Melechesh -- Springfield, VA -- March 9th, 2011
 
[B]HATE DID NOT PERFORM[/B], no idea why, I'm guessing passport bullshit (wouldn't be the first time a band has been fucked over), though I heard gossip of a seizure or something.

Illumination: The Face of Shamash
Sacred Geometry
Deluge of Delusional Dreams
Ladders to Sumeria
Grand Gathas of Baal Sin
Triangular Tattvic Fire
Ghouls of Nineveh
Rebirth of the Nemesis

Badass set in support of Rotting Christ. Lecherous Nocturne played some new stuff, and I still have no idea what Abigail Williams played. Read any of my other posts with them for a review of their performance

Anyway, Melechesh's first ever tour of the USA, and I believe their second ever show this side of the Atlantic. This was one of the times where at first only a few people were in to the performance, but by the end, the band had converted most of the building into fans. Ashmedi and company played very tightly, and had a great sound (though the snare was a bit too loud in my opinion).

To put it simply, it was just an engaging and powerful performance, and the particular highlights for me were Sacred Geometry, Baal Sin, and Tattvic Fire, which transcended the performance to become epic, grim manifestos of Sumeria.

I would advise all to attend a performance by this band, not only because they kicked ass at an impressive level, but also to make it financially viable for them to tour the USA again.

Also, Moloch's guitar had the most badass set-up, it was a black Gibson V, but the pickguard and truss-rod plate had been replaced with a copper-colored arabian-looking pieces.

Thanks for the review. I was just saying in another thread that I used to be all head over heels over Melechesh, but suddenly I don't like them anymore. Still, I plan to go to the Rotting Christ show, so maybe seeing them live will rekindle my interest in them.

Seems like a good set, though. I think the songs I used to really like are in there.
EDIT: When I used to like them, my favorite song of theirs was "The Magickan and the Drones." :(

Going to this tour tomorrow in Trenton, NJ...I hope Hate makes it!!!

Really wish this tour was coming here. Melechesh FTW. Other bands would be fun to see live as well, I'm sure.

Great set Melechesh is the only reason I am going to this tour.:rocker:
Do you happen to know how much was merch???

BrutalN00dle 03-09-2011 08:38 PM

All of Melechesh's shirts were $20, the merch girl said she didn't have the CDs yet and I didn't see any accessories like patches or anything.

Bloodcurse 03-09-2011 09:03 PM

Any idea if they had 3XL shirts?

coltongsmith 03-09-2011 09:34 PM

Saw these dudes at MDF last year and OMG! they were amazing. Can't wait to see them next month and hopefully Hate gets back on this tour. I don't want another Belphegor incident where i get fucked out of seeing them.

Where's the Rotting Christ set list -_-??

BrutalN00dle 03-10-2011 11:49 AM

I left before they played, not because I didn't want to see them, but because I didn't think I'd be able to stay awake for the drive home.
