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.
