There is a slight chill setting in around The Garage as September’s autumnal cool begins to set in around London; becoming most apparent with the quantity of Nile fans queuing outside donning customary hoodies and jackets.
Little did we all know that the warmer choice of attire would soon prove problematic as the evening served up a scorching example in death metal.

Kreator Morbid Angel Nile and Fueled By Fire : Nosturi Helsinki Finland

December 15th, 2012

222154_10151086638908111_2123091593_n.jpg

The 7th Of December 2012

Nosturi Helsinki

Finland

When the co-tour package consisting of Kreator, Morbid Angel, Nile and the young thrash guns Fueled By Fire was announced, it wasn’t any shock as the tickets were sold out. Generally, these kinds of packages definitely pull hundreds of people to shows, resulting a number of sold out gigs. The whole Nosturi club was entirely packed and full when about 600 metal freaks crawled to testify these four bands in action. The night was a real dream come true for all the fans to witness these leading names on the metal map on the same night and the whole gig was a worth every cent for sure. Sweating raging pits were rolling all night long and the Metal-Rules.com was at present for obvious reasons.

NILE Debut “Enduring the Eternal Molestation of Flame” Video!

November 21st, 2012

The reigning kings of technical historically-themed brutality, NILE, have posted the music video for “Enduring the Eternal Molestation of Flame”. The clip was produced and directed by Jon Simvonis for Magnum Production Studios Co. and Arctos Broadcast Facilities. It also features the African Heritage group and photography by Philippos Kokkalis.

“It was truly an honor to direct the new NILE video; a band with so many diehard fans and such a strong impact in the metal scene,” commented Simvonis. “The video concept, as a matter of fact, was inspired by the culture and the ritual habits of the Ancient Nubia, a region along the Nile River, which is located in northern Sudan and Southern Egypt. The research and design elements of the video led to a really interesting combination of the Ancient Egyptian myths, through the prism of the Nubian African Voodoo Burial rituals. Two worlds set so close, yet so far from each other.”

NILE will tour the United States once again this March and April with 28 shows supported by three of the best local bands in every market. NILE will play two massive sets with music spanning their prolific, twenty year career. Exclusive pre-sale tickets are available now at EnterTheVault.com.

“In order to commemorate our 20th year as a band,” states guitarist/vocalist Karl Sanders, “we want to bring NILE and all metal fans an evening of NILE music that spans our entire career and play two full sets with only a brief intermission. After years of many package tours, the necessary set time restrictions have often meant that NILE’s had to streamline our set. Fans didn’t always get to hear the songs they came to hear. Thankfully, some of those classic NILE songs we have been itching to play for years will now get a chance to be heard live. We are extremely fired up.”

“Another facet of this tour which was very important to us,” continues Sanders, “we have asked promoters to include the best three local bands from their respective areas on the bill. Supporting local bands in each city is a way for us to give something back to younger bands and the metal scene. We’ve asked promoters to keep ticket prices low, so that fans of all ages can come and join us for an evening of metal. In these difficult times of our recessionary economy, an evening of killer metal shouldn’t have to break the bank. NILE are going to do our part: biting the bullet and rolling the dice to bring metal fans in the USA an unforgettable evening with NILE for a reasonable ticket price. We are sincerely looking forward to seeing all our friends and fans at the shows in 2013!”

Raiding the Pharaoh’s Tomb To Unearth Lost NILE Recordings!

September 15th, 2011

With four critically acclaimed albums, a few EPs and several world tours under their belt, Nile has raised the bar for extreme metal bands musically, lyrically and conceptually. Their withering live performances are nothing short of legendary.

Formed in 1993 by Karl Sanders (guitar/vocals), Chief Spires (bass/vocals), and Pete Hammoura (drums), Nile wasted little time combining their interest in Egyptian history, culture and lore with the ferocity of modern death metal. Using a symphonic approach to songwriting and arrangement, Nile unleashed an uncompromising attack that fused unique, technical death metal with organic Middle Eastern tones. Their unique lyrical approach was inspired by Sanders’ interpretation of ancient Egyptian inscriptions, temple carvings, papyri, hieroglyphics and tomb paintings depicting ancient battles, rituals and religious ceremonies. Each following year brought a new recording, which marked a large step forward in their musical evolution.

Recorded in 1994, Worship The Animal set the tone for what would become one

of extreme metal’s most popular bands.

La Chant du Cygre

Worship The Animal

Nepenthe

Surrounded By Fright

Mecca

This recently unearthed treasure that features the original line-up of Karl Sanders, Chief Spires  and Pete Hammoura will be available as a collector’s edition digipack on October 11th via Goomba Music. These previously unreleased recordings pre-date Nile’s ground-breaking

debut album, Amongst The Catacombs of Nephren- Ka.

“Nile are death metal’s Iron Maiden” - Metal Hammer

“Nile are certainly not your average gore-and-guts-obsessed death metallers, and they defy the genre’s musical trappings as well.” - Guitar World
