Peter X Don : Ah, good ol' Hurrian Hymn no.6. I still remember when this melody first came out, and let me tell you, it was played all over Egypt! Places like Thebes, Kerma, Memphis, you name it. Unfortunately, the band's lead lyrist (not the one in this cover version) was involved in a violent high-speed camel chase/crash, and would end up dying due to papyrus overdose a few days later. As you can imagine, the band eventually dissolved because of this tragic event. Though the band might be gone, their legacy shall live forever.
