Black Seeds of Vengeance

Nile rumbles — “The scourge of Amalek is upon you” – hardly a hyperbole. These South Carolinians construct some of the most sinister patterns known to man. 180 beats per minute blast beats, brutal growls and Middle Eastern influences — all weaved into an intricately vicious arrangement. Drawing from their illustrious Florida death contemporaries, Nile crafts a truly ravishing Egyptian dissonance — a sonic intensity unparalled in metal. Here, the assault patterns are uniquely recognizable and atmospheric, a rarity within this lineage.

Egyptian chants and not so poetic gruesome mythology – “Horus hammereth them. Nepthys hacketh them to bits. The eye of Ra eateth into their faces. Their carcasses will be consumed in the desert”. Guttural growls, sharp temporal variations, and ruthless bass lines – all peacefully coexisting with electrifying guitar melodies. With these rich layered signatures, Karl Sanders effortlessly heaves the listener into an enchanting extreme terrain.
