Melek-Tha was formed during Summer '94 by Lord Evil who wanted to
play music he really felt by using experimental material and special
samplers. After a few months, one advance album was out and spread
through mail to friends. Adipocere Records, the French Metal label,
heard this Oppressant Dark Ritual Opus I and decided to release
this CD. Astrum Argentinum is the title of
this first opus...
In the following years, Melek-Tha remained very silent and didn't
release anything at all. In fact, Lord Evil had already two other
albums ready but was looking for a new label. Indeed, being signed
to a Metal label was not the best thing... It was revealed in 1998
Spring Records, home of such acts as Archon Satani, Sutcliffe
Jugend, Merzbow and Psychic TV, was to release the next album.
In April 1999, the second opus: De Magia Natvrali
Daemoniaca, Diabolus Ritual Opus II, finally saw the
light on Cold
In 1999, Solipsism Records (US) put out Post
Nuclear Race on CD-R. Limited to 100 copies, this release unveiled
the very bleak side of Melek-Tha, quite different from the more "mainstream"
