NEHMF 2005 Live Report

It’s that time of year again- birds are chirping, trees are blossoming, the city’s Crowne Plaza Hotel is bombarded with numerous metal parties. And, of course, the local businesses in Worcester, MA hand out flyers that read “Dear metalheads (!!!), if you’re wondering where to get drunk tonight, come to our pub”.

It’s the New England Metal Fest weekend, which was held on April 22-24 and welcomed fans from all corners of the US, Canada, Puerto Rico and even UK. Probably the biggest and best festival on this side of the Atlantic. At least this year’s. I was giddy with excitement about this event since January and I lived to share my observations and opinions. More...

Nile Studio Update

Nile is hard at work on their much anticipated new album, Annihilation of the Wicked, due for a late Spring, 2005 release date via Relapse.

On the topic of the recording of the forthcoming album, Sanders states: "We finished the guitar, bass vocal and additional instrument tracking at the soundlab in Columbia, SC with Neil Kernon and Bob Moore . It was an utterly grueling session, with every single day of those 2 1/2 weeks being a 14-16 hour working frenzy. The next phase will be to start mixing at Rax Trax in Chicago. We have 10 days scheduled there with Neil Kernon mixing/ producing.

Based on what we have heard from the recordings so far, this is easily our strongest work yet. There are 10 songs as well as 2 reasonably short intro/instrumentals, with total album time weighing in at a pre-mix length of 65 minutes. We are seriously intense about these new songs, and can't wait for people to hear them. Be prepared to be crushed"

NILE will kick off a European headlining tour on March 8th in London, England. Support on the Terrorizer Magazine sponsored tour will be provided by labelmates DYING FETUS and NECROPHAGIST.

Nile's current touring schedul is as follows:
