||Sumerian black metallers Melechesh have just returned from the Lux Mundi Europe Tour as special guests of label mates Samael. Mastermind, vocalist and guitarist Ashmedi offers the following positive summary: "So far we have completed our fourth tour, plus a festival run in support of The Epigenesis album. Yet we still have some more gigs to announce."
"Lux Mundi tour was a great experience, for one thing the weather was great so that things like the flu, ice and floods were kept at bay, but more importantly touring with talented bands like Keep Of Kalessin and Samael was a pleasure, both on a professional and personal level as well. Massive Music did a very good job as always - a professional crew which is more like family than anything else. The opening acts Minkus, Dark End, Fluxious, Dead Shape Figure, Noctem, Six Reasons To Kill and Inferi all had something different to offer, which added spice and diversity to each night of the tour, plus the guys and gals in those bands were just superb to have around. Now it is time to sit and compose!"
Furthermore, French comic artist Fabrice Gagos has included a tribute to both Melechesh members Ashmedi and Moloch to his weekly updated web comic by dedicating one of the main characters - Sayid - to the two. You can see the cover here and read the comic "Ghouls Of Nineveh" in English here.
