Nile Mainman: "We're Too Heavy For Ozzfest"

Nile frontman Karl Sanders has commented on Nile's involvement on this summers Ozzfest along with Ozzy Osbourne, Lamb of God, Lordi, Hatebreed and others.

Karl Sanders stated "Been getting a lot of messages about Ozzfest, and the general concensus is, we are either giving a good reason for metalheads to go to the show, or we're going someplace we don't belong because we're 'too heavy for Ozzfest.'

"Well, here's how I see it: There is a brief scene in 'Saving Private Ryan', during the opening sequence on the Normandy Beach, where just for a few seconds the camera moves to a viewpoint of a German machine-gunner — looking over his machine-gun sights down onto the beach — who is laying waste to countless U.S. soldiers as the doors open up to their boats and they are all just helpless and vulnerable, in the water and struggling onto the beach, exposed to devastating machine gunfire — and from this vantage point, one can not help but get the feeling, if only for a moment, of what it must feel like to be that machine gunner, with so many helpless targets right in your sights to mow down at will. Of course, for that machine-gunner, you also feel that, however awesome it must be for those priceless few moments of godly slaughter, it will inevitably be short-lived, because he is soon to be roasted alive in his bunker as soon as Tom Hanks and friends make it up the hill. But for those few moments of unimpeded opportunity to mow down wave after wave of helpless targets, it had to be utterly godly.

"That's why we are doing Ozzfest. We will be the first real death metal band to ever play Ozzfest, and the chance to lay waste to thousands and thousands of mall metal posers is just too once-in-a-lifetime to pass up.

"In the words of Ross Dolan, 'Metal will take place.'

"I could care less about how much incredible exposure it will be to play Ozzfest; I am just thrilled at the possibility of metal carnage on a mass scale. Those venues will look like Omaha Beach when we are done."

I like that description a lot. I am not a huge Nile fan, but look forward to seeing them play. Their presence along gives the lineup a good bit more credibility.

Karl Sanders>;Ozzy

This is too true, Ozzfest is a corporate mall metal haven. Its nice to have some true metal seeping into this thing, no offense to Lamb though.

I can respect that, but at the same time I dont see ANY of that happening. I dont see how you can have a venue that looks like Omaha Beach when Nile is done. It is going to be filled with those "mall metal" kids he mentioned, and being as how they don't have a good sense and devotion to good metal, they wont get what Nile is about, or how well respected they are. If anything Nile will become just another band for the "mall metal" kids to drool over souly based on the fact that they played Ozzfest. Their shirts will start showing up in Hot Topic, and all the kids they despise will be taking part in the whole mess. It's not really something bad, I'm just convinced that it will never be a slaughter on the audience. The large demographic of kids that see Ozzfest are there for the fashion, the culture, the bragging rights, and maybe to see one band they like. I can guarantee you they will not have the capacity to be completely blown away by Nile's talent and unique sound.

Karl speaks the truth. I have to disagree with you though AE, with bands like LoG and hatebreed playing, there will be a ton of mallcore kids there who don't listen to the heavier metal bands. So i doubt they'll enjoy a band as heavy as Nile. Although if i do go, i'll definately be there supporting them and what real metal is.

I'd say hes pretty conceded, but after looking at the ozzfest alumni I'm actually suprised that hes right there really aren't any bands that have ever played that are real death metal. not to seem like some poser I f***ing love lamb of god ever since seeing them on ozzfest '04 I've been a big fan. hate breed definately is mainstream.

they need to get cannibal corpse, behemoth, and amon amarth. perfect way to seal up the second stage.

What a dumbass.

So I guess that Nile won't have a merch booth at Ozzfest to make sure that the "thousands and thousands of mall metal posers" won't buy your sh** and make your band a mall metal band (as well as make you wealthier). I wonder if he's ran that idea by Sharon; I wonder if she likes that idea.

Not to mention the fact that since Nile is on the second stage, they undoubtedly have to pay a fee to even be at Ozzfest. And it's not small, from what I read. Paying money just to lay waste to mall posers. Yeah, I believe that bullsh**.

This guy wants publicity. That's why he made that World War Two comparison. And it makes no sense, because when I read the Ozzfest lineup so far this year, Nile is the only band that even jumps out at me as being exciting.

Remember the 2007 Ozzfest jingle: "FREE MY ASS!"

I wasnt saying that these "mall metal" kids will be listening to Nile because they like them. They will just use it as bragging rights to beef up their so called "knlowledge" of metal. For example, if they ever run into metal head who knows his sh**, they will say "oh i love Nile" and the mall metal kid will respond with "oh yeah me too, i saw em live" "oh really whats your favorite song?" "oh...ummm....the one about egypt and stuff"

haha...ive run into so many kids like that who see a band in Hot Topic and immediatly act like they are the god of metal. It's quite annoying actually.

