band Melechesh will enter the studio on April 10th to record their 5th album for a period of 4-5 weeks. 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 currently untitled album is set to be released in the summer of 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Mainman Melechesh Ashmedi comments, "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.
