Masters of Sumerian blackened thrash metal, MELECHESH, have announced to release an exclusive digital EP entitled Mystics Of The Pillar II. The EP will contain the following tracks and will be released April 27 in Europe and on May 1 in the US.
Mystics Of The Pillar II track listing:
01. Mystics Of The Pillar (Alternate Ending)
02. Sacred Geometry (Instrumental)
03. The Epigenesis (Instrumental)
Commented mainman and vocalist/guitarist Ashmedi: “We recorded two different ending version of ‘Mystics of the Pillar’ – this one changes tempo and picks up steam. Why? Because we felt like it, a song with two different endings is not too common in this day and age. Last minute we chose one to be included on the album, thus the second version was not mixed and mastered till a much later date. We also decided to release a couple of instrumental versions to our songs, namely ‘The Epigenesis’ title track which is a 12-13 minute epic and Sacred Geometry both are multi faceted and work perfect just as instrumental works. We actually have an instrumental version of the entire album mixed and mastered so enjoy these couple of tracks.“
Check out the video clip for the song “Grand Gathas Of Baal Sin” from their most recent masterpiece The Epigenesis. The clip was shot at the cisterns in Istanbul, Turkey in late 2010 by Canadian director Rouzbeh Heydari and produced by Tumay Irgas. Check out the clip at: www.youtube.com/
The Epigenesis was recorded in the newly built first class Babajim Studios in Istanbul, Turkey. The album was mixed by Reuben de Lautour and mastered by Pieter Snapper. In an unprecedented move in metal, the band chose to record the album entirely in Istanbul in an attempt to capture the inspiring surroundings. Babajim Studios is run by some of the most elite sound engineers in Turkey.
