Dead Shape Figure Checks In From The Recording Studio

Helsinki-based metallers Dead Shape Figure entered D-Studio in Nurmijärvi, Finland to record their third album. The production for the album is being handled by Xy from Swiss act Samael. The band commented:

“This is the first time ever Dead Shape Figure has used a real producer and done a proper preproduction. It is a fact you can really hear when the album is ready. We are super psyched about Mr Xy’s dedication for these new songs.

“The preproduction-stage took a week, 12 hours a day. That period with Mr. Xy was mentally really interesting yet challenging. He made us push ourselves as a band further and deeper than we would normally go. Xy made us act as a band and not as a mob.”

While recording the new album, Dead Shape Figure will also play selected festival shows during the summer. The band added, “We were not suppose to play any shows before the release of the next album but we got offered a few summer shows so we thought why not?”

Melechesh Wraps Up Tour, Appears In Comic Strip

Sumerian black/thrash metallers Melechesh have just returned from their European tour as special guests of label mates Samael. Mastermind, vocalist and guitarist Ashmedi offers the following 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. Here’s what the creator says about it:

“‘Ghouls of Nineveh’ is an ongoing web-comic featuring a pack of super-cool metal-heads fighting bloodthirsty Mesopotamian zombies for their lives after they’ve been awakened by mistake by a bunch of ultra-conservative Christians praying in their church. All of the above based upon some Mesopotamian legends, including goddess Ereshkigal and her long lost beloved, Nergal, god of plague…

“Mesopotamia, ghouls, metal-heads and mysticism – I couldn’t help but find that particular Melechesh’s title fitted perfectly. Most of all, I don’t want to spoil you the fun, but I can tell you that Sayid, guitar player and PhD in archeology owner (character-tribute to Moloch and Ashmedi), will take part in the rescuing of his friends. Metal, friendship and fun to save the world – with a bit of gore!”

Ashmedi adds: “Seeing how our music, song titles, lyrics, concepts, no matter how loosely related, inspire different artistic endeavours such as on this comic is satisfying and flattering to say the least! Plus I found it to be very entertaining and well done.”
