NILE (USA/Nc) “Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka” Cd 1998 Relapse

NILE (USA/Nc)

Ancient. Immortal. Once every 10 years or so comes a band that change the face of a music style, a band so damn unique and dazzling to flatter everybody forever. First it was SLAYER, then MORBID ANGEL and SUFFOCATION, bands that have such a strong coherence and identity that create something unique that last forever. That’s the reality behind NILE. In a time where everyone is looking for experimentation to soften music styles that absolutely have nothing to do with tenderness such as Black Metal and Death Metal, NILE showed the whole world how they could recreate atmospheres through concept albums weaved with an incredible taste, astonishing musicianship and without losing a single ounce of substance. NILE is a legend already to me, every time I hear their album I am completely overwhelmed by the complexity and the in depth study of Egyptian mythoi. The packaging is perfect, the lyrics totally glue you to your seat as you swallow em while listening to the disc. The production is flawless.. Well enough for now, I hope you’ll get the point. Oriental atmospheres reign in a release of absolutely unstained Death Metal to the core music.
