NILE
In Their Darkened Shrines (Relapse Records)

By: Jeb Branin

For a millennium Egypt was one of the premier civilizations on the Earth, and the Nile was the lifeblood of the kingdom(s). Today death metal is one of the premier genres of extreme music and NILE is the lifeblood. I don't think it would be possible for anyone to listen to this CD and fail to understand why NILE have been catapulted to the top of the death metal kingdom and are the new standard by which every neophyte death metal band must bear comparisons. On "In Their Darkened Shrines" NILE is heavier, darker, and more lush than ever before. At times their complexity belies their sheer devastating barbarity, and that is exactly how they want it because this CD can, and will, crush you on both an aural and visceral level.