I want to know what alternate reality some of you people are living in talking about "mainstream bands like Lamb of God" and slagging them as mallcore or not heavy. Just because they got some big label backing and sold some records doesn't mean anything - all of their albums are heavy as hell. Even if you don't like their "corporate" releases, they play a ton of their old material live anyway. Sounds to me like people are trying so hard to be so un-trendy that they'll talk trash about anyone well known.

That's cool if you think they are heavy as hell but to me, they aren't that heavy. After listening to bands like beneath the massacre, necrophagist, behemoth, spawn of possession, and Psycroptic, you start to realize bands like lamb of god which used to seem heavy aren't as heavy as you used to think. Pretty ignorant if you think that if someone doesn't like a well known band like lamb of god, then they don't like any well known bands just because they are mainstream. I do infact listen to some more well known bands such as Betweem the Buried and Me God Forbid.

OK,One time only will I put my 2 cents into this ongoing war about what is "metal" and what is not.This is my opinion and I am sure it will be blasted all to hell.There are so many different ways to argue for or against what is "metal".I think the all ending answer is.. who cares! I know everyone is passionate about the genre of metal they love and that is awesome,but why worry about what some kids that shop at the mall are doing? At least it is some type of guitar driven heavy music they are listening to.Would you really want everyone to be into the bands that you are into?Because if you would,then that would make those bands mainstream and "uncool" by many of your opinions.That also would be like you saying that if for sake of this rant that your favorite band happens to be someone like Destroyer 666,if the kid interning at Capital Records happens to love them and convinces a executive to sign them to a record deal are you going to stop listening to them because they now have the money to get more mainstream advertising?Morbid Angel was signed to Giant Records,are you saying that they were mainstream because of a major record label deal?I really do not understand this whole attack on bands who want to make money for using their skills.That is the same thing as attacking anyone else with a job that wants to be successfull.What better life can there be than to get rich by doing something that you enjoy doing.Now for the word "mainstream".This word is so very over used in these forums.Mainstream more accurately fits an artist such as ..Elton John,You can ask people from all demographics who he is and they will know something about him,I am almost positive that if you ask any 50 something year old man whom Hatebreed is,he will have no clue.Most people who are into the heaviest forms of metal usually dont start with those bands anyway.(Notice I said most because I am sure someone will say they popped out of their mothers womb and Carcass was blasting away in the delivery room or Pops was listening to At the Gates on the drive home.)If you are so against these uncool mall kids then just be happy that they are not standing next to you when you go see the bands you like that are "more metal" or whatever.If we all listened to the same music we would all be just like each other and I sure as hell dont want to want to be like that.

Its not about bands becoming mainstream and we suddenly fear the pop culture grasping on to our precious bands. Its about the band being ruined by the mainstream. I used to be a HUGE fan of Cradle of Filth, In Flames, Dimmu Borgir, Opeth. Now look at them, the mainstream market has pushed them to write songs that will SELL rather than SOUND GOOD. Some of these bands even have other people writing their songs for them (In Flames, Cradle). Thats what I fear the most when it comes to a certain band becoming mainstream. It's not the Hot Topic kids fault, it's not the Ozzfest customers fault, it's the record labels fault. So many labels are only using their bands to make money, rather than give ultimate creative control. In a time where our music is heavily controlled by the american record industry, we hold our underground music close to us. When it is exposed, it's almost like watching your children walk out into a field of land mines. They could make it through unharmed, or they could explode into pieces.

they will be one of, if not the first, bands to play real death metal and NIle is good sh**!

however i believe the line-up for Ozzfest should involve bands like Psycroptic, Decapitated, Cattle Decapitation, Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, Prostitute Disfigurement, Amon Amarth and Behemoth.

that would be worth me flying over to america to watch.

For all of the people who say Nile and all other death metal sucks and it all sounds the same, you have obviously never listened to any. If you actually listened to bands like Nile, Bolt Thrower, Malevolent Creation, Morbid Angel, Hate Eternal, Decapitated, Belphegor, Death, Exhumed along with many others and you will find that they sound very different. Nile has a very unique sound that combines extreme death metal with ancient egyptian melodies and lyrics and there is no other band out there with that same sound. The stuff that all sounds the same is that soft, melodic, and generic mainstream metal/metalcore like Killswitch Engage, All That Remains Lamb of God, Hatebreed, Trivium, As I Lay Dying, Chimaira, Unearth etc.- they are all pretty much boybands with guitars. And the world of metal and music in general is totally dominated my the soft and mainstream bands like these which sucks. and death metal is as heavy, intense, and extreme, as music can get and that mainstream stuff is just nice, pretty, freindly, watered down metal for 10 year old girls that is about as heavy as Brittney Spears and all you death metal haters are a bunch of p***ies so shut the f*** up and listen to pretty mainstream crap.

