NILE’s latest state-of-the-death-metal-art release Those Whom the Gods Detest, was produced and mixed by Neil Kernon (NEVERMORE, CANNIBAL CORPSE, QUEENSRYCHE). Along with a stellar drum recording job by Erik Rutan (CANNIBAL CORPSE, VITAL REMAINS, GOATWHORE), Those Whom the Gods Detest features the bands strongest production and perhaps their best material to date!
