Founded by a young guitarist named Ashmedi in the city of Jerusalem back in 1993, MELECHESH has always been a visionary band that invented a genre on its own, Melting raw black metal with Mediterranean drum patterns and guitar scales was the idea and resulted in a phenomenal sound, The first ever metal band out of Jerusalem with a record deal, This multidimensional aspect is characteristic for a band that constantly seeks to explore the many facets of the sub genre it forged within the extreme metal scene, Preferring quality to quantity, musical honesty over trend. 'The Epigenesis' was recorded in Istanbul's newly built first class Babajim Studio, Amongst other surprises, the album incorporates more organic elements, subtly integrating traditional instruments (such as yayli tanbur, Azeri Tar, baglama saz, Indian sitar and Persian santur), 12string guitars and leaving room for jam-like improvisations that channel the inspiring aura of Istanbul, a city that has always been a melting point for cultures, for east an west.
