@PetitSagittaire Ashmedi is Armenian or Assyrian. Lord Curse is Armenian. Moloch is a Palestinian of a Christian background. The other main members were from Europe and the USA. Melechesh is a Pagan and not a Jewish band.
When I'm seeing these ISIS donkey fuckers right now destroying old assyrian heritage in Iraq/Iran I become the sudden urge to drop some audio systems blasting melechesh or other "infidel, western" music, to scare these sonsobitches off. It worked similar in Vietnam for the americans at least.
On another note: Enki is again a prime album. Melechesh didn't fail in their career yet. I agree that it is more "mellow" than the old albums and many bitch already about NB ruining Melechesh. I for one like the new variation and "openness" of sound for Melechesh. If you want something in the vein of Sphynx, Djinn or As Jerusalem burns, why don't you just go and listen to these ? A good artists manages to behold its core and at the same time bring in new influences. Melechesh do that in a spectacular way !
