The song Illumination: The Face of Shamash from Melechesh their new album: ''The Epigenesis''

Melechesh is a black metal band that originated in Jerusalem. Ashmedi started the band as a solo project in 1993. In the following year, guitarist Moloch and drummer Lord Curse were added to the line-up. The band's goal was to create a type of black metal incorporating extensive Middle Eastern influences mainly based on Mesopotamian/Sumerian and occult themes (both musically and lyrically); the band invented the title "Mesopotamian metal" to best describe their type of metal. The band started their career in Jerusalem (and Bethlehem) and operated from there between 1993--1998; however, they have resided mainly in Amsterdam since 1998 for several personal, professional and demographic reasons.


Wings from letters
Carry me beyond the white
Here I am standing
Burning winds fill my lungs
My eyes are open
My palm is read

Prophets propel me, propel me to the zone
They enter my mind, LIGHT!
These are Sumer's chosen ones
Angst from enlightenment

Face of the Sun will guide me
Shamash, carry me beyond the white
This is the will of fate
Dead trees are you

Position the fingers forward (whispers)
