More opinions on »Enki«:
"The perfect balance between heavy catchy riffing and black metal genre powered by traditional Middle Eastern influences"
METALLIAN (FR) | Yves Campion

„When watching the TV news, people might think Syria only brought forth misery. Fortunately there’s MELECHESH, who remind us of the glorious Mesopotamian culture and how important this was to each and every one of us! Black metal fertilized with exotic oriental tones and bedazzling rhythms as only MELECHESH can make, that’s ‘Enki’ in a nutshell.“

„On „Enki“ MELECHESH sound even blacker as well as more exotic than before and deliver a killer album!“
DEAF FOREVER (GER) | Götz Kühnemund

„Already THE album of 2015! The kings of oriental metal cement their status!“
LEGACY (GER) | Manuel Stein

„Mesopotamian magick: ‚Enki‘ cements a vision into a statement!“
ROCK HARD (GER) | Wolfgang Kuhn

„Hysterical snitty blackened thrash, which once again bites brutally precise. Unique as ever.“

„""Enki" is a mesopotamian metal storm by experimental band MELECEHSH. Spiritual, magical, atmospheric and destructive - like a myth from the Arabian nights!"
METAL.DE (GER) | 9/10 | Markus Endres

„"Enki" is so full of magic and myth!"
EMP (GER) | Adam Weishaupt
