The Quietus - A new rock music and pop culture website


WATCH New Melechesh Video Here

Melechesh are by far and away the most favoured Sumerian or Babylonian metal band at The Quietus towers so it's a pleasure to post their new video here.

The clip for 'Grand Gathas Of Baal Sin' is, if we're not mistaken, partially filmed in the wonderful Basilica Cistern of Istanbul, which is the third wonder of the city, coming after the Sancta Sophia and the Harem of the Topkapi Palace.

If you're looking for some Middle Eastern influenced extreme metal then you could do much worse than pick up their recent album The Epigenesis or their masterful 2007 album, Emissaries.
