Sphynx is a dance music act who hit #1 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in 1995 with the song "What Hope Have I". Lead vocals on this track were sung by Sabrina Johnston, a female dance singer from New Jersey. Johnston also has US dance chart entries as a solo artist.
This act is not to be confused with disco-era studio group assembled by Egyptian producer Alec R. Costandinos, also called Sphynx, or the new British alternative rock band Sphynx.
Sphynx is Melechesh's third full-length album. The album presents the band's Mesopotamian/ Sumerian metal in a more aggressive and intricate manner. The CD version includes an enhanced multimedia section featuring a trip to the world of Melechesh (lyrical overviews, wallpaper, photos, glossary of terms, and a videoclip for the track "Genies, Sorcerers and Mesopotamian Nights"). There is a guest appearance from Andy LaRocque on the track "Purifier of the Stars".
The Limited LP version contains a cover of Celtic Frost's "Babylon Fell".
