They will be headlining the event, which will also feature Manchester based death metallers Foetal Juice and London extreme metallersScutum Crux plus many more…
Burning Manc Festival is a festival of fire, food and fierce music, and this will be Melechesh’s first ever Manchester show.

Melechesh were founded in Jerusalem in 1993 by young guitarist Ashmedi, and since then they have proved themselves as visionaries creating an entirely new genre. Experimenting with melting raw black metal with Mediterranean drum patterns and guitar scales resulted in their first phenomenal demo ‘As Jerusalem Burns’ and the 7” EP ‘The Siege Of Lachish’ – earning the band a forcible underground following.

Melechesh released their most recent album ‘Enki’ in early 2015, a deep and personal album filled with metaphor, spiritual, and philosophical references – a further development of their own Mesopotamian metal. 

‘This is Melechesh enthroned and triumphant and ‘Enki’s magnificence stand without question’
