Arallu

Arallu is a self-described "barbarian mesopotamian black metal" band from Israel, founded by Moti Daniel in 1997. The band does a fine job of weaving native Middle Eastern influences into their songs, both with melodies and with indigenous instruments, similar to bands such as compatriots Melechesh. Comparing two of their releases, 2005's The Demon From The Ancient World blends traditional metal with black, though a subpar production diminishes the overall effect, while 2017's Six ups the extreme levels and the production values, coming across as more of a black/death hybrid, still with the Middle Eastern influences.
