2010 release from Melechesh. Against all trends the band went eastwards rather than going for any skandinavian or US studio. “The Epigenesis” was recorded in Istanbuls newly built first class Babajim Studio. Amongst other surprises, the album incorporates more organic elements, subtly integrating traditional instruments (such as yayli tanbur, Azeri Tar, baglama saz, Indian sitar and Persian santur), 12string guitars and leaving room for jam-like improvisations that channel the inspiring aura of Istanbul, a city that has always been a melting point for cultures, for east an west… This is sonic magick!
