When you think of American death metal bands - if you don't immediately think Nile you're probably doing it wrong. The masters of extreme metal behind such classics as Annhilation Of The Wicked have recently announced they will return to the UK for a short trek which is part of a much larger 2015 European Tour. On the tour they will be supported by fellow extreme metal purveyors Suffocation - meaning this is one double act for UK death metal fans not to miss.
Nile and Suffocation September 2015 UK Tour
6th - Plymouth - The Hub
7th - Manchester - Sound Control
8th - London - The Dome
9th - Bristol - The Marble Factory
Tickets are obtainable from the usual sources like www.seetickets.com and cost around £20 including booking fees.
In addition to the news about the tour, the 28th of August will see Nile releasing their brand new album What Should Not Be Unearthed through one of metal's most well known record labels Nuclear Blast Records.
Nile's legendary main man Karl Sanders has had this to say about their new record What Should Not Be Unearthed:
“The goal for the new record was sheer epic brutality. The focus this time around is on brutal Heavy Metal riffing and songwriting; kind of like of an Annihilation Of The Wicked approach but very streamlined to achieve maximum destructive impact. So we believe that we have a truly crushing disc to bring to metal fans. Although Unearthed is still full of the kind of undeniable musicianship people have come to expect from us over the years, it’s the songs themselves that will hit listeners over the head this time around.”
The track list for What Should Not Be Unearthed is as follows:
01. Call To Destruction
02. Negating The Abominable Coils Of Apep
03. Liber Stellae Rubeae
04. In The Name Of Amun
05. What Should Not Be Unearthed
06. Evil To Cast Out Evil
07. Age Of Famine
08. Ushabti Reanimator
09. Rape Of The Black Earth
10. To Walk Forth From Flames Unscathed
