MELECHESH to shoot video in Istanbul

Melechesh (2010) Mesopotamian thrashing black metal pioneers MELECHESH are currently headed for Istanbul, Turkey to shoot the music video for the track “Grand Gathas Of Baal Sin”. The song comes from the bands brand new masterpiece The Epigenesis and will be shot by Canadian director Rouzbeh Heydari. Director of cinematography and producer are Emin Murat Kılıç and Tumay Irgas.

Commented mainman Ashmedi: “We decided to film in Istanbul in order to capitalize on the suitable and real scenery and avoid a greenscreen, the location is surreal. Choosing to film in Istanbul also keeps us in line with The Epigenesis photo shoot and recording which were both done here. Rouzbeh, the director, flew in from Canada today and the whole band will arrive tonight. Friday we will do some pre production, Saturday and Sunday we will be shooting in two different locations. We chose ‘Grand Gathas of Baal Sin’ because it has all of the desired elements; speed, thrashiness, aggression, mysticism and middle eastern ritualistic beats and parts.”

MELECHESH will be direct support to ROTTING CHRIST on their tour next March/April 2011. Joining them will be polish death metallers HATE, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS, and LECHEROUS NOCTURNE. Reduced service charge tickets are now available through
