Melechesh
Sphynx [Enhanced CD] (Osmose Productions)

By: Jeb Branin

This is the third opus from black thrash kingpins MELECHESH and there are likely to be a few broken necks with how fast this CD is going to turn heads in the extreme metal underground. MELECHESH tear through 11 absolutely raging thrashers, played like the hounds of Hades themselves were nipping at the band's heals as they recorded. A dark atmosphere permeates the entire project, thus ensuring its appeal to the black metal minions, but what is going to secure this album's place atop many top-ten-of-the-year lists, is the go-for-broke ferocity of the tunes. With the obvious resurgence of thrash in the underground MELECHESH may have made the perfect album at the perfect time.

The navigation of the enhanced parts of this CD is pretty sweet with some unreal graphics but anyone who buys this for anything other than the music is nuts.
