This is cool.

“Masters of Sumerian black/thrash metal” Melechesh will be joined by session bass player Scorpios of the American black metal band Crimson Moon.

Scorpios has been residing in Germany for several years and will be arriving in Amsterdam on Tuesday for intensive rehearsal sessions, a press release says.

His first show will be April 20 at Dubai’s Holy Noise metal event.

This will be Melechesh’s second performance in Dubai, having first played there in 2009 at the Sand Storm festival.

Melechesh will release a digital EP called Mystics Of The Pillar II on April 27 in Europe and May 1 in the U.S. through Nuclear Blast Records.

I know at least a few of you are psyched about this. Tell us all how much so over on Facebook.
