Black/Death/Middle Eastern Folk Metal band from Israel.
Relocated from Israel to the Netherlands.
Melechesh means "King of Fire" in Hebrew.
The lyrics for "As Jerusalem Burns... Al'Intisar" are not available and will not be.
Problems between Melechesh and the strictly religious people in Jerusalem, as well as professional and personal reasons, encouraged the band to relocate with members going to The Netherlands where they could continue work without the hassle from religious authorities. Since the drummer could not move they found a replacement with Proscriptor from Absu, who has since then been replaced by Dutch drummer Xul.
Xul's name derives from the Sumerian (i.e. Mesopotamian) word for "evil", which coincidentally is also the Latin word for "light", lux, reversed.

Yli Peltojen, Vetten ja Tunturien
