Nile: Black Seeds of Vengeance
Awaken the mighty Apophis! In two short years, Nile has established itself as a potent musical entity so massive and vital that they live up to the stature of the renowned river from which their name is derived.
Black Seeds Of Vengeance is a merciless, scathing death metal assault that builds off the energy and color of the band's critically-acclaimed debut, Amongst The Catacombs Of Nephren-Ka, and presents Nile's fury in an even more epic, brutal and profound light. Fusing unique, technical death metal flavored with Middle Eastern tones, a lyrical approach formed from the interpretation of ancient Egyptian temple carvings, hieroglyphics and tomb paintings, and a symphonic approach to songwriting and arrangement,
Nile raises the benchmark for death metal musically, lyrically and conceptually. Violent passages of hyper-grinding ferocity erupt from ominous, funereal tranquility as the lyrics and music paint vivid tales of conquest, subjugation, war and domination. Black Seeds Of Vengeance is a monumental testimony of power as vicious guitar riffs lash out amongst tremendous drum blasts, frenzied solos and a domineering three-vocalist onslaught. A sprawling, ambitious masterwork utilizing traditional instruments such as tempuras, sitars, gongs, kettle drums and Tibetan Doom horns along with African choirs and layers of harmonious sound as thick as the sacred walls of ancient tombs, Black Seeds Of Vengeance is cinematic in both scope and feel and cements Nile's place in the pantheon of metal elite..
