Nile Issues New Album Recording Update

Karl Sanders of Nile has checked in with the following announcement about working on the follow-up to the "Those Whom the Gods Detest" album:

"We are finished tracking drums for the new Nile album - George, Dallas, Neil Kernon, and I spent a week with Bob Moore at the Soundlab in Columbia SC, tracking drums.

"We were expecting a long grueling session - some of this material is very compositionally challenging and technically demanding, but George knocked it out, finishing a FULL WEEK ahead of schedule. OMG.

"Some of the drumming on this record will be boggling people's minds for years to come. At the moment we are back in Greenville, and will commence tracking guitars any day now. Fuck yeah!"

This album is going to be an interesting one for Nile.

In my eyes they smashed the ball out of the park with "Annihilation of the Wicked" and the two follow ups were essentially iterations of the same style and production. So what next? Are they going to pump out another "Nile" album and tour it like they know they can to make a living, or introduce a new sound or direction?

I am excited, Kollias has more than likely been practicing quite a bit with all the clinics he has been putting on as of late. Karl also has his solo work as well which could help them enhance the 'Lebonese/Egyptian' thing they have going on.

To be honest though, Behemoth stole my heart away with 'The Apostasy'. I know people would argue they aren't the same 'genre' but to me it's all just 'intense, extreme metal with some very POWERFUL moments'.

So with that being said, I hope Nile spices things up and tries some new things BUT doesn't stray too far away from the sludgy growling guitars and crisp blast beats that have characterized them thus far.
