Album Review

Egyptian themes and imagery separate Nile from other death metal bands but their musicianship and creativity are what make them really stand out. Each composition on Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka feels like an encapsulated epic, brought about by skilled dynamics that never surrender Nile's unapologetic brutality. Adding to the epic feel is the group's bold decision to experiment with chanting, percussion, gongs, and flutes. These experiments are particularly potent when used to offset quiet and loud; the middle eastern flute placed against the hell summoning wall of sound on "Opening of the Mouth" is a fierce example. Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka is a stand-out death metal release, expanding the genre's scope but staying true to its extreme, blood soaked roots. This release is a must for long time death metal fans and an excellent place for new listeners to begin.

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.
