MELECHESH - »Enki« cover art revealed!
Pioneers of Sumerian thrashing black metal, MELECHESH, have revealed the cover art for the band's upcoming studio album, »Enki«. Find the cover below. Commented mainman, singer and guitarist Ashmedi: "For the artwork we collaborated again with John Coulthart, who has done our previous two album covers. The art reflects the dynamics of the album and the world of MELECHESH: order and chaos. It amalgamates several spiritual, cultural and mythological concepts from the Near/Middle East and our lyrical aspects. Again it was based in the golden ratio which for the purpose of this album seemed suitable. The pillars featured here are a continuation from the previous album and lead to a path of knowledge. John always manages to capture the essence of MELECHESH." Furthermore, due to unforeseen productional issues, the release of »Enki« had to be pushed to February 27 (EU), March 2 (UK) and March 10 (US). The follow-up to 2010's masterpiece »The Epigenesis« marks the band's sixth full-length album and will feature iconic guests Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, KILLER BE KILLED), Sakis Tolis (ROTTING CHRIST) and Rob Caggiano (VOLBEAT, ex-ANTHRAX). The album was recorded in Greece by Giorgos Bokos (ROTTING CHRIST) while Jonas Kjellgren (IMMORTAL, LEGION OF THE DAMNED, OVERKILL, HYPOCRISY) took care of the mix and mastering in his renowned Black Lounge Studios in Sweden. »Enki« can be pre-ordered in various formats (Digipack, various vinyl colors), including a special t-shirt bundle, via this link: http://smarturl.it/MELECHESH-Enki-NB »Enki« tracklist: 01.
