Nile reveal details on new album “Vile Nilotic Rites”
Technical death metal Egyptologists Nile have announced they will release their ninth album, “Vile Nilotic Rites”, on November 1st via Nuclear Blast.
Now the band gives fans a taste of the album with the release of the first single “Long Shadows Of Dread”. Mastermind Karl Sanders comments: “I am thankful the day has finally arrived that we can share with fans the first single from “Vile Nilotic Rites”. It’s the opening track on the new disc, and a song we will be thoroughly enjoying playing live on our upcoming EU and USA tours. “Long Shadows…” was chosen as the first song we want people to hear from this upcoming album as this crushing track should leave NO DOUBT in anyone’s mind concerning the uncompromising, brutal, destructive intent evident throughout the entirety of the “Vile Nilotic Rites” album. I would also like to thank our fans who have been patiently waiting while we worked tirelessly to make this record undeniably the best Nile record in many years.”
