Nile Post Online Guitar Lesson

MetalKult.com has posted a 17-part video guitar lesson with technical death metal band NILE.

The footage was shot on August 21, 2007, when the South Carolina band came to New York City to play a one-off date from this summer's Ozzfest, in support of their new album "Ithyphallic" (Nuclear Blast).

In the interview, guitarists Karl Sanders and Dallas Toler-Wade demonstrate the key elements of their style, and show how to play NILE classics like "Barra Edinazzu", "Howling of the Jinn", "Black Seeds of Vengeance" and more.

Go to MetalKult.com now to check out these videos.

NILE shot a video for the song "Papyrus Containing The Spell To Preserve Its Possessor From Attacks From He Who Is In The Water" on November 18. The clip, which is rumored to feature live Nile crocodiles (Crocodylus niloticus), was directed by Juan "Punchy" Gonzalez (producer for such acts as MORBID ANGEL and TERRORIZER).

Cynic, these videos aren't worth a dime. The clips are about 40 seconds a piece and they play the riff to three of their songs, one time slow and the other time fast. They also play two of the ugliest guitarists in existence while they're at it. Nile are great musicians (and I have utmost respect for that) but these guys are just as boring as the music they play these days.
