SECHEM unveil debut album details

SECHEM - Disputes With My Ba

Spanish oriental metallers Sechem from Madrid are extremely happy to announce some details related to their upcoming debut full-length album “Disputes With My Ba“, which will be available worldwide in digital platforms and in music stores across Europe on December 21, 2018, thanks to ATCYS Records and FC Metal. Produced by Yossi Sassi (ex-Orphaned Land), mixed by Arie Aranovich (Angra, Orphaned Land), and mastered by Jonathan Jiacobi (Jaffa Sound Arts) in Israel, “Disputes With My Ba” exemplifies the band’s complex evolution since 2010, resulting in a modern metal album, but with an ethnic and eclectic twist, with melodies from different parts of the world. Sechem have unveiled the front cover art by Starfountain Design, the album tracklist and the first single “An Epic Journey to Yam” off the upcoming album, that you can listen to below.      

Sechem’s debut is focused on a unique and intimate interpretation of some ancient Egyptian texts. “We are very proud of our little bird, our first record”, says Marta Sacri (recorders). “As ancient Egyptians loved games and making art with words and images, we tried to imitate these type of writing that has multiple meanings, so this album is a double voyage: in the surface, it’s the listener’s trip to ten songs that try to mesmerize them with the words of the scribes, accompanied with ethnic sounds. The second voyage is personal and contemporary so, through our particular interpretation with heavy and powerful riffs and insane guitar solos, anyone can feel a close connection with this ancient world”.

Yossi Sassi adds: “Sechem are delivering a special sound, resulting in a melodic and powerful album, which I’m sure both metal & melodic music lovers will appreciate. I think they are showing an original approach to the oriental metal scene. The use of special traditional instruments, with influences from multiple metal genres and a strong front woman, are a great combination for success. They sound like many things yet have their own color – instantly recognizable”.
