Why weren't these songs released on 'In The Beginning'; itself a collection of two pre Nephren-Ka EPs?

Yeah it's tough to say what the quality will be like Brother B, but early Nile is pretty awesome - a lot of the time I prefer their brutish battering to the technical stuff.

Finally! The demo sees a re-release! This stuff is great!

And Brother B: The reason it wasn't released on In The Beginning is because it's so different, Karl didn't want to release it. This is Nile before growling!
