MELECHESH have uploaded the track “Grand Gathas Of Baal Sin” to their Myspace page www.myspace.com/Melechesh. The track comes from the bands highly anticipated new album The Epigenesis.
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.
The artwork to their long awaited 5th album was handled by renowned UK based occult artist John Coulthart, whom the band has previously collaborated with before.
The Epigenesis will be released on October 1st in Europe and on October 26th in North America via Nuclear Blast Records.