Hey guys, remember in the last Ozzfest threads and alot of you were questioning the quality of bands in a Free Fest? And remember I said "Hey, if A7X was playing when you paid for Ozzfest, then how much worse could it be for free....Maybe GOOD ARTISTS would play for the recognition...."

Mind you, I questioned it too, but I'm glad to say now, that with Nile at Ozzfest shall prove my 2 cents in it right!

That's a great sample of bands that all sound nothing like each other. In fact, many aren't even in the same "subgenre" they are so different. Talk about some bands you've actually heard, and more than their first single. And please name me one soft or melodic Lamb of God song. Just one. How about a soft Chimaira song? Unearth?

Even though Ozzfest has always been dominated by the latest trendy style in metal, they always serve up a variety of styles overall, which for some people is just more bands to b**** about. The variety is what I enjoy about it, even if I have to sit through a hand full of metalcore bands to hear the rest.

bassmaster! you f***ing idiot! So if anything is good, it must become trendy? What about modern classical? Classical composers always have and always will be able to write at a level of complexity that hatebreed couldn't even comprehend. But nobody f***ing cares about Phillip Glass's self re-writing melodies or any modern composer exploring atonal classical compostion. I won't trash Lamb of God or any of the "NWoAHM" as it's called in this bloated metal binomial nomenclature, but hardcore and the majority of metalcore has little thought in composition that I feel fulfills the stereotype of metal being music requiring caveman intellect to compose. All the while, death metal is given the credit of that stereotype, but explores ancient world music, atonal composition, complex harmonic composition, polyrhythms and odd-time polyrhythms, freeform jazz stylings, classical stylings, and the best of which requires a skill calling for the utmost dedication, and yet somehow the fact that it has an incredibly abrasive aesthetic to the common ear (or the mallcore ear, for that matter) makes it automatically suck.

Disrespect begets disrespect and that's how so many of these threads turn into a bunch of name-calling. If you want to say "I like death metal more than any other kind of metal," then fine, but you brought the disrespect with your classification of so many NWOAHM and metalcore bands a "boybands with guitars" as well as the inaccurate classification of them all sounding alike. So why do you do what you are accusing others of doing with respect to death metal? After the hypocrisy destroys any credibility to those arguments, there's really nothing left but an ignorant death metal fan.

I am very happy to see Lamb of God on Ozzfest, I just saw them with Machine Head and Gojira (Trivium sucked) and they were incredible. And Nile is very good and I am glad to see them get recognition and a spot on Ozzfest. Maybe because they play on Ozzfest, Mallkids will open there eyes and listen to some death metal, and maybe the death metalists will also open there eyes and see that Lamb of God is still good even though it's not as heavy.

Yes post 67, it is possible for those who are intellegent enough to like a band based on their music and not how popular they are. Unlike those on here who sit in their moms basement and crap on bands that they dont like who have gained a little media attention because they have nothing better to do. For the record, i happen to like some black metal, why?, becuase it has melody and intellegence unlike 90% of death metal. Death metal is just fast guitar with a "heavy" tune, growls, and double bass drumming. True death metal, not including melodic death which i like alot, is just something im not into. The only true death metal band i like is death, the origional, because alot of others are just rip-offs with less intellegence.

Sure, there are bands that are are gonna be not so good and such and then there are always gonna be a few amazing bands. Thats how Ozzfest has always been, so why complain. I think its great that its set up like that because it brings all the mainstream teen metalheads a few amazing bands that can open their mind. Nile will be a good example of that this year.

Brace yourself for braindeath and boredom....

I really didn't want to get dragged into this one for the sheer fact that I appreciate both sides. But as happens around here, both sides are taking things too personally.

The people who loath Ozzfest and cry sellout at Nile for joining this tour do infact have a point.
Nile will be sharing the stage with bands who, for all intents and purposes generate a "more accessible" sound.

Example: Yes Lamb of God are heavy, heavier than virtually anything on radio at least.
But they are more polished than ANY of their peers. There are hooks --ALL OVER-- "Laid to Rest", "Redneck", "Now You Have Something to Die For" and many others. Good songs imho but some purists are (severely) turned off by this.

