Moloch & Aladdin

Hard to write an introduction for such a rewarding interview! As their latest successful album The Epigenesis is released, we were able to have chat with Moloch from Melechesh on the phone. The man who has a PhD in political philosophy and is also the guitarist of the band for the rest of the time discussed the album in detail. He described from the philosophical and spiritual interpretations of the album and song The Epigenesis up to the artwork and writing process. The album was recorded in Turkey, which unknown to most of us is a country that has important ties with the metal world. His portrayal is both interesting and full of praise.

Since Melechesh are the pioneers of the combination of metal with oriental sounds, we were curious to find out what Moloch thought of the sudden increase in recent bands using the same format. We both agreed that this increase often resulted in some hideous clichés or “Aladdin style music” as commented by the guitarist.

The interview ends on the subject of his double life as a musician and a thesis writer… Which could be interesting to all those who still wonder how to successfully juggle the two!
