Nile – Those Whom the Gods Detest
Genre: Death Metal
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
Before this album, I’ve only heard a couple songs from Nile, and what I heard I liked. So when I saw the new disc at HMV, I grabbed it.
And am I glad I did. Super heavy and twice as hard music with some of the most brutal death metal vocals I’ve ever heard, all with the basic backdrop of ancient Egypt.
It’s another of those albums that makes my job really easy. Nile, FTW.
9 out of 10.
