NILE       Ithyphallic
Nuclear Blast (release: July 20th, 2007)

Once again inspired by Egyptian history (it will be hard to do something else now with such a name !), Karl Sanders and his gang are back with a fifth marble disc in their satchel, on which you can find every ingredients which already made their success: some parts in a stifling torpor and some orchestral interludes worth figuring on the soundtrack of any pharaoh's movie, with brutal, ultra-fast and technical Death Metal in the background.
They also carry on taking part, as on their former outlets, in the "longest title of the music history's contest". This time, it's on track #4, with Papyrus Containing The Spell To Preserve Its Possessor Against Attacks From He Who Is In The Water. And that's how we incidentally inflate a review !
Without attracting attention, NILE are conquering the throne of American Death Metal and if they continue that way, they'll end up waking Ramsey II's mummy !...Laurent
