This album is epic from start to finish. The highlights are Kafir, Utterances of the Crawling Dead, 4th Arra of Dagon, Permitting the Noble Dead to Descent into the Underworld, and Iskander d'ul Karnon. They are fast, heavy and brutal.
If you don't already know what to expect with Nile, the lyrical themes are ancient Egyptian mythology, religion, war and mysticism; the guitars are technical and crunchy; and the drumming is insanely fast.
Nile have outdone themselves again, demonstrating musical mastery with impressive instrumental creativity and execution. Dallas' vocals are somewhat more pronounced than usual, and Kollias' inhuman drumming sets the album apart from others.
If it's hard-hitting death metal you're looking for, look no further - Those Whom the Gods Detest is a masterpiece. This is not for emos and this is not for MTV.
