Nile

Combining the extreme speed and nihilism of modern death metal with the ancient styling of Middle Eastern music, Nile formed in their hometown of Greenville, SC, in 1993. With their self-proclaimed trademark of "Ithyphallic Metal," Karl Sanders (guitar/vocals), Chief Spires (bass/vocals), and Pete Hammoura (drums) debuted with their Festivals of Atonement album in 1995, leading Nile to a southwestern tour in support of other big metal acts such as Obituary, Deicide, and Broken Hope. Viscera Productions was responsible for Nile's follow-up EP, Ramses Bringer of War, in 1997 and was going to release their second album, Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka -- that is, if they hadn't gone out of business later that year. However, Relapse Records was more than happy to put it out in early 1998, giving Nile a wider distribution and a chance to hit the road with Incantation and Morbid Angel. The follow-up, Black Seeds of Vengeance, was released in late 2000. A collection of remastered, hard to find recordings, In the Beginning was released later the same year. By 2002, the highly anticipated In Their Darkened Shrines was dropped and the buzz around it led to mainstream coverage the band had never experienced before. Nile returned in 2005 with Annihilation of the Wicked, their first album with new drummer George Kollias and their last album on Relapse. After signing with Nuclear Blast, the band quickly followed up in 2007 with Ithyphallic before setting out across the U.S. on the Ozzfest tour, as well as touring South Africa and Europe. In 2009 Nile went back into the studio with producer Neil Kernon (of Queensrÿche), and released their sixth studio album, Those Whom the Gods Detest, late that year. ~ Mike DaRonco, Rovi

Here's a band that actually gives a damn about what they put out. Corpse paint and basement recordings are cool fa sho but it's not music any more than is a f*rt or clanking two pieces of wood together (get the Negura Bunget reference you newbies?)
Musicianship over showmanship is a hard choice because you will attract a different type of fan base. Kudos to Nile for making the right decision. I know preferences differ but think of Opeth, SYL, Nile, Origin, etc... quality over gimmicks any day!
Howling of the jin gives me goosebumps
Hell yeah this is so bad a**
Brutal, technical, Death metal. F**king perfection
Lashed to the Slave Stick!!! listening to the screams at the end of that song is haunting hell on earth. As he creates so he destroys, great Nile song also!

Yes, I love the eastern influences. And the brutality, I usually don't go for brutal music but this is nice.

This should be it's own genre and their should be more bands like this just so I can get more releases cuz this is awesome.
