Hailing from Jerusalem, Israel (and Amsterdam currently), Melechesh have returned with their sixth LP entitled Enki which is set for a March 10th release. The band and Nuclear Blast Records have decided to go ahead and let fans check out the album in its entirety with an exclusive YouTube stream! After all, it’s been almost five years since the release of their previous record, The Epigenesis. Check it out below!
While comparisons to labelmates Nile may be a bit obvious, Melechesh certainly have carved out their own style of extreme metal while still relying heavily on influences from Middle Eastern music. There’s also a heavy dose of foot-stomping black metal, furious lead work, and guest appearances from Max Cavalera (Sepultura, Soulfly), Sakis Tolis (Rotting Christ), and Rob Caggiano (Volbeat).
