sorry for lateness to update, well there were few news lately, just that Rahm joined Melechesh as a new bassist : check http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbe ... mID=131305
For the rest I'll have to read the last parts of Ashmedi's biography on Decibel Magazine, if I find some news I'll add them here ;)