Having the kind of backing they have also comes off as un-metal to some.
LOG earned their place but some see bands like LOG in the same light one might see a spoiled, rich kid who recieved an education thru his parents and got a great job via family connections.

Someone else may have to work 10 times as hard and long to get half as far despite having more talent. s'f***ed.....s'life.

If death metal musicians were "all about the money" they would have a more welcoming sound. They need money to function and get by but I doubt they're on a quest for sprawling estates. You don't get lots of money with bathroom production quality, satanic and athiestic lyrics and bassy bellows.

Theres are sh** bands in all genres. Metalcore is over crowded, so ofcourse theres alot more crap and alot of it is samey. Death metal shares the same problem though, just on a smaller scale.

Yes someone can like Behemoth, Nile, Cynic, Unlord and Death and still get a kick out of KSE (until this last album anyway) LOG and ShadowsFall cus I do....Not such a big fan of the rest of the metalcore and NWOAHM set though.

I also happen like the idea of Nile opening some eyes and ears that otherwise would be listening to Bleeding Through, As I Lay Dying or worse.

Yeah Ozzfest (like many other metal institutions) finds one way or another to screw artists...but
this "free" thing is great for us....go see the bands you like, laugh loudly at the ones you hate get drunk and cook yourself to the point of skin cancer.

I think it's funny to hear Black Sabbath and AC/DC on classic rock radio stations! You're losing the point--Ozzfest is put on for the fans enjoyment-to see bands you like, see bands you've never heard of and maybe appreciate a band you didn't like. Can you imagine a world with no Ozzfest? It may happen some day and that would suck. If you don't like Ozzfest, don't go. If you do--Enjoy It! Keep listening to whatever floats your boat.

As another member of what is quickly becoming the "Old Guard", I can honestly say there are very few of the more mainstream bands I like. LoG and Hatebreed being two of them. Nile will be a breath of fresh air in the mostly stagnant pool of "metalcore/fake hardcore/screamo" bands that Ozzfest has largely focused on, driven by ticket sales. I will agree some bands DO get together and are driven by the "I'm gonna be a rich and famous rock star", but the good ones with longevity are in it strictly for the music. There are many, many bands out there that have record deals and still work other jobs to pay for studio time and printing, as well as just to pay their house payments and utility bills. It dosn't mean they suck(mostly quite the contrary), it means they are playing music that most people just don't get, and will always play music for music's sake.

Though Nile is sharing a stage with sellouts, I don't really think they're gonna be one of them. I think of Nile on Ozzfest is like (dare I compare it to something fictional) [the cartoon band] Dethklok making a Death Metal coffee jingle, they didn't sell out, they just made Coffee 'more metal'. Nile can't really sell out by playing Ozzfest, they could only play on Ozzfest making the fest 'MORE METAL'. (Yes, I did the lamest thing, comparing a real situation to a fictional cartoon. Also, if you don't know who Dethklok is, look at Cartoon Network's 'ADULT SWIM', and look in listings for a show titled 'Metalocalypse' or 'Dethklok: Metalocalypse'. If you don't have cable, look for the episodes on YouTube, if you don't have internet, then how the fvck are you posting on MU in the first place?).

But yeah, Nile won't sellout at Ozzfest, they'll just bring actual Metal to the light and out of the underground for the most part, making US, the metalheads/headbangers/moshers/etc., the dominant culture! \m/

FVCK YEAH! In this genre its all about survival ov the fittest, and now true Metal will take over as the dominant species! \m/ GROWL \m/

Sort of like being seen in the company of the enemy....It just doesn't look good.

I also have a feeling that Drowning Pool might get the mainstage slot. and whatever happened to black label society this year, this would be the first time they didnt go in how many years, 4?

Guys, let's not go for 666 posts. The server is under a huge load already due to high traffic and I'm looking at getting new hosting and more bandwidth. As these comment threads grow, each page load uses up more bandwidth, so let's not do that now. The site's been a bit slow already due to the volume of traffic this week.

okay, deathbringer, then maybe you could change the post numbers so that this thread starts with 500 as post 1. then they would have 31 posts to go to get 666. haha sounds like a good plan.

I bet karl sanders said that beacause he knows that Lamb Of f***ing God is the only thing that will dominate Ozzfest this year. Nile is pretty f***ing sweet though, and it's good that they've got some death metal on the second stage along side 'In This Moment".

ya know how he said in his metaphor that he is the german machine gunner that will soon be roasted by tom hanks and his krew, Lamb Of God is whatever kills that german machine gunner. LOG is what will lay waste to the thousands of mall metal posers
