Taking into account the central role the concept of death played in ancient Egyptian society, it’s somewhat surprising there haven’t been more death metal bands who have made it their central lyrical theme. Nile, the American combo around mastermind Karl Sanders, are an exception to the rule. What can we say about Nile that extreme death metal fans haven’t heard a thousand times before? We could point out that they single-handedly gave the death metal scene a new twist by seamlessly integrating oriental elements in their ferocious death metal mix. Or we could remind everyone that Nile’s songs betray a level of musicianship that would put many a prog band to shame. Or we could state the obvious and say that their live shows are flawless and of unequalled intensity. If this is news to you then hopefully we’ve aroused your curiosity .See you on the front rows!
